DS has come home from nursery singing a song. He has all the tune, but not many words, I recognise it, just can't remember the words. It's a counting tune. Here is ds's version:

dum dum de dum de dee
dum de dum de dum de
eating the most enormous dum
one jumped into the pool where it was nice and cool
then there was one dum de dum

One little speckled frog,
sat on a speckled log
eating the most delicious ?
one jumped into the pool where it was nice and cool
then there was one delicious ?

It's to do with frogs and logs. They were eating the most enormous bug (glub glub). Sorry don't know the exact words!

2 little speckled frogs, sat on a speckled log
eating some most delicious grubs, yum yum
one jumped into the pool where it was nice and cool, now there is one green speckled frog

Five little speckled frogs
Sat on a speckled log
Eating some most delicious grubs (yum yum)
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Then there were four speckled frogs (glub glub)

Count down to no speckled frogs.

Thank you, I have now remembered my version.

One little speckled frog,
sat on a speckled log
eating the most delicious bugs (yum yum)
one jumped into the pool where it was nice and cool
then there was one green speckled frog

five little speckled frogs,
sat on a speckled log
eating the most delicious bugs (glug glug)
one jumped into the pool where it was nice and cool
then there was four more speckled frogs

and it keeps going till there are none

Right, I might have this a bit wrong, but could it be..

Five little speckled frogs
Sat on a speckled log
Eating some most delicious grubs (glub,glub)
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Leaving just four speckled frogs (glub,glub)

(Continues counting back until there are none left)

bobbybob Fri 15-Apr-05 22:57:05

Wow cross posted with the absolutely correct counting down version. Thanks all.

TinyGang Fri 15-Apr-05 22:57:07

Darn it - you lot type so fast!

Where it was nice and cool
Then there was one more speckled frog, glug,glug

Jesus, I need to get out more.

TinyGang Fri 15-Apr-05 22:59:07

Looks like we all could emmatom!

My, how motherhood changes us eh?! Wind back 20 years and imagine us all spending a Friday night discussing the words of "One Little Speckled Frog"

marthamoo Fri 15-Apr-05 23:04:05

Thanks so much for that observation, bubble

emmatom Fri 15-Apr-05 23:04:57

Next Friday I will mostly be singing.....The Wheels on the Bus.

bubble99 Fri 15-Apr-05 23:13:07

You must definately be keeping more sophisticated company on your Friday nights emmatom. "Wheels on the Bus" eh? Round this way we rebel with a quick burst of "Heads, Shoulders Knees and Toes" and a diluted fruitjuice.

marthamoo Fri 15-Apr-05 23:14:18

You can't beat Twinkle, Twinkle.

TinyGang Fri 15-Apr-05 23:19:25

Steady on marthamoo, that's a bit hardcore isn't it? You'll be suggesting In and Out the Dusty Bluebells next and before you know it we'll be on the cocoa before bedtime.

Oh, how Friday nights have changed - so true Bubble!

marthamoo Fri 15-Apr-05 23:20:26

I sing Twinkle, Twinkle every night. I'm a pro.

bubble99 Fri 15-Apr-05 23:20:32

Twinkle, Twinkle?! Hardcore marthamoo, 'nuff respect.

bubble99 Fri 15-Apr-05 23:28:24

And I'm assuming that you do actually have children marthamoo? Not that there's anything wrong with you singing Twinkle, Twinkle every night anyway.

marthamoo Fri 15-Apr-05 23:30:18

I do have children but I sing Twinkle, Twinkle to dh

bubble99 Fri 15-Apr-05 23:32:56

oooooh! Kinky! We're now straying into giant nappy territory and I'm not sure I want to go there.
