Happy New Year!

Happy 2015!

Here at Mr A, Mr C and Mr D Present, we have been busy re-recording, adding new vocal layers and instruments to our literacy songs. All will be revealed in the next few months!

In the meantime, we want to get to 20 songs for each subject and we have song number 19 for our 'Literacy!' album complete.

'Adjectives' is a new song by Mr D and we hope it helps you add more descriptive words to your writing!

Adjectives - Lyrics

Verse
How can I write to make people care?
Keep them hooked and want to share?
Bring words to life and don't despair,
Just take the nouns and add some flare,

A place is a noun, let's say it's the city,
We could say it was bustling or noisy or pretty,
The people are nouns, let's say they were busy,
We could say they were frantic or noisy or dizzy,

The built-up city was quiet and calm,
Broken lights, eerie nights,
Nothing but the fire alarms,
Monster beats, deserted streets,
Zombies shuffling their feet,
Describe the nouns, so come on yeah,
Just take the nouns and add some flare,

Chorus
Magic adjectives,
Describe for me,
Magic adjectives,
From London to N.Y.C.

Verse 2
You got to hip to the hop you just don't stop,
Because we're all headed down to the adjective shop,
Gonna buy me some words, gonna buy me some rhymes,
Describing the nouns, teacher, all of the time,

He had a shoe (what?)
He had hat (what?)
He had some cheese (please!)
Come on, describe them for me  x 2

He had an old shoe (yes!) 
He had a huge hat (yes!)
He had some green cheese ,
Now that's making me pleased x2

Now you're telling me more,
You can hit the dancefloor,
And when the nouns are found,
You're just decribing them all, 

Stop! My phone is ringing. I think I'm getting a call!

" Err, hi Mr D it's just Bertrum here. Can you turn it down please?"

Chorus
Magic adjectives,
Describe for me,
Magic adjectives,
From London to N.Y.C.

Verse 3
A place is a noun, let's say it's the city,
We could say it was bustling or noisy or pretty,
The people are nouns, let's say they were busy,
We could say they were frantic or noisy or dizzy,
Open your mind,
Set words free!

Yeah, I wouldn't worry  too much about that.

Chorus
Magic adjectives,
Describe for me,
Magic adjectives,
From London to N.Y.C.

Now time to see how it's really done! 
A few years ago, Mr D was lucky enough to support INXS at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham with his band. They were classic 80's and 'Adjectives' is inspired by this era and in particular, this band!
