Down beside a rushy pool.
Twenty little coats of green,
Twenty vests all white and clean.
"First we study, then we play;
That is how we keep the rule,
When we froggies go to school."
Called his classes in their turn.
Taught them how to nobly strive,
Also how to leap and dive.
Taught them how to say, "Ker-Chog!"
Taught them how to dodge a blow,
From the sticks that bad boys throw.
Bull-frogs they became at last.
Not one dunce among the lot,
Not one lesson they forgot.
As each froggie ought to be.
Now they sit on other logs,
Teaching other little frogs.
