Hob shoe hob

Melody -

Hob, shoe, hob,
Hob, shoe, hob,
Here a nail,
And there a nail
And that's well shod.

The source of the words hasn't been traced, but the verse shot into popularity in Britain in the spring of 1950 when it was broadcast day after day in the BBC's newly-introduced programme for children under five, 'Listen with Mother'. It was set to a tune composed by Miss Ann Driver, who had collected the verse from a friend whose grandfather used to recite it.
