Well, every person you can know
And every place that you can go
And any thing that you can show
You know they're nouns
A noun's a special kind of word
It's any name you ever heard
I find it quite interesting
A noun's a person, place or thing

Oh, I took a train, took a train
To another state
The flora and the fauna that I saw were really great
But when I saw some bandits chasing the train
I was wishing I was back home again
I took a train, took a train
To another state

Well, every person you can know
And every place that you can go
And any thing that you can show

You know they're nouns
You know they're nouns, oh!

Mrs. Jones is a lady on Hudson Street
She sent her dog to bark at my brother and me
We gave her dog a big fat bone
And now he barks at Mrs. Jones
She's a lady who lives on Hudson Street

Well, every person you can know
And every place that you can go
And anything that you can show

Well, you know they're nouns
You know they're nouns, oh!

I took a ferry to the Statue of Liberty
My best friend was waiting there for me
(He took an early ferry)
We went for a walk on the island, you know
And in the middle of summer it started to snow
When I took a ferry to the Statue of Liberty

Well, every person you can know
And every place that you can go
And anything that you can show

Well, you know they're nouns
You know they're nouns, oh!

I put a dime in the drugstore record machine
Oldie-goldies started playing - you know what I mean
I heard Chubby Checker, he was doing the twist
And the Beatles and the Monkees
It goes like this
I put a dime in the drugstore record machine

Well, every person you can know
And every place that you can go
And anything that you can show

Well, you know they're nouns

A noun's a special kind of word
It's any name you ever heard
I find it quite interesting
A noun's a person, place or thing
A noun is a person, place or thing
