DMC: "A Grand Old Frog" by Gayle C. Krause




Based on "You're a Grand Old Flag" by George M. Cohan.

A Grand Old Frog

He’s a grand old frog,


who can leap through the bog,

and forever in spring may he croak. 
An Olympian; 
Amphibian;


the best of the high-jumping folk.

Ev'ry polliwog wants to be this grand frog. 
He’s a champion, who soars through the sky,


But they don’t know that his secret is … 
He’s just catching a grand old fly.
