you say i got no elocution
well, ya knows
i just got a way with words
vocabulary's lilliputian
well, ya knows
i can turn a phrase, absurd
i'll show a sentence's construction
the diagram will really knock you out

and my grammar's gonna be...alright
and my grammar's gonna be...alright
and my grammar's gonna be...alright

you say i treat the language gruesome
well, ya knows
when i squawk, you'll understand
a negative combined in twosomes
well, ya knows
you best avoid that, if ya can
cause if you talk funny at people, they'll set you straight
if syntax, in error, you flub up, they'll educate

cause your grammar's gotta be...alright
cause your grammar's gotta be...alright
cause your grammar's gotta be...alright

just shuttin' up is one solution
well, ya knows
just keep your words inside your head
some participles cause confusion
well, ya knows
you just might dangle them instead
cause failin' linguistics is something that ain't allowed
when making a statement, construct it so you'll be proud

cause your grammar's gotta be...alright
cause your grammar's gotta be...alright
cause your grammar's gotta be...alright

alright
alright
alright
alright
alright
alright
alright
