    Hans Grovendraad, an honest clown,
    By cobbling in his native town,
    Had earned a living ever.
    His work was strong and clean and fine,
    And none who served at Crispin's shrine
    Was at his trade more clever.

As he cobbled and hammered from morning till dark,
With the footgear to mend on his knees,
Stitching patches, or pegging on soles as he sang,
Out of tune, ancient catches and glees.

I was not made of common calf,
Nor ever meant for country loon;
If with an axe I seem cut out,
The workman was no cobbling clown;
A good jack boot with double sole he made,
To roam the woods, or through the rivers wade.
