The Lyrics

I've seen my first name misspelled everywhere for years--on mailing labels, government forms, friends' letters. Most usually, the mistake is some variant of "Ingabord" or worse yet, "Inga Bird"--and though an honest mistake is nothing to bite heads off over, I wish it didn't happen quite so often...
G, not D--
oh, that's how elementary
it ought to be
c'mon, please spell it right, it's easy (oh so easy)
Don't tell me "Scandi" (Swedish, that's "Scandi")
spelling's crazy

Wrong darn key
(Wrong darn key)
Fixing a spelling goof is
easy for me (easy for me)
And you can do it too, it's easy (oh so easy)
Backspace is handy (backspace is handy)
Try it, maybe

Baby, there's nothing hard about it
I-N-G-E, then B-O-R-G
The last part's like Star Trek, don't doubt it
Without typos, that's how it should be

[mostly instrumental, with background vocalists repeating "G, not D"]

It's easy (oh so easy)
Don't tell me "Scandi" (Swedish, that's "Scandi")
spelling's crazy

Odd to some, it's true (Odd to some, it's true)--
what if a typo like that
happened to you (happened to you)?
Though there's no spite, mistakes are easy (oh so easy)
Backspace is handy (backspace is handy)
Try it, maybe


G, not D--
oh, that's how elementary
it ought to be
c'mon, please spell it right, it's easy (G, not D)

[fade]

Should be elementary
