The Lyrics

Pronunciation guide: sounds like 'Ahnuld-and-Mureeah' ;-) (Hmm... the wheels are turning...)
I love the sounds of onomatopoeia
-- when a word means exactly how it sounds --
What a delight is onomatopoeia!
Like 'crackle' and 'coo',
and 'burble' and 'boo',
and 'growl'

When something 'zings', you hear it's kind of zippy!
(...soon as you hear it, you just understand...)
And when something goes 'ker-plunk',
you instantly know it's sunk,
Your lexicon au-to-ma-tic'ly expands!

So,
Drown in the sounds of onomatopoeia!
...they make a 'splash', then 'sizzle'...
...then go...

'BLAM'!

Is that it??? I wanted more, Leo...honestly, you could go on and on with this, and I seem to remember the OS being longer. I'd love you to post an extended version, but this was still a 5er....
