This song has many versions, with versions from England and the southern United States, named everything from Kemo Kimo to The Frog in the Well. It also seems to be related to the song, The Frog Went A-Courtin’. I chose a version with child-friendly lyrics. 🙂


1. There was a frog lived in the spring,
Sing song kitty catcha kimee oh.
He could dance and he could sing.
Keemo kymo dayro dime.

Hey ho, subble bubble sipso.
Periwinkle soapfat, pennywinkle nip cat.
Sing song kitty catcha kimee oh.

2. Oh, what you gonna do when the rain don’t fall? Sing song…
Crops grow small instead of tall, Sing song… Refrain
