The Frog Song

This is an instant-message collaboration between Ichabod and me.

The Frog Song

Squirl The flibberdegibbet did sit down and ribbet; so singing her little frog song

Ichabod She couldn't ad lib it and never could fib it; so she followed her script all along

Ichabod Her little frog song--and you may sing along--is full of regret and despair. The words are so sad you would swear she was mad as they melt and they stick in her hair.

Squirl In her despair and regret she did nothing but set the tone for the rest of her life. She sang the frog song till a frog came along and she decided she would be his wife.

Ichabod A few warts down the road he became a real toad, which is usually par for the course. She got her a lawyer and re-joined the choir and had a resplendent divorce

*bows to the chat masters*

I am never, ever this creative in chat. The best thing I can master is making my chat partner pee his or her pants. But never with the snappy poetry.

Thanks, Bucky, Ichabod really drives the creativity. Well, I did come up with the first line. :-)

Very nice indeed. (It's just too bad you missed Frog Month.)(Don't worry, I won't tell Swampy.)

Oops! Actually, I forgot about it until I was talking to Bucky yesterday and realized I could use it for a post.

Frog went out with her sister
celebrating the loss of her Mr.
where they drank and ordered some sole.
And our little froggy became quite groggy
and went home with a handsome tadpole!

Sierrabella, thanks for the next stanza!

LOL... Keep it up, and Kermit may have you on the Muppet show!

Well it wasn't up to par with yours.
I like happy endings.

GreatWhite, thanks! I love the Muppet show and Kermit. I would be honored to be a guest.

Sierrabelle, I just read yours to Ichabod and he liked it. After a divorce a woman should always have a fling with a younger guy. :-)

Susie, you are very astute! Thanks, we really enjoyed writing it, too.

You crack me up babe :).

Our tadpole had a squiggle that made froggy giggle.
Thus making froggy's heart whole.
The lovin' wasn't easy as froggy was sleazy and too stretched out to feel little tadpole.

Had to do it folks.

OK: WOW! How cute was that?? Froggy went a'courtin' and all, revised, remixed and re-released for the 2005 summer season.

Courtney and I are currently in Seoul, Korea. I wanted to say hello and I will try and post some pictures after we get back into our hotel later tonight.
Until then... Hope all is well.

Danielle, I'm glad I made you smile. Hope all the school stuff's going well.

Kitty, you've taken it to a whole other level. Thanks!

Eclectic, thanks. That's a great tag line!

Jamie Dawn, hope you're having a great time. I'll be looking for pictures.

That is TOO funny, Squirl.

Sounds like you and Ichabod have lots of fun together. That's wonderful.

Ladybug, yes we do. Usually we just do some bizarre free association on chat until one of us gets too busy with work to come up with something really good. Glad you liked it.

That is awesome! My hubby and I occassionally make up a song but I never write it down and we lose it (come to think of it though, they are never nearly as clever as yours!)

Blogger Squirl said...

Effie, you ought to write them down. Maybe they don't seem as clever because you just don't remmember them. :-)
