A favorite childhood memory of mine the nursery rhyme There was An Old Woman who Lived In A Shoe i loved this Nursery rhyme a favorite memory of mine A memory in time.

The most common version of the rhyme is:

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children, she didn’t know what to do;
She gave them some broth without any bread;
Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.

The earliest printed version in Joseph Ritson’s Gammer Gurton’s Garland in 1794 has the coarser last line:

She whipp’d all their bums, and sent them to bed.

There were many other variations printed in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries

Then out went th’ old woman to bespeak ’em a coffin,
And when she came back, she found ’em all a-loffeing.

The term “a-loffeing”, they believed, was Shakespearean, suggesting that the rhyme is considerably older than the first printed versions. They then speculated that if this were true it might have a folk lore meaning and pointed to the connection between shoes and marriage, symbolised by casting a shoe when a bride leaves for her honeymoon
