Riddle Me Ree

Melody -

Riddle-me, riddle-me,
Perhaps you can tell
What this riddle may be:
As deep as a house,
As round as a cup,
And all the King's horses
Cannot draw it up.

Riddle: A well.
  Riddle me, riddle me ree,
A hawk sat up in a tree;
And he says to himself, says he,
Lord! what a fine bird I be!

Riddle me, riddle me ree,
A little man in a tree;
A stick in his hand,
A stone in his throat,
If you read me this riddle
I'll give you a groat.

Riddle. Solution: The hawthorn berry.
