Verse 1:
Well we‘re sitting around a table trying to make a deal
But the dealers left last night
And we’re not sure what we want but we’re singing a song,
Trying to make it right
And all the people shout singing work it out
Cause we have to get things done
Stand up and be counted before we have to run

Chorus:
There’s a turtle and a frog and a cat and a dog
And the sky is oh so blue
And I don’t know who I am but I know where I stand
And I’m standing in front of you
What can I do? What can I do? What can I do? What can I do?

Verse 2:
Well the cards are all dealt, nothing is wild
The decisions are up to you
Please don’t take my job, I’ve been working hard
Trying to see it through
And my wife and child mean so much to me
That I’d like to tell you
Stand up and be counted that’s all we have to do

Chorus:
There’s a turtle and a frog and a cat and a dog
And the sky is oh so blue
And I don’t know who I am but I know where I stand
And I’m standing in front of you
What can you do? What can you do? What can you do? What can you do?

Verse 3:
Well our friendship is strong and we can’t let it change
No matter what we do
But the money is tight, unemployment high
And that my friend is true
And we all want to win giving nothing away
Before the song is through
Stand up and be counted that’s all you have to do

Chorus:
There’s a turtle and a frog and a cat and a dog
And the sky is oh so blue
And I don’t know who I am but I know where I stand
And I’m standing in front of you
What can we do? What can we do? What can we do? What can we do?

Verse 4:
They say you give an inch then they’ll take a mile
Before the dream comes true
So hold on to your hand and lay down your cards
The joker and the fool
Do we understand what they’re trying to say
They’re telling me and you
Stand up and be counted that’s all you have to do

Chorus:
There’s a turtle and a frog and a cat and a dog
And the sky is oh so blue
And I don’t know who I am but I know where I stand
And I’m standing in front of you
What can I do? What can you do? What can we do? What can I do?

Page InfoOld Tape Recordings is a collection of old cassette tape recordings of family and friends mostly done in the early 1980s' (some more recent) when there were no smart phones or tablets and, movie cameras and other recording devices were for the rich and famous. 

These analog recordings were made using an inexpensive portable "boom box" cassette tape deck. All songs have been converted to MP3 format without enhancements or effects of any kind. As you can imagine, the quality is poor, but these unrehearsed, spontaneous and off-the-cuff audio clips bring back some fond memories for me. They put a smile on my face every time I hear to them.
