The Lyrics

I know you're too old to learn your sight words, but I wrote this song to make kids sing it all the time. If you like it, comment. If you don't like it, don't comment.
I'd like to thank the guy
Who made this word
That is used in every sentence I say
Who put the is in the "Is it o-a-kay?"?
Who put the is in the "Mama is-a-cooking."?
Who put the is in the "Is it time to go?"?
Who put the is in the "Is Joanne asleep?"?
Who was that man?
I'd like to shake his ha-a-and
He made everyone say it out loud.
Yeah!
When I said to Jeff,
"Is Merrell going to the dentist?"
He answered it and he then replied,
"Is is a great word, friend,
Let's say some sentences with it."
And that's how we became obsessed.
So
Who put the is in the "Jerry is okay."?
Who put the is in the "Is it nine o'clock yet?"?
Who put the is in the "Is the song over?"?
Who put the is in the "She is running fast."?
Who was that man?
I'd like to shake his hand.
He made everyone say it out loud.
Yeah!
Each time I try to talk,
Is keeps coming up in something I say,
That's because it's such a short word!
With only two letters,
I and S, combine them together
So it makes the special word Is!
So
Who put the is in the "Is he going home?"?
Who put the is in the "Katie is-a-crying."?
Who put the is in the "It is not okay."?
Who put the is in the "Is it the best word?"?
Who was that man?
I'd like to shake his hand.
He made everyone say it out loud!
Yeah!
(talking) Gilmer, is it fine with you to end the song?
Oh Jeffrey, it sure is fine with me.
Gilmer, you gotta know this is fun being with you.
Yes it is is is. I love the word Is, don't you?
Yes, I do!
(song fades and ends)
