Crazy ABC's Lyrics - Barenaked Ladies
Hey Ed, that sounds nice, what is it?
Thank you, it's a, 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, bdellium?
Yeah, aisle like a, like a theater.
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 everybody 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,
sponsored linksE 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, it's F O H N. It's a, it's a kind of wind.
Yeah. I, 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
K is for knick-knack,
L is for llama
Pramma, llama, ding – what's so strange about llama?
Llama. It starts with two L's.
What's the second one for?
I know. Loser.
M for mnemonic,
N is for ngomo,
O is for ouiga 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 argyle , 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
This was a great help, I think
With 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
Ah, as opposed to B A C H S
Right, think outside the box, get into some Rochmaninov
That's Rochmaninov with a W
