"A Frog Went A Walking" is a song all about a frog, who wanted to marry a mouse and what happened at the wedding.

The song had first appeared on the Wake Up Jeff! album as a track. Then the song was filmed in 1999 with puppets to be put on the Dorothy the Dinosaur and Friends Video

But the first live-action version of this song was in 2007, Getting Strong! In this version, Murray plays the frog, Dorothy plays Mrs. Mousey, Anthony plays Mr. Pig, and Jeff plays the cook.

A froggy went a walking on a summer's day
Uh-huh

Uh-huh
A froggy went a walking on a summer's day
To meet Miss Mousey on the way
Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

He walked right up to Miss Mousey's door
Uh-huh
Can I come in?
He walked right up to Miss Mousey's door
Uh-huh
Let me in
He walked right up to Miss Mousey's door
Where he had often been before
Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

He said Miss Mousey, "Are you within?"
Uh-huh
Why, yes I am

Uh-huh
Yes, I'm here
He said Miss Mousey, "Are you within?"
Why, yes
She said
Where have you been?
Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

He said Ms. Mousey, "Will you marry me?"
Uh-huh
I don't know about that, Mr. Frog.
He said Ms. Mousey, "Will you marry me?"
Uh-huh
Mmm, let me think about it
He said Miss Mousey, "Will you marry me?"
And together we can live in an apple tree
Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

Now the first to the wedding was Mr. Pig
Uh-huh
(Oink, Oink)
The first to the wedding was Mr. Pig
Uh-huh

He played bagpipes while they danced a jig
Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

Take it away, Mr. Pig

Mr. Pig (playing bagpipes)

Well, the second to the wedding was Mr. Fox
Uh-huh
The second to the wedding was Mr. Fox

Well, the next to the wedding was Mr. Fly
Uh-huh

The next to the wedding was Mr. Fly
Uh-huh

The next to the wedding was Mr. Fly
He got stuck in an apple pie
Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

Well, what do you think they had for supper?
Uh-huh

Froggy and Mousey lived happily
Together in an apple tree
