Froggy Went A-Courtin'
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


Well a froggy went a-courtin'
He did ride
Well a froggy went a-courtin'
And he did ride
Well a froggy went a-courtin'
He did ride
He had a sword and a pistol by his side

Well he road up to missy mouse's door
Well he road up to missy mouse's door
Well he road up to missy mouse's door
And he'd been there many many times before

Well he said missy mouse are you within
Well he said missy mouse are you within
Well he said missy mouse are you within
She said yes kind sir I sit and I spin

Well he took missy mouse upon his knee
Well he took missy mouse upon his knee
Well he took missy mouse upon his knee
And said mousy won't you please marry me

Not without my uncle rat's consent
Not without my uncle rat's consent
Not without my uncle rat's consent
Well without my uncle rat's consent well I wouldn't marry the president

Well uncle rat laughed and he shook his fat sides
Well uncle rat laughed and he shook his fat sides
Well uncle rat laughed and he shook his fat sides
To think his little niece gonna be a bride

Well where will the wedding breakfast be
Well where will the wedding breakfast be
Well where will the wedding breakfast be
Well down yonder in a hollow tree

Well the next came in was a two legged flea
Well the next came in was a two legged flea
Well the next came in was a two legged flea
And he did a little dance with a bumblebee

Well they all went for a ride on the lake
Well they all went for a ride on the lake
Well they all went for a ride on the lake
Got swallowed up by a big black snake

Well the owls all hooted and the birds all sang
Well the owls all hooted and the birds all sang
Well the owls all hooted and the birds all sang
And through the woods the music rang

Well there's bread and there's cheese upon the shelf
Well there's bread and there's cheese upon the shelf
Well there's bread and there's cheese upon the shelf
If you wanna hear more your gonna sing it yourself

My grandfather sang this to me and now I am singing to my grandson. I am so glad I found this to play for him - I could never do it justice !

Thank you so much.

Thomas Battcock

This one of the purest voices I have ever heard.......I really wish they would release more of his music. . The choices on itunes is very limited; although there is an album of Christmas Carols there. Listening to Jimmy sing "O Holy Night" was a real treat and a very pleasent surprise.
