Song Description

Pete and Patty Green Frog are the proud parents of a group of pollywogs. Watching their children change right before their eyes.

Story Behind the Song

I often make up songs for my children to help teach them things. This was a song I wrote for my daughter to take to school for a special project.

nicely done.......childrens song? I enjoyed it

    - Steve Dafoe - Songwriter

You've got a winner here! Five stars! Clever lyric writing, great science teaching song. Terrific instrumentation, stellar harmonies. This song has it all. Bring on the children's music video, frogs, tadpoles and all. Love your use of alliteration Papa is pondering. Pete and Patty, such an effective tool in songwriting that so many miss. Keep up the great work; I want to hear more of it for sure.

Watch Them Change ©2011 Janet Steely

V1:Pete and Patty Bull frog sitting' by the pond.
Proud as a peacock of their little pollywogs

CH: Watch them change, watch the metamorphosis
watch 'em change

V2: Proud Patty Bull frog is picture taking crazy.
Her pollywogs are changing right before her eyes.

CH: Watch them change, watch the metamorphosis
watch 'em change

V3: Papa is pondering the wee invertebrates
they don't look a thing like him, Mama cries"Just wait!"

CH: Watch them change , watch the metamorphosis
Watch 'em change

Bridge: They were like larval tadpoles swimming in the pond..
Before too long they will be hopping amphibians

CH: Watch them change , watch the metamorphosis
Watch 'em change. (Fading volume) Watch 'em change
watch 'em change

Production ideas: acoustic guitar with vocal/harmony (male/female together on chorus)
"hey wait for us look both ways before you hop across that mud puddle. " .... "They grow up so fast don't they "
