Old Chairs to Mend

Nursery Rhyme Lyrics, Origins and History

 

The nursery rhyme 'Old chairs to mend' reflects the street cry of the chair bottomer. This cry would have been heard every day in the town streets of the 1700 and 1800's. The chair mender would carry with him the materials required to mend the bottoms or backs of chairs such as rush, splint, rope or cord. A nursery rhyme that commemorates an ordinary common job which would surely be lost in time if it were not for the humble Nursery rhyme.
