"Bossy R" Song to learn the sounds of vowels with R
When he's with E or I or U they must say "er."
(If you know what I mean)
And when they bow to him they say
"Your Highness, Sir".
The A must always say the kingly name of "R."
(To please the king)
Whenever they are riding in the royal car.
The O must open up its mouth and sing out "OR."
(The tones he'll sing)
And if the king is please he'll have to sing some more.
