This song is on both the “Happity Birthday!” CD and the “Positive Praise!” CD.

 

Friendly Philemon Frog, he’s one fantastic neighbor

Friendly Philemon Frog, he’ll jump to do a favor

He’s a friend indeed to his friends in need.

He’s a friend that’s true when the sky’s not blue

‘Cause Philemon Frog keeps the Golden Rule:

“Treat other people as you’d like them to treat you!”

Yes, Philemon Frog keeps the Golden Rule.

Yes, Philemon Frog keeps the Golden Rule.

 

Friendly Philemon Frog, he’s one fantastic buddy

Friendly Philemon Frog, he’s kind to everybody

He’s a friend indeed to his friends in need.

He’s a friend that’s true when the sky’s not blue

‘Cause Philemon Frog keeps the Golden Rule

“Treat other people as you’d like them to treat you!”

Yes, Philemon Frog keeps the Golden Rule

Yes, Philemon Frog keeps the Golden Rule

 

Be friendly, loving & kind, and don’t forget to share

Be friendly, loving & kind. Show someone you care.

Be a friend indeed to your friends in need.

Be a friend that’s true when the sky’s not blue

Be children who love to keep the Golden Rule

“Treat other people as you’d like them to treat you!”

Be children who love to keep the Golden Rule

Be children who love to keep the Golden Rule

Suggested Movements:

Children may make a fist and pretend that is their “frog” and jump it to the beat from one side of their lap to the other. Children are seated for this song as they watch the “frog” puppet. After the phrase “‘Cause Philemon Frog keeps the golden rule….” there is a short pause where you may say “which is” and motion the children to sing: “Treat other people as you’d like them to treat you!” They should learn that phrase in an explanation of the Golden Rule prior to singing the song.

Suggested Props:

Golden Ruler, Friendly Philemon Frog Puppet
