Rockin’ Swamp Frog by Linda Lou
(this is the first song Linda has written)

Got my swamp frog,
it’s as cool as can be.
You know I got my swamp frog,
it’s as cool as can be.
Better get yourself one,
then you can play like me.

Don’t cost much,
just some greenbacks and change.
You know it don’t cost much,
just some greenbacks and change.
It’s sweepin’ the nation,
gonna be a big rage.

Now I got rhythm,
I can croak all night.
You know, now I got rhythm,
I can croak all night.
Got my baby with me
and we can play just right.

You know I got my baby with me
and we can play just right.

@ Clock & Digly, loved the frogs. Furry, I toadally agree. Anders your songs are always so well done. 
Bemuzic I made sure John croaked at the end. I really loved your fiddlestick song, was just outstanding.
 
Wes Carl what do you mean demoted?  He loved playing the swamp frog. 
Reeds, I thought the back up band was great too, didn’t have to pay him much.
Turtle, I’ve got a great rhythm section, you are right, he thought of sweeping the nation.
 
Steve, very well spoken.  Thanks Nancy, Uncle frog and I loved your frog too.  
Rtz & cooken thanks, that little frog has been a lot of fun. Maddog I thought frogalicious
was a good word, thanks a bunch.

James & Whiteowl, Thanks a bunch, it was a lot of fun and I do like to play and sing.
 Thanks Jason, I hopped right on this after I got the little frog from Pick.  

Hey Pick, I wrote this song the day I order the little frog from you,
we’ve had a lot of fun with him, Thanks again.

Thanks for all your nice comments.

I clicked 'Like' on this one.   I remember trying to write my first few songs and kind of knowing they SUCKED.  This is a pretty fun song - that's what it's about - and an excellent first song.  

I am glad Linda was the only git player on this because she has gotten pretty good in a short time and it's nice she shows it off playing solo.

The little frog is fun.  Got it from Anonymous Pick.   I doubted I could play the thing -even as simple as Linda

kept it for me.   Now I hope to go back to guitar and harp where I don't worry about keeping good time.

John

That was Frogalicious, don't look for that word in the Scrabble dictionary. But then again this ain't Scrabble, nice job Linda and John! Nice composition Linda.
