Play Song
There was a frog lived in a well,
Whipsee diddledee dandy dee,
There was a mouse lived in a mill,
Whipsee diddledee dandy dee.
This frog he would a-wooing ride,
With sword and buckler by his side.
With a harum scarum diddle dum darum,
Whipsee diddledee dandy dee.

He rode till he came to Mouse's Hall,
Whipsee diddledee dandy dee,
Where he most tenderly did call,
Whipsee diddledee dandy dee.
"Oh! Mistress Mouse, are you at home?
And if you are, oh pray, come down."
With a harum scarum diddle dum darum,
Whipsee diddledee dandy dee.

"My Uncle Rat is not at home;
Whipsee diddledee dandy dee,
I dare not for my life come down."
Whipsee diddledee dandy dee.
Then Uncle Rat he soon comes home,
"And who's been here since I've been gone?"
With a harum scarum diddle dum darum,
Whipsee diddledee dandy dee.

"Here's a fine young gentleman,
Whipsee diddledee dandy dee,
Who swears he'll have me if he can."
Whipsee diddledee dandy dee.
Then Uncle Rat gave his consent,
And made a handsome settlement.
With a harum scarum diddle dum darum,
Whipsee diddledee dandy dee.

Four partridge pies with season made,
Whipsee diddledee dandy dee,
Two potted larks and marmalade,
Whipsee diddledee dandy dee.
Four woodcocks and a venison pie,
I would that at that feast were I!
With a harum scarum diddle dum darum,
Whipsee diddledee dandy dee.
