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
apples in the hold
The sails were made of silk
And the masts were made of gold

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!
Quack! Quack!
Quack! Quack!
