There is a wee house on the road passing by
Well covered with thatch, well pulled with corn,
And if you go in you will get lodging all worn
A rat in a corn stack.
How many yards of calico would make a cap for Benbo

What goes through the water and never touches the water.
A man in a boat.
How could you compare a wood to a luggage van.
Both are full of trunks.
Why should you never starve at the seaside?
Because each wave brings in a roll.

Niddy Noddy round body, three feet and a metal hat.
A pot.
One half dead, the other half living, and a tail wagging.
A dog with its head in a pot.
What sleeps with its finger in its eye
The crook
Spell blackwater in 3 letters? Ink
