Ahem...

"She stood on the bridge at midnight,
Her lips were all a-quiver,
She gave a cough,
Her leg fell off,
And floated down the river"

"There was a young man from Dumbarton,
Who thought he could run like a spartan,
At the 39th lap
His braces went snap
And his face went a red Scottish tartan"

I had read this first in a set of books when I was young like 10 or something, that was the early 90s I think. I am currently looking for these set of books, I think they are out of print, this saddens me.
If anyone knows the books in question when I might buy them, please contact me.
Some of the best knock knocks and riddles ever written found in those books.
Sorry to leave such a long reply.
Thanks for your time.
