G, Bm, C, Dx
Bm, E, A, D

G			     Bm
Life is unfair, so they tell me,
C			      G
Because they think I wouldn't know.
C			  G
They only can see a cheap gimmick
	 A		      D
On their children's favorite show.

	   Bm			      Em
They say, "Oh, that's just foam and a wire,
Bm			   Em
Attached to a green velvet sleeve,
C			     G
Anyone can do that" -- well, that's true, I suppose,
    A			     G-D
But who else could make them believe? 

G		       Bm
What can I say without you there to guide me?
C			  G
How else am I supposed to give?
C		       Bm
How can I sing without you there beside me?
A			     D
How else am I supposed to live?

Bm				Em
You could never just do the expected,
C			 G (Full)
I was just an idea in a bog,
	C		  D	   Em		A
But you sewed up your dream and we made quite a team,
     	A	  D	      G  C  G
Jim and Kermit, a boy and his frog. 

       Bm                        Em
It was me, Rolph, and you, but I think that he knew
	  C			   G
There was something that you and I had.
    C		       G-Em
The magic we made just kept growing,
    A			G-D
And none of it ever was bad.

	  Bm			Em
Then came Ernie and Scooter and Gonzo,
       Bm			  E
Doctor Teeth, Cookie Monster, and more.
  	C			Bm
But now all of those voices are silent,
	A			 D
And I want to go on... but what for? 

G			Bm
No one can make me what you did,
C			  G
No one could walk in your shoes,
C		    G (Full)
Nothing can make me forget you,
    A			       G-D	
But that's not a path that I'd choose.

Bm		       Em
I can't just let it be over,
Bm			      Em
And you wouldn't want it that way,
	C		  G (full)
So I'll stand up and I'll face it,
	    A				  D
And, though not quite in your voice, I'll say: 

G		     Bm
I will go on without you there to guide me,
C			   G
There's so much more I can give.
    C		 Bm
Whenever I sing, you will be there beside me,
   A				 D
As long as I keep you, you'll live.

	Bm		      Em
We just wanted to make people happy,
      C				 G
I was always much more than your toy.
       C	D	Em	      A
I will never regret and I'll never forget
What we had,
I'll miss you, Dad,
		   C-Bm-C-G-D-G (Full)
This frog and his boy.
