THE DECLENSION SONG (Lyrics)

Declension one we learn to sing
-a -ae –ae –am –ā
Plurals too have got to ring
-ae –ārum –īs –ās –īs

Declension two makes quite a sound
-us –ī – ō –um –ō
Plurals help to bring it ‘round




ī –ōrum īs –ōs –īs




Neuter nouns will look the same
As subjects and as objects
Plural neuters end in –a
Look at oppida

Declension three is not so tough
Blank –is –ī –em –e
Sing it soft or sing it rough




-ēs –um –ibus –ēs –ibus

Neuter nouns will look the same
As subjects and as objects
Plural neuters end in –a
Look at nōmina
Look at nōmina (2x)
