I get my thing in action (Verb!)
To be, to sing, to feel, to live (Verb!)
That's what's happening

I put my heart in action (Verb!)
To run, to go, to get, to give (Verb!)
(You're what's happening)

That's where I find satisfaction, yeah! (Yeah!)
To search, to find, to have, to hold
(Verb! To be bold)
When I use my imagination (Verb!)
I think, I plot, I plan, I dream
Turning in towards creation (Verb!)
I make, I write, I dance, I sing
When I'm feeling really active (Verb!)
I run, I ride, I swim, I fly!
Other times when life is easy
(Oh!) I rest, I sleep, I sit, I lie

(Verb! That's what's happening)
I can take a noun and bend it
Give me a noun
(Bat, ball, rake, and plow)
Make it a verb and really send it!
(Show me how)
Oh, I don't know my own power (Verb!)

I get my thing in action (Verb!)
In being (Verb!)
In doing (Verb!)
In saying
A verb expresses action, being, or state of being
A verb makes a statement
Yeah, a verb tells it like it is!

(Verb! That's what's happening)
I can tell you when it's happening
(Past, present, future tense)
Oh! Tell you more about what's happening
(Say it so it makes some sense)
I can tell you who is happening!
(Verb, you're so intense)
Every sentence has a subject
(Noun, person, place, or thing)
Find that subject: where's the action?
(Verb can make a subject sing)
Take the subject: what is it? (What!)
What's done to it? (What!)
What does it say?
(Verb, you're what's happening)

I can question like: what is it?
(Verb, you're so demanding.)
I can order like: go get it!
(Verb, you're so commanding)
When I hit, I need an object
(Verb, hit! Hit the ball!)
When I see, I see the object
(Do you see that furthest wall?)

If you can see it there, put the ball over the fence, man!
Go ahead, yeah, all right
What?! He hit it - it's going, it's going, it's gone!
(What!)

I get my thing in action
(Verb, that's what's happening)
To work (Verb!)
To play (Verb!)
To live (Verb!)
To love (Verb!)
