The Kite lyrics

The Kite

Frog (spoken):
Toad?

Toad (spoken):
Yes Frog?

Frog (spoken):
We are in luck. There is a nice breeze today. Our kite will fly up and up into the sky.

Toad (spoken):
Really, Frog? You think so?

Frog (spoken):
I’m sure of it. Now, I will hold the ball of string, and you will hold the kite and run and RUN!

Toad (spoken):
Alright. Here I go!

Birds(spoken):
(laughing)

Toad (spoken):
What is so funny?

Lady Bird 1 (spoken):
That kite won’t fly.

Lady Bird 2 (spoken):
Not in a million years.

Boy Bird (spoken):
You might as well give up.

Toad (spoken):
This kite will fly, way up into the air!

Birds:
Look up there in the air
I don’t see it anywhere
I guess it must be on the ground
Boo, boo, boo, in the blue
I don’t see a kite, do you?
I wonder where it could be found!
The weather is lovely, sunny and bright
An absolutely perfect day to go outdoors and DRAG a kite!
Way up high in the sky
That piece of junk will never fly
You’ll never get it off the ground!

Toad (spoken):
Frog, I give up. This kite will not fly!

Frog (spoken):
This kite WILL fly!
(sung)
By and by, it’ll fly
We must make another try
No matter what those birds have said
This time though, when you go
Here’s a trick you need to know
Keep the kite above your head!

Toad:
Way up high in the sky
Now this kite is gonna fly
I’m gonna get it off the ground!

Frog (spoken):
That’s right!

Toad (spoken):
I will run and hold the kite above my head, and then you birds will see some real flying!

Lady Bird 1 (spoken):
Oh, we believe you, Toad.

Lady Bird (spoken):
We can’t wait to see some real flying.

Birds:
Holy Smokes, Holy Cow!
He’s really got it flyin’ now!
We thought it might have been a dud
We were wrong, you were right.
That’s a mighty kind of kite!
It’s difficult to fly through MUD!
(they laugh)

Toad (spoken):
Frog, this kite is a piece of junk!

Frog (spoken):
It is NOT a piece of junk!

Birds:
You’ll never get it off the ground!

Frog:
Our kite is a dandy
Superior string
You ran fast and held it high,
But there is just one other thing

Toad (spoken):
What’s that?

Frog (spoken):
While you’re running and holding it high, you must jump and wave your arms!

Toad (spoken):
Very well, Frog. But I’m warning you;
(sung)
This is my final try
This time, if it doesn’t fly
I’m gonna leave it on the ground

Lady Bird 2 (spoken):
Yes Toad, wave your arms. That’ll make all the difference.

Boy Bird (spoken):
I can’t believe he’s gonna try it again!

Lady Bird 1(spoken):
Toad never learns?

Lady Bird 2(spoken):
Hey wait a minute?.Look at that!!

Boy Bird:
Could it be?

Lady Bird 2:
Yup, yup, yup! It looks like it’s

Lady Birds:
Goin’ up!

Birds:
Holy smokes!

Boy Bird (spoken):
Holy cow!

Birds:
He’s really got it flyin’ now!
Oh my gosh! Golly gee!
That looks mighty high to me!
That kite is really flyin!!

Frog and Toad:
Our kite is really flyin’!

All:
That kite is really off the ground!
