Hungry Old Bullfrog by Vicky Manning

This weekend I was the storyteller for the Home and Garden Show in New Albany, MS. I wrote this fingerplay just for the event and the adults laughed harder than the children, so fun.

Hungry Old Bull frog

By Vicky C. Manning

Five little flies flying around the lilies.

Teasing old bullfrog, can’t zap me, can’t zap me

And there old bullfrog sat looking mighty silly

cause his eyes went this way, his eyes went that way

And he zapped a fly right off of the lilly.

Four little flies flying around the lilies.

Teasing old bullfrog, can’t zap me, can’t zap me

And there old bullfrog sat looking mighty silly

cause his eyes went this way, his eyes went that way

And he zapped a fly right off of the lilly.

Three little flies flying around the lilies.

Teasing old bullfrog, can’t zap me, can’t zap me

And there old bullfrog sat looking mighty silly

cause his eyes went this way, his eye went that way

and he zapped a fly right off the lilly.

Two little flies flying around the lilies.

Teasing old bullfrog, can’t zap me, can’t zap me

and there old bullfrog sat looking mighty silly

cause his eyes went this way, his eyes went that way

and he zapped a fly right off the lilly.

One little fly flying around a lilly.

Teasing old bullfrog can’t zap me, can’t zap me

and there old bullfrog sat looking mighty silly

cause his eyes went this way, his eyes went that way

and he zapped a fly right off the lilly.

No more flies are flying around the lillies

Teasing old bullfrog can’t zap me, can’t zap me

and old bullfrog is no longer looking silly

cause his tongue zapped this way, his tongue zapped that way

and he was full of flies on the lillies.
