Wait, I clicked "grubs" but now that I think of it, it was "bugs, yum yum." Also, It was five "green and speckled" frogs.

You can re-enter your answers?

Also - oh good, another variant!

"flies", iirc, but this isn't a song I've heard sung in over twenty years.

Have you had a "Row Row Your Boat" variants poll, yet?

I did do a "Row row your boat" one, although it proved a little too abbreviated, so the comments were particularly useful.

Also, the "glub glub" is after they've jumped into a pool, where it was nice and cool.

I definitely remember singing "yum, yum!". We did this at camp, usually with the younger kids.

"green and gloopy frogs, sitting upon a log". My mum was always a bit odd though.

I remember this song as it was on a Raffi record that got a lot of play around my house when I was a boy (Raffi is a Canadian singer and composer of children songs), probably this one. Wikipedia believes the song is itself a traditional tune, it has its own entry and so it undoubtedly has variants (also some lyrics vary in later verses as others have mentioned). So as I remember it Raffi sang it Delicious Grubs Yum Yum, but it could be bugs.
