Sing a Song

I am a Little Toad

Little Toad
I am a little toad.
Hopping down the road. (hop up and down)
Just listen to my song. (make ribbit noises)
I sleep all winter long (palms together on check)
When spring comes, I peep out, (peep behind hands)
and then I jump about (jump around)
and now I catch a fly (clap hands)
and now I wink my eye. (wink)
and now and then I hop. (hop)
and now and then I stop. (sit down)
