Book's description:

Excerpt A FROG HE WOULDA-WOOING GO             A Frog he would a-wooing go,            Heigho, says Rowley!Whether his Mother would let him or no.        With a rowley-powley, gammon and spinach,            Heigho, says Anthony Rowley!   So off he set with his opera-hat,            Heigho, says Rowley!And on his way he met with a Rat.        With a rowley-powley, gammon and spinach,            Heigho, says Anthony Rowley!   "Pray, MR. RAT, will you go with me,"            Heigho, says Rowley!"Pretty MISS MOUSEY for to see?"        With a rowley-powley, gammon and spinach,            Heigho, says Anthony Rowley!             Now they soon arrived at Mousey's Hall,            Heigho, says Rowley!And gave a loud knock, and gave a loud call.        With a rowley-powley, gammon and spinach,            Heigho, says Anthony Rowley!   "Pray, Miss MOUSEY, are you within?"            Heigho, says Rowley!"Oh, yes, kind Sirs, I'm sitting to spin."        With a rowley-powley, gammon and spinach,            Heigho, says Anthony Rowley!               "Pray, Miss MOUSE, will you give us some beer?"            Heigho, says Rowley!"For Froggy and I are fond of good cheer."           With a rowley-powley, gammon and spinach,               Heigho says, Anthony Rowley!   "Pray, Mr. FROG, will you give us a song?            Heigho, says Rowley!"But let it be something that's not very long."        With a rowley-powley, gammon and spinach,            Heigho, says Anthony Rowley!             "Indeed, Miss MOUSE," replied Mr FROG,            Heigho, says Rowley!"A cold has made me as hoarse as a Hog."        With a rowley-powley, gammon and spinach,            Heigho, says Anthony Rowley!   "Since you have caught cold," Miss MOUSEY said.            Heigho, says Rowley!"I'll sing you a song that I have just made."        With a rowley-powley, gammon and spinach,            Heigho, says Anthony Rowley!   But while they were all thus a merry-making,            Heigho, says Rowley!A Cat and her Kittens came tumbling in.        With a rowley-powley, gammon and spinach,            Heigho, says Anthony Rowley!             The Cat she seized the Rat by the crown;            Heigho, says Rowley!The Kittens they pulled the little Mouse down.        With a rowley-powley, gammon and spinach,            Heigho, says Anthony Rowley!   This put Mr. FROG in a terrible fright;            Heigho, says Rowley!He took up his hat, and he wished them good night.        With a rowley-powley, gammon and spinach,            Heigho, says Anthony Rowley!   But as Froggy was crossing a silvery brook,            Heigho, says Rowley!A lily-white Duck came and gobbled him up.        With a rowley-powley, gammon and spinach,            Heigho, says Anthony Rowley...!
