Lyrics

If I'd as much money as I could spend,
I never would cry old chairs to mend;
Old chairs to mend, old chairs to mend;
I never would cry old chairs to mend.

If I'd as much money as I could tell,
I never would cry old clothes to sell;
Old clothes to sell, old clothes to sell;
I never would cry old clothes to sell.

Information About Old Chairs To Mend

Old chairs to mend is a nursery rhyme that portrays the street cry of a chair bottomer/mender.

During the 1800's and the 1900's, a chair mender would carry with him materials to mend the bottoms and backs of chairs. These materials included; rope, splint or cord.

He would have been heard every day by the townspeople.

The deeper meaning of this rhyme commemorates a common job which has been lost through the years, and the rhyme helps keep it alive.

"If I'd as much money, as I could spend, I never would cry "Old chairs to mend", meaning that if the chair mender had more money, he wouldn't be mending chairs.
