I saw a ram butt a dam - fi man fi
I saw a ram butt a dam - whose the fool now?
I saw a ram butt a dam - and a bee swim in jam
Thou hast well drunken man - whose the fool now?

====

I saw a whale chase a snail ...

Faster than by British Rail

====

I saw a sheep shearing corn ...

And a cuckold blow his horn

This will probably be lost on anyone under 50:
    I heard a swan loudly call
    Channel one-four, wall to wall


And again a touch of history:
    I saw **** buy a round
    and get change from a pound

Saw a hare chase a bear,
Twenty miles in the air.

Saw Great Harry smoking dope,
Said his dealer was the Pope.

Saw a hare chase a hound ...

50 (or 20) miles above the ground ...

===

Saw the man in the Moon ...

A cloutin' of St.Peter's shoon

====

Saw the cheese eat the rat ...

And a mouse chase a cat ...

CJB, my hare/bear couplet is clearly an ex. of the "folk process," furthered by me,since I was trying to recall something I'd heard decades ago.

I saw Les Jones debate with Diane Easby,
Saw Malcolm Douglas correct them both...

I can't actually make out Les's voice, but he's in here somewhere (as is Ged Gaskell, who left us last year). Absent friends...
