Relate the tale (hallelujah)
Relate the tale (Hallelujah)
Relate the tale (Hallelujah)
Relate the tale (Hallelujah)
Relate the tale (Hallelujah)
Relate the tale (Hallelujah)
Relate the tale (Hallelujah)
Relate the tale (Hallelujah)
Relate the tale (Hallelujah)
Relate the tale (Hallelujah)
Relate the tale (Hallelujah)
Relate the tale (Hallelujah)
Relate the tale (Hallelujah)

How could the God of frogs
have allowed this thing to happen? (Hallelujah)
How could the God of frogs
Have made this mistake? (Hallelujah)
Although I've prayed for company
A hundred thousand times (Hallelujah)
I did not expect my Prayers answered
all in the same day (Hallelujah)
on the same day (Hallelujah)
on the same day (Hallelujah)
on the same day (Hallelujah)

we hopped from the Nile
to every corner of the fields' lands
and hopped hopeful into homes and ovens
weighed down by the fear of sand
amphibians were taking over
now we had the chance
alas, our transformation into princes
was destined not to last.
it seems we outstayed our welcome,
our dead rotting in their piles
but I for one went sneaking back
into the bloody Nile
with a message to croak forwards to our future generations
if the day was but a plague of frogs
all else is an invention
(Hallelujah, hallelujah...)
an invention (Hallelujah)


How could the God of frogs
have allowed this thing to happen? (Hallelujah)
How will the God of man
relate the tale? (Hallelujah)
How could the God of frogs
have allowed this thing to happen? (Hallelujah)
How will the God of man
relate the tale? (Hallelujah)
relate the tale (Hallelujah)
relate the tale (Hallelujah)
relate the tale (Hallelujah)
relate the tale (Hallelujah)
etc.

    General CommentThis was written for the Plague Songs compilation, and takes a frog's eye view of the Plague of Frogs.

    General CommentOne of the first songs I heard from KC and it has stuck with me all these years very much as a fave. The beauty of his voice paints a picture of a frog living through a very dark day - and conveys the passion, confusion, terror and gravity of the fateful day of the plague.
