Whether his mother would let him or no.
Off he set with his opera hat;
On the road he met with a rat.
lie asked Mr. Rat to make a call,
And soon they arrived at Mousey's hall.
"Pray, Mrs. Mouse, are you with ?"
" I am, kind sirs, and sitting to spin."
"Pray, Mrs. Mouse, now give us some beer,
That Froggy and I may have good cheer."
"Pray, Mr. Frog, will you give us a song?
Let the subject be something that 's not very long."
"Indeed, Mrs. Mouse," replied the frog,
"I caught a bad cold, last night, in the fog."
' Since you have caught cold, Mr. Frog," Mousey said,
" I'll sing you a song that I have just made."
As they were in glee, and making a din,
A cat and her kittens came tumbling in,
The cat, she seized the rat by the crown,
The kittens they pulled the little mouse down.
This put Mr. Frog in a terrible fright;
lie took up his hat, and he wished therm good-night.
As Frorggy was crossing it over :t brook,
A lily-white duck cam~L anid gobbled him up.
And here is the end of one, two, three, -
The rat, the mouse, and the little fir'ggy. 4
