Owl and Pussycat Nursery Rhyme

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 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!’
