11 A Froggy He Would A-Wooing Go

Lyrics

A frog he would a-wooing go,
Hey ho! says Rowley,
A frog he would a-wooing go,
Whether his mother would let him or no.
With a rowley, powley, gammon, and spinach,
Hey ho! says Anthony Rowley.

So off he set with his opera hat,
Hey ho! says Rowley,
So off he set with his opera hat,
And on the road he met with a rat,
With a rowley, powley, gammon, and spinach,
Hey ho! says Anthony Rowley.

Pray, Mr. Rat will you go with me?
Hey ho! says Rowley,
Pray, Mr. Rat will you go with me,
Kind Mrs. Mousey for to see…
With a rowley, powley, gammon, and spinach,
Hey ho! says Anthony Rowley.

They came to the door of Mousey's hall,
Hey ho! says Rowley,
They gave a loud knock, and they gave a loud call.
With a rowley, powley, gammon, and spinach,
Hey ho! says Anthony Rowley.

Pray, Mrs. Mouse are you within?
Hey ho! says Rowley,
Oh yes, kind sirs, I'm sitting to spin.
With a rowley, powley, gammon, and spinach,
Hey ho! says Anthony Rowley.

Pray, Mr. Frog will you give us a song?
Hey ho! says Rowley,
Let it be something that's not very long.
With a rowley, powley, gammon, and spinach,
Hey ho! says Anthony Rowley.

Indeed, Mrs. Mouse, replied Mr. Frog,
Hey ho! says Rowley,
A cold has made me as hoarse as a dog.
With a rowley, powley, gammon, and spinach,
Hey ho! says Anthony Rowley.

Since you have a cold, Mr. Frog, Mousey said,
Hey ho! says Rowley,
I'll sing you a song that I've just made.
With a rowley, powley, gammon, and spinach,
Hey ho! says Anthony Rowley.

But while they were all a-merry-making
Hey ho! says Rowley,
A cat and her kittens came tumbling in.
With a rowley, powley, gammon, and spinach,
Hey ho! says Anthony Rowley.

The cat she seized the rat by the crown,
Hey ho! says Rowley,
The kittens they pulled the little mouse down.
With a rowley, powley, gammon, and spinach,
Hey ho! says Anthony Rowley.

This put Mr. Frog in a terrible fright,
Hey ho! says Rowley.
He took up his hat and he wished them goodnight.
With a rowley, powley, gammon, and spinach,
Hey ho! says Anthony Rowley.

But as the Froggy was crossing the brook,
Hey ho! says Rowley.
A lily white duck came and gobbled him up.
With a rowley, powley, gammon, and spinach,
Hey ho! says Anthony Rowley.

So that was the end of 1, 2, 3
Hey ho! says Rowley.
The rat, the mouse and Mr. Froggy
With a rowley, powley, gammon, and spinach,
Hey ho! says Anthony Rowley.
