Froggie Went a Courtin' Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Frog went a-courtin' and he did ride
Frog went a-courtin' and he did ride
Frog went a-courtin' and he did ride
With a sword and a pistol by his side

Well he rode right up to Miss Mousey's door
Well he rode right up to Miss Mousey's door
Well he rode right up to Miss Mousey's door
Gave three loud raps and a very big roar

Said, "Miss Mouse, are you within?"
Said he, "Miss Mouse, are you within?"
Said, "Miss Mouse, are you within?"
"Yes, kind sir, I sit and spin"

He took Miss Mousey on his knee
Took Miss Mousey on his knee
Took Miss Mousey on his knee
Said, "Miss Mousey, will you marry me?"

Without my uncle Rat's consent
Without my uncle Rat's consent
Without my uncle Rat's consent
I wouldn't marry the President

Uncle Rat laughed and he shook his fat sides
Uncle Rat laughed and he shook his fat sides
Uncle Rat laughed and he shook his fat sides
To think his niece would be a bride

Uncle Rat went runnin' downtown
Uncle Rat went runnin' downtown
Uncle Rat went runnin' downtown
To buy his niece a wedding gown

Where shall the wedding supper be?
Where shall the wedding supper be?
Where shall the wedding supper be?
Way down yonder in a hollow tree

What should the wedding supper be?
What should the wedding supper be?
What should the wedding supper be?
Fried mosquito in a black-eye pea

Well, first to come in was a flyin' moth
First to come in was a flyin' moth
First to come in was a flyin' moth
She laid out the table cloth

Next to come in was a juney bug
Next to come in was a juney bug
Next to come in was a juney bug
She brought the water jug

Next to come in was a bumbley bee
Next to come in was a bumbley bee
Next to come in was a bumbley bee
Sat mosquito on his knee

Next to come in was a broken black flea
Next to come in was a broken black flea
Next to come in was a broken black flea
Danced a jig with the bumbley bee

Next to come in was Mrs. Cow
Next to come in was Mrs. Cow
Next to come in was Mrs. Cow
She tried to dance but she didn't know how

Next to come in was a little black tick
Next to come in was a little black tick
Next to come in was a little black tick
She ate so much she made us sick

Next to come in was a big black snake
Next to come in was a big black snake
Next to come in was a big black snake
Ate up all of the wedding cake

Next to come in was the old gray cat
Next to come in was the old gray cat
Next to come in was the old gray cat
Swallowed the mouse and ate up the rat

Mr. Frog went a-hoppin' up over the brook
Mr. Frog went a-hoppin' up over the brook
Mr. Frog went a-hoppin' up over the brook
A lily-white duck come and swallowed him up

A little piece of cornbread layin' on a shelf
A little piece of cornbread layin' on a shelf
A little piece of cornbread layin' on a shelf
If you want anymore, you can sing it yourself
