Авторы музыки: Bobby Darin

I was sittin' by the bank on a hollow stump 
      When I thought I heard me a bullfrog jump 
      Turned around and sure enough there 
         he sat 
      He said excuse me, buddy, but I've been 
         readin' your news 
      And I'm sorry to say that I'm a 
         little confused 
      You bein' human, well you'd know where 
         it's at. 

      He said I read where this old world's 
         gonna fold 
      And all on account of a think called gold 
      And that's somethin' hard for us frogs 
         to understand 
      Now you're lookin' at me like I'm 
         kinda funny 
      But where I live we don't have no money 
      So we want to be hip to the happ'nin's 
         here on land. 

      Now I thought I was stoned so I 
         started walkin' 
      I mean whoever heard of a bullfrog talkin' 
      But then I realized I hadn't been grazin' 
         in no grain 
      So I figured I'd tell him just what I thought 
      'bout how gold was sold and how gold 
         was bought 
      And he'd understand our world when 
         I explained. 

      I said it all started a long time ago 
      When the people first learned to reap 
         and sow 
      They got all the things they needed right 
         out of the earth 
      Like how many leaves and how many trees 
      Would it take to cover up the anatomies 
      And that's how you figured how much a suit 
         of clothes was worth. 

      Well then man he learned how to milk a cow 
      And how to till the soil with a stone 
         blade plow 
      And he kept so busy he never had time to 
         do you harm 
      Then he'd take his produce and all that milk 
      And go into town and trade them for silk 
      So his woman she'd look sharp down at 
         the farm. 

      Well the bullfrog let out a belly croak 
      Like I'd told him some kind of a joke 
      And he said I think you're jivin' me my man 
         (what me?) 
      I said I know it sounds kinda mystifyin' 
      But the truth of the matter is I ain't lyin' 
      I mean I ain't talkin' no bullfrog, 
         you understand? 

      He said now don't get upset I'm not 
         agin' you 
      You just go ahead, go ahead and continue 
      And I'll be quiet and try to understand 
      He said I know about trees and leaves 
         and plants 
      And milk and silk and the farmer's 
      But what's this thing the call supply 
         and demand? 

      I said well I grow cotton and you grow corn 
      And you find your dungarees are all worn 
      And me well I got to have somethin' to eat 
      You see?  So I make you some brand 
         new threads 
      And now you bake me some fresh 
         corn bread 
      Pretty soon we'll have shops across 
         the street. 

      Well this didn't work, or so we've been told 
      And at that time they didn't know 
         about gold 
      So they all agreed they'd measure their 
         goods in salt 
      Well that idea had an early endin' 
      'cause they were eatin' more than they 
         were spendin' 
      And besides, whoever heard of keepin' 
         salt in a vault. 

      Well folks said gold was the thing to use 
      To pay for stuff like from ships to shoes 
      But it weighed too much and it looked too 
         good to spend 
      So round about sixteen hundred and ninety 
      Somebody started usin' foldin' money 
      And that's the tale, my friend, from end 
         to end. 

      Well I thought it was a damn 
         good explanation 
      I mean a real attempt at communication 
      And I only had me schoolin' up until the 
         time I was ten 
      But the bullfrog right before he 
         hopped away 
      Well I could have sworn I heard him say 
      Your world is still in the tadpole stage, 
         my friend.
