That Salome Frog. I'm Seven Years Old and I Cannot Swim So don't Blame Me for Looking Grim. When a Frog has to Carry a Big Canteen And Water his Back to Keep it Green And Prime Himself if he Wants to Cry When his Belly gets Burned with Alkali Where Grass Grows Brown instead of Green A Frog Can't Help but Feeling Mean I'm an Old Bull Frog - and Dang My Hide I Can't Swim Because I never Tried. The Salome Frog made famous by Dick Wick Hall was not, as many think a myth. His relatives live dormant beneath the surface of the desert around Salome. When rain falls in this district they come to the surface to soak themselves in the water but seldom find enough for a swim.
