The owl and the p____-cat went to sea
in a beautiful peagreen boat.
They took some honey and plenty of money
Wrapped up in five pound note.
The owl looked up to the stars above
And sang to a small guitar,
"Oh lovely p____, oh p____, my love,
What a beautiful p____ you are, you are, you are,
What a beautiful p____ you are! "

p____ 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
