A Frog He Went A-courting
B
2   He rode up to Miss Mouse's door Where he had never been before.
3   He says : Miss Mouse, won't you marry me ? No, not without Uncle Rat will agree.
4   Uncle Rat went a-running down to town To get his niece a wedding gown.
5   The frog would laugh and shake his fat sides To think that mouse would be his bride.
6   O where will the wedding supper be ? Away down yonder in the hollow tree.
7   O what will the wedding supper be ? Three green beans and a black eyed pea.
8   The first come in was a bumble bee With his fiddle on his knee.
9   The next come in was an old fat goose, He began to fiddle and she got loose.
10  The next come in was the old torn cat, He says : I'll put a stop to that.
11   The goose she then flew up on the wall, And then she got an awful fall.
12   The goose she then flew up on the wall, And old torn cat put a stop to it all.
