Lyrics of Word Crimes

Everybody shut up
Everyone listen up
Huh ah huh huh
If you can't write in the proper way
If you don't know how to conjugate
Maybe you flunked that class and maybe now you find that people mock you online
Okay now here's the deal
I'll try to educate ya
Gonna familiarize you with the nomenclature
You'll learn the definitions of nouns and prepositions literacy's your mission
And that's why I think it's a good time to learn some grammar
Now did I stammer?
Work on that grammar
You should know when it's less or it's fewer
Like people who were never raised in a sewer
I hate these word crimes like I could care less
That means you do care at least a little
Don't be a moron you'd better slow down
And use the right pronoun show the world you're no clown
Say you got an IT followed by apostrophe S
Now what does that mean?
You would not use it's in this case as a possessive
It's a contraction
What's a contraction?
Well it's the shortening of a word or a group of words by omission of a sound or letter
Okay now here's some notes syntax you're always mangling
No X in Espresso your participle's danglin'
But I don't want your drama if you really wanna leave out that Oxford comma
Just keep in mind that be see are you
Are words not letters get it together
Use your spellchecker you should never
Write words using numbers unless you're seven
Or your name is Prince
I hate these word crimes
You really need a full-time proofreader you dumb mouth-breather
You should hire some cunning linguist to help you distinguish what is proper English
One thing I ask of you time to learn your homophones is past due
Learn to diagram a sentence too
Always say to whom don't ever say to who
And listen up when I tell you this
I hope you never use quotation marks for emphasis
You finished second grade
I hope you can tell if you're doing good or doing well
Better figure out the difference irony is not coincidence
And I thought that you'd gotten it through your skull
About what's figurative and what's literal
Oh but just now you said
You literally couldn't get out of bed
That really makes me want to literally
Smack a crowbar upside your stupid head
I read your e-mail it's quite apparent your grammar's errant you're incoherent
I saw your blog post it's really fantastic
That was sarcastic 'cos you write like a spastic
I hate these word crimes your prose is dopey
Think you should only write in emoji
You're a lost cause go back to pre-school
Get out of the gene pool try your best to not drool
Never mind I give up
Really now I give up
