There was a young man who lived in a glove.
If you knocked on his door he'd give you a shove.

The Young Man Who Lives in a Glove is the title character of a lesser-known Nursery Rhyme. As his name suggests, he lives in a giant glove. He doesn't take well to people bothering him or knocking on his door. Frustrated by being confused for the Old Woman Who Lives in a Shoe, he was seen pushing a well-meaning reporter away from his door in a Sesame Street News Flash. His house is located next door to the Young Woman Who Lives in a Hat.
