Conjunction Junction, what's your function?
Hooking up words, phrases and clauses.
Conjunction Junction, how's that function?
I got three favorite cars
That get most of my job done.
Conjunction Junction, what's their function?
I got 'and' - 'but' - 'or'
They'll get you pretty far.

And: That's an additive, like "this 'and' that."
But: That's sort of the opposite,
"Not this 'but' that."
And then there's 'or' o-r,
when you have a choice like
"This 'or' that."
'And' - 'but' - 'or'
They get you pretty far.

Conjunction Junction, what's your function?
Hooking up two boxcars, making 'em run right.
Milk and honey; bread and butter; peas and rice;
Hey that's nice!
Dirty but happy, digging and scratching,
Losing your shoe and a button or two.
He's poor but honest, sad but true,
Boo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!

Conjunction Junction, what's your function?
Hooking up two cars to one
When you've got something like this choice:
"Either now or later"
Or no choice:
"Neither now nor ever"
Hey that's clever!
Eat this or that, grow thin or fat,
I'll bet you that's as skinny as it is!

Conjunction Junction, what's your function?
Hooking up words and phrases that balance like:
"Out of the frying pan and into the fire."
He cut loose the sandbags,
But the balloon wouldn't go any higher.
Let's go up to the mountains,
Or down to the sea.
You should always say "thank you,"
Or at least say "please."

Conjunction Junction, what's your function?
Hooking up words and phrases and clauses
In complex sentences like:
"Early in the mornings when I'm usually wide awake,
I love to take a walk through the gardens and down by the lake,
Where I often encounter a duck and a drake,
And I ask myself as I walk by
Just what they'd say if they could speak,
Although I know that's an absurd thought."

Conjunction Junction, what's your function?
Hooking up words, phrases and clauses.
Conjunction Junction, how's that function?
I like tying up cars, making 'em run right.
Conjunction Junction, what's your function?
I'm going to get you there if you're very careful.

Conjunction Junction...
(repeat 6x, fading)
