Did You Ever See A Frog?
Did you ever see a frog, a frog, a frog
Did you ever see a frog that hops so high?
Hops this way and that way, and this way and that way
Did you ever see a frog that hops so high?
That hops so fast ~ backwards ~ on one foot

Mr. Bullfrog
Mr. Bullfrog                 (make a fist)
Sitting on a rock           (put fist on flat palm)
Jumps in the water        (jump fist up)
With a big Kerplop!     (one loud CLAP)

Down By the Banks of the Hanky Panky
Down by the banks of the Hanky Panky,
Where the bull frogs jump from bank to banky,
With a flip, flop, flippity-flop,
Leap off a lily pad and go KERPLOP!

Turtle Puppet / fingerplay
This is my turtle, he lives in a shell
He likes his home very well
He puts his head out when he wants to eat
And pulls it back when it's time to sleep

Five Little Froggies Puppet Script
Five little froggies loved to swim and play
Along came a ________ and chased one frog away!
(repeat with other puppets, until no frogs are left)

Five Little Froggies Sitting In A Well
Five little froggies sitting on a well
One looked up, and down he fell.
Froggies jumped high,
Froggies jumped low.
Repeat until no froggies are left…


Jump Jump Went The Little Green Frogs
Jump jump went the little green frogs one day
Jump, jump went the little green frogs
Jump jump went the little green frogs one day
And their eyes went blink, blink, blink
And their tongues went blup, blup, blup...

Froggie Went A-Hopping
(Tune: Froggie Went A-Courting)

Froggie went hopping and he did hop, Mmm-hmm
Froggie went hopping and he did hop, Mmm-hmm
Froggie went hopping and he did hop,
He flipped right over and landed on his top,
Mmm-hmm - Mmm-hmm - Mmm-hmm

Froggie went jumping and he did leap, Mmm-hmm
Froggie went jumping and he did leap, Mmm-hmm
Froggie went jumping and he did leap,
He got so tired, he fell asleep,
Mmm-hmm, Mmm-hmm, Mmm-hmm

Froggie stuck out his tongue and caught a bug, Mmm-hmm
Froggie stuck out his tongue and caught a bug, Mmm-hmm
Froggie stuck out his tongue and caught a bug,
The bug got away and hid under the rug,
Mmm-hmm, Mmm-hmm, Mmm-hmm

Froggie kissed the trees and the bumblebees, Mmm-hmm
Froggie kissed the trees and the bumblebees, Mmm-hmm
Froggie kissed the trees and the bumblebees,
And then he missed and kissed his knees,
Mmm-hmm, Mmm-hmm, Mmm-hmm

Froggie hopped home and sat on his log, Mmm-hmm
Froggie hopped home and sat on his log, Mmm-hmm
Froggie hopped home and sat on his log,
It feels to good to be a frog,
Mmm-hmm, Mmm-hmm, Mmm-hmm


There Once Was a Little Green Frog
There once was a little green frog, frog, frog,
Who sat in the woods on a log, log, log.
A screech owl sitting in a tree, tree, tree,
Came after the frog with a scree, scree, scree.
When the frog heard the owl in a flash, flash, flash,
He jumped in the pond with a splash, splash, splash!
