Subject: RE: new ditty from CapriUni: Broken Alphabet
By the way -- shortly after I made the video for "Albaphet snog," my brain decided it was a good idea to keep me awake by ear-worming the alphabet to every nursery rhyme tune of comparable length that it knew (amusing for the first ten minutes...).

So I decided to make another video with five of the tunes compiled together -- on a scale from simple to complex:

Alternate Alphabet Songs

The melodies are:

Row, Row, Row Your Boat:

A B C D E
F G H I J
K-L-M
N-O-P
Q-R-S
T-U-V
W X Y Z

Frere Jacques:

A B C D
E F G H
I J K
L M N
O P Q R S T
U V W U X
Y and Z.
That's the end.

Eensy-weensy Spider:

A B C D E F
G H I J K
L M N O P Q
R S T U V
and W
and X and Y and Z;
If I sing this tomorrow,
Will you sing it with me?

Three Blind Mice:

Same as above, but I changed the end so it could work as a stand-alone version, to:

"That's twenty-six letters for you and for me, in the ABCs!"

Yankee Doodle:

A B C D E F G H
I J K L M N
O P Q
R S T U
V W X Y Z

Now I know my Alphabet --
It really is quite dandy!
And should I need a Dic-tion-ar-y,
It will come in handy!
