Thread Name: froggie went a courtin
Subject: RE: froggie went a courtin
Walt Kelly, in one of his Pogo books printed a version, plus he drew the swamp critters trying to perform it, with zaney results. His version included a chorus that included something about "Rowley, Prowley, Gammon and spinich; Hiho, says Anthony Rowley." The Clancy Brothers with Tommy Makem have a recorded version of a very similar song with somewhat the same chorus. I think theirs is called "Frog In A Well." It may be on a Christmas album of theirs.
