Mixed Media Art Question - hole in my pocket

by Chris
(Seattle)

When we were kids we memorized this poem, There's a hole in my pocket, by a little boy. It was something like .....there's a hole and there's a string

and once I had a XXX ring
and through a hole I lost it one day...
and this is what I always say
A hole's the worst thing in a pocket
be sure to mend it when you got it.


Do you know this poem? I am off on a few of the lines and do not know the author. I am looking desperately for it.

Thanks for any help,

Hi,

I am afraid I do not know who the author of this poem is ... I had a search around google but nothing seems to come up either ..

Maybe it was an old children's rhyme that was handed down .. but I personally have never heard it ..
It might be worth searching for " hole in pocket saying" , " hole in pocket rhyme" .. etc ...

Sorry I cant be of anymore help ...

I've Got It!
by: Carla

I remember that poem from when I was a child! My dad would read it to us with a lispy kind of accent. All my siblings and I have very fond memories of it, and located it again some years ago so we could recite it to the nieces and nephews. I have some parts of it memorized from more than 40 years ago.

It starts like this: Do you know what's in my pottet? Such a lot of treasures in it. Listen now while I bedin it. Such a lot of sings it holds. And every thing that's in my pottet, and how and where and when I dot it.

Anyway, I googled the first two lines and came up with this page whose first two listings lead to the poem. I didn't realize it was so old! One version is from the 1800's and slightly different than the one we learned. The other has some typos in it but sounds more like the one I remember.

Here's the link:

Enjoy! It was such fun to see your question on Milliande's wonderful site and know that I could help someone reunite with this fun poem.

Hole in My Bucket?
by: Jody

That was the first thing that came to my mind, also, was a song I knew as a child. I found this version with lyrics on wikipedia, but nothing closer so far. I hope this helps!

Maybe?
by: Trish

It sounds similar to "Hole in My Pocket/Bucket dear Eliza/Liza". The words change depending on where you are from I think. Sometimes it says "I had a ring but lost it" others it is a "dime".
