These would have been the cries of chair-menders, fishmongers & ragpickers as they sold their wares daily on the streets of Oxford in the 1700s & 1800s.
Chairs to mend, old chairs to mend,
Mackerel, fresh mackerel,
Any old rags, any old rags?
Change lyrics to reflect what people sell nowadays, for instance, imagine what sellers in a mall might be calling as you walk by.
New gym shoes, buy new gym shoes,
Video game, fun video game,
Warm hot dogs, warm hot dogs.
