Lyrics

Galumph went the little green frog one day
Galumph went the little green frog
Galumph went the little green frog one day
and we all go galumph galumph galumph.

But we all know frogs go
ladedadeda ladedadeda ladedadeda
we all know frogs go ladedadeda
they don't go galumph galumph galumph.

But we all know frogs go
Pop in the microwave, Pop in the microwave, Pop in the microwave
We all know frogs go Pop in the microwave
they don't go galumph, galumph, galumph.

But we all know frogs go
sizzle in the frypan, sizzle in the frypan, sizzle in the frypan
we all know frogs go sizzle in the frypan
they don't go galumph, galumph, galumph.

But we all know frogs go
splat when you step on them, splat when you step on them, splat when you step on them,
we all know frogs go splat when you step on them,
they don't go galumph, galumph, galumph.

But we all know frogs go
zzzt in the blender, zzzt in the blender, zzzt in the blender,
we all know frogs go zzzt in the blender,
they don't go galumph, galumph, galumph.
