Silly Old Toad

Listen with YouTube

Silly old toad, sitting by the road
Wondering just why he's so cold.
He sits there in no underwear
And not a hair on his body.

Little boy comes, sucking his thumb
Blowing on his hands so numb.
Picks up the toad that was sitting by the road
And gently puts him in his pocket.

Along comes a deer who happened to be near
Walks up to little boy without any fear.
He kneels down, let's the little boy on
And they wander on through the forest.

They come to a place where there's lots of space
Little boy builds a big fireplace.
Lights up the fire, the flame get higher
Warming up their cold little bodies.

Boy takes out the toad who was sitting by the road
And puts him by the fire so he is no longer cold.
He looks at the deer, and in a voice so clear
He sings out a lullaby.

Along comes a man, gun in his hand
Shoots the deer as fast as he can.
Little boy cries, as the deer dies
And the toad jumps away from the fire.

Silly old toad, sitting by the road
Wondering just why he's so cold.
He sits there in no underwear
And not a hair on his body.
