The Dictionary Song
Lyrics
If you fell into a dictionary
It might seem very scary
But don't you worry if you do
You just might find you'd learn a new word or two

Well I fell into a dictionary
At first it was very scary
Now I have a different point of view
You see it helped me to learn a new word or two

Words raining down around my head
So many words I've never read
Where have I been
I've never seen
So many words I don't understand
Look at all these words Oh
Look at all these words Oh

Learning a new word is always
Something good to do
Helps you to express yourself and
Get your message through

Falling into a dictionary
Doesn't have to be too scary
Increase your vocabulary
Learning something new

If you fell into a dictionary
It might seem very scary
But don't you worry if you do
You just might find you'd learn a new word or two

Well I fell into my dictionary
At first it was very scary
Now I have a different point of view
You see it helped me to learn a new word or two

Words swirling round and round my brain
So many words I can't explain
Where have I been?
I've never seen
So many words I don't understand

Look at all these words Oh-oh
Look at all these words Oh
