The Lyrics

English is such a funny language
Two mouse are mice, two louse are lice!
Are two house "HICE?" Are two douse "DICE?"
Why is Dyslexic hard to spell?
And Acquiesce is bad as well!

Spell "on-om-a-to-po-e-ia"
Then "a-na-tom-ic-a-lly" Yeah
On a spell test, Ukulele!
Kick you in the Cocc-yx!


For a tonic, spell MNEMONIC
When you're done-ic, try Pneumonic
Why does "Silver" have no Rhyme-r?
Why "Re-Member" without "member"?

And et cetera
if you hate me
Don't lambaste me


Is plen-ti-tude a vaid word?
and is it Curd, Chord, Cored or Kurd?
And here's a valid Soccer score:
East Fife fired 5 to ForFar's 4.

Why is the word for "Verb" a noun?
How is it I can think aloud?
Try spell pis-ta-ch-io, you nut!
This line is shorter-


Is a "COLONEL" still a KERNEL?
How's Min-u-scule, Spelled at U'r Scule?
British sched-ules, are call SHED-ules
What are sept-ua-gen-ar-i-ans?

Make a dai-quiri
Spell Chi-an-ti!


And why is separate one word?
Are silent letters ever heard?
i-an-is-m's the longest word

Why does Phonetic have P-H?
pare pairs of pears for goodness sake
If words are too sub-stan-ti-ate
Why don't you try abb-rev.-


Spell mis-chiev-ous, you big loser!
Suck man-eu-ver Though your hoover!
Some Mis-og-gy-nis-tic linguist
Kick him in the Ding-a-ling-guist!

What a freekee!
Just how Bogus
It's hiscarious
And it's Jickly
It's dramastic
And it's tickly

It's so absane
I can't take it
It's ad-min-is-

Oh, and I don't know if there is a longer word that antidisestablishmentarianism, can anyone think of one? Interdenominationalisation is a little shorter. There must be a longer one, come on!!!

This is too brilliant for words, Laurence. Just SO clever, with hilarious rhymes, etc many 5's as you want, dude!! BTW, floccipaucinihilipilification: "the act of attributing no monetary worth to an object" beats your big boy by 1 letter..:-)

Excellent job on our undeniably twisted language.
For a longer word, I'd suggest you check out this...­ml

Brilliant! I'm envious.

A parody for us word-geeks, with great pacing and clever rhymes to boot. At least it's not so hard to spell "fives".... :-)
Phil Alexander - January 23, 2005 - Report this comment
Excellent, Laurence :-) There's plenty of words longer than antidisestablishmentarianism... take the following lung disease, for example: pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis - I reckon you'd end up with water on the lungs just trying to say it ;-)

absolutely sensational - what an OS too - and getting "antidis.....ism" into a parody without upsetting the pacing is a unique feat I'm betting - 555

Thanks all for your comments. Phil, thanks for pointing out the word pneu-mo-no-ul-tra-mic-ro-scop-ic-sil-ic-o-vol-can-o-con-i-o-sis. I hope I never get this disease. "Laurence, why can't you breathe well?" "Oh, bill, thanks for noticing (cough) i've got (sputter) a case of (wheeze) pneu-mo-no (cackle cackle )-ul-tra (cough) -mic-ro- (hang on I need a breath) scop-ic (pfft, that's not related to my lung disease) -sil-ic-o-(BURP) vol-can-o-(wheeze) con-i-o-sis" [Laurence drops dead]

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant, Laurence! It's obvious you've worked hard. Stuart, I've 'antied' in one of mine:

Now I see what everyone's on about; great work Laurence.

Great parody, brilliant word-play. 5's all around. William F. Buckley would be pleased indeed.
