The Lyrics

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

Great work on a fun idea, Alvin, that renders me utterly unable to resist including here the full text of a news report quoted (sans attribution, alas) in an email I received this morning :

Obama’s Use of Complete Sentences Stirs Controversy

Stunning Break with Last Eight Years

In the first two weeks since the election, President-elect Barack Obama has broken with a tradition established over the past eight years through his controversial use of complete sentences, political observers say.
Millions of Americans who watched Mr. Obama's appearance on CBS' "Sixty Minutes" on Sunday witnessed the president-elect's unorthodox verbal tick, which had Mr. Obama employing grammatically correct sentences virtually every time he opened his mouth.
But Mr. Obama's decision to use complete sentences in his public pronouncements carries with it certain risks, since after the last eight years many Americans may find his odd speaking style jarring.
According to presidential historian Davis Logsdon of the University of Minnesota, some Americans might find it "alienating" to have a President who speaks English as if it were his first language.
"Every time Obama opens his mouth, his subjects and verbs are in agreement," says Mr. Logsdon. "If he keeps it up, he is running the risk of sounding like an elitist." The historian said that if Mr. Obama insists on using complete sentences in his speeches, the public may find itself saying, "Okay, subject, predicate, subject predicate - we get it, stop showing off."
The President-elect's stubborn insistence on using complete sentences has already attracted a rebuke from one of his harshest critics, Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska. "Talking with complete sentences there and also too talking in a way that ordinary Americans like Joe the Plumber and Tito the Builder can't really do there, I think needing to do that isn't tapping into what Americans are needing also," she said.

This here parody gots to be the best one you wrote! Takes me back to English class. My bro sometimes comes up with his own language or slang terms. For example at the comp, he types "prolly" for probably. I'm always impressed by his speech and I pick that up quite occasionally. That's also how I learned his term "Cheersage"!

For some reason I was reminded of John Prescott while reading this (possibly the only politician who makes GWB seem positively eloquent). :-D
