Barenaked Ladies Lyrics
23. Crazy ABC's
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? Okay, hang on a second, yeah aisle? Yeah, aisle like a.. like a theatre. Alright, okay, 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 Okay, 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 Okay, 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. Okay, 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"
