CapriUni new ditty from CapriUni: Broken Alphabet (27) RE: new ditty from CapriUni: Broken Alphabet 19 Jul 12


Well, since I last posted here, I have acquired a microphone, and learned the basics of Movie Maker... So now the video I mentioned is up, here: The Albaphet Snog.

I've also been tweaking the letter-order in the second verse (I realized that Q and U should really be together, and I think I found a more comfortable spot for poor W (a triple syllable letter in a single syllable world).

A transcript (For those who can't watch videos, for whatever reason):

Slow Zoom, silent title: "The Albaphet Snog"

First verse to the so-called "real tune" to the Alphabet Song:

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

I can't tell you what went wrong.
Someone scrambled up this song!

Silent title: "If at first you don't succeed..."

Second verse, also to the "real tune:"

A B C D
Z X Y
J K L & G H I
M N O P E & F
Q & U & T R S
W and last comes V!
Why you shake your head at me?

Silent title: Third time's a charm (I hope?)

Third Verse, to the "wrong tune" Three Blind Mice:

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

Hey, I got it right! HOORAY for ME!
My ABCs!

Silent Title: "You know what? I need a nap. I'll see you later."
