A traditional song. My brother Tony used to sing a version of this song to us, but this one came from Jeff Davis and Jeff Warner, on their stellar Two Little Boys recording. They note that the song probably dates back to the 1500’s and that the “mouse” may have been Queen Elizabeth I, and the “frog” a suitor from the Court of Henry, King of France. We’ve corrupted the title from “A Frog He . . . “ to “Froggy . . . “.
