Froggie Went A Courtin’


Froggie went a courtin’ and he did ride (Uh‐huh, uh‐huh)
Froggie went a courtin’ and he did ride (Uh‐huh, uh‐huh)
Froggie went a courtin’ and he did ride
A bunch of daisies by his side (Uh‐huh, Uh‐huh, Uh‐huh)


He rode down to Miss Mousie’s door (Uh‐huh, uh‐huh)
He rode down to Miss Mousie’s door (Uh‐huh, uh‐huh)
He rode down to Miss Mousie’s door
To see if they’re both in accord (Uh‐huh, Uh‐huh, Uh‐huh)


He took Miss Mousie on his knee (Uh‐huh, uh‐huh)
He took Miss Mousie on his knee (Uh‐huh, uh‐huh)
He took Miss Mousie on his knee
Said, Miss Mousie, would you marry me? (Uh‐huh, Uh‐huh, Uh‐huh)


I’d like to travel to distant lands (Uh‐huh, uh‐huh)
I’d like to travel to distant lands (Uh‐huh, uh‐huh)
I’d like to travel to distant lands
And marriage isn’t in my plans (Uh‐uh, Uh‐uh, Uh‐uh)


I want to meet a polar bear (Uh‐huh, uh‐huh)
I want to meet a polar bear (Uh‐huh, uh‐huh)
I want to meet a polar bear
And get to hang out in his lair (Uh‐huh, Uh‐huh, Uh‐huh)


Swim the seas with a humpback whale (Uh‐huh, uh‐huh)
Swim the seas with a humpback whale (Uh‐huh, uh‐huh)
Swim the seas with a humpback whale
And ride along on his giant tail (Uh‐huh, Uh‐huh, Uh‐huh)


Miss Mousie, I don’t know what to say (Uh‐uh, uh‐uh)
Miss Mousie, I don’t know what to say (Uh‐uh, uh‐uh)
Miss Mousie, I don’t know what to say
But could I ask again someday? (Uh‐huh, Uh‐uh, Uh‐uh)


She shook her head and slapped her knee (Uh‐uh, uh‐uh)
She shook her head and slapped her knee (Uh‐uh, uh‐uh)
She shook her head and slapped her knee
I won’t be Mrs. Froggie (Uh‐uh, Uh‐uh, Uh‐uh)


So that’s the end of him and her (Uh‐huh, uh‐huh)
So that’s the end of him and her (Uh‐huh, uh‐huh)
So that’s the end of him and her
There’ll be no tadpoles covered with fur (Uh‐huh, Uh‐huh, Uh‐huh)
