Shoe the Colt Shoe

Melody -

Patting the five toes

Shoe the colt, shoe!
Shoe the wild mare;
Put a sack on her back,
See if she'll bear.
If she'll bear,
We'll give her some grains;
If she won't bear,
We'll dash out her brains!
  Shoe a little horse,
Shoe a little mare,
But let the little colt
Go bare, bare, bare.

Shoe the horse
And shoe the mare,
But let the little colt go bare.

Infant amusement, in which the words are repeated while patting the soles of the feet.
