FROG KISSIN'
As recorded by Chet Atkins


1. Do you remember in the fairy tale how the wicked witch's spell changed the handsome prince to a toad,
Through the power of a potion she handed him a notion, He was lower than the dirt in the road,
And though she left him green and warted, Her evil plan was thwarted when the chance to happen by a young miss,
Who in spite of his complexion offered her affection and broke the wicked curse with her kiss.

CHORUS:
Well, if you've never been a frog kissin', then you don't know what you've been missin'
There's a world of opportunity under each and every log,
If you've never been a charm breaker and if you've never been a handsome prince maker,
Just slow down, turn around, bend down and kiss you a frog.

2. Once upon a time ago I was down and feeling low, like a lonely frog in a pond,
Life was just a joke and I was very near a croakin' I was zapped by life's wicked wand,
Then in the depths of my depression, there came a true expression of a love from a lady so sweet,
She gave me warm fuzzy feelings, feelings that were healin' and knocked me off my little webbed feet.

(Chorus)

There's a happy ever after land deep in the heart of man where a prince or princess abide,
But all the good are glimpses of the handsome prince or princess 'cause their covered by a green warty hide,
And though they're full of life's potential, they're lackin' one essential to enable them to shine like a star,
And that's to have some guy or missus smother them with kisses and love 'em while they're just like they are,

And that's the secret of frog kissin', and you can do it too if you'll just listen.
Just slow down, turn around, bend down and kiss you a frog! Ribet! Ribet!^^^
