The Owl and The Pussy Cat

The Owl and The Pussy Cat by Edward Lear
The Owl and the Pussy Cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money
Wrapped up in a five pund 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,
What a beautiful pussy you are!

Pussy said to 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 saied 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!
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 runcibile spoon;
And hand in hand,on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon
The danced by the light of the moon!
