Lyrics to learn
When trying to express oneself it’s frankly quite absurd,
To leaf through lengthy lexicons to find the perfect word,
A little spontaneity keeps conversation keen,
You need to find a way to say precisely what you mean.
Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious,
If you say it loud enough you’ll always sound precocious,
Um diddle iddle iddle um diddle ay (x4)
When stone age men were chatting simply grunting would suffice,
Though if they’d heard this word they might have used it once or twice,
I’m sure the Roman Empire only entered the abyss,
Because those Latin scholars never had a word like this.
If you say it softy the effect can be hypnotious,
Check your breath before you speak in case it’s halitocious,
