John the Frog

from Hippo Spider e​.​p by Rosie



This is one of our less serious songs, but some of us are very fond of it. It was recorded at the end of our session at "The Studio" when Doug's voice was nearly dead from all the shouting he had been doing.


I know a frog named John
He asked if there's something wrong
and I said nothing John

Nothings wrong
You're ok
Find your legs
Run away
Before they get you too

He didn't live that long
God bless John
Well I went to his son
and said

Please be strong
We all change
Help your mum
She's deranged
The bastards got her too

I've got a friend named John
He asked if something's wrong
and I said nothings wrong

Nothings wrong
You're ok
Find your legs
Run away
