Imagine this:

One hundred and twenty-eight Frogs on horseback, riding over the water.
Clogs clatter on wood as the sea creaks and cracks.
As they reach their destination, the Senior Frog cries out 'O La,'
And a Saw Bones looks out, surprised to see these brightly dressed Frogs 
so far from the shore
The year is 1795.
