the owl & the pussycat went to sea
in a beautiful pea-green boat,
they took some honey, & plenty of money,
wrapped up in a five pound note.
the owl looked up to the stars above,
& sang to a small guitar,
'o lovely pussy! o pussy my love,
wot a beautiful pussy U are, U are, U are,
wot a beautiful pussy U are'.
pussy said to the owl ' U elegant fowl,
how charmingly sweet U sing.
o let us get married, too long we have tarried;
but wot shall we do for a ring?'
they sailed away, for a year & a day,
to the land where the bong-tree grows,
& there in a wood a piggy-wig stood
with a ring at the end of his nose, his nose, his nose,
with a ring at the end of his nose.
'dear pig, are U willing to sell for one shilling, your ring?'
said the piggy, 'i will'
so they took it away , & were married next day
by the turkey who lives on the hill.
they dined on mince, & slices of quince,
which they ate with a runcible spoon.
they danced by the light of the moon, the moon, the moon,
they danced by the light of the moon.
