Learning! Singing Mice Are Real

You know how in Disney movies mice sing pretty songs to pretty girls?  Well, in real life, male mice sing pretty songs to lady mice that they think are pretty, in an effort to woo them.  When they smell the presence of a girl, these little mousey Sinatras stop the high-pitched squeaks we know and loathe and switch to a song that is softer, and ultrasonic, so we can't hear it.

What song do you imagine the mice use to woo one another?  Perhaps "My Mousey Lies Over the Ocean" or "My Cheesecake Brings All the Girls to the Yard" or "The Way You Squeak Tonight"?
