Noun Song - A Noun is a person, place or thing
(Grammar Rock Nouns )

Well every person you can know,
And every place that you can go,
And anything that you can show,
You know they're nouns.
A noun's a special kind of word,
It's any name you ever heard,
I find it quite interesting,
A noun's a person, place, or thing.

Oh I took a train, took a train to another state.
The flora and the fauna that I saw were really great.
When I saw some bandits chasin' the train.
I was wishin' I was back home again.
I took a train, took a train to another state.

Well, every person you can know (Like a bandit or an engineer)
And every place that you can go (Like a state or a home)
And anything that you can show (Like animals and plants or a train)
You know they're nouns - you know they're nouns, oh...

I took a ferry to the Statue of Liberty.
My best friend was waitin' there for me. (He took an early ferry.)
We went for a walk on the island you know,
And in the middle of summer it started to snow,
When I took a ferry to the Statue of Liberty.

Well every person you can know (Like a friend or the captain of a ship)
And every place that you can go (An island or a sea)
And anything that you can show (Like a statue, a ferry, or snow)
You know they're nouns - you know they're nouns.

Oh, I put a dime in the drugstore record machine.
Oldies goldies started playing if you know what I mean.
I heard Chubby Checker, he was doin' the twist
And the Beatles and the Monkees, it goes like this!
I put a dime in the drugstore record machine.

Well every person you can know (The Beatles and the Monkees, Chubby Checker)
And every place that you can go (Like a neighborhood or a store)
And anything that you can show (Like a dime or a record machine)
You know they're nouns.

On the planet, a place you visit
It could be anywhere, any location
It’s all the places you can go and the places you have been

Places like classroom, the moon, anywhere in space
Wherever you are, let’s make some noise in this place

It’s an object or an item
It could be anything, anything
It’s something you can find and the ideas in your mind

Ideas like love, joy and peace
If you know a person, place or thing, sing it with me.
The Noun Song

Nouns, just nouns.
Not adjectives or articles
just nouns.
A person or a thing
A cabbage or a king
The things we like to sing about
are nouns!


 
Noun Song from Grammaropolis - "Noun Town"
Distinguish between Common Nouns and Proper Nouns

Lyrics:

VERSE 1

Nouns! Step right up and show me what you got for me this morning
I give common sounds to common nouns, I try to give 'em names unboring
That's an ostrich -- next!
That's a toy store -- next!
That's a snorkel -- next!
That's a -- Seriously? Mt. Rushmore?
How'd you even get that in here?
That's a proper noun -- Next!

A common noun names a general person, place, thing, or idea.
A proper noun names an actual person, place, thing, or idea.

Common nouns
Make 'em sound
Common nouns
All around

A lady -- who?
A planet -- zoom!
Volcano -- boom!
Declaration -- Woo hoo!

And proper nouns
Make 'em sound
Proper nouns
Let's get down with

Lucy, Mars, Krakatoa
And the Declaration Of Independence

CHORUS 1

Noun Town
What's that sound?
A person, place or thing is found in
Noun Town
So profound
Name ideas, mess around with
Who is that guy?
What is that thing?
What is that place?
I'll name and you sing

'Cause I'm a noun noun noun noun
Noun noun noun noun Noun

VERSE 2

Announcer: Now serving concrete and abstract nouns...

I suppose you want me to explain what those are.
Listen up, I'm only sayin' this once

A concrete noun is somethin' I believe I oughtta mention
A concrete noun is somethin' you perceive with your five senses

You can see -- the beach!
You can hear -- the drums!
You can taste -- a peach!
You can smell -- rotten eggs!
Yuck! -- better not eat those now
Or you can touch a concrete noun

An abstract noun's a complicated nounified idea
You simply cannot hear or taste or smell or touch or see an

Abstract noun
What's that sound?
Well it ain't an abstract noun
Examples please
Yes sirree
An abstract noun could always be:

Love, honor, loyalty, friendship, hatred
That's not very nice
Well, abstract nouns can add some spice
Now we'll sing the Chorus twice

ANNOUNCER:
Are you a lonely Noun? Looking to mix it up with other Nouns?
Then you'll LOVE becoming a Compound Noun!
Dial this number now...

Compound nouns are fun to make in clear or stormy weather
You take more than one noun and you simply smash 'em all together

Like a knucklehead -- Check!
Or a shortcake -- Yeah!
Or an eggplant -- Yek!
Or a bellyache -- Waa!

Or a bellyflop, windshield
Football, ironman
Jack-o'-lantern, horseshoe
Grasshopper, suntan

Collective nouns are groups of things I'll help you understand
A family or assembly or Doctor Noize's Band

A flock of seagulls with a gaggle of geese
A team of players or a squad of police
A pod of whales beside a school of sharks
I saw a pride of lions chase an armory of aardvarks

Aardvarks?
Aardvarks
Seriously, I did
I saw 'em in the dark
On a lark in the park

Collective nouns
They're all around
And compound nouns
Now let's get down in...
