The Conscript

Jack Sprat would eat no fat,
He drove his missus barmy,
She bopped him in his cobblers
And made him join the army.

  1. Does “she bopped him in his cobblers” mean that she put boots on him or does it mean she hit him somewhere? Seems like an interesting solution, either way. Perhaps the army’s strenuous requirements will reduce his strenuous dislike of fat?
