As I went out on yonder gap I saw a man giving a call his beard was red his mouth was born and such a man was never born (a cock)
As round as an apple as deep as a cup all the men in Derry would not lift it up (a well)
I have a gray goose she is of a great size the man that would buy her would need to be wise she has feet in her bellie and walks upon none she is far from her lodging and seldom comes home (a ship)
Black white blue and green the nicest sight that ever you seen (a mag)
