The Great Regret

(Verse 1)

EGRET (POMPEII):

Oh, Good day to you, miss.

Oh, the weather’s been bliss.

Don’t you think so? Oh, I think so.

What a glorious day.

Oh, it’s heaven I’d say.

Don’t ya think so? Oh, I think so.

Not to change the mood.

But I’m foraging for food.

Lookin’ near these logs.

For a fish … or maybe frogs.

Say, you look like a frog.

RANA:  I don’t think so.   

EGRET:   Yes, I think so.

RANA:  I don’t think so. 

EGRET:  Yes, I think so.

RANA:  No.

EGRET:  So.

RANA:  No. 

EGRET:  So. 

RANA:  No. 

EGRET:  So. 

RANA:  No. 

EGRET:  So. 

(They start fighting, saying “no” back and forth, faster and faster.)

RANA: We gotta, swim, swim, swim, swim,we gotta swim, swim, swim.

ALL: We gotta swim, swim, swim, swim, swim.

We gotta swim, swim, swim, swim.

We gotta swim, swim, swim, swim…

(Verse 2)

SNAPPING TURTLE (FRANK):  

I’m Captain Turtle.

Yes, Snapping Turtle.

March now 2,3,4

I’m Captain Turtle

Yes, snapping turtle

Good news:  You’re relieved for sure. 

Shore leave

Yes, Shore leave

The battle now is done.

I’m putting my request in

To report to my intestines.

RANA:  You gotta Jump, jump, jump, jump, you gotta jump jump jump.  

ALL: You gotta Jump, jump, jump, jump, you gotta jump, jump., jump… and HIDE!
