The text for this book is as follows:

A frog, he would a wooing go Whether his mother would let him or no.

So off he marched with his nice new hat, And on the way he met a rat.

When they came to the door of the mouse's hall, They gave a loud knock, and they gave a loud call.

"Pray, Mrs. Mouse, are you within?" "Oh yes, Mr. Rat; I am learning to spin."

"Pray, Mrs. Mouse, will you give us some beer? For Froggy and I are fond of good cheer."

But as they were all a merry-making The cat and her kittens came tumbling in.

The cat, she seized the rat by the crown, The kittens, they pulled the little mouse down.

This put poor Frog in a terrible fright, So he took up his hat and he wished them good-night.

As Froggy was crossing him over a brook, A lily white duck came and gobbled him up.

So there was an end of one, two, and three, The Rat, the Mouse, and the little Froggee.
