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!
