I remember my dad singing this song to us when we were kids all the time. I also recall a time when he and his sister, my Aunt Rita, started singing it together, and then they laughed like little kids.

I searched for the lyrics and found this translation on Bravenet.com in the Cajun Accordion Discussion Group

Jump, toad
Your tail will burn up
But take courage
It will grow back out

Go on, toad

Winter's coming in

Jump, toad
Your tail will burn up
Put (pour) dear Pauline
A cup of coffee

Oh, toad
Who is it that made your vest?
It's Rose Martin,
Mama's girl
