Mr. Foti had no other way to teach his students.

So he wrote a rap song.

LYRICS:
Didn't think it would come to this
But these are some words
That needed to be spelled correctly

Witness it every day
Won't ever go away
The mistakes that you make today were taught in second grade
English in disarray
I'm here to save the day
Let's get this lesson started without any more delay

Welcome one and all to the spelling bee
When it ends in -ing better drop the E
Take j-u-d-g-i-n-g
Judgeing is not a word best believe you me
And while we're on the topic
Let's take believe
Put the I before the E except after C
B-e-l-i-e-v-e
But if the C is afterwards it remains IE
Also if it makes an A sound it's E
And then the I come after, for example:
Your sister c-o-n-c-e-i-v-e-d
That little bundle of joy, you n-i-e-c-e
She'll w-e-i-g-h e-i-g-h-t
Pounds seven ounces when she comes out of the
V-a-g-i-n-a (That spells vagina)

Seeing the world misspell these things
It hurts me
So I must go and be a spelling nazi

Before we go ahead there are some exceptions
To the IE rule; I know it doesn't make sense
W-e-i-r-d is correct
Think "Weird's a weird word" then move onto the next
Here's a little verse about correct word usage
Y-o-u-r spelling needs work, kid
"You're" only gets the apostrophe
When you mean "you are"--that's guaranteed
Y-o-u-'-r-e
When you confuse the two you spell catastrophe
Speaking of two t-w-o means
The number that comes after one and before three
I'm gonna give an example t-o all of you to see
And maybe then you'll get the gist and then you won't need me

I went t-o the store
I bought t-w-o apples
Forgot one went back for more
Stood in line again like an a**hole
(You can do it t-o-o)
(2x)

Witness it every day
Won't ever go away
The mistakes that you make today were taught in second grade
English in disarray
I'm here to save the day
Let's get this lesson started without any more delay

Yeah listen to the song over if you didn't get it yet
I before E except after C
When you add -ing you better drop that e
Know the difference between your and you're
To, two, too
HOLLA

Today is one year since I posted my first video, so I wanted to do something different. :) Hope you liked it!

Regular video later this week! (The goat needs a vacation too!)

PS To answer your questions, yes, I produced, wrote and vocamalized for this song. Kbye.
