Reel 358, Item 3
Froggie Went a-Courtin'
Frog went a-courtin', he did ride,
Rock bottom rinctum kimo Took Miss Mousie by his side,
Rock bottom rinctum kimo,
Kimo karo, captain karo,

Where will the wedding supper be?
Waydown yonder in a hollow tree.
Full refrain, and with all subsequent stanzas.
What will the weddin' supper be?
Two green beans and a black-eyed pea.
First came in was bumblebee,
He struck his fiddle across his knee.
Next came in was a hoppin' flea,
And danced a jig beside of me.
Next came in was a big black snake,
Sweared he'd serve the weddin' cake.
Next came in was Mr. Tick,
He eat so much it made him sick.
Next came in was Dr. Fly,
He swore, by God, that tick would die.
