Frog Went A-Courtin’


(Folk song)

1. A frog went a-courtin’, he did ride, a-ha, ho ho.
A frog went a-courtin’, he did ride,
With sword and pistol by his side, a-ha, ho ho.

2. Well he rode down to Miss Mouse’s door…
Where he had often been before…

3. He took Miss Mousie on his knee…
Said “Miss Mousie will you marry me…”

4. I’ll have to ask my Uncle Rat
See what he will say to that

5. Well, Uncle Rat laughed and shook his fat sides
To think his niece would be a bride

6. Well, Uncle Rat rode off to town
To buy his niece a wedding gown

7. Where will the wedding supper be
Way down yonder in a hollow tree

8. What will the wedding supper be
A fried mosquito and a roasted flea

9. First to come in were to little ants
Fixing around to have a dance

10. Next to come in was a bumble bee
Bouncing a fiddle on his knee

11. Next to come in was a fat sassy lad
Thinks himself as big as his dad

12. Thinks himself a man indeed
Because he chews the tobacco weed

13. And next to come in was a big tomcat
He swallowed the frog and the mouse and the rat
