FROG he would a-wooing go,
Whether his mother would let him or
So off he set with his opera-hat, © 2
And on the road he met with a Rat.
‘« Pray, Mr. Rat, will you go with me,
Kind Mrs. Mousey for to see?”

They soon arrived at Mousey’s hall,
And gave a loud knock, and gave a loud call.

“Pray, Mrs. Mouse, are you within?”
“Yes, kind sirs, and sitting to spin.”

“Pray, Mrs. Mouse, now give us some beer,
For Froggy and I are fond of good cheer.”
