Thread Name: froggie went a courtin
Subject: Lyr Add: HERE'S TO CHESHIRE
My sister had a different version which my kids liked, maybe because of the food references:

Frog went a-courtin' he did ride,
Ding, dang, dong went the wedding bells
Sword and buckler by his side,
Ding, Dang, Dong went the wedding bells

CHORUS: Here's to Cheshire. Here's to cheese
Here's to the pear and the apple trees
And here's to the love-e-ly stra-a-a-awberries
Ding, Dang, Dong went the wedding bells
etc.

The last verse (a signal that the singer was going to end it (if not end it all) was

There's bread and cheese upon the shelf
Ding, Dang, Dong went the wedding bells
If you want any more you can sing it for yourself
Ding, Dand, Dong went the wedding bells
Here's to Cheshire, etc.
