Does Anyone Know a Song with the Line, “The Ship Sailed for the White Cliffs of Dover”?

Dan wrote,

I went to school in Chilton (England) when I was six (1972), in California now, and my class sang this song, but that is the only line I can recall, I even recall the melody…

“And when the journey was all over /
The ship sailed for the /
White Cliffs of Dover.”

Anybody? Was it maybe a song about a ship with two cats and the crew were all mice, and when they got home all that was left were two fat cats?


If anyone can help Dan, please let us know in the comments below.
