What grows in the wood and rounds in the town, and eases his master many a pound?
A Fiddle.
Cut a bit of it and still it will get longer.
A Grave.
Why should a horse never be hungry on a journey.
Because it always has a bit in it's mouth.
Did you ever hear the story of the two wells?
Well, well.
Flowers from England, fruit from Spain, met together in a shower of rain. Put in a bag and tied with a string. If you answer this silly riddle I'll give you my ring?
A Plum Pudding.
If you take this dog and cut his head.
Don't you expect that now it's dead.
But there, high above us in the sky.
A bird, quite easily I can spy.
Beagle-Eagle.
