There Was A Frog

Lyrics

THERE was a frog lived in a well,
Kitty alone, Kitty alone;
There was a frog lived in a well,
Kitty alone and I.

The frog he would a-wooing ride;
Kitty alone, Kitty alone;
The frog he would a-wooing ride.
Cock me cary, Kitty alone.

He rode till he came to My Lady Mouse Hall,
Kitty alone, Kitty alone;
He rode till he came to My Lady Mouse Hall,
And there he did both knock and call.
Cock me cary, Kitty alone.

Quoth he, "Miss Mouse, I'm come to thee,"
Kitty alone, Kitty alone;
Quoth he, "Miss Mouse, I'm come to thee
To see if thou canst fancy me,
Cock me cary, Kitty alone.

Quoth she, "Answer I'll give you none,"
Kitty alone, Kitty alone;
Quoth she, Answer I'll give you none
Until my Uncle Rat comes home".
Cock me cary, Kitty alone.

And when her Uncle Rat came home,
Kitty alone, Kitty alone;
And when her Uncle Rat came home:
"Who's been here since I've been gone?"
Cock me cary, Kitty alone.

"Sir, There's been a worthy gentleman,"
Kitty alone, Kitty alone;
"Sir There's been a worthy gentleman
That's been here since you've been gone".
Cock me cary, Kitty alone.

The frog he came whistling through the brook,
Kitty alone, Kitty alone;
The frog he came whistling through the brook,
And there he met with a dainty duck.
Cock me cary, Kitty alone.

This duck she swallowed him up with a cluck,
Kitty alone, Kitty alone;
This duck she swallowed him up with a cluck,
So There's an end of my history book.
Kitty alone and I.

Learned this at McKinley Elementary school, South Bend, Indiana kindergarten. Lyrics exactly the same up to the "rum". The version I learned was "me rum stry. Pommadiddle. Nip sag cat sag, periwiggle jig sag, sing song kitchie kitchie kymeo." Of course, that was the way the words sounded to a kindergartner, but couldn't make them into the words in the first comment. The sag could have been sack, and the periwiggle could have been periwinkle, but sure about how it was sung then.
