GUEST,katie Lyr Req: frog went a courtin (Cheshire) (37) Lyr Add: FROGGY WENT A-COURTIN' (from Rolf Harris) 14 Apr 04


The lyrics I'm looking for are by Rolf Harris. The verses I know are:

Froggy went a-courtin' and he did ride, mm-hmmm.
Froggy went a-courtin' and he did ride, mm-hmmm.
Froggy went a-courtin' and he did ride,
A sword and a pistol by his side, mm-hmmm. (Mm-hmmm.)

He went up to Missy Mouse's door, mm-hmmm.
He went up to Missy Mouse's door, mm-hmmm.
He went up to Missy Mouse's door
Where he had been many times before, mm-hmmm. (Mm-hmmm.)

Missy Mouse, are you within? Mm-hmmm.
Missy Mouse, are you within? Mm-hmmm.
Missy Mouse, are you within?
"Yes, kind sir, I sit and I spin." (Giggle)

He took Missy Mouse upon his knee, mm-hmmm.
He took Missy Mouse upon his knee, mm-hmmm.
He took Missy Mouse upon his knee,
Said, "Missy Mouse, will you marry me?" Uh oh. (Uh oh?)

Without my uncle rat's consent, uh oh,
Without my uncle rat's consent, uh oh,
Without my uncle rat's consent,
I wouldn't marry the president, mm-mmmm. (Mm-mmmm.)

Uncle rat laughed and shook his fat sides, ho ho ho.
Uncle rat laughed and shook his fat sides, ho ho ho.
Uncle rat laughed and shook his fat sides
To think his niece would be a bride, ho ho ho ho ho. (Ho ho ho ho ho.)

What will the wedding breakfast be? Mm-hmmm.
What will the wedding breakfast be? Mm-hmmm.
What will the wedding breakfast be?
Why, two chipped beans and a black-eyed pea, mm-hmmm. (Mm-hmmm.)

Where will the wedding breakfast be? Mm-hmmm.
Where will the wedding breakfast be? Mm-hmmm.
Where will the wedding breakfast be?
Way down yonder in a hollow tree, helloooooo. (Helloooooo.)

The owls did hoot and the birds they sang, mm-hmmm.
The owls did hoot and the birds they sang, mm-hmmm.
The owls did hoot and the birds they sang.
Through the woods the music rang. (Can't remember if its a "mm hmmm" here. Don't think it is.)

Something something something something something
Something something something something something
Something about a bumble bee
Danced a jig with the three-legged flea, mm-hmmm. (Mm-hmmm.)

They all went sailing across the lake, mm-hmmm.
They all went sailing across the lake, mm-hmmm.
They all went sailing across the lake
And got gobbled up by a big black snake, mm yum-yum-yum-yum-yum-yum-yum-yum. (Key change) yum-yum-yum-yum-yum-yum-yum.

There's bread and cheese upon the shelf, mm-hmmm.
There's bread and cheese upon the shelf, mm-hmmm.
There's bread and cheese upon the shelf.
If you want anymore you can see to yourself!

If anyone can help me with the flea verse, post it. I will know it when I see it. I'm also unsure whether verses 7 and 8 are the right way round either. Thank you!
