A fairly rare camp song. Its another one of those songs that just seems to stick in your mind FOREVER.

The way you sing this song is first time slow and quiet and each time increasing speed and volume.

I heard it for the first time at YMCA Camp Tippecanoe (in my biased opinion it is one of the best camps around.)

Dog!
Dog-Cat!
Dog-Cat-Mouse!
FROGGY!

Itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny, little green froggy.
Jump, Jump, Jump little froggy!

Gobble up all them worms and spiders.
Fleas and flies, scrumpt-diddly-oatous.

Ribbit, Ribbit, Ribbit, Ribbit, Croak!

(Repeat until it's going so fast people can't keep up, or alternately if people talk to much until everyone looses their voice *grin*.)

Note also that there are several variations of this song also with and without the Ribbit line and changing some other verses around, but this was the original version I learned.

Also can refer to jumping to do something, as in: "Boy he's sure froggy today."
