The Lyrics

Now, this is my kind of hip-hop music ... :-)
"Rana Ana Wants Me"

(musical fade-in overlaid with ribbits)

Oooooooh-ooooh-umm-ummm
Oooooooh-ooooh-umm-ummm

Rana** Ana wants me, but I won’t go back there.
Rana Ana wants me, but I won’t go back there.
If she wanted you, you’d balk, too.

If a man ever hated fly meat, I do
I no more eat quite the way I did and trout do.
I’d still be a just lowly frog without you.
Ever since your kiss de-frogged me
my froggy ex has dogged me

Rana Ana wants me, but I won’t go back there.
Rana Ana wants me, but I won’t go back there.
If she wanted you, you’d balk, too.

It’s Grimm to think the man that I’ve become
could now revert to rana form in sunshine by the pond.
I was a prince before, with her accursed wand,
some witch a frog’s shape gave me.
You, with one kiss from that saved me.

Rana Ana wants me, but I won’t go back there.
Rana Ana wants me, but I won’t go back there.
(music overiaid with ribbits)
If she wanted you, you’d balk, too.

I hope I’m never far away from you
I sooner would croak of listenin’ to your CDs of Zamfir’s
tootles than repeat a moment of those hoppy years
-- again as frog a-bound be --
m’love, since you re-crowned me

Rana Ana wants me, but I won’t go back there.
Rana Ana wants me, but I won’t go back there.
If she wanted you, you’d balk, too.

Rana Ana wants me, but I won’t go back there.
