Paint the Way


INTRO

Adjective
Yes, there are times When we are lost
Without a prayer.
You can’t describe
The very things
That are right there.

That’s when you need
A friend like me.
An adjective will set you free.
The world’s my palette
Oui, Merci!

Frenchman
Hold it, stop!
That is the worst accent I’ve ever heard.

Adjective
You’re right!
It is horrible, awful, atrocious --
And many other adjectives, all describing something bad.
But this does not make me blue or sad.
It makes me feel creative and glad.
So let’s sing a beautiful, ridiculous Spring-like song!!!

I love Spring!
It’s so bright and lively!
The only seasons I love as much are Summer, Fall, and Winter.
Life is so wonderful being an adjective.
Look at those nouns having a picnic.
Let’s describe them.

Verse 1

Tina’s kind.
Reggie’s sweet.
Cake’s delish!
Skunks are odiferous!

Nancy’s divine.
Nelson’s neat.
Trees are tall.
I am small
But vociferous!

If her dress is quite ugly, but you know she tries
Use the art of the adjective to get you by
Say: “Your dress is so... interesting.”

Gramma
Thanks!

Adjective
She replies -- You’re so WISE!

Gramma
What a guy!

Chorus 1

The adjective will fill my palette plenty.
Which one? What kind? How much? Describe how many!
The words you think,
The thoughts you say,
Should never let your day go gray.
The world of words will help you paint the way.

Verse 2

But it isn’t just nouns.
There are pronouns I’ve found
Who need adjectives.
They take the place of a noun,
And then they come around
Where the magic lives.

Like that flower!
It’s gorgeous.

Your Grandma!
She’s wise.

Hey Skunk!
You are putrid
And make stinky skies!

Yes Pronouns live like Nouns
But... in disguise!
So let’s modify and describe!

Chorus 2

The adjective will fill my palette plenty.
Which one? What kind? How much? Describe how many!
The words you think
The thoughts you say
Should never let your day go gray.
The world of words will help you paint the way.

Bridge 1

Let’s skip!
(Whistling)

There’s more, of course.
It’s more complex.
I shouldn’t share.
It’s difficult,
Requires big brains.
Kids wouldn’t dare...

There’s demonstrative,
And possessive,
Comparative,
Superlative.
Yet you must live!
So I won’t give you too much to think about, silly children.
For example, I would never tell you...

Bridge 2

Adjectives can be demonstrative - that car, those diamonds.
They can be possessive - my sandwich, her smile.
They can be comparative - yellower than a lemon, even taller than a baby.
Or superlative - the yellowest lemon, the tallest non-baby.
You can use all of those to describe things.
The blue sky, the bluer sky, the bluest sky.
That sky, my sky. Ooh, my my!

Verse 3

Now the articles
Or baby adjectives
They are my little ones.

Articles
Dada!
Mama!

Adjective
They’re so cute.
They are a, the and an.
Aren’t they cute? They say --

Articles
-- WAAA!

Adjectives
Well, they’re... sometimes... fun

Article
(Throws up)
BLAAH!

Adjective
That is gross.
They’re an itch
Or the sky
Or a blackberry pie
Or the craziest, singingest, wordiest guy!
Yes, an adjective raises your thoughts oh so high!
So let’s play in a higher key, fly and describe.

Chorus 3

The adjective will fill my palette plenty.
Which one? What kind? How much? Describe how many!
The words you think
The thoughts you say
Should never let your day go gray.
The world of words will help you paint the way.
Ah, get out your brushes, people!
The adjective describes your brilliant days!
Ah, paint with me!
Without me, love, your world is...

Dull and gray.

What a lovely song!
