Hoppin' Toad Frog

This song is by Funny Papa Smith and appears on the compilation album The Original Howling Wolf, 1930-1931 (1972).

I'm harmless as I can be, I stays out of all peoples way
I'm harmless as I can be, I stays out of all peoples way
I'm just a little old toad, I'm gonna hop back to my home someday

I'll hop down in your basement, don't mean to harm a single soul
I'll hop down in your basement, don't mean to harm a single soul
I'll shake all of your ashes, then shovel you in some brand new coal

I don't have no friend, by myself I'm always on the road
I don't have no friend, by myself I'm always on the road
Just let me hop for you one time mama and you'll keep me for your little old toad

Mama would you let a poor little old toad frog hop down in your water pond
Mama would you let a poor little old toad frog hop down in your water pond
I'll dive down and come right out and I won't stay in your water long

I ain't no bottle stopper, I ain't no police copper, I ain't no cradle rocker, you know I ain't the baby's papa
But I know for my self, in your front yard is where I get my load
Well you talk you like my hoppin', why don't you keep me for your little toad

Mama do you know one thing, your water tank is just deep enough
Mama do you know one thing, your water tank is just deep enough
I can dive down to the bottom, take my time and then tread right back up
