American Ballads and Folk Songs
Rode till he came to Miss Mousie's door, unh-hunh,
Rode till he came to Miss Mousie's door,
He gave three raps and a very loud roar, unh-hunh, unh-hunh.
He said, "Miss Mouse, are you within?" etc "Yes, I just sat down to spin."
He went right in and took her on his knee, And he said, "Miss Mouse, will you marry me?"
Miss Mouse, she said, "I can't answer that Until I see my Uncle Rat,
"Uncle Rat's in London Town, And I don't know when he'll be down.
"Without my Uncle Rat's consent, I wouldn't marry the President."
Uncle Rat came riding home;
"Who's been here since I've been gone?"
"A very worthy gentleman,
He said he'd marry me if he can."
When Uncle Rat gave his consent, The weasel wrote the publishment.
"Where shall the wedding supper be?" "Out in the woods in an old hollow tree."
"Who shall the wedding guests be?" "A little lady bug and a bumblebee."
Mister Frog was dressed in a pea green, Mistress Mouse she looked like a queen.
