Subject: Frog kissing - need words
From: Duster Jim
Date: 11 Jan 97 - 11:27 PM

I am not sure that this is the title, it might be Have You Ever Been Frog Kissing. I don't remember who the author is either. At any rate I would like to have the words if you can help me out

I am looking for the words and music of a song called "Frog Kissing" (or something like that). Chorus includes-"If you've never been frog kissin', then you don't know what you've been missing." Thanks!

Think I've got the program you mentioned on one of my cassettes. It seems to be a live show. I had some time today so I listened and here it is.

FROG KISSIN'
Chet Atkins

Do you remember in the fairy tale, how the wicked witch's spell
Changed the handsome prince to a toad?
Through the power of her potion, she handed him the notion
He was lower than the dirt in the road;
And though she left him green and warted, her evil plan was thwarted
When there chanced 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 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.

Once upon a time ago, I was down and feelin' low,
Like a lonely frog in a pond.
Life was just a joke 'n' I was very near a-croakin',
And I was left by life's wicked wand.
Then in the depth of my depression, there came a true expression
From a love from a lady so sweet.
She gave me warm fuzzy feelin's, feelin's that were healin',
And knocked me off my little web feet. CHORUS

There's a happy ever after land, deep in the heart of man,
Where a prince or princess abide;
But all we get are glimpses of the handsome prince or princess,
'Cause they're 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.

That's it. Hope I got the breaks in the right places.
Bill Kristensen

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!^^^
