Frogs and Toads

Five Little Speckled Frogs

Five little speckled frogs,
Sitting on a speckled log,
Eating the most delicious bugs,
Yum, yum.
One jumped into the pool,
Where it was nice and cool,
Then there were four little speckled frogs.

(Repeat , working your way down to one.)

One little speckled frog sitting,
Sitting on a speckled log,
Eating the most delicious bugs,
Yum, yum.
He jumped into the pool,
Where it was nice and cool,
Then there were no little speckled frogs.


Bloop Bloop

Bloop bloop went the little green frog one day,
Bloop bloop went the little green frog,
Bloop bloop went the little green frog one day,
And they all went bloop bloop blop.

But!
We all know frogs go,
Lahdeedahdeedah!
Lahdeedahdeedah!
We all know frogs go,
Lahdeedahdeedah!
They don't go bloop bloop blop.


Five Little Tadpoles

Five little tadpoles swimming near the shore.
The first one said, “Let’s swim some more.”
The second one said, “Let’s rest awhile.”
The third one said, “Swimming makes me smile.”
The fourth one said, “My legs are growing long.”
The fifth one said, “I’m getting very strong.”
Five little tadpoles will soon be frogs.
They’ll jump from the water and sit on logs.


The Polliwog

Oh, the Polliwog is woggling
In his pleasant native bog
With his beady eyes a-goggling
Through the underwater fog
And his busy tail a-joggling
And his eager head agog-
Just a happy little frogling
Who is bound to be a frog.

Arthur Gutterman


Polly-Wog

There once was a polly named Wog
Who wanted to change to a frog,
So he dropped off his tail
Grew legs without fail
And croaked all day on a log.


Five Frisky Frogs

Five little frisky frogs hopping on the shore.
(Hold up five fingers. hop.)
One hopped into the pond- SPLASH!
(Call “splash” loudly throw hands out and up.)
So then there were just four.
Four little frisky frogs climbing up a tree.
(Hold up four fingers. Climb.)
One fell into the grass - BOOM!
(Fall and call “boom” loudly.)
So then there were just three.
Three little frisky frogs bathing in the dew.
(Hold up 3 fingers. Wash face and body.)
One caught a sneezy cold - AHHCHOO!
(Cover nose and sneeze loudly.)
So then there were just two.
Two little frisky frogs sleeping in the sun.
(Hold up two fingers and sleep.)
One slept the day away - SNORE!
(Snore loudly.)
So then there was just one.
One little frisky frog sitting on a stone.
(Hold up 1 finger, lean chin on hand and look sad.)
Let’s call his four friends back - YOO - HOO!
(Cup hands around mouth.)
So he won’t be alone.
(Hold up five fingers and smile)


I Have a Little Frog

I have a little frog
His name is Tiny Tim,
I put him in the bathtub,
To see if he could swim,
He drank up all the water,
And gobbled up the soap!
And when he tried to talk
He had a BUBBLE in his throat!


Mary Had a Little Frog

(to the tune of "Mary had a Little Lamb")

Mary had a little frog,
Little, frog, little frog,
Mary had a little frog,
It’s skin was green as grass.
And everywhere that Mary went,
Mary went, Mary went,
Everywhere that Mary went,
The frog would jump and splash.


Little Froggy

(to the tune of "I’m a Little Teapot")

See the little froggy Swimming in the pool
The water’s great- It’s nice and cool
When he gets all cleaned up Out he’ll hop
Squeaky clean From bottom to top.
See the little froggy On the lily pad
Trying to catch flies She’s getting sad.
When she catches one, She’ll gobble it up
Back in the water She’ll go kerplop!


I am a Little Toad

I am a little toad,
Hopping down the road,
Just listen to my song,
I sleep all winter long,
When spring comes I peep out,
And then I jump about,
And now I catch a fly,
And now I wink my eye,
And now and then I hop,
And now and then I stop!
