I Saw A Ship A-Sailing.

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 comfits 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

That 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!'
