Lyrics

Froggy went a courtin’ and he did ride, uh huh – uh huh
Froggy went a courtin’ and he did ride, hey hey – hey hey
Froggy went a courtin’ and he did ride
with candy and flowers by his side. uh huh, hey hey, oh yea

He rode up to Miss Mousie’s door, uh huh – uh huh
He rode up to Miss Mousie’s door, hey hey – hey hey
He rode up to Miss Mousie’s door
where he had often been before. uh huh, hey hey, oh yea

Said Miss Mousie, are you within, uh huh – uh huh
Said Miss Mousie, are you within, hey hey – hey hey
Said Miss Mousie, are you within? Miss Mousie said
I sit and spin. uh huh, hey hey, oh yea

Took Miss Mousie on his knee, uh huh – uh huh
Took Miss Mousie on his knee, hey hey – hey hey
Took Miss Mousie on his knee, Said Miss Mousie
will you marry me? uh huh, hey hey, oh yea

Without my Uncle Rat’s consent, uh huh – uh huh
Without my Uncle Rat’s consent, hey hey – hey hey
Without my Uncle Rat’s consent
I wouldn’t marry the President. uh huh, hey hey, oh yea

Uncle Rat laughed, and he shook his sides, uh huh – uh huh
Uncle Rat laughed, and he shook his sides, hey hey – hey hey
Uncle Rat laughed, and he shook his sides
to think his niece would be a bride. uh huh, hey hey, oh yea

Where shall this fancy wedding be, uh huh – uh huh
Where shall this fancy wedding be, hey hey – hey hey
Where shall this fancy wedding be?
Way down yonder in the hollow tree. uh huh, hey hey, oh yea

They married then they had a child, uh huh – uh huh
They married then they had a child, hey hey – hey hey
They married then they had a child.
He grew up and left after while. uh huh, hey hey, oh yea

Then he went a courtin’ and he did ride, uh huh – uh huh
That Froggy went a courtin’ and he did ride, hey hey – hey hey
That Froggy went a courtin’ and he did ride
looking for his own Miss Mousie bride! uh huh, hey hey, oh yea;
uh huh, hey hey, oh yea; uh huh, hey hey, oh yea
