Young Folk Froggie went a-courting
 
     
 

There was an old frog lived in a well
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells
A pretty little mouse lived in a mill
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells

Froggy went a courting and he did ride
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells
He said 'Missy Mouse you must decide'
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells

Chorus.... (insert every couple of verses or so)

Here's to Cheshire, Here's to Cheese
here's to the pears and the apple trees
here's to the lovely strawberries
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells

For I am rich and I am brave
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells
What better husband could you have
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells

I'll not take your word for that
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells
You'll have to satisfy Uncle Rat
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells

Rat said ""I'm very much afraid""
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells
""If you don't take Froggy then you'll die an old maid""
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells

So the Knot was tied secure and fast
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells
She's off her uncle's hands at last
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells

Open the oysters spill champagne
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells
Never will there be such a feast again
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells

Tune up the fiddle and let's have a square
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells
Top couple must be the happy pair
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells

As they were going it hot and strong
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells
the good gray cat come prowling along
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells

Into the window and out of the yard
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells
Didn't bring no invitation card
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells

Uncle Rat like a hero stood
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells
Puss wet her whiskers in his blood
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells

Miss Mouse she made a dive for a crack
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells
Puss made a pounce and broke her back
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells

Where was the valiant frog this while
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells
Just about broke the four minute mile
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells

Came to a brook and he didn't stoptop look
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells
The old drake knabbed him in his fluke
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells

That was the end of him and of her
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells
won't be no tadpoles covered in fur
Ding! Dang! Dong! go the Wedding Bells
