dont know much about it other than dad sang it maybe 6 times in my life. He knew it all so he thought, I dont know. !st verse is about some animaal went rideing, ahuh, ahuh. This repeats twice more than the refrain, with sword and pistol at his side. 2nd. He rode up to Miss Mousies door ahuh, ahuh. This repeats twice more than the refrain ???? he hit the door, ahuh, ahih. #3. He said Miss Mousie wouldja marry me, ahuh, ahuh This is sung twice more and then the refrain, underneith the cherry tree, ahuh, ahuh. #4 Miss Mousie said before I answer that, ahuh, ahuh. This repeats twice and then the refrain, Ill have to ask my uncle rat, ahuh, ahuh. #5 Her uncle rat gave his consent ahuh, ahuh. This repeats twice more, and then the refrain. the weasel wrote the publishment, ahuh, ahuh. Think this song can be found? My dad would sure get a kick outa hearing it again. By the way, I couldnt open the reelaudio to the dother song I asked fore, so am hoping my X can getr it.
