lyrics

WE'RE ALL FROGS (Words and Music - Robert Childs)

The world is a festering cesspit swamp
Society's the slime that we're swimming on
They chop off our legs and feed us to their dogs
They open our bodies because we are frogs

We're all frogs
We're all frogs
We're all frogs
We're all frogs

We dive into drains, we live in their sewers
In order to hide from their scalpels and skewers
Our bodies preserved, which they gape at agog
It's formalin-justice because we are frogs

We're all frogs
We're all frogs
We're all frogs
We're all frogs

They study our habits, monitor our coitus
They treat us like rabbits and they try to exploit us
We leap into ditches, we hide under logs,
We suffer oppression because we are frogs

We're all frogs
We're all frogs
We're all frogs
We're all frogs

Limnodynastes tasmaniensis,
Litoria tyleri or L. wotjulumensis,
Rheobatrachus that lives in the bogs,
Bufo marinus - Yes! We are all frogs.

We're all frogs
We're all frogs
We're all frogs
We're all frogs.
