A frog went a-courtin’

Lyrics

A frog went a-courtin’ and he did ride, M-hm, M-hm
A frog went a-courtin’ and he did ride
Sword and pistol by his side, M-hm, M-hm

He rode up to Miss Mousie’s door, M-hm, M-hm
He rode up to Miss Mousie’s door
Where he’d often been before, M-hm, M-hm

He said, “Miss Mouse, are you within?’ M-hm, M-hm
He said, “Miss Mouse, are you within?”
“Yes, kind sir, I sit and spin”. M-hm, M-hm

He took Miss Mouse upon his knee, M-hm, M-hm
He took Miss Mouse upon his knee and
Said “Miss Mouse, will you marry me?’ M-hm, M-hm

“Without my Uncle Rat’s consent, M-hm, M-hm
Without my Uncle Rat’s consent
I wouldn’t marry the President”. M-hm, M-hm

Uncle Rat laughed and shook his fat sides, M-hm, M-hm
Uncle Rat laughed and shook his fat sides
To think his niece would be a bride, M-hm, M-hm

Then Uncle Rat rode off to town, M-hm, M-hm
Then Uncle Rat rode off to town
To buy his niece a wedding gown, M-hm, M-hm

“Oh, where will the wedding supper be?’ M-hm, M-hm
“Oh where will the wedding supper be?”
“Way down yonder in the hollow tree”. M-hm, M-hm

The first to come was the little white moth, M-hm, M-hm
The first to come was the little white moth
She spread out the tablecloth, M-hm, M-hm
The next to come was the bumblebee, M-hm, M-hm
The next to come was the bumblebee who
Played the fiddle upon his knee, M-hm, M-hm

The next to come was a little flea, M-hm, M-hm
The next to come was a little flea who
Danced a jig with the bumblebee, M-hm, M-hm
The next to come was Missus Cow, M-hm, M-hm
The next to come was Missus Cow who
Tried to dance but didn’t know how, M-hm, M-hm

Now Mister Frog was dressed in green, M-hm, M-hm
Now Mister Frog was dressed in green and
Sweet Miss Mouse looked like a queen, M-hm, M-hm
In slowly walked the Parson Rook, M-hm, M-hm
In slowly walked the Parson Rook
Under his arm he carried a book, M-hm, M-hm

They all gathered round the lucky pair, M-hm, M-hm
They all gathered round the lucky pair
Singing, dancing everywhere, M-hm, M-hm
Then Frog and Mouse went off to France, M-hm, M-hm
Then Frog and Mouse went off to France and
That’s the end of my romance, M-hm, M-hm
