American Ballads and Folk Songs
The next came in was Mister Tick, He ate so much till it made him sick.
The first came in was an old brown cow, Tried to dance and didn't know how*
The next came in was an old gray mare, Hip stuck out and shoulder bare.
The next came in was a little black dog, Chased Miss Mousie in a hollow log.
The next came in was an old tomcat, Swallowed Miss Mouse as slick as a rat.
Mr. Frog he went down to the lake,
And there he was swallowed by a big black snake.
Big black snake he swam to land, And was killed by a Negro man.
Negro man he went to France, And that's the end of my romance.
So here's the end of one, two, three, The snake, the frog, and Miss Mousie.
There's bread and cheese upon the shelf, If you want any, just help yourself.
