I Ain't Got (A Good Enough Vocabulary)
Song for Building Vocabulary
Fill Your Head®


This song is available on Fill Your Head's® Vocabulary-Building Songs for Older Students.


Lyrics

She's so loquacious, 
tenacious, 
sagacious 
- but not too spacious.

She's inscrutable, beautiful
- it's irrefutable.

Never meek with us, obsequious,
salutary when she speaks with us. 
Munificent,
beneficent, yeah she's magnificent

But she won't go out with me – because 
I ain't got a good enough vocabulary
No-no-no she ain't got time for me – because 
I ain't got a good enough vocabulary

Word -- no rhetoric -- word -- 
She'll often elevate,
elucidate - wish I could get a date -

Felicitous,
solicitous - 
her smile's ubiquitous -

Persistent,
consistent, only somewhat distant - 
un-suspicious, does the dishes,
bet her kisses are delicious.

She's benevolent,
relevant, 
even grandiloquent - 
perceptive,
reflective,
and circumspective

She's imperious, I'm serious
- makes me delirious

But she won’t go out with you because 
I ain’t got a good enough vocabulary

So I been workin' on my definitions, 
   long divisions too,
In case she also needs someone who's good in
    math.
And by reachin' way up - 
for a higher education I’ve been changin'
the trajectory of my path.

Now I'm tenacious,
audacious,
so loquacious - 
I'm magnanimous - plan on this
    - never pusillanimous

But now I won't go out with her - because 
She ain’t got a good enough vocabulary

Now that I understand her she's pernicious,
malicious and
surreptitious - 
nefarious, the scariest, she's Aquarius,
inconsistent,
vitamin deficient

She's dogmatic,
erratic,
idiosyncratic, 
she’s petty and sweaty - like who?
- like your cousin Betty and

You won't go out with her because 
she's got an arbitrary,
elementary, rudimentary,
fundamentally limited voca - bu - lary!

What is up with this word spendthrift?
