"The Tale of the Horny Frog" as written by Wayne Coyne, Steven Drozd and Michael Ivins....
Well this frog was hopping on down the road
He was thinking about courting
He had his hopes dashed too
He got squished by a car, but just his one leg
He thought, "For making tadpoles
Just one leg ought to do"
He thought, "Hm, I've been heart broke before
Left a hole you drive a truck through"
He hopped on down the road
A little bit further towards the truth

Now this one legged frog was just carrying on
He was thinking about courting
So he revised a sense of duty
He ran into a dog that hadn't eaten for days
And that dog bit his eye
But he missed with the bigger tooth
He said, "I can see more clearly now
Desire has a way of getting you through
Oh, I know how you loved me back then
Now it's hard to face the truth"

Now this one-eyed, one-legged, determined ol' frog
He was thinking about courting
He jumped up on a log
Well, that log was infested
By some pissed off bees
And they stung their stingers
Wherever they could get them to
"Because I love you, what kind of hell do I put myself through?"
He hopped on down the road
There is no pain this way to the truth

And by the time he got to his amphibian mate
He was so scared of pain
He thought she'd just have to wait
But she was a demanding old toad and having none of that
He saw in her eyes, "The truth is here at last"
"What kind of urge could take this lily pad to the moon?
The grand old urge, but how eyes and legs can I lose?
Pleasures so painful, it seems the joy is in the pursuit"
He hopped on down the road
Knowing he finally found some truth

    General Commentthis is so cute it's about a frog who is looking for "the truth" (who in the end of the song ends up being the 'old toad' he happened to be scared of getting hurt from being in love) and on his journey towards finding "truth" he runs into bad obstacles but carries on and transforms pain into positivity to continue journey...in the end he is so scared of pain (from obstacles) that he thinks the old toad would hurt him but he realized she wouldn't...therefore making her 'the truth'
