Lawrence frog stepped on the street

Hands in the air feet tapping to the beat

Stepped right up in front of the band

Changed the groove when he dropped his hand

 

Used to wear the army greens

Now he dances on the street in New Orleans

Used to where outrageous clothes, personal friend of Madame Laveau

If you give him a dollar my friend, he'll show you where to take your queen

If you give him a cigarette, he'll show you some things you ainít never seen

 

He turned around and he looked at me

Then he pointed to the girls on the balcony

Looked over his shoulder and slipped me grin

Showed me the wages that come of sin

 

Used to smoke the kindest green

Now he dances on the street in New Orleans

Used to see outrageous shows, personal friend of Madame Laveau

If you give him a dollar my friend, he'll show you where to take your queen

If you give him a cigarette, he'll show you some things you ainít never seen

 

Lawrence Frog don't pay no rent

Frog man he ain't broke he's spent

Lawrence Frog he pass the time

Talkin' trash and drinkin' wine
