about

learned this song from my dad. These are the lyrics he used to sing to me as a kid. It was always a favorite song.

lyrics

Frogg went a-courtin' and he did go, uh-huh
Frogg went a-courtin' and he did go, uh-huh
Frogg went a-courtin' and he did go
To the Coconut Grove for a midnight show,
Uh-huh un-huh un-huh

Froggie sauntered down to Mollie Mouse's side, woo-woo
Froggie sauntered down to Mollie Mouse's side, woo-woo
Froggie sauntered down to Mollie Mouse's side
Said, “Hey there, Mollie would you be my bride?”
Woo-woo woo-woo woo-woo

Not without my Uncle Rat's consent, nuh-uh
Not without my Uncle Rat's consent, nuh-uh
Not without my Uncle Rat's consent
I would not marry the President,
Nuh-uh nuh-uh nuh-uh

She said “That's it, Clyde, better hit the road, farewell.
That's it, Clyde, better hit the road, goodbye.
That's it, Clyde, better hit the road
You ain't no frog you're a horny toad,
Farewell, goodbye, adios
Farewell, goodbye, adios”
