Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs Here

All Songs for Artist









 The classics keep coming


 ^sh Ready Pop, yep, ready son, uh-huh, let’s go, let’s go
Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, get your adverbs here, Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, got some adverbs here
Come on down to Lolly's, get the adverbs here
You're going to need if you write or read or even think about it

Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, get your adverbs here, got a lot of Lolly, jolly adverbs here
Anything you need and we can make it absolutely clear

An adverb is a word (that's all it is, and there's a lot of 'em)
That modifies a verb (sometimes a verb, sometimes)
It modifies an adjective, or else another adverb
And so you see that it's positively, very, very, necessary

Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, get your adverbs here, Father, son and Lolly selling adverbs here
Got a lot of adverbs and we make it clear, so come to Lolly

(Hello, folks, this is Lolly Senior, saying we have every adverb in the book
So come on down and look!)
(Hello, folks. Lolly Junior here, suppose your house needs painting.
How are you going to paint it? That's where the adverb comes in.
We can also give you a special intensifier so you can paint it very neatly or rather sloppily)
(Hi. Suppose you're going nut-gathering. Your buddy wants to know
where and when. Use an adverb and tell him.)
Get your adverb

Use it with an adjective, it says much more
Anything described can be described some more
Anything you'd ever need is in the store
And so you choose very carefully every word you use

Use it with a verb it tells us how you did
Where it happened, where you're going, where you've been
Use it with another adverb at the end, and even more
How, where, or when, condition or reason
These questions are answered when you use an adverb, come and get it

Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, get your adverbs here, quickly, quickly, quickly, get your adverbs here
Slowly surely really, learn your adverbs here
You're going need 'em if you read 'em, if you write or talk or think about it

Lolly, if it's an adverb, we have it at Lolly's
Bring along your old adjectives too, like slow, soft and sure
We'll fit them out with our "l-y" attachment
And make perfectly good adverbs out of them

Get your adverbs here
Lots of good tricks at Lolly's, so come on down
Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, adverbs deal with manner, place, time
Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, condition, reason
Father Son and Lolly, comparison, contrast
Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, enrich your language with adverbs
Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, besides, they're absolutely free
Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, at your service, indubitably
