A Pleasant Ship

I saw a ship a-sailing,
A-sailing on the sea,
And Oh! it was all 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 made of gold.

The four and twenty sailors
That stood between the decks
Were four-and-twenty white mice,
With chains around 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!
