lyrics

A bullfrog wants a girl frog to notice him
All the bullfrogs want the girl frogs to notice them
The bullfrog finds a culvert beneath the road
The bullfrog sings his love song
through his microphone

He sings, “This is a song about a girl.”

I got a guitar on my shoulder, don’t I look fine?
If I sang to you what I can’t say,
could I make you mine?
If I told you she denied my love,
and I drank myself to sleep,
She never listened to my song,
would you have some pity on me?

When I look into her eyes, I sing silence
The ocean calms my mind, I sing silence
And words cannot describe, silence

This is a song about a girl.
She deserves a better song

The bullfrog sings his love song
through his microphone
