A Frog A Wooing


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

So off he set with beaver hat
Ay ho! says Rowley, ho!
So off he set with beaver hat
Along the way he met Mister Rat
With a rowley poley, gammon and spinach,
Ay ho! says Anthony Rowley.

They soon arrived at Mousey Hall
Ay ho! says Rowley, ho!
They soon arrived at Mousey Hall
They gave a knock and gave a loud call
With a rowley poley, gammon and spinach,
Ay ho! says Anthony Rowley.

Oh pray, Mrs. Mouse, are you within?
Ay ho! says Rowley, ho!
Oh pray, Mrs. Mouse, are you within?
Oh yes, kind sirs, I am sitting to spin
With a rowley poley, gammon and spinach,
Ay ho! says Anthony Rowley.

Oh pray, Mister Frog, give us a song!
Ay ho! says Rowley, ho!
Oh pray, Mister Frog, give us a song!
And let it be sweet and not very long"
With a rowley poley, gammon and spinach,
Ay ho! says Anthony Rowley.

Excuse me, Pray! says Mister Frog
Ay ho! says Rowley, ho!
Excuse me, Pray! says Mister Frog
I've got a bad cold I caught in a bog
With a rowley poley, gammon and spinach,
Ay ho! says Anthony Rowley.

They were in glee, making a din
Ay ho! says Rowley, ho!
They were in glee, making a din
A cat and her kittens came tumbling in
With a rowley poley, gammon and spinach,
Ay ho! says Anthony Rowley.

The cat, she pulled the rat adown
Ay ho! says Rowley, ho!
The cat, she pulled the rat adown
Her kittens tore and scratched the Mousie's gown
With a rowley poley, gammon and spinach,
Ay ho! says Anthony Rowley.

Now Mister Frog he shivered with fright
Ay ho! says Rowley, ho!
Now Mister Frog he shivered with fright
Picked up his hat and bid him good-night
With a rowley poley, gammon and spinach,
Ay ho! says Anthony Rowley.

As stout Sir Frog, he crossed the brook
Ay ho! says Rowley, ho!
As stout Sir Frog, he crossed the brook
A lively duck came and gobbled him up
With a rowley poley, gammon and spinach,
Ay ho! says Anthony Rowley.

This is the end of one, two, three
Ay ho! says Rowley, ho!
This is the end of one, two, three
The rat, the mouse and little froggie
With a rowley poley, gammon and spinach,
Ay ho! says Anthony Rowley.
