Hey Steve!
Hey Ed, that sounds nice, what is it?
Thank you, it's an alphabet song I'm working on
Oh great, a whole new alphabet,
I just learned the old one.

A is for aisle
B is for bdellium
C is for czar
And if you see him, would you mind telling him

OK, hang on a second, yeah aisle?
Yeah, aisle like a, like a theatre.
Alright, OK, and bdellium?
Bdellium, it's a gum like tree resin, it starts with a silent B
And then czar?
Yeah, it's uh- like a Russian czar.
You know, everyone knows apple ball and cat,
I wanted to get into some you know,
Some stranger words.
Right, I see what you're doing.

D is for djinn
E for Euphrates
F is for fohn, but not like when I call the ladies

I thought phone started with a "p"...like a "ph"
No its f-o-h-n, it's a kind of wind
Yeah, I know what you mean by wind

G for Gnarly,
I for irk
H is for hour
J for jalapeño
Good in either corn or flour (tortillas)
Nice rhyme
K is for knick-knack
L is for llama
Pramma, llama, ding

What's so strange about llama?
Llama, its starts with two L's
What's the second one for?
No idea.
I know, loser.

M for mnemonic
N is for ngomo
O is for ouija board
P for pneumonia, pterodactyl and psychosis
Q is for qat

OK, Q, qat? What?
Yeah it's uh...q-a-t,
It's an evergreen shrub
It's a perfect scrabble word because it's a q with no u,
There's not many of those
You have too much time on your hands.

R is for R-gyle
No, it isn't

OK, you're right; I couldn't find a good "r" word

S is for Saar, a lovely German river
T for tsunami, a wave that makes me quiver
U is for urn, but not like earning money
V for vraisemblance from French,
And therefore kind of funny
W for wren, wrinkly, and who.
X is for Xian, an ancient Chinese city, true!

Ancient Chinese city, huh?
My guitar player, some hotshot.

Y is for yperite, a very nasty gas.
And zed's the final letter
And by final, I mean last.

OK, when you say zed,
For the benefit of our American friends
You really mean Z, right?
No I mean Zed, like, like Zed Zed Top.
Zed Zed Top?
Yeah, you know the guys with the big long beards,
Well, except the guy whose name is Beard,
He has a mustache
I always thought that was interesting
You done with the alphabet?
No extra letters I haven't heard of?
I think so.
Well this was a great help, I think, you know,
The contribution you made to world literacy
Well, I'm just saying, kids
I'm just saying
Think outside the box a little bit
Box with an "r"
Yeah, well, no, box with a b-a-l-k-s, like a pitcher.
Ahh, as opposed to b-a-c-h-s,
Right, think outside the "balks"

    General CommentIt's pretty obvious that this song is about unconventional spelling/pronunciation of words....but it's so funny. This is one of my favorites on Snacktime, because it's made grammar funny and interesting. The Zed Zed Top bit had my husband rolling.
