"Froggie Went A-Courtin'" as written by and Tex (arrgr) / Ritter....
Froggy went a-courting and he did ride
Hey, hey
Froggy went a-courting and he did ride
Hey, hey
Froggy went a-courting and he did ride
Sword and pistol by his side
Hey, hey, hey hey

He rode till he come to Miss Mousie's door
Hey, hey
Rode till he come to Miss Mousie's door
Hey, hey
Rode till he come to Miss Mousie's door
And he give three raps and a big loud roar
Hey, hey, hey hey

He set right in and he set right in
Hey, hey
Went right in and he took her on his knee
Hey, hey
Went right in and he took her on his knee
Said, "Miss Mouse, will you marry me?"
Hey, hey, hey hey

Well Miss Mouse said "I can't answer that"
Hey, hey
Miss Mouse said "I can't answer that"
Hey, hey
Miss Mouse said "I can't answer that
Until I've seen my brother Rat"
Hey, hey, hey hey

Uncle Rat gave his consent
Hey, hey
Uncle Rat gave his consent
Hey, hey
Uncle Rat gave his consent
The weasel wrote the publishment
Hey, hey, hey hey

Oh, where will the wedding supper be?
Hey, hey
Where will the wedding supper be?
Hey, hey
Where will the wedding supper be?
Out in the woods in an old hard tree
Hey, hey, hey hey

The first to come was a little lady bug
Hey, hey
First to come was a a little lady bug
Hey, hey
First to come was a a little lady bug
She had a great big whiskey jug
Hey, hey, hey hey

Next to come was a bumblebee
Hey, hey
Next to come was a bumblebee
Hey, hey
Next to come was a bumblebee
Danced a jig with a two-legged flea
Hey, hey, hey hey

Well owl did hoot and the birds did sing
Hey, hey
Owl did hoot and the birds did sing
Hey, hey
Hoot owl hooted, the birds they sing
Though the woods the music ring
Hey, hey, hey hey

So here's the end of the one-two-three
Hey, hey
Here's the end of the one-two-three
Hey, hey
Here's the end of the one-two-three
The snake ate the frog and Miss Mousie
Hey, hey, hey hey
