I SAW A SHIP                    A’ SAILING     


I saw a ship, a’ sailing, a’ sailing on the sea; and oh! It was all laden, with pretty things for thee!    

There were candies in the cabin, and apples in the hold; the sails were made of silk, and the masts were made of gold.    

The four-and-twenty sailors, who stood between the decks, were four-and-twenty white mice, with chains about their necks.  

The captain was a duck, with a packet on his back; and when the ship began to move, the captain said, “Quack! Quack!”
