I was wanting to make a funny song about it for a while, and this is how it turned out.
LYRICS to The Long Word Song:
I’ve been afraid of big long words since I was a kid
I thought that I’d get over it somehow I never did
Usually it’s no big deal but every now and then
You’re audaciously loquacious (ahh!) it kicks in again
I went to a specialist and said what’s wrong with me
Based upon your test results, it’s not hard to see
You’re afraid of lengthy words you’re not the only one
Here’s what your condition’s called but this won’t be much fun
If you’re afraid it’s no big deal, here’s one you should know-a
I’m not even joking, no I kid you not
Though it’s absurd that’s the word I don’t like it a lot
There’s one thing I know for sure so listen if you please
Whoever came up with the word did not have the disease
I was in my science class when I started screaming
It was cuz of a video the teacher was streaming
It was about a lung disease I hope they all get better
But whoever named it gave it way too many letters
I mean really who would name a disease
Not very sensitive to people who have
