I thought surely this one would be in the Digitrad, but I looked and couldn't find it. I tried searching the Forum but couldn't get the page to load.

ZO, if anyone has chords and words to this song, I'd appreciate it. A friend has told me I need to do more happy songs, so ... what could be happier than a Big, Blue Frog -- and it even deals with prejudice, so I get to be socially active AND silly ...

Thanks, WW

Lyrics from PP&M site. No chords; somebody'll send 'em in a minute I'm sure.

I'M IN LOVE WITH A BIG BLUE FROG
Leslie Braunstein- Pepamar Music Corp.- ASCAP

I'm in love with a big blue frog,
A big blue frog loves me.
It's not as bad as it appears
He wears glasses and he's six foot three.

Well I'm not worried about our kids,
I know they'll turn out neat.
They'll be great lookin' 'cause they'll have my face,
great swimmers 'cause they'll have his feet!

Well I'm in love with a big blue frog,
A big blue frog loves me.
He's not as bad as he appears,
He's got rhythm and a PhD.

Well I know we can make things work
He's got good fam'ly sense.
His mother was a frog from Philadelphia
His daddy an enchanted prince.

The neighbors are against it and it's clear to me
And it's prob'ly clear to you
They think value on their property will go right down
If the family next door is blue.

Well I'm in love with a big blue frog
A big blue frog loves me
I've got it tattooed on my chest
It says P.H.R.O.G. (It's frog to me!)
P.H.R.O.G.

Wow... the chords were still on the original note card written at Girl Scout camp sometime about 30 years ago. Hope they make sense. Chords are infront of the change word.

I always thought it was an allusion to people who change the spelling of their names in a way they think makes them more "upper class"

Guest "Bleau":

If you look back at an earlier stanza, "His mother was a Phrog from Philadelphia, and his daddy's an enchanted prince," you'll get a hint. And then there's the PhD ...

It's a reference to social rank -- have you ever heard of the Main Line in Philadelphia?

It's a crack about how people who are bigoted about skin colour don't see anything else.

It's a fancied-up, affected way of spelling what is a perfectly clear, plain name. It's not good enough for these types to just be "frogs" (which is too common), no, they're "phrogs", m'dear. With a capital P at all times, no doubt.

Rather like those with something to prove socially, who will never use a plain word when a multi-syllabled fancy one can be crammed in. The sort of folks who don't walk, they perambulate, who don't read, they "peruse" ... you get the idea...
