Don’t try to juggle bouncy balls,
for balls are small, they slide and fall.
They spring across the floors and walls.
It’s much too hard to juggle balls.
And best beware of juggling plates,
for plates aren’t great—they oscillate.
They spin. They drop. They always break!
You’ll soon crack up when juggling plates.
And never try to juggle bags,
for beanie bags are soft; they sag.
They slip. They drag. They’re hard to snag.
You’ll tire and flag while juggling bags.
If you must juggle, take my tip:
the object that is best to grip,
oozes slime too thick to slip.
Just grab some FROGS and watch them flip!

In temperament frogs are delightful.
Their notion of swans though is spiteful.
Those birds stole away,
A famous ballet
Claiming frog legs in tights too frightful!

Some frogs jump,
some frogs don't.
Some frogs climb,
some frogs won't.
Some frogs swim,
some say shan't.
Some frogs fly,
some say can't.
Some frogs hop,
that's their thing.
Some frogs croak
instead of sing.
Do frogs dance?
Some frogs don't.
Some frogs could,
most frogs won't.
But I love to dance in the light of the moon,
on my green lilypad to a radio tune,
and I don't care what some frogs say -
I dance all night, and I sing all day!
