...you're my singer, let me be your song...



The Owl And The Pussycat

Music by Donovan P. Leitch, lyrics by Edward Lear

The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea
In a beautiful peagreen 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
"Oh, lovely Pussy, oh, 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
