Two legs sat upon three legs

Melody -

Two legs sat upon three legs,
With one leg in his lap;
In comes four legs,
Runs away with one leg;
Up jumps two legs,
Catches up three legs,
Throws it after four legs,
And makes him bring back one leg.

(You won't be surprised to learn that 'one leg' is a leg of mutton; two legs, a man; 'three legs', a stool; 'four legs', a dog.)
