Burl Ives – The Owl And The Pussycat chords

[Verse 1]
CThe Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
G7 In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
C Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
C7 F And sang to a small guitar,
C"O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
F C What a beautiful Pussy you are, you are,
F CWhat a beautiful Pussy you are!"
[Verse 2]
CPussy said to the Owl, "You elegant fowl!
G7 How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
C But what shall we do for a ring?"
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
C7 F To the land where the Bong-Tree grows
CAnd there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
F C With a ring at the end of his nose, his nose,
F C With a ring at the end of his nose.
[Verse 3]
C"Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
G7 Your ring?" Said the Piggy, "I will."
So they took it away, and were married next day
C By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
F Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
C7 CAnd hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
F C They danced by the light of the moon, the moon,
F CThey danced by the light of the moon.
