Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Dedicated to Mari Duncan, who asked me whether I had done a grammar
song yet. Well, this is it, and I hope your happy. Also to Merry and Pip
for their love of 'postrophes.
Enjoy a lyrical writer's flair
And the way the ends of verses float in air

On occasion I wish they would
Not put "its" for "it's" or, much worse, "their" for "they're"...

This song's about punctuation,
Apostrophes and quotations;
This song's about punctuation,
Examples and illustrations;
This song's about punctuation,
Dots, dashes and exclamations!
This song's about punctuation;
I'm giving you explanations:

(Not lower intestine runs)
What comes out defines what had begun;

Mi colons are grand;
They pinch-hit for the conjunction "and"--

This song's about punctuation,
An Internet education;
This song's about punctuation,
Contextual stimulation;
Start using good punctuation,
Enhancing you presentation!

So, try, try, try,
So try parentheses (if you dare);
So, try, try exclamations!
Try, try hyphen-
Try, try, try......

Try to keep those 'postrophes
And quotations apt, not littered;
Try to keep those 'postrophes
And quotations apt, not littered;
Try to keep those 'postrophes
And quotations apt, not littered;

Good, good, good punctuation!
Good, good, good punctuation!

Dot 'n' dot 'n' et
Dot 'n' dot 'n' et
Dot 'n' dot 'n' et
Dot 'n' dot 'n' et

I feel, honored Bob for you're dedication it. Is also "a" great parody and scan's very well? I also share, your hatred of apostrophe's in the wrong place's.

Okay! Enough is enough! I've been off the site for a couple of days (working too hard) and am glad that Rick told me about this one! It reminds me of the aisle signs in our local Albertsons which say "Can Fruit" and "Can Vegetables." I asked the store manager "Can fruit do what?"

Ricky D: I assume that's why you keep making those mistakes? Thanks, dude.
DeeR: I can't get a thing past you, can I? Yes, intentional, and thanks much.
JD: back at ya for bein' so ready to rock.
Arwen: Oh, please. Having this much fun is because of our English degrees, don't you think? I thank my lucky stars for mine every time I write a parody, a letter, an email, a report, etc.
MariD: And what did he say? "It'll do a lot of things if you proceed to aisle 27 with me...."
Paul R: Thanks, Paul. Spellcheck on the blink?
Pip: You are so welcome!...d;:^)

Eat your heart out, Schoolhouse Rock writers: this one gets to the point without cartoon visuals or crazy backstories. Fives all round!

There's another one of your parodies that, depending on how much you are willing to let into the definition, could be referred to as being about grammar. One of my absolut favorite parodies here BTW, so I'm plugging it for you:

I hope to use this parody to refresh my student in their use of capitalization, and appropriate use of punctuation marks
