Refrain: 
We all know contractions,
We all know the way,
We all know contractions,
This is what we say,

Could not ... Couldn’t, Would not ... Wouldn’t,
Did not ... Didn’t, Should not ... Shouldn’t,
We have ... We’ve, Should have ... Should’ve,
They have ... They’ve, Could have ... Could’ve.

Refrain

Does not ... Doesn’t, Do not ... Don’t,
Was not ... Wasn’t, Will not ... Won’t,
That is ... That’s, He is ... He’s,
What is ... What’s, She is ... She’s.

Refrain

Can not ... Can’t, Have not ... Haven’t,
Is not ... Isn’t, Has not ... Hasn’t,
We will ... We’ll, She will ... She’ll,
They will ...
