"Rappin' Grammar"

 Rappin' Grammar

A noun is a person, place, or thin:
like guy or school or playground swing.

A pronoun is a sub for nouns: like I and we,
him and he, she, her, it, them, they, you, me.

An adjective describes those two:
which one?  what kind?   how many?  whose?

A verb is an action or being kind of thing:
eat, walk, were, be, shout, and sing.

An adverb gives more information:
how?  when?  where?  why?  That's this part's definition.

Prepositions pull nouns into a phrase:
in, on, under, with, around, above, hey!

Conjunctions connect words, phrases, or clauses:
if, also, but, since, for, as, because.

And interjections -- Yes!  Wow!  Yo!
Strong feelings are what they let you know!

So now that we have this rhymin' rap,
Parts of speech will be a snap!

Note:   "Hey!" as in the preposition stanza is an interjection!
