Lyrics English

Froggie went a courtin' and he did ride
Sword and pistol by his side
He rode up to miss Mousey's door
Where he'd often been before
He said "Miss Mouse are you with-in"
"Just lift the latch and please come in."
He took miss mousey on his knee Said,
Miss mouse, will you marry me.
Without my uncle rat's consent
I would not marry the president
Now, uncle rat when he came home
Said, who's been here since I'd been gone?
A very fine gentleman's been here
Who wishes me to be his dear.
And uncle rat laughed and shook his side
To think his niece would be a bride
So uncle Rat he went to town
To buy his niece a wedding gown
Where shall the wedding breakfast be?
Way down yonder in the hollow tree
And what will the wedding breakfast be
Two green beans and a black-eye pea
The first to come was a bumblebee
He danced a jig with mill Mousey
The next to come was mister Drake
He ate up all the wedding cake
They all went sailing on the lake
And they all got swallowed by a big black snake
That's the end of one, two, three
The rat, the frog and miss mousey
There's bread and cheese upon the shelf
If you want any more just sing it yourself
