No legs lay one leg Two legs sat near on three legs four legs got some?

That almost reads like the riddle from "The Hobbit". But the "one leg" seems incorrect.

No legs is a fish.

Two legs is a Man

Three legs is a 3-legged stool

Four legs is a dog(?)

Not sure what the 1 leg is. I have a recording of J. R. R. Tolkien reading this chapter from his book.

Good show. I am the one who put on this riddle.

Yes, this is the exact wording from The Hobbit. I am sure of it, because I have the book in front of me.

Four legs is cat.

One leg is plate.

A fish lying on a table, a man sitting nearby on a stool, and the cat got some of the fish.
