Jump at the opportunity, listen to what I say You gotta hop to it, do do do do Hop to it, do do do do Hop to it, do do do do Like a happy rabbit, you gotta hop to it Hop to it, do do do do Hop to it, do do do do Hop to it, do do do do Like a happy rabbit, you gotta hop to it Do do do do you want to have a good day? This is how it starts Wake up in the morning feeling happy in your heart If someone should ask you, "Do you wanna dance?" Come on, don't be shy now, you gotta jump at the chance You gotta hop to it, do do do do Hop to it, do do do do Hop to it, do do do do Like a happy rabbit, you gotta hop to it Hop to it, do do do do Hop to it, do do do do Hop to it, do do do do Like a happy rabbit, you gotta hop to it Alright everybody, let's hop to it now! Get yourselves movin' and groovin'! Do do do do you want to know a secret? I've got one for you If you want to live a good life there's one thing you should do When you see someone unhappy who needs a helping hand Jump at the chance to be a friend, give all the love you can You gotta hop to it, do do do do Hop to it, do do do do Hop to it, do do do do Like a happy rabbit, you gotta hop to it Hop to it, do do do do Hop to it, do do do do Hop to it, do do do do Like a happy rabbit, you gotta hop to it Do do do do do

(Spoken word interlude) Three green and speckled frogs Sitting on a speckled log Eating the most delicious bugs (yum yum!) One jumped into the pool Where it was nice and cool Now there's only two green speckled frogs Sittin' on that log (Spoken word interlude) Two green and speckled frogs Sitting on a speckled log Eating the most delicious bugs (yum yum!) One jumped into the pool Where it was nice and cool Now there's only one green speckled frog Sittin' on that log (Spoken word interlude) One green and speckled frog Sitting on a speckled log Eating the most delicious bugs (yum yum!) She jumped into the pool Where it was nice and cool Now there are no more green speckled frogs On that log Those green and speckled frogs Sittin’ all alone in the bog, where it’s cool They went a-swimmin’, laughin’ and a-grinnin’ Now there are no more green speckled frogs Sittin’ on a log
