Settle down class, now you've passed
Your grade one pyramid selling,
Yeah the time has come for me to drum
Some facts into you about spelling

It seems to me your ABC
Skills are less than terrific
So buck up boys as we master the joys
Of the lovely hieroglyphic

Everyone needs their ABC
It's as simple as Vulture, Foot, Basket
You all know how to sing do-ray-mi
Easy to spell it's, Hand, Eye-thingy, Owl

ABC, Vulture Foot Basket
Do Ray Mi, Hand Eye-thingy owl

You'll pass with ease and
Find it's a breeze
The rules are scientific

Don't have to be smart
All you do is start with simple
Phonetic glyphics
Next you get, two letters- a set
Morphenes, called logographics
Finally third, the form of a word, determinatives

Horrific!

Everyone needs their flamingo house sun
It's simple- but sun can mean duck everyone
You all know how to write your name

Except for me:
Tutan-nefertiti-khamen!

Flamingo house sun, Means duck to some
Tutan-nefertiti-khamen
...Lets leave that one

If you find it hard, don't be afraid
To go and ask your mummy for aid
Now it's time for a spelling bee
That's not how you spell bee, see me.
Foot reed reed, easy...

Cat pig dog, rat duck frog
Make your spelling magnific
You can go up and down, left and right
And around - no punctuation in hieroglyphics

ABC, DEFG, just 700 characters or so
Now that's done lets have some fun
With numbers here we go!

Everyone needs their 1 2 3
It's as simple as eye, eye-eye, eye-eye-eye

You can all count to ninety-nine
Easy to write, it's hoop hoop hoop hoop hoop hoop hoop hoop hoop
Eye-eye-eye eye-eye-eye eye-eye-eye

1 2 3 - eye, eye-eye, eye-eye-eye
99 - hoop hoop hoop hoop hoop hoop hoop
Eye-eye-eye eye-eye-eye eye-eye-eye

Basket?
