LIMERICK SONG LYRICS
Hello! How are you? I’m Nick. Here to teach you a fun little trick. To have a good time when writing a rhyme try writing your own limerick!
There are limericks of all different kinds. So how do you write one that shines? You’ll see that it’s cool if you follow the rule: a limerick is made of five lines.
So listen close to this song. Lines one, two and five are all long. And in poems of this sort make lines three and four short and I promise you’ll never go wrong.
You need to be sure and contrive to rhyme lines one, two, and five Then do it once more with lines three and four and your limerick surely will thrive!
So let these pointers take hold And if you’ll write as you were told at the rainbow’s end you’ll find there my friend your own limerick pot o' gold!
