My mother sung a version of this nursery rhyme to me when I was a baby and I am now desperately searching for the lyrics! Can anyone help me? Where do I look?

Katy

In an hour or two someone will wearily but politely post here for you the usual instructions on how to use the search facility which is on the page you started your 'thread' from. Basically you type in key words - frog or froggie or wooing, and a bunch of lyric options will appear.
However, you may well not find the words you hope to get. This 'nursery rhyme' has been around for hundreds of years in the UK, the USA, and all English-speaking lands, and there are many many many versions and variants.
Good luck.

You can find several versions by a search for #306

A facsimile of the earliest extant copy is on the SCA Minstrel website. Click on the Thomas Ravenscroft link.
Correction, it's not a facimile now, but a modern transcription from Melismata, with music, as a .gif

My mother sang only the first stanza:

A frog he would a-wooing go --
Hi-ho! says Raleigh --
Whether his mother would let him or no,
To my rolypoly gammon and spinach --
Hi-ho! says Anthony Raleigh.

And if you look at the very beginning of this thread, before the first post, you'll see links both to the Digital Tradition (with words and sometimes music for various versions), and previous threads. You'll come up with more variants than you can shake a mouse at.
