Détail d'une chanson


Froggie Went A Courtin'

We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions - 27/04/2006

Traditionnel

The most ancient tune here;
the earliest version we've tracked is from Scotland in 1549.

Mr. Frog went a-courtin' and he did ride, uh-huh
Froggie went a-courtin' and he did ride, uh-huh
Froggie went to court and he did ride
A sword and pistol by his side, uh- huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

He went down to Miss Mousie's door, uh-huh
He went down to Miss Mousie's door, uh-huh
He went down to Miss Mousie's door
Where he had often been before, uh huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

He took Miss Mouse upon his knee, uh-huh
Said Miss Mousie, would you marry me?" uh huh
"Without my Uncle Rat's consent
I wouldn't marry the President," uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

Well Uncle Rat he gave his consent, uh-huh
Hey Uncle Rat he gave his consent, uh-huh
Uncle Rat he gave his consent
And the weasel wrote the publishment, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

Well now where will the wedding supper be Uh-huh
Where will the wedding supper be Uh-huh
Well where will the wedding supper be?
Way down yonder in a hollow tree, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

Yeah the first come in was a flying moth, uh-huh
First come in was a flying moth, uh-huh
First come in was a flying moth
Who laid out the table cloth, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

The next come in was a junie bug, uh-huh
The next come in was a junie bug, uh-huh
Next come in was a junie bug
She brought the whiskey in the water jug, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

The next come in was a big black snake, uh-huh
Next come in was a big black snake, uh-huh
Next come in was a big black snake
He chased them all into the lake, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

A little piece of corn bread laying on the shelf, uh-huh
A little piece of corn bread laying on the shelf, uh-huh
A little piece of corn bread laying on the shelf
And you want them all, you can sing to self, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

Le morceau le plus ancien ici;
la premire version que nous avons suivi vient d'Ecosse en 1549.

M La Grenouille sen fut courtiser et il prit la route, uh-huh
M La Grenouille sen fut courtiser et il prit la route, uh-huh
M La Grenouille sen fut courtiser et il prit la route
Une pe, un pistolet de part et dautre, uh huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

Il descendit la porte de Mlle La Souris, uh-huh
Il descendit la porte de Mlle La Souris, uh-huh
Il descendit la porte de Mlle La Souris
O il stait rendu maintes fois avant, uh huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

Il prit Mlle La Souris sur son genou, uh-huh
Dit Mlle La Souris, voudriez vous mpouser? uh-huh
Sans le consentement de mon oncle Rat
Je npouserais mme pas le Gouverneur uh huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

Bien lOncle Rat donna son consentement, uh-huh
Eh lOncle Rat donna son consentement, uh-huh
LOncle Rat donna son consentement
Et le retors publia les bans uh huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

Bien maintenant o le souper de mariage se tiendra til Uh-huh
O le souper de mariage se tiendra til Uh-huh
Bien o le souper de mariage se tiendra til
Par en bas sis dans un arbre creux, uh huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

Ouais le premier entrer est une mite volante, uh-huh
Le premier entrer est une mite volante, uh-huh
Le premier entrer est une mite volante
Et elle dressa la nappe, uh huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

Le suivant entrer fut un hanneton, uh-huh
Le suivant entrer fut un hanneton, uh-huh
Le suivant entrer fut un hanneton
Il apporta le whisky dans le pichet eau, uh huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

Le suivant entrer fut un grand serpent noir, uh-huh
Le suivant entrer fut un grand serpent noir, uh-huh

Il les chassa tous dans le lac, uh huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

Un petit morceau de pain de mas pos sur ltagre, uh-huh
