(Mrs. Vaughan: “I have another song about a frog that I’d like to sing. It’s real interesting.”)

Twenty froggies went to school,
Down beside a little pool.
Twenty little coats of green,
Twenty dressed all white and clean.

Chorus: “We must be in time,” said they,
“First we study, then we play.
That is how we keep the rule
When we froggies go to school.”

Master Bullfrog, grave and stern,
Calls the classes in their turn.
Taught them 1-2-3-4-5,
How to leap and how to dive.
