"Long-Legged Sailor"

           
   
1.
Did you ever, ever, ever, in your long legged life
Meet a long-legged sailor with a long legged wife?
No I never, never, never, in my long legged life
Met a long-legged sailor with a long legged wife.
   
           
   
2.
Did you ever, ever, ever, in your short legged life
Meet a short-legged sailor with a short legged wife?
No I never, never, never, in my short legged life
Met a short-legged sailor with a short legged wife.
   
           
    3. Did you ever, ever, ever, in your knock-kneed life
Meet a knock-kneed sailor with a knock-kneed wife?
No I never, never, never, in my knock-kneed life
Met a knock-kneed sailor with a knock-kneed wife.
   
           
    4. Did you ever, ever, ever, in your bow-legged life
Meet a bow-legged sailor with a bow-legged wife?
No I never, never, never, in my bow-legged life
Met a bow-legged sailor with a bow-legged wife.
