Much Ado about Nothing

There Was a Little Turtle

  • There was a little turtle
  • Who lived in a box
  • He swam in the puddles
  • And climbed on the rocks
  • He snapped at a mosquito,
  • He snapped at a flea,
  • He snapped at a minnow,
  • And he snapped at ME!
  • He caught the mosquito,
  • He caught the flea.
  • He caught the minnow,
  • <pause>
  • ….But he didn’t catch ME!

Five Green and Speckled Frogs

  • Five Green and speckled frogs,
    Sitting on a hollow log,
    Eating some most delicious bugs,
    Yum, Yum.
    One frog jumped in the pool,
    Where it was nice and cool,
    Now there are only four speckled frogs,
    Glub, glub.
