The Owl and the Pussycat

Words to the children's nursery rhyme and song 'The Owl and the Pussycat'

The Owl and the Pussycat

The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat
They took some honey, and plenty of money
Wrapped up in a five pound note
The Owl looked up to the stars above
And sang to a small guitar
O lovely Pussy, O Pussy my love
What a beautiful Pussy you are
You are, you are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are

Pussy said to the Owl, You elegant fowl
How charmingly sweet you sing
O let us be married, too long we have tarried
But what shall we do for a ring?
They sailed away, for a year and a day
To the land where the Bong-tree grows
And 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 you willing to sell for one shilling
Your ring? Said the Piggy, I will.
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill
They dined on mince, and slices of quince
Which they ate with a runcible spoon
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand
They danced by the light of the moon
The moon, the moon
They danced by the light of the moon
