Subject: Lyr Req: Owl and pussycat
I can't believe this one isn't in the DT...A friend and I were jamming last night, and all we could recall between us was
"The Owl and the Pussycat
Went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat.
They took some honey and plenty of money
Wrapped up in five-pound note.
They sailed away
for a year and a day
to the land where the bong-tree grows..."
All we could remember of the chorus is...
"O lovely pussy, o pussy my love"
This whole ballad is actually a children's song, so it's not as salacious, avaricious, or addictive as these words might indicate.
Thanks in advance!
