  1. I have a house a mouse can't live in it and all the men in the world couldn't count the windows in it.
    A timble.
    There is a well behind the house and in the well there is a cup and in the cup there is a sup that everyone must take.
    A flock of white sheep on a red hill they always keep troting and never keep still.
    Your teeth.
    When does a fire loose its temper.
    When it goes out.
    Why does a horse look over the ditch
    Because he cannot look under it
    Ding dang under a bank ten drawing four
    Milking a cow
    I have a little sister inside the ditch and if you go near her she will give you the itch.
    A nettle.
