Mother Goose Rhymes
I saw a ship a-sailing,

I saw a ship a-sailing,
a-sailing on the sea,
and oh but it was 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 all 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".
