Ballads and Songs
2. And he rode up to Miss Mouse's door,
Whump, whump; He rode up to Miss Mouse's door And he hit so hard till he made it roar,
Whump, whump. Gilliwally, gilliwally, gunk, gunk, gunk; Gilliwally, gilliwally, gunk, gunk, gunk.
3. Then Miss Mousie let him in,
Whump, whump; And the way they courted was a sin,
Whump, whump. Gilliwally, gilliwally, gunk, gunk, gunk; Gilliwally, gilliwally, gunk, gunk, gunk.
4. He took Miss Mousie on his knee,
Whump, whump; And he said, "Miss Mousie, will you marry me?"
Whump, whump. Gilliwally, gilliwally, gunk, gunk, gunk; Gilliwally, gilliwally, gunk, gunk, gunk.
