The Tree Toad


(Scottish folk song, Lyrics anonymous)

A tree toad loved a fair she toad
That lived up in a tree.
She was a fair three-toed tree toad,
But a two-toed tree toad was he.
The two-toed tree toad tried to win
The she toad’s friendly nod;
For the two-toed tree toad loved the ground
That the three-toed tree toad trod.

Now three-toed tree toads have no care
For two-toed tree toad love.
But the two-toed tree toad fain would share
A tree home up above.
In vain the two-toes tree toad tried;
He could not please her whim.
In her tree toad bower with her veto power,
The she toad vetoed him.
