DigiTrad: THE BULL FROG

THE BULL FROG

There was a bull frog living in the spring
Sing song Polly won't you ky-me-o;
He had such a cold that he could not sing
Sing song Polly won't you ky-me-o;

cho: Keemo, kymo darowah
Mahee, mahi, maho
Nit cap ko bomadiddle nit cap set back
Sing song Polly won't you ky-me-o;

Oh, I took him out and laid him on the ground
The bull frog winked and looked all around

He rode away to get him a bride
With a sword and a pistol by his side.

But the sun shone bright for there was no rain
So the bull frog jumped in the pond again.
