The Lyrics

I want to thank Agrimorfee whose OMFG comments gave me the idea for this...
Let’s Turn The Spellcheck On

Things have come to a breaking point,
Your spelling is not so cool
For you like texting and shortcuts
While I am from the old-school
Heaven knows we all make mistakes
A “typo” can be excused...
But I.M.H.O…you’ll have problems to come
Some may think you’re dumb…

You type semetic, and I type Semitic
You type pethetic, and I type pathetic;
semetic, Semitic, pethetic, pathetic,
Let's turn the spellcheck on !

You write “your fare now”, and I write “you’re fair now”
You write “where their now”, and I write “we’re there now”
“your fare now”, “you’re fair now”, “where their now”, “we’re there now”
Let's turn the spellcheck on !

But oh! If you turn the spellcheck on,
Realize, you should.
If you… use a homonym,
It still will do no good !

So, just please watch you’re grammer and I’ll watch your grammar,
Don’t make us think that you’re from Alabama.
I am here to try and help you,
Clarify those bright ideas that you spawn.
Let's turn the spellcheck on !

You spell it looser and I spell it loser,
You’re not a “CAPS” or a paragraph user
Looser, loser,a paragraph user,
Let's turn the spellcheck on !

You could do better when writing a letter,
Please hear the pleading from those who are reading;
Better, letter, pleading, reading,
Let's turn the spellcheck on!

But oh! If you turn the spellcheck on,
Unlike some slob
When you sent your resume
You just might get the job

So, if you think I’m reaching then I’ll stop my teaching
I get the sense that you’re sick of my preaching
O.M.F.G…yes…I.C…now
Using rules of English just makes you scoff ?
Then… turn the spellcheck off !

You're speaking my language here, IB (i.e. as it should be). I detest Leet, and chronic bad spelling and grammar both drive me insane....not that anyone really cares nowadays (Lord, I sound like a fossil!) 555+

P.S. Of all things, In my own piece about spelling, the word "sent" should have been "send"...it was a typo that I didn't catch... My bad
