1. Kissing in Kamacha

Frog Prince or Toxic Toad?
It started with a kiss, and ended with a kill. 
It was against the royal decree, you see. 
“Enough of this frivolity”, he croaked. 
Hop onto that other lily pad, and let me be. 


You think I’m the frog prince. 
But I am the poisonous toad of Kamacha
And with just one kiss I will kill.

13. Raindrops never lie

If your heart is full of pain
And you just need to cry
Go for a walk in the rain
As raindrops never lie

Hide your teardrops
Amidst the raindrops 
Feel better bye and bye
As raindrops never lie 

Hail hurts
Snow soaks
Wind whistles
Sun sizzles
But raindrops never lie

The grey skies will clear 
The clouds will disappear 
The sun will shine on high
But raindrops never lie 

Whenever you are sad
Or when things get really bad
Remember it’s just life
Don’t put up with the strife 
Splash on through the puddles 
And remember that raindrops never lie
