In short, the story is about an owl and pussycat that went to sea in a pea-green boat (taking along some honey and money). The owl played a small guitar and sang to the pussycat. They decided to marry but had to sail for a year and a day to a place where a piggy with a ring at the end of his nose lived. They bought the ring from the pig and were married the next day by the turkey who lived on the hill. They dined and then went hand in hand to the edge of the sand and danced by the light of the moon.
