 (Fill in the blanks - scroll down for correct answers.) 

The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea, 
In a beautiful pea green _______, 
They took some _________and plenty of money 
Wrapped up in a ten-pound note, 
The Owl looked up to the stars above 
And sang to a small __________, 
'O lovely pussy, O pussy my love 
What a beautiful pussy you are, 
You are, you are, 
What a beautiful pussy you are.' 

Pussy said to the Owl: 
'You elegant fowl' how charmingly ________ you sing  
O let us be married, too long have we tarried 
But what shall we do for a ________?' 

They sailed away for a year and a day 
To the land where the _______-tree grows 
And there in a wood a _________-Wig stood 
With a ring at the end of his nose. 

'Dear Pig are you willing to sell for a shilling 
Your ring,' said the Piggy: 'I will.' 
So they took it away and were married next day 
By the __________ who lived on the hill. 
They dined on _________ and slices of quince 
Which they ate with a runcible spoon, 
And hand in hand on the edge of the _________ 
They danced to the light of the _________, 
The moon, the moon 
They danced to the light of the moon.
