LYRICS:
There once was a frustrated frog named Ferdinand, livin' down in the swamp. . .He'd sit all day on his lily pad, but he would never jump. . .He was the laziest bull frog in all the fifty states. . .He would not leave his lily pad he'd just sit there and wait. . .For unsuspecting dragon flies to come within his reach. . .With a flip and a flap of his floppy tongue he'd get a bite to eat. . .But he was the saddest, fattest frog you have ever seen. . .For Ferdinand had no froggy friends, for Ferdinand couldn't sing

Frustrated Ferdinand, Frustrated Ferdinand, had no froggy friends. . Frustrated Ferdinand,
Frustrated Ferdinand, never cracked a grin. .We hope that something wonderful will turn his life around. .It's no fun being a bull frog when you can't make a bull frog sound

All of the frogs in the lily pond would laugh and jump and play. . .They'd poke and prod poor
Ferdinand every single day. . .But when they'd nudge he would not budge from his perch upon the
pad. . ."Why won't you sing like a bull frog, why are you oh so sad?"

Frustrated Ferdinand, Frustrated Ferdinand, had no froggy friends Frustrated Ferdinand,
Frustrated Ferdinand, never cracked a grin. .We hope that something wonderful will turn his life
around. . .It's no fun being a bull frog when you can't make a bull frog sound

Then along came a lovely lady frog, and caught old Ferdinand's eye. . .She winked and blinked at
Ferdinand, and gave him a great big smile. . .His heart jumped to attention, he nearly had a sroke. .With froggy affection, old Ferdinand finally croaked

Ferdinand finally, finally Ferdinand, Ferdinand finally croaked. . .Finally Ferdinand found a sound
down deep inside his throat. . .We're glad that someone wonderful has turned his life around. .
.It's fun being a great big bull frog makin' a bull frog sound
