Punctuation Rap
How to Use Punctuation
Earth Tone Enterprises


This song is available on Earth Tone's Mind Games


Chorus:
Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna say?
If you don't know punctuation.
Punctuation marks - they make your writing smart
And keep your meaning clear in any situation

Periods are first on our list of punctuation marks
They end every sentence before a new one starts
(and) if you're using numbers in a list or outline
put one after every number and you will be fine

Next up is the question mark It's a period with a curl on top
Use it after every question that you write down
Sometimes in Spanish it's upside down

The punctuation mark that we use the most is called a comma 
and that is no joke
If you have to list several things in a row use a comma to help keep your flow
For example: 
"I had bacon <comma> eggs <comma> cereal <comma> and juice for breakfast <period>.

Use commas in your address to separate the street from the city and the city from the state
and also when you write dates like January second, two thousand and eight

Phrases and words that describe different terms are set off by commas, now listen and learn
"Music <comma> a collection of sounds <comma> is the way we get down."

Two related ideas hooked together by a comma are called a compound sentence, no need for drama

"Punctuation confused me for a long time, but now it's easy 'cause I learned this rhyme!"

Chorus:
Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna say?
If you don't know punctuation.
Punctuation marks - they make your writing smart
And keep your meaning clear in any situation

An exclamation point expresses strong feeling, like excitement
when somebody is screaming

Enclose the words of a speaker in quotation marks
They tell you when the talking stops and starts...

When you have to break a word into two syllables...

Compound words are also linked with a hyphen...

Often it's cool to make two words into one
an apostrophe gets the job done...

Chorus:
Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna say?
If you don't know punctuation.
Punctuation marks - they make your writing smart
And keep your meaning clear in any situation

There are situations when you need to show possession...

And that's using punctuation 
This is the stuff you've got to know if your writing's gonna flow
So take your time and learn this rhyme
and keep hitting the books
We'll be back with more raw hooks
