There's a little white duck sitting in the water
Little white duck doing what he oughta
He took a bite of a lily pad
Flapped his wings and he said, "I'm glad"
That I'm a little white duck sitting in the water
Quack, quack, quack

There's a little green frog swimming in the water
Little green frog doing what he oughta
He jumped right off of the lily pad
That the little duck bit and he said, "I'm glad"
That I'm a little green frog swimming in the water
Gulp, gulp, gulp

There's a little black bug floating on the water
A little black bug doing what he oughta
He tickled the frog on the lily pad
That the little duck bit and he said, "I'm glad"
That I'm a little black bug floating on the water
Quick, quick, quick

There's a little red snake lying in the water
A little red snake doing what he oughta
He frightened the duck and the frog so bad
And he ate the little bug and he said, "I'm glad"
That I'm a little red snake lying in the water
Sss, sss, sss

And now there's nobody left left sitting in the water
Nobody left doing what he oughta
Nothing left but the lily pad
The duck and the frog ran away
There's nobody left sitting in the water
Boo, hoo, hoo

Because of the snake that ate the bug
That tickled the frog, that went kerchug
There's nobody left to sing about alas and alak
Not even the little white duck
Quack, quack, quack, quack
