ALPHABET ANATOMY RAP
Letters are more than what you see in Alphabet Anatomy
Come take a look now – have you heard
They do much more than make a word
I’ll introduce you to the crew; you’ll be surprised at all they do.
Letter A is absolute that apples are her favorite fruit.
Behind the barb is letter B – basting burgers blissfully.
Caring for cats makes letter C – compassionate; how cool is she.
D’s the dude who does the diving; his dalmatian does high-fiving.
Escapades enchant indeed, and E helps out with every need.
Letter F has muscles bulging; fitness is what he’s indulging.
Ghosts and goblins fill each story; letter G is in his glory.
In hops H on stilts so tall; harmonicas are such a ball.
I’s ingenious from his reading – if there’s a crime he’s interceding.
Jubilees with joyous jumpin’ – that’s how letter J keeps pumpin’.
K’s from Kansas, her kite’s flying – really high; it’s mesmerizing.
L is marching ladybugs, lizards too; they cut some rugs.
Mountains are magnificent – letter M, that’s where he went.
N’s a ninja, he’s nocturnal, and nutrition tops his journal.
Optimistic O is sweet; obstacles are obsolete.
Patriotic parrot’s singing; perfect pizza P is bringing.
Q’s been quiet for a while; questions used to make him smile.
Royal root-beer floats abound – for each rock that R has found.
On a scooter squeaky clean, S’s sash is sparkly green.
Tree house tall with every trimming; T has fun surprises brimming.
Underwater U is finding – is where he likes best unwinding.
View the village, front and center – V makes sure no villains enter.
Welcome tots, come have a whirl – W’s a wild girl.
Exing out brings X such pleasure – in exasperating measure.
Y gives thanks in her front yard – and doing yoga isn’t hard.
At the zoo all beasts are booming – letter Z does daily grooming.
Learning your letters is easily done
Exploring their lives is a whole lot of fun.
