German question

Good afternoon, linguaphiles, a quick question on German.

While translating a trade magazine into English, I've come across a title that suggests to me that there's a common referent:

"Kinder, Kinder, was für..."

In the case I'm doing, it's "Schuhe", but I've Googled it, and it seems very popular, with all kinds of endings. Can anyone tell me what the reference is to, and possibly a vaguely similar English equivalent? Is it part of a nursery rhyme, perhaps?
