Lyrics

Spelling

Once a child hears about a sweet treat
It becomes the only thing they want to eat
You can't get it out of their head
Certain words are prohibited
If one slips out, just admit de feat.

My mother in law's a teacher by trade
She spells all the livelong day
But she hasn't mastered the technique
Of what to spell and not to speak
It tends to lead dinner plans astray.

(CHORUS)
She says there's cookies in the j-a- r.
Or a b-o -x of candy bars.
She'll say gum but spell bubble
D-e-s-s-e-r- t
There'll be double dutch chocolate fudge ice cream.
She stirs up a whole lot of trouble.

She makes us jump over hurdles and fences
When she spells out complete and run on sentences
She thinks she's really fooling them
When she spells m and m
I wish she had some common senses

Her choice of words can be pretty bad
One time I got real mad
When she spelled
d-i-s-c-o-n- t-e-n- t-e-d
I mean couldn't she just spell sad.

(CHORUS)
