Miss Lucy’s Playground Songs

Frog Went a Courtin’

Posted on: August 8, 2008

Bob Dylan does a great version of this song. 🙂

Frog went a’ courtin’ he did ride, hmm (2x)
Frog went a’ courtin he did ride
Sword and his pistol by his side, hmm

Rode right up to Miss Mouse’s door, hmm (2x)
He rode right up to Miss Mouse’s door
Gave three raps and a very loud roar, hmm

Said he, “Miss Mouse are you within?”…
…”Yes kind sir I sit and spin”

He took Miss Moussie on his knee…
Said, “Miss Mouse will you marry me?”

“Without my Uncle Rat’s consent…”
“I wouldn’t marry the president”

Uncle Rat he laughed and shook his fat sides…
To think his niece would be a bride

Uncle Rat went a runnin’ down to town…
To buy his niece a wedding gown

Where shall the wedding supper be…
Way down yonder in a hollow tree

What shall the wedding supper be…
A fried mosquito and a black eyed pea

First to come in was a flying moth…
She laid out the table cloth

Next to come in, a juney bug…
A caryin’ a water jug

Next to come in was a bumberly bee
Set his fiddle on his knee

Next to come in was a broken-backed flea
A dancin’ a jig with the bumberly bee

Next to come in was Mrs. Cow
Tried to dance but didn’t know how

Next to come in was a little black tick
He ate so much it made him sick

Next to come in was Dr. Fly
Said Mr. Tick would surely die

Next to come was a big black snake
He ate up all the wedding cake

Next to come in was an old grey cat
She swallowed the rat and ate up the rat

Mr. Frog went a jumpin’ over the brook
A lily white duck came and swallowed him up

Little piece of corn bread lying on the shelf
If want any more you can sing it yourself
