Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez – The Owl And The Pussycat lyrics

The owl and the pussycat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat
They brought some money and plenty of honey
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.
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 the wood, a piggy-wig stood
With a ring at the end of his nose
His nose, his nose

"Dear pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling,
Mmm your ring? " Piggy said, "I will. "
They took it away and were married next day
By a 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 by 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
