Kiss That Frog

Postcrossing card from Russia by Lidia, referring to the fairytale of the Frog Prince. It reminded me of Peter Gabriel's song Kiss That Frog (from the album Us, 1992).
I liked the album a lot at the time, but if I listen to the lyrics of Kiss That Frog today, I know that I missed out on some of the ambiguous meaning then. Or, come to think of it, it's not ambiguous, it's really quite distinct:

"Don't you know that this tongue can kill? ..."

By the way, the video won the award for "Best Special Effects" at the MTV Video Music Awards in 1994.
