Caribbean Amphibian

Written by Mark Saltzman
1986 Sesame Street, Inc. (ASCAP)
sung by Kermit the Frog (Jim Henson)
and some amphibian friends

I know a tropical island
Where the Mango moon and Banana sun shine
And on this tropical island
There lives a cousin of mine

Sometimes he lives in the water
Sometimes he lives on the land
Sometimes he likes to go sun himself
On soft Caribbean sand

He's a Caribbean Amphibian
He likes to hop in the tropical sea
Caribbean Amphibian
A frog in a coconut tree

The flying fish and the turtles
They've seen him hop where the pineapple grows
He likes to see all the islands
So, island-hopping he goes

Sometimes he hops to Jamaica
Sometimes to Haiti he hops
Sometimes a warm Puerto Rican beach
Is where he finally stops

He's a Caribbean Amphibian
He likes to hop in the tropical sea
Caribbean Amphibian
A frog in a coconut tree

Sometimes he lives in the water
Sometimes he lives on the land
Sometimes he likes to play music in
An all-amphibian band

He's a Caribbean Amphibian
He likes to hop in the tropical sea
Caribbean Amphibian
A frog in a coconut tree

Everybody!
He's a Caribbean Amphibian
He likes to hop in the tropical sea
Caribbean Amphibian
A frog in a coconut tree
A frog in the coconut tree

Ribbet Ribbet!
