Riddles and More Rhymes Songbook

“All these rhymes are usually performed. The rhymes included here are ones which mostly have no other function than to amuse. The riddles, catches and sayings, as well as many of the rhymes, belong to the countryside rather than the town.
Answers to the riddles are usually things that can be seen on a farm. In ‘Porridge and whey’ hired farm workers say what they think of the breakfasts they get – or used to get – from farmers who hired them.” — Hugh Shields, 1971
