The bird, the frog and the trout

A little bird set on the limb of a tree
chirping and warbling as loud as can be
while down by the pond a little frog set
on a rock by the water all shiny and wet
Said the frog to the bird, I can sing just like you
and started in croaking while eating flies too
A trout in the pond covered his ears
and if he'd been dry, I'm sure you'd see tears
Please stop all that croaking he said with a frown
all of that noise could make a fish drown
The little frog jumped and snapped at his fin
that all that you know he said with a grin
With a flip of his tail the trout swam away
and hid in the shadows the rest of the day
The little bird laughed and said to the frog
your singings just fine if you live in a bog
Each to their own the little frog said
and the bird did agree with a nod of his head
