What is the most amusing couplet to Martin anyone has heard sung, will try and incorporate them in my next rendition.

I saw a maid milk a bull
Every stroke a bucketful

I saw xxxx xxxxx dance
He was in a drunken trance

I heard myself sing in tune
I was in a drunken swoon



Thanks for reminding me - I haven't sung this for years!

One of the 'new' couplets I enjoy --

I saw a Butterfly flutter by
And a Dragonfly drink a flagon dry

Not new, but I like

I saw a toad on the road
Singing in the Dorian mode...

I know the words to every song,
But some times I don't get them right.

Saw a wren kill a man
With his dag in his hand.

Very early verse - probably late C18.
Wren was a 'camp-follower'
Dag was a knife or by extension a male organ.
