Natalie Merchant I Saw A Ship A-Sailing Lyrics

Last updated: 09/26/2010 11:00:00 AM

Well I saw a ship a sailing
It was sailing on the sea
It was full of pretty things
For baby and for me

There were sweetmeats in the cabin
There were apples in the hold
The sails were made of silk
And the masts were made of gold

I saw a ship a sailing
It was sailing on the sea
It was full of pretty things
For baby and for me

The four-and-twenty sailors
That stood upon the decks
Were four-and-twenty little mice
With chains around their necks

And the captain was a yellow duck
With a packet on his back
And when the ship began to move
The captain cried,a latter lap

I saw a ship a sailing
It was sailing on the sea
It was full of pretty things
For baby and for me
