Contraction Connoisseur – Blazer Fresh

This song is all about contractions. What I appreciate most about Blazer Fresh is their fun way of singing and dancing is actually helping students learn and/or reinforce learning. This is a great companion for a lesson about contractions or as part of your music rotation as a way to keep previously learned concepts fresh in their minds. The lyrics are below the video.

Lyrics

Contraction are all that I’m sure you concur
Come on and dance with me I’m a contraction connoisseur
Turn two words into one monsieur
Who are you?, I’m a contraction connoisseur!
There’s always an apostrophe where missing letters were
You know how I know I’m a contraction connoisseur
Poppin this rhyme for my contraction tour
The contraction connoisseur will be your chauffeur!

I am turns to I’m
Would have turns to would’ve
You are turns to you’re
Could have turns to could’ve
Were not turns to weren’t
He is turns to he’s
Are not turns to aren’t
She is turns to she’s

Roses are red, violets are blue
The contraction connoisseur
Says let’s rendezvous

You will turns to you’ll
Will not turns to won’t
You have turns to you’ve
Do not turns to don’t
It not turns to it’s
Is not turns to isn’t
Can not turns to can’t
Did not turns to didn’t
Roses are red, violets are blue
The contraction connoisseur says
I’m feeling deja vu!
The contraction connoisseur says
I’m feeling deja vu!
The contractions connoisseur says
I’m feeling deja vu!

Stop!
Stop
Gotta get back to the bridge

Contractions are made up of two words combined
It’s like the words get together then they unify
They call it that because contract means shrink
It’s shorter than the original words don’t you think
Put the apostrophe in place of missing letters
We loved apostrophe we wrote it on our sweaters!
A-P-S-O-T-R-O-P-H-E

When is turns to when’s
There is turns to there’s
Who is turns to who’s
Where is turns to where’s
Has not turns to hasn’t
She will turns to she’ll
He is turns to he’s
He will turns to he’ll
Contractions are all that I’m sure you concur
Come on and dance with me I’m a contraction connoisseur
Turns two words into one monsieur
Who are you? I’m a contraction connoisseur
There’s always an apostrophe where missing letters were
You know how I know I’m a contraction connoisseur
I hope you enjoyed your contraction tour
Now you too are a contraction connoisseur
