Froggy Went A-Courting (Lyrics)

Traditional, Arr. Mike Oldfield
Vocals by Vanessa Branson

A froggy went a-courting and he did ride,
A froggy went a-courting and he did ride,
A froggy went a-courting on a little white horse,
A sword and pistol by his side.

He went down to Miss mouse’s door,
He went down to Miss mouse’s door,
He went down to Miss mouse’s door,
Where he had been many times before.

Then he took Miss mouse upon his knee,
And he took Miss mouse upon his knee,
And he took Miss mouse upon his knee,
And he said Miss mouse, will you marry me?

Without my uncle rat’s consent,
I’m afraid without my uncle rat’s consent,
Oh, no! Without my uncle rat’s consent,
I would not marry the President.

Then uncle rat laughed and shook his fat sides,
Yes, then uncle rat alughed and shook his fat sides,
Uncle rat laughed and shook his fat sides,
To think that his niec e would be a bride.

Then he said: Where will the wedding breakfast be?
Oh, where will the wedding breakfast be?
W here will the wedding breakfast be?
Way down yonder in that hollow tree.

The owls did hoot and the birds they sang,
The owls did hoot and the birds they sang,
The owls did hoot and the birds they sang,
Though the woods the music rang.

And they all went sailing across the lake,
And they all went sailing across the lake,
And they all went sailing across the lake,
And they got swollowed up by a big fat snake.

There’s bread and cheese upon the shelf,
There’s bread and cheese upon the shelf,
There’s bread and cheese upon the shelf,
If you want any more, you can sing it yourself.
