and we set out to sea,
when the moon was hanging high;
Our parents sleeping in their beds,
Unaware the time was nigh…
We filled our ship with twine and treats
and birds and hanging plants…
We strung up sails with silken sheets,

A gypsy breeze began to blow
and caught us in her howl,
a skip and a wink and away we go
the pussy cat and owl…
(PERFECT couple!!! Btw: we know what’s under those glasses…and that collar…ahem, Mr. High and Mighty)
