A Frog he would a wooing go,
Heigh-ho, says Roley,
A Frog he would a-wooing go,
Whether this mother would let him or no,
With a Roley, Poley, Gammon and Spinach,
Heigh-ho says Anthony Roley.

He saddled and bridled a great black snail,
Heigh-ho, says Roley,
He saddled and bridled a great black snail,
And rode between the horns and the tail,
With a Roley, Poley, Gammon and Spinach,
Heigh-ho says Anthony Roley.

So off he set with his opera hat,
Heigh-ho, says Roley,
So off he set with his opera hat,
And on the way he met with a rat,
With a Roley, Poley, Gammon and Spinach,
Heigh-ho says Anthony Roley.

They rode till they came to Mousey Hall,
Heigh-ho, says Roley,
They rode till they came to Mousey Hall,
And there they both did knock and call,
With a Roley, Poley, Gammon and Spinach,
Heigh-ho says Anthony Roley.

"Pray, Mrs. Mouse, are you within?"
Heigh-ho, says Roley,
"Pray, Mrs. Mouse, are you within?"
"Oh yes, sir, here I sit and spin."
With a Roley, Poley, Gammon and Spinach,
Heigh-ho says Anthony Roley.

Then Mrs. Mouse she did come down,
Heigh-ho, says Roley,
Then Mrs. Mouse she did come down,
All smartly dressed in a russet gown,
With a Roley, Poley, Gammon and Spinach,
Heigh-ho says Anthony Roley.

"Pray, Mrs. Mouse, can you give us some beer,"
Heigh-ho, says Roley,
"Pray, Mrs. Mouse, can you give us some beer,
That froggy and I may have good cheer?"
With a Roley, Poley, Gammon and Spinach,
Heigh-ho says Anthony Roley.

She had not been sitting long to spin,
Heigh-ho, says Roley,
She had not been sitting long to spin,
When the cat and the kittens came tumbling in,
With a Roley, Poley, Gammon and Spinach,
Heigh-ho says Anthony Roley.

The cat she seized Master Rat by the crown,
Heigh-ho, says Roley,
The cat she seized Master Rat by the crown,
The kitten she pulled Miss Mousey down,
With a Roley, Poley, Gammon and Spinach,
Heigh-ho says Anthony Roley.

This put Mr. Frog in a terrible fright,
Heigh-ho, says Roley,
This put Mr. Frog in a terrible fright,
He took up his hat and he wished them "Good night!"
With a Roley, Poley, Gammon and Spinach,
Heigh-ho says Anthony Roley.

And as he was passing over the brook,
Heigh-ho, says Roley,
And as he was passing over the brook,
A lily white duck came and gobbled him up,
With a Roley, Poley, Gammon and Spinach,
Heigh-ho says Anthony Roley.

So there's an end of one, two, and three,
Heigh-ho, says Roley,
So there's an end of one, two, and three,
The Rat, the Mouse, and little Froggy,
With a Roley, Poley, Gammon and Spinach,
Heigh-ho says Anthony Roley.
