Subject: Lyr Add: THE FROG'S WEDDING (from Dick Hogan)
Arrgh! the html went bad. Here it is, a version from Dick Hogan at http://mp3ireland.com/dickhogan/lyrics/The%20Frogs%20Wedding%20lyrics.html:


Now there was a frog lived in a well
With a ring-dum bull-a-dum-a-coy-me
And a merry mouse lived in a mill
With a ring-dum bull-a-dum-a-coy-me,

Chorus

Coy-me nero kill-to-car-o
Coy-me nero coy-me
Plim-strin slammer-diddle,
laddle-bull-a-ring-ting
A-ling-dum bull-a-dum-a-coy-me.

Now this merry frog he caught a snail
With a ring-dum bull-a-dum-a-coy-me
This merry frog he caught a snail
And rode between his horns and tails
With a ring-dum bull-a-dum-a-coy-me.

Chorus

Lady mouse, a will you me
Kitty alone, kitty alone
Lady, mouse, a will you marry me
Kitty alone, and I am
Lady mouse, a will you marry me
Ask my uncle rat she said
To my cax-my-carey, duck-in-i-dill,
Kitty alone, and I am.

Uncle rat, will you marry Lady Mouse?
Kitty alone kitty alone
Uncle rat, will you marry Lady Mouse?
Kitty alone, and I am
Uncle rat, will you marry Lady Mouse?
Yes, kind sir, and half my house
To my cax-my-carey, duck-in-i-dill
Kitty alone, and I am.

Lady Mouse, where will the wedding be?
Kitty alone, kitty alone
Lady Mouse, where will the wedding be?
Kitty alone, and I am
Lady Mouse where will the wedding be?
Up in the top of a hollow tree
To my cax-my-carey, duck-in-i-dill
Kitty alone, and I am.

Then the first to come was a great big bear,m-hm
The first to come was a great big bear,
And he filled up the ole armchair, m-hm.
The second to come was a great big snake
And he ate up al the wedding cake, m-hm

Oh wasn`t that a catastrophe, m-hm
Oh wasn`t that a catastrpohe
To happen in the ole oak tree, m-hm.

Then whilst at dinner they all sat
Heigh ho, heigh ho
Then whilst at dinner they all sat
In came the kitten and the cat
With a rowley powely,
gammon and spinach
Heigh ho, said Anthony Rowely.

Well says he; Mister rat, will you give us a song?
Heigh ho, heigh ho
Says he, Mister rat will you give us a song?
And I hope you won`t detain us long
With a rowely powely, gammon and spinach
Heigh ho: said Anthony Rowely.

Then the cat she collared the blooming great rat
Heigh ho, heigh ho
The cat she collared the blooming great rat
And the kitten she collared the poor little mouse
With a rowley powely, gammon and spinach
Heigh ho, said Anthony Rowely


Then this little frog went down the hill
Witha ring-dum bull-a-dum-a-coy-me
This merry frog went down the hill
Witha ring-dum bull-a-dum-a-coy-me
Coy-me nero-to-care-o
Coy-me nero coy-me
Plim-strin slammer-diddle, laddle-bull-
a-ring-thing
A-ling-dum bull-a-dum-a-coy-me

And there he met this little white duck
Witha ring-dum bull-a-dum-a-coy-me
And there he met this little white duck
Who swallowed him up with a quack,
quack, quack!
And a ring-dum bull-a-dum-a-coy-me
Coy-me nero kill-to-care-o
Coy-me nero coy-me
Plim-strin slammer-diddle, laddle-bull-a-
ring-thing
A-ling-dum bull-a-dum-a-coy-me.
