Five little speckled frogs
(Hold up five fingers)

Sitting on a speckled log

Eating some most delicious bugs.
(Pretend to eat bugs)

Yum! Yum!

One jumped into the pool,
(One child from the center jumps back into the circle)

Where it was nice and cool.
(Cross arms over chest and shiver)

Now there are four little speckled frogs.

Burr-ump!
