Mother Goose rhymes

I Saw a Ship a Sailing

I saw a ship a-sailing,

A-sailing on the sea;

And it was full of pretty things

For baby and for me.


There  were sweetmeats in the cabin,

And apples in the hold;

The sails were made of silk,

And 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 began to move,

The captein cried,"Quack,Quack!"
