Don't smoke around the baby
'Cause that's not fair to him
Sometimes we get so frigging lazy
In our baby-soft skin
What have we become
There's no surprise
They say we came from pond scum
We came in with a big bang
Might as well go out with one

The government is a hard case
Life is on the skids
They built a fence to keep the kids out of the tar pond
They can't keep the tar pond out of the kids

And we're lying around on the couch with a mouthful of cheesies
We're easily sucked in to a talk-show cat fight
Two jewelry-clad mad women who want their dead ex-husband's money

No more fish
More dead frogs found in Antigonish
This harsh world we live in
Is no place to raise an amphibian

Don't smoke around the baby
'Cause that's not fair to him
Sometimes we get so frigging lazy
In our baby-soft skin
What have we become
There's no surprise
They say we came from pond scum
We came in with a big bang
Might as well go out with one

    Song Meaning"I was originally inspired to write this song when I was at Chuggle's in Antigonish, Nova Scotia with Rock Ranger reading a newspaper. One of the headlines read, "More Dead Frogs Found in Antigonish." I have since discovered that 32% of the world's amphibian population is either extinct or endangered. This is due to disease, pollution and climate change. I have always had a soft spot for frogs, and as a child I kept many as pets. We would catch them in the brook behind our house and return them later." - Colleen Power
