Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics, John McCutcheon

Check out the index.

Family Garden album at
John McCutcheon's, "Here's to Cheshire"
The Lyrics:
That is the end of him and her
(Ding, dong, dell go the wedding bells!)
For there won't be no tadpoles covered with fur
(Ding, dong, dell go the wedding bells!)
This is a very pleasant-sounding variation of the "Frog Went a-Courtin'" ballad. While I don't remember how the original ends, I just noticed that in the last verse, John lays down the cruel truth that Froggie and Ms. Mouse won't be able to have kids.
