Lyrics

*A frog went walking on a summer's day.
A hum, a hum.
A frog went walking on a summer's day.
He met Miss Mousey on the way.
A-hum, a-hum, a-hum, a-hum, a-hum.

He said, Miss Mousey will you marry me?
A hum, a hum.
He said, Miss Mousey will you marry me?
We'll live together in an apple tree
A-hum, a-hum, a-hum, a-hum, a-hum.

And what do you think they had for supper?
A hum, a hum.
And what do you think they had for supper?
A fried mosquito and bread and butter!
A-hum, a-hum, a-hum, a-hum, a-hum.

*Repeat
