HOT FROGS ON THE LOOSE
As recorded by Fred Small on “Everything Possible: Fred Small in Concert” (1993)

[singer:] Frogs! Guck! Guck! [audience:] Whoo!
[singer:] Guck! Guck! [audience:] Whoo!
[singer:] Guck! Guck! [audience:] Whoo!
[singer:] Hot frogs on the loose!

By the light of a Tennessee moon,
From the bilious bubbles of a black lagoon,
They make a hound-dog howl, a swat team swoon.
Hot frogs on the loose!

They’ve multiplied since fifty-three,
Slurping nuclear debris,
Amphibious fabulous fancy-free.
Hot frogs on the loose!

Hippity-hoppity, here they come,
Radioactive, lookin’ for fun.
If you kiss ‘em, look out for the tongue.
Hot frogs on the loose!

[singer:] All right, frogs! Guck! Guck! [audience:] Whoo!
[singer:] Guck! Guck! [audience:] Whoo!
[singer:] Guck! Guck! [audience:] Whoo!
[singer:] Hot frogs on the loose!

They got little skinny legs and big bug-eyes.
Fraternizing’s not advised.
They like you like they like flies.
Hot frogs on the loose!

They got a chicken-nugget body an’ a whopper leap.
In your bedroom, while you sleep,
They’ll make your Geiger counter beep.
Hot frogs on the loose!

Hippity-hoppity, here they come,
Radioactive, lookin’ for fun.
If you kiss ‘em, look out for the tongue.
Hot frogs on the loose!

[singer:] all right, frogs! Guck! Guck! [audience:] Whoo!
[singer:] Guck! Guck! [audience:] Whoo!
[singer:] Guck! Guck! [audience:] Whoo!
[singer:] hot frogs on the loose

You can put the pedal to the metal till the rubber squeals,
Squish ‘em with your tires, you got hot wheels.
Now you know how it feels
To be a hot frog on the loose.

Please do not keep them as pets.
Sautéing them may bring regrets.
Make a citizen’s arrest
Of a hot frog on the loose.

Frogs for peace, frogs for defense!
Don’t be nervous; don’t be tense.
We’ve got a sure-fire three-foot fence
To keep the hot frogs from gettin’ loose.

Hippity-hoppity, here they come,
Radioactive, lookin’ for fun.
If you kiss ‘em, look out for the tongue.
Hot frogs on the loose!

[singer:] Come on, frogs! Guck! Guck! [audience:] Whoo!
[singer:] Guck! Guck! [audience:] Whoo!
[singer:] Guck! Guck! [audience:] Whoo!
[singer:] Hot frogs on the loose!
Hot frogs on the loose!
Hot frogs on the loose!
Hot frogs on the loose!
Hot frogs on the loose!
Hot frogs on the loose!

[“Guck” is my attempt at a phonetic spelling of Fred’s frog sound. I see Marymac90 spelled it “gurk.” Of the transcriptions I found online, one spelled it “glub” and another simply omitted that part of the song.]
