Eating the most delicious grubs, yum yum
One jumped into the pool,
Where it was nice and cool
Then there were four green speckled frogs, glub glub

Five little men in a flying saucer,
Flew round the world one day
They looked left and right
But they didn't like the sight,
So one man flew away....Whoosh!

But they didn't like the sight,
So one man flew away....Whoosh!

Flew round the world one day
They looked up and down
And he really liked the town,
So he decided to stay.
