Subject: Chord Req: the owl and the pussycat
im looking for the chords to this song....i remeber it as a child as a poem.....but have heard people make it to music....


The owl and the puss-y-cat went to sea
in a beau-ti-ful pea green boat;
They took some hon-ey and plent-y of mon-ey
wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the moon a-bove
and sang to a small guit-ar,
"O love-ly Puss-y! O Puss-y my love!
What a beau-ti-ful Puss-y you are, You are,
What a beau-ti-ful Puss-y you are!"

Puss-y said to the Owl, "You el-e-gant fowl!
How won-der-ful sweet you sing!
Oh, let us be mar-ried, too long have we tar-ried,
But what shall we do for a ring?"
They sailed a-way for a year and a day
To the land where the Bong-tree grows,
And there in a wood a pig-gy-wig stood
With a ring on the end of his nose, His nose
With a ring on the end of his nose.

"Dear Pig are you will-ing to sell for one shill-ing
Your ring?" Said the pig-gy, "I will."
So they took it a-way and were mar-ried next day
By the tur-key who lives on the hill.
They dined up-on mince and slic-es of quince,
Which they ate with a run-cib-le spoon,
And hand in hand on the edge of the sand
They danced by the light of the moon, The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.
