THE BALLAD OF FRED THE FROG

There once was a frog
whose name was Fred,
he hopped around
and bounced on his bed.
 
He hopped to the pond
and went for a swim,
he called for his friends
and they all joined in.
 
He hopped to the shops
to help out his mum
and she would reward him
with a nice currant bun.
 
He hopped and jumped
all over the place
with a laugh and a giggle
and a smile on his face.
 
At night-time he loved
to sit and knit,
he was making a scarf
that would snugly fit,
 
around his neck
when days were cool,
it gets chilly cold
in that murky old pool.
 
A thick woolly hat
and some nice warm mitts,
would make him happily
shout "RIBBIT!"
