Lyrics to Five Little Speckled Frogs:

Five little speckled frogs

Sat on a great big log

Eating the most delicious bugs (flies or grubs)…Yum, Yum!

One jumped into the pool

Where it was nice and cool

Then there were four speckled frogs

Glub, glub.

 

Four little speckled frogs

Sat on a great big log

Eating the most delicious bugs (flies or grubs)…Yum, Yum!

One jumped into the pool

Where it was nice and cool

Then there were three speckled frogs

Glub, glub.

 

Three little speckled frogs

Sat on a great big log

Eating the most delicious bugs (flies or grubs)…Yum, Yum!

One jumped into the pool

Where it was nice and cool

Then there were two speckled frogs

Glub, glub.

 

Two little speckled frogs

Sat on a great big log

Eating the most delicious bugs (flies or grubs)…Yum, Yum!

One jumped into the pool

Where it was nice and cool

Then there was one speckled frog

Glub, glub.

 

One little speckled frog

Sat on a great big log

Eating the most delicious bugs…Yum, Yum!

One jumped into the pool

Where it was nice and cool

Now there are no speckled frogs

Glub, glub.
