Is it whiskey, is it wine? Oh my God, it’s turpentine.”
It seems like they were just made because they rhyme. Could the Lincoln one possibly be a riddle a Confederate made during the Civil War?
Haystak Lincoln Lincoln.

We used to jump rope to it and at end ask How many pints did he drink? Then you counted by 5’s and jumped really fast until you missed. So 5, 10,15,20, 25 etc. Whoever went the furthest won.
I’ve also heard:
“Coke a Cola hits the spot, in your stomach it will rot.
Taste like water, looks like wine — Oh my god its turpentine”
