DT Lyrics:

Subject: Origins: Ten/Five Little Frogs
From: Joe Offer

So, I continue on my quest to reasearch all the songs in the Rise Up Singing Songbook - and to make some sense of them.

Here are the lyrics from the Digital Tradition:


Four green and speckled frogs sat on speckled log
Eating some most delicious bugs (yum yum!)
One jumped into the pool where it was nice and cool
Then there were 3 green speckled frogs

2,1, no green speckled frogs

Here's the Raffi recording:

OK, so the melody sounds like "My Gal's Corker," but not quite. Name that tune.

Hi everyone,
I am also curious about the origins of this song. I’ve known it since I was a kid, from the Raffi recording. Does anyone know the earliest date for it?
