Four stiff-standers

Melody -

Four stiff-standers,
Four dilly-danders,
Two lookers,
Two crookers,
And a wig-wag.

This picturesque description of a cow, best-known in the north of England, has many versions, from many European countries. It has been described by one American authority on riddles as a 'world riddle'.
