Thread Name: Lyr Req: Froggy Went A-Courtin'
Subject: RE: Froggy went a-courtin'
I think my favourite version was in a 'Tom & Jerry' Cartoon when Jerry Mouse's country cousin visits with his guitar and sings a 'stuttering' rendition...........

"Froggie went a-courtin' & he did ride
With a sword and a p-p-p-p-p.......revolver by his side"

"he rode up to Missy Mouse's door,
He knocked and knocked 'til his hand got s-s-s-s...painful"

Whenever he broke a guitar string he just yanked out one of Tom's whiskers, tuned it up and carried on

Still makes my kids laugh 20 years on
