This is something I’ve wanted to say for a long time. I finally got around to putting it in a song.
Recorded on 3 Feb 2011
4 Feb 2011 — I’ve been working on this song for a few weeks. I have had the title for a while. Although it was originally just something I thought should be said to people. When I decided it should be a song title, I think I was figuring it would turn into something like They Might Be Giants giving a grammar lesson. When I was playing around with chords and singing the line, I started to come up with the other lines that had nothing to do with the first line and weren’t especially jokey. I held it in reserve for a couple of weeks to see how I felt about that. I decided I was okay with it, that I didn’t want to write a comical song about grammar anyway. So here it is.
