(Tune: Oh, Christmas Tree)

O Tom the Toad, O Tom the Toad, why did you jump into the road?
You were so big & green & fat, but now you're small & red & flat.
O Tom the Toad, poor Tommy Toad, why did you jump into the road?

O Tom the Toad, O Tom the Toad, why are you lying in the road?
You did not see that car ahead, & you were flattened by the tread.
O Tom the Toad, poor Tommy Toad, why are you lying in the road?

O Suzie Skunk, O Suzie Skunk, why do you make my tires go thunk?
You did not look from east to west, now on the road there's such a mess.

O Sam the Snake, O Sam the Snake, why do you lie out there and bake?
You did not see that truck go by & now you look like a butterfly.

O Possum Pete, O Possum Pete, there's nothing left but hair & feet.
You thought you'd beat that bus across & now you look like a pile of moss.

Arm'dillo Tex, Arm'dillo Tex, why are you looking so perplexed?
Across the yellow line you strayed, the truck hit you - like a
grenade!
Arm'dillo Tex, Arm'dillo Tex, why are you looking so perplexed?

O Froggie Fred, O Froggie Fred, why do you lie there stone-cold dead?
You didn't look as you jumped out, a ten-ton truck ran up your snout!

dead?

O Swallow Sam, O Swallow Sam, what turned your body into jam?
Into the air you'd quickly speed, an eighteen-wheeler made you bleed.
O Swallow Sam, poor Swallow Sam, what turned your body into jam?

O Doggie Spot, O Doggie Spot, upon the road you're such a blot.
Out in the lane you boldly went, now your bod's not worth a cent!
O Doggie Spot, poor Dogfit Spot, upon the road you 're such a blot.

O Bunny Ben, O Bunny Ben, why are your ears mashed flat & thin?
Out on the road you quickly jumped, you didn't count on getting
bumped.

O Billy Bat, O Billy Bat, why are you lying still like that?
Along the road U swooped & flapped, but on a windshield U got zapped!
O Billy Bat, O Billy Bat, why are you lying still like that?

O Turtle Ted, O turtle Ted, your shell's all broken - so's your head.
In the road U thought you'd travel, now you're ground into the gravel.
O Turtle Ted, O turtle Ted, your shell's all broken - so's your head.
