I'm lying in the shade of my family tree
I'm a branch that broke off
What will become of me?

Dear Mom, I'm lying here in this queen-sized bed
I'm thinking back to all the stories you read to me
'Bout those little animals who went to sea in their beautiful pea-green boat
But I can't remember now
What happened then?
Dear Mom
How does it end?

The owl and the pussycat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat
They took some honey and lots of money
Wrapped in a five pound note
The owl looked up to the stars above
And sang to a small guitar
O lovely pussy! Pussy my love
What a wonderful pussy you are (you are, you are)

Let us be married
Too long we've tarried
But
What shall we do for a ring? (a ring)
A ring (a ring)
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
A ring at the end of his nose (his nose, his nose)
A ring at the end of his nose

And hand in hand at the edge of the sand
They danced by the light of the
By the light of the
By the light of the moon

And hand in hand at the edge of the sand
They danced by the light of the
By the light of the
By the light of the moon
The moon
The moon
