A cat and a dog, and a little green frog
Were sitting atop of a tree
The dog gave a bark, and said "It's now dark"
"Now what will I have for my tea?"

It gnawed on a leaf that tasted of beef
Whilst the cat ate a twig with a spoon
The frog gave a sigh, and leapt to the sky
And stuck out its tongue at the moon

The cat sat and purred, whilst watching a bird
Which played a small drum with its wings
The frog said "How cute!", and pulled out a lute
And they all got together to sing

They sang of the stars, that shone from afar
Until they fell down to Earth in the snow
And swept by the breeze, they painted the trees
And caused all the apples to grow

The cat stopped the song, when a lad came along
Who was whistling a tune on the path
The dog tried to hide, behind the cat's side
But the frog it just gave out a laugh

The lad stopped and stared, at the animals there
Which danced on their legs and their tails
He had a quick think, and then a quick drink
From a sack that he held full of ale

He then walked away, and was heard to say
"I can't really believe what I see!"
"A cat and a dog, and a little green frog"
"Are sitting atop of that tree!"
