Froggie Grows Up

From Ranger Rick Naturescope, Wading Into Wetlands
(Sing to the tune of Froggie Went A-Courtin’ )

Froggie was a-floatin’ in a big ol’ pond, uh-huh
Froggie was a-floatin’ in a big ol’ pond, uh-huh
He was one black spot in a jelly glob;
One small egg in a great big blob,
uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh.

Soon Froggie was a-swimmin’ on his own, uh-huh
Soon Froggie was a-swimmin’ on his own, uh-huh
His fast moving tail helped him get around
And he munched on tiny plants he found,
uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh.

And froggie was a-changin’ day by day, uh-huh
And froggie was a-changin’ day by day, uh-huh
First he got back legs and then front ones too
And he lost his tail and his lungs grew,
uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh.

Now froggie was a-hoppin’ on the land, uh-huh
Now froggie was a-hoppin’ on the land, uh-huh
His long sticky tongue helps him catch prey
As he feeds on bugs and worms all day,
uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh.
