Welcome to Grammaropolis


Doctor Noize
This is not that song!
So please don’t sing along! Hey!

Action verbs are great words always making sure they’re heard
They animate the eyes on your face
And when they’re feeling transitive they hang out with the nouns as is
And energize a person or place

Linking verbs are sidekicks givin’ action verbs tips
Usually a form of “to be.”
She says that “I’m a mellow yellow Cinderellow, not to say I’m jello --
Nothin’s really botherin’ me.

Well here’s a Noun that I’ve found on this grammar ground
Wrapped around a person, place or a thing.
He likes to follow the verb or adjective word.
Don’t mess around with the nouns, ‘cause they name everything.
Oh now everybuddy sing...

Welcome to Grammaropolis.
It’s such a tough metropolis.
I think I am the awfulest.
At Grammaropolis! Hey!
Oh grammar! Good grammar!
Oh grammar! Good grammar!
Oh grammar! Good grammar!
Grammaropolis!

I’m lovely, I’m bubbly, I’m kind and cuddly.
I modify a pronoun or noun.
What kind? Which one? How many? How much?
An adjective is very profound.

How, when, where, to what extent, under what condition
Will you tolerate the tone of an adverb?
Adjectives and verbs and other adverbs say I’m bossy
But an adverb isn’t really a bad word.

They call me preposition ‘cause I’m pre-positioned
To populate the start of a phrase.
I got the map and the compass and I’ll kick your verbal rumpus
Into super high gear, lead you everyplace.
Hey, I say...

Welcome to Grammaropolis.
It’s such a tough metropolis.
I think I am the awfulest.
At Grammaropolis! Hey!
Oh grammar! Good grammar!
Oh grammar! Good grammar!
Oh grammar! Good grammar!
Grammaropolis!

Gramma
Thank you for writing a song about me, Dear!

Doctor Noize
Gramma, it’s not Gramma-opolis…

Gramma
Oh?

Doctor Noize
It’s Grammaropolis!

Gramma
Oh!

Doctor Noize
If it were Gramma-opolis, it would sound like this:
Oh, they’re floating Grammas
They’re floating Grammas, and they’re lovely as can be.

Gramma
Thank you, dear.

Doctor Noize
They’re floating Grammas
They’re floating Grammas,

Doctor Noize & Gramma
But this is not that song!
So please don’t sing along!

Doctor Noize
Pronouns confound, throw the nouns in the Lost & Found
They take their place, they’re hangin’ around
An antecedent gives ‘em freedom, so you’ll know ‘em when you read ‘em
Otherwise there’s chaos in town
We’ll do it for half what nouns normally charge…

Who’s normal? What’s normal?
Who’s normal? How normal?

Gather ‘round, join in, when we’re together we all win.
A little middle riddle am I.
Conjunctions are a junction with a function, no compunction or dysfunction
Joining words and word groups, oh my!

And when it’s “Hey!” “Say!” “Wow!” Pow!” -- do not have a cow
Interjections are emotional birds!
And Mr. Slang rang words absurd, don’t tell Mom you used that word
Slang is when a poopee becomes a tur—

Gramma
Don’t say that!

Doctor Noize
Sorry…

Gramma
I’ll pretend I never heard.

Doctor Noize
Thank you, Gramma!

Welcome to Grammaropolis.
It’s such a tough metropolis.
I think I am the awfulest.
At Grammaropolis! Hey!
Oh grammar! Good grammar!
Oh grammar! Good grammar!
This is not that song!?!
Grammaropolis!

Gramma
Come give your gramma a kiss.
