  • 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 a five-pound note.
    The Owl look up to the stars above,
    And sang to a small guitar,
    'O lovely Pussy, O Pussy, my love,
    What a beautiful Pussy you are,
    You are,
    You are!
    What a beautiful Pussy you are!

    - Edward Lear, 'The Owl and the Pussycat'.
