Young Folk Froggie went a-courting

Froggie went a courtin' and he did ride, uh-huh (x2)
Froggie went a courtin' and he did ride
A sword and a pistol by his side, uh-huh

Rode till he came to Miss Mousie's door, uh-huh
Where he had been many times before, uh-huh

Said Miss Mouse, are you within, uh-huh
Yes kind sir, I sit and spin, uh-huh

Took Miss Mousie on his knee, uh-huh
Said Miss Mousie, will you marry me, uh-huh

Without my Uncle Rat's consent, uh-huh
I wouldn't marry the president, uh-huh

When uncle rat gave his consent, uh-huh
The weazel wrote the publishment, uh-huh

Where will the wedding breakfast be, uh-huh
Way down yonder in the hollow tree, uh-huh

What will the wedding breakfast be, uh-huh
Fried mosquito and a black-eyed pea, uh-huh

They all went sailing across the lake, uh-huh
Got swallowed up by a big fat snake, uh-huh

That was the end of him and her, uh-huh
There'll be no little tadpoles covered in fur, uh-huh

There's bread and cheese upon the shelf, uh-huh
If you want anymore you can sing it yourself, uh-huh
