Songs
Five Green and Speckled Frogs
5 green and speckled frogs
Sat on a speckled log
Eating some most delicious bugs - yum, yum
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Now there are 4 green, speckled frogs - glub, glub
4 green and speckled frogs... etc
3 green and speckled frogs... etc
2 green and speckled frogs... etc
1 green and speckled frog
Sat on a speckled log
Eating some most delicious bugs - yum, yum
He jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Now there are no green, speckled frogs - glub, glub!
Little White Duck
There's a little white duck, sitting in the water
A little white duck, doing what he oughter
He took a bite of a lily pad
Flapped his wings and he said "I'm glad
I'm a little white duck sitting in the water
Quack, Quack, Quack."
There's a little green frog swimming in the water
A little green frog, doing what he oughter
He jumped right off of the lily pad
That the little duck bit and he said "I'm glad
I'm a little green frog swimming in the water
Glug, Glug, Glug."
There's a little black bug floating on the water
A little black bug doing what he oughter
He tickled the frog on the lily pad
That the little duck bit and he said, "I'm glad
I'm a little black bug floating in the water
Bzz, Bzzz, Bzzz."
There's a little red snake playing in the water
A little red snake doing what he oughter
He frightened the duck and the frog so bad
He ate up the bug and he said, "I'm glad
I'm a little red snake playing in the water
Hiss, Hisss, Hisss."
Now there's nobody left sitting in the water
Nobody left doing what they oughter
There's nothing left but the lily pad
The duck and the frog ran away, I'm sad
"Cause there's nobody left sitting in the water,
Boo! Hoo, Hoo...
