A frog-gy ballad

 

 

The male frog sings

in the moon lit air,

calling out to his mistress frog

over there.

 

And he croaks and croaks

his loud and tuneful notes,

but be sure it is not with the aim

of clearing his throat.

 

Itís all with the goal of attracting

a mistress frog-gy lass,

to entice her out

of the long long grass.

 

And she,

with her long and slender legs

will eventually come and lay

her frothy white eggs.

 

And be sure there will be more croaks

before too long,

in the long long grass

by the white Lilly pond.
