Translation:Little frogs at school
Down by the water pool
the little school is lovely and cool.
Fourteen frogs in a row
Each with chalk and slate.
Numbers, sums and dictation
Are given to them every day;
And then they learn another thing:How to swim and jump.
As the sun begins to sink,
the last subject begins.
They must "kwik" and they must "kwaak",
Because they must make music.
So frogs must also learn
and must practise time and time again.
As they get older
They teach other frogs to "kwaak".
