I Saw a Ship A Sailing

I saw a ship a-sailing, 

A-sailing on the sea; 

And oh! it was a-laden

With pretty things for thee. 

There were comfits in the cabin, 

And apples in the hold; 

The sails were made of silk,

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 was sailing,

The captain said, 'Quack! quack!
