Nursery Rhymes

The Owl And The Pussy-Cat

by Edward Lear (1812-1888)


The Owl and the Pussy-cat 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 looked 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!’


Pussy said to the Owl, ‘You elegant fowl!

How charmingly sweet you sing!

O let us be married! too long we have tarried:

But what shall we do for a ring?’

They sailed away, for a year and a day,

To the land where the Bong-tree grows

And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood

With a ring at the end of his nose,

His nose,

His nose,

With a ring at the end of his nose.


‘Dear pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling

Your ring?’Said the Piggy,’I will.’

So they took it away, and were married next day

By the Turkey who lives on the hill.

They dined on mince, and slices of quince,

Which they ate with a runcible spoon;

And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,

They danced by the light of the moon,

The moon,

The moon,

They danced by the light of the moon.

A wise old owl

A wise old owl lived in an oak

The more he saw the less he spoke

The less he spoke the more he heard.

Why can’t we all be like that wise old bird?

A Moon Song

Who hung his hat on the moon?

The owl in his bubble balloon.

One bright summer night

He sailed out of sight,

And, hooting like Lucifer, hung in delight

His three-cornered hat on the moon.

An Owl

by Edward Lear

There was an Old Man with an Owl,

Who continued to bother and howl;

He sat on a rail, and imbibed bitter ale,

Which refreshed that Old Man and his Owl.

Bow, Wow, Says The Dog

Bow, wow, says the dog;

Mew, mew, says the cat;

Grunt, grunt, goes the hog;

And squeak goes the rat.

Tu-whu, says the owl;

Caw, caw, says the crow;

Quack, quack, says the duck;

And what the sparrows say, you know.
