Everybody shut up Everyone listen up! 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 on-line (Everybody wise up!) 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 (What!?) 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 Everybody wise up! 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 (no no no) It's a contraction (yeah yeah yeah) What's a contraction? Well, it's a 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 spell-checker You should never Write words using numbers Unless you're seven Or your name is Prince Everybody wise up! I hate these word crimes (I hate them crimes) You really need a (I hate them crimes) Full-time proofreader (I mean those crimes) You dumb mouth-breather Well, you should hire Some cunning linguist To help you distinguish What is proper English Everybody wise up! 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 Everybody wise up! You'd better figure out the difference Irony is not coincidence And I thought that you'd gotten it through your skull What's figurative and what's literal Oh but just now you said You literally couldn't get out of bed (What!?) That really makes me want to literally Smack a crowbar upside your stupid head Everybody wise up! I read your e-mail It's quite apparent Your grammar's errant You're incoherent Saw your blog post It's really fantastic That was sarcastic (Oh, psych!) 'Cause you write like a spastic I hate these word crimes Everybody wise up! Your prose is dopey Think you should only Write in emoji Oh, 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 Go away!

literally 1) in a literal sense or manner : actually 2) in effect : virtually literally, adv. 1c. colloq. Used to indicate that some (freq. conventional) metaphorical or hyperbolical expression is to be taken in the strongest admissible sense: "virtually, as good as"; (also) "completely, utterly, absolutely."  —Oxford English Dictionary, 3rd edition, Sept. 2011 literally, adv. … 3.b. Used as an intensive before a figurative expression.  The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th edition, 2016 literally, adverb … 2.

the Oxford comma is 100% OK. And 'whom' is dead. And 'literally' doesn't have to literally mean 'literally'. The meanings of words change.

As a self-professed grammar nerd, I adore this song. However, what never fails to amuse me is that The Weird One himself *commits a Word Crime in it*. "Try your best to not drool" is a split infinitive. Sometimes exceptions are made for those - but not for negative words such as "not" or "never." You can try NOT TO do something, but you can't try TO NOT do something. This has been your incredibly pedantic Grammar Tip of the Day™.

“Get out of the gene pool” pretty much means that you should never find love or have kids for the possibility that you’re ignorance would be passed down through the generations until most of the population deals with it. Wow.
HappyConstructor (3 days ago)
Soulfien well... ok but you know what I meant
Soulfien (4 days ago)
Finding love has nothing to do with having kids. You can fall in love without having kids and you can have kids without falling in love. The two are exclusive. You can even have kids with someone with whom you're not in love at the same time you're in love with someone with whom you're not having kids.

somthing i noticed about some people on internet when they are wrong they bash you on your grammar (saying you can t be right cause your english writing isnt perfect (even if english isnt you'r first language try to correct their lies about somthing (example about transgender or gay people ect if they dont accept what you write you will get bash on yoru gramar saying that cause you dont write properly in english you too dumb to know what you are talking about (yet my first language is french so its normal its not perfect ) so much heck about that
Carl Girard (4 days ago)
+Soulfien the truth is its more when people are worng and want to be right they try to discredit your post by claiming you cant be inteligent cause your english isnt 100% perfect it doesnt mather if english is your 2nd language yoru dumb if your not thinkin their wrong way
Carl Girard (4 days ago)
Soulfien not at all
Soulfien (4 days ago)
Actually, when people do that, it's usually because the other person called them an idiot. You should never call someone an idiot when you write like you do.

Possessive apostrophes are perfectly acceptable English though.
John Smith (4 days ago)
+Soulfien While that's true (and I appreciate that the song is mostly joking) it does imply that apostrophes are only used for contractions.

Not in the word "its."

Oxford comma is now nessicary in the current curriculum. Get wrecked Al.
Soulfien (4 days ago)
You forgot the comma before Al. If you're talking to someone, you must use a comma. If you're talking about someone, then the comma must be left out. "Shall we go to the store, Al?" "Al went to the store." "Al, let's go to the store." "I went to the store with Al."

This song gives me so much nostalgia,, I was on a vacation back in Summer 2014 and heard about Weird Al over the news and asked my dad about him who told me a little as he was a fan and then told me to google his music. As we were riding to lunch, I listened to all of his songs including this one and became obsessed. I listened to this song and most of the others every single day for the rest of the year and in 2015 I saw him in concert. Weird Al is such an amazing human and an inspiration to everyone! 💖💖💖
