Frog 02:39
You got cold feet / freezy freezy You got thin socks / itsy bitsy freezy feety It’s a god damn cold day / nose is getting sneezy Feeling stiff and grey / no hot soup to eaty eaty And all you’ve got is a .. frog Not a cozy fire / just a regular frog Not a nice toasty blanket / just a regular frog Not a warm foot bath / just a regular frog With its googly eyes / your longtime family frog Cause all you’ve got is a .. family frog You wanna generate heat / but not through friction You sit inside your kitchen / And you’ve got that frog addiction What the hell, you think / In your mind it goes: “bing” You grab the frog from the sink / gonna make that froggy sing Cause Microwaves resolve that contradiction To make a cold frog hot three minutes in the microwave To make a hot frog pop two more little minutes in the microwave When you were a tadpole / you couldn‘t warm up anything You were so much smaller / I could have lost you in the sink Now that you’ve grown / two-hundred grams or more It would really leave a trace / if I stepped on you on the floor Since then I found for you / a place in this family at least as long as microwaves have electricity Please don’t explode, my precious toad Please don’t explode, my precious toad I want you to keep me warm until I‘m lonely and old To make a cold frog hot three minutes in the microwave To make a hot frog pop two more little minutes in the microwave But if you want a warm frog and you don’t want it to pop Give it into the warm gentle hands of your mother

If you have a daughter If you have a son If you have children, and you want to hide them If you have children, and you want to hide them Where should you hide your children Where should you hide your children Where should you hide your children Should you hide them… Under the table Under the table Under the table Under the table If you have a lama with a pain in its neck The lama needs an operation And during the operation it needs to put its head somewhere Where should you place its head Where should you put its head Where should you place its head Should you put it Under the table Under the table Under the table Under the table Invincible Invisible Where I feel safe Where I feel brave If you’re having dinner in your favorite restaurant And you go there, and you can’t find your friends You ask the waiter Where are my friends Where are my friends, and he sais Your friends Your friends Your friends Are Under the table Under the table Under the table Under the table Invincible Invisible Where I feel safe Where I feel brave Under the table Under the table Under the table Under the table

Crocodile 02:13
If you got a crocodile you need nobody else If you got a crocodile you need nobody else It crawls into your heart and you will love it for the rest of your life / You will never love again If you got a crocodile you need nobody else If you got a crocodile you need nobody else It crawls into your heart and you will love it for the rest of your life / You will never love again Crocodiles are your friends in the morning Crocodiles eat your friends in the evening Crocodiles bake you bread Before they shake you dead Crocodiles bring you coffee to your bed / on top of their flat head / but once you are well fed/ they eat you up instead Crocodiles are really shitty kissers Crocodiles are not that skilled with scissors Crocodiles in disguise Eat you by surprise Crocodiles seem like they’re your friend / but that’s just pretend / hard to comprehend / theyll tear off your rear end Space crocodile, Space crocodile I want to be riding on your back for a while Space crocodile, Space crocodile I want to be riding on your back for a while Look at all the stars Look at all the galaxies Look at all the scars Look at all my injuries I remember / when you first kissed me / I still had my head / now I’m dead

I was listening to my favorite song I felt like moving sitting there was just wrong I heard a voice “get on your feet come on you have no choice, my dear you’re beautiful you’re strong” Danza come un girino danza,… danza danza picolo girino danza, danza, danza Danza come un girino danza,… danza danza picolo girino danza, danza, danza When the music stopped I tried to calm down had to figure out what had gone on What is a girino I wish - i wish I knew and who is this latino telling me what to do But there was the voice again “get on your feet come on you have no choice, my dear you’re beautiful you’re strong” Danza come un girino danza,… danza danza picolo girino danza, danza, danza Danza come un girino danza,… danza danza picolo girino danza, danza, danza No, I don’t want to dance no more No, I don’t want to dance no more No, I don’t want to dance no more No, I don’t want to dance no more But then the voice comes back My mind just fades to black, and it sais “if you don’t want to dance, like a girino, just jumpa, jumpa, jumpa come un delphino “ Jumpa, come un delphino Jumpa, come un delphino Jumpa, come un delphino Jumpa, come un delphino Danza, come un girino Danza, come un girino Danza, come un girino Danza, Danza, Danza, Danza, Danza, Danza, Danza, Danza

Hope 03:47
I was stuck, in the elevator and I pressed the emergendy button and it actually worked Somebody heard me and somebody saved me That gives me hope All that I needed to see Was that at least somebody thought it through I’m wishin’ that I could say That that’s the case for me and you The other day I suffered from menstruation cramps and I took a painkiller and it actually worked The pain went away almost instantly That gives me hope All that I needed to see Was that at least somebody thought it through I’m wishin’ that I could say That that’s the case for me and you My partner left me and she found somebody new Who loves her as much as I did but she loves him too She found a lover for whom she can feel the same She found symmetrical love Love That gives me hope hope hope hope
