The Language Police

Teaching Grammatical Concepts
Joe Crone



This song is available on Joe Crone's Geometry Park.

Well how do you do, I’m the language police.
I’m here to tell ya, I’m looking for a gang of thieves.
There’s four of them, let me describe them to you.
So if they come this way, you’ll know just what to do.

Chorus:
Well I’m the Language Police.
And I’m looking for a gang of thieves.
Every noun, adverb, adjective and verb
Knows who I am, I give you my word.

The first one of this gang of whom I’m gonna sing,
Is called a noun, that’s a person, place or thing.
The next one of these guys goes by the name of verb.
I’m sure you know that he’s the action word.

Chorus

The next one on my list of whom I will describe,
Is the adverb, and it’s the verb he modifies.
He tells us more about that action word.
He’s very creative and he spices up the verb.

Chorus

The last one of this gang is smart and kind of wise.
It’s the adjective and it’s the noun he modifies.
He adds detail, that little adjective.
Size, colour, quality, are things he likes to give.

Chorus

Well I suppose you’re wondering just what this gang has done.
They stole the dot from the “i” and now it looks like a one.
Well I know, it’s trivial to you,
But change an “i” to a “1” and you won’t know what to do.

Chorus

And I’m looking for a gang of thieves
Every noun, adverb, adjective and verb
Knows who I am, I give you my word.

Attention! This is the Language Police! You are completely surrounded!
Come out with the dot! I repeat, come out with the dot!
Noun, verb, adjective, adverb, we know you’re in there.
There is no chance of escape. You are to come out with the dot!
I repeat, come out with the dot now!
