“Five Little Speckled Frogs” Lyrics

FIVE little speckled frogs,
Sat on a speckled log,
Eating some most delicious bugs.
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 speckled log,
Eating some most delicious bugs.
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 speckled log,
Eating some most delicious bugs.
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 speckled log,
Eating some most delicious bugs.
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 speckled log,
Eating some most delicious bugs.
Yum yum!
He jumped into the pool,
Where it was nice and cool,
Then there were no speckled frogs.
Glub glub!
