Song For Teaching Grammar - Lyrics and Sound Clip
Kathleen Wiley

This song is available on Kathleen Wiley's English: Sing Your Way to Easy Learning


So what is a metaphor for? A metaphor compares 2 things
Without using like.... without using as...
Metaphors make language sing!!

So what can a metaphor do? A metaphor compares for you
Two things to make interesting language for all to read....
Metaphors compare just 2....

Tom is a brick.... She is a squirt.....
Bill is a tower of strength on the earth...
Ann is a rock... He is a stick...
Mary's an answer to prayer! That was quick!!!

She is a princess.... He is a toad.....
That car's a pile of junk on the road...
That shirt is history.... This book is trash.....
And if you buy it you've wasted your cash...

So here's what a metaphor's for....
A metaphor compares 2 things...
Without using like.... without using as...
Metaphors compare 2 things

So when you are writing anew
A metaphor's waiting for you
Just compare 2 things
And see what life brings
But metaphors seldom are true....!!!!!
Just remember that metaphors seldom are true!!!
