The Lyrics

"In that place, there were no roads. Motorized transportation broke down and burned, while the omnipresent giant toads were legion - and their riders fully as numerous. Froggy could hop a thirty foot stone wall when he was suitably urged. But one trouble: Glurmph!"
Above the sky, long far away,
Sleeping rivers where fishes play,
The starships come there, ev'ry season,
And whole towns travel, for that very reason.

Country toads, leap my home,
Down the road, flying low,
red-sun planet, river of stars,
Thund'ring skies, country toads.

Through the river, and over the mountains,
Thund'ring passage, rings loud with croakin',
Scud like lumpen clouds, racing under sky,
Crashing through the jungle with hunger in its eye.

Country toads, crushing the loam,
Riders four have left their homes,
Gone to market, toward *Verspinia*,
Beware the darkness, Country toads.

A darkened pass shows in the middle of the night-time,
Clench tight our muskets as the ground falls away,
Roaring comes the monster, hungry as the darkened realms,
The toad is eaten; it and we have become prey...

Country toads, leap my home,
Down the road, flying low,
red-sun planet, river of stars,
Thund'ring skies, country toads.

Way cool! Like the use of the term "Verspinia". Ever play the classic video game "Frogger"?
