Ribbit, Ribbit Green Frog


I came up with the following song when Connor was three, partly because I was tired of singing "Bah, Bah Black Sheep".  It became an instant favorite, and I've sung it to both boys nightly since then.  When Ryan was inconsolable on the emergency room bed, getting his eyebrow stitched back together, I sang him this song.  When he wouldn't sit still for the hair stylist, I sang it again.  Try it out!  You won't be disappointed in your child's reaction.

Ribbit, Ribbit Green Frog
(Sung to the tune of Bah, Bah Black Sheep)

Ribbit, ribbit green frog,
have you any flies? (*Slurp, Slurp*)
A dozen or two,
I tell you no lies.


They're crunch and they're good
and I eat 'em all the time.
You can have some,
you can have some of mine.


Ribbit, ribbit green frog,
have you any flies? (*Slurp, Slurp*)
A dozen or two,
I tell you no lies.
