Nick Cave – Mister Frog Went A-Courting lyrics

Mister frog went a-courting and he did ride
Uh-hmm, Uh-hmm
Mister frog went a-courting and he did ride
A sword and pistol by his side
Uh-hmm, Uh-hmm.


He went down to Missy Mousie's door
Where he had often been before.


He said, "Missy Mouse, are you within?"
"Yes kind sir, I sit and spin."


He took Missy Mouse upon his knee
And said "Missy Mouse, will you marry me?"


"Without my Uncle Rat's consent"
"I wouldn't marry the pres-I-dent."


Uncle Rat laughed and shook his fat sides,
To think his niece would be a bride.


When Uncle Rat gave his consent
The weasel wrote the publishment.


Where will the wedding supper be?
Way down yonder in a holler tree.


What will the wedding supper be?
Two green beans and a black-eyed pea.


The first guest in was a bumblebee
He danced a jig with a crook-backed flea.


The owl did hoot, the birds they sang
And through the woods the music rang.


They all went sailing 'cross the lake
And got swallered up by a big black snake


There's bread and cheese upon the shelf
If you want any more you can sing it yourself.
