Lyrics

Freaked out teenaged tadpoles
Skippin’ on down the creek
Freaked out teenaged tadpoles
Jumpin and hittin my cheek
Not quite fish
Not quite frogs
Smack somewhere in between
Freaked out teenaged tadpoles
Skippin’ on down the creek.

Freaked out teenaged tadpoles
Goin’ to their first dance
Some of them don’t have legs yet
But they’ll wiggle for the sake of romance
Not quite fish
Not quite frogs
But they can’t leave it all to chance
Freaked out teenaged tadpoles
Goin’ to their first dance.

(Dance Break)

Oh it’s hard to be a grown up
And it’s hard to be a kid
And when you’re in the middle
It’s hard to know where you fit
Things are still growing
Things are popping out
And you’re starting to lose your tail
It’s just about as hard as anything
But little critter you’re gonna prevail.

Freaked out teenaged tadpoles
Skippin’ on down the creek
Freaked out teenaged tadpoles
Jumpin and hittin my cheek
Not quite fish
Not quite frogs
Smack somewhere in between
Freaked out teenaged tadpoles
Skippin on down the creek.
Freaked out teenaged tadpoles
Flippin’ out down the creek.
