(music by Justine Paul, words by Barbara Richards)

Re-joice, rejoice to welcome spring
    Down in every pond the froggies sing

The peepers chime their clarion notes
    "Peeper-peeper-peep! Peeper-peeper-peep!"

The wood frogs clear their throbbing throats
    "Creeker-creeker-creek! Creeker-creeker-creek!"

"Plunka-plunka-plunk!" the green frog strums
    And the big bass bull frog "Chugga-chugga-rums!"
