Lyrics

With so much drama in the 4, 5, 6
I’ll droppa comma in a sentence like a ton of bricks
There’s alotta instances when I gotta use one
BLAZER FRESH is here to eliminate the comma blues son.

I use a comma, i use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I use one!

I USE A COMMA to separate three or more words in a list.

I’m maxin, relaxin’, and cool. You get the gist?

I USE A COMMA after introductory words, such as yes and well:

Yes, I am wearing cologne. How can you tell?

I USE A COMMA to separate adjectives, 2 or more
I’ll droppa comma in a sentence like a ton of bricks
There’s alotta instances when I gotta use one
Blazer Fresh is here to eliminate the comma blues son.

Arnstar is a charming, fun fellow on the dance floor.

I USE A COMMA before a conjunction to join independent clauses.

I like enormous words, and I like pauses.

With so much drama in the 4, 5, 6
I use a comma, i use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I would use a comma

I USE A COMMA on either side of an appositive.

Xavier, the optimist, is always so positive.

I USE A COMMA when I address someone, it helps us understand:

Excuse me, Rasheem, when you raise the roof, put up your hands!

I USE A COMMA between the name of a city and its state:

San Francisco, California, has’s got this bridge—- the Golden Gate!

I USE A COMMA when I quote:

She said, “I only hike up mountains with my mountain goat.”

I USE A COMMA when I write the date between the day and year:

January 1, 1735. Happy birthday, PAUL REVERE!

With so much drama in the 4, 5, 6
I’ll droppa comma in a sentence like a TON OF BRICKS
There’s alotta instances when I gotta use one
Blazer Fresh is here to eliminate the comma blues son.

I use a comma, i use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma…

Hold the applause! You can also use a comma after a dependent clause!
Ohhhhh

When I watch movies, I like to eat seaweed.

When I make smoothies, I put in tons of flax seeds.

While you were out, all I thought about was commas.

When spring break comes, I wanna go to the Bahamas!

With so much drama in the 4, 5, 6
I’ll droppa comma in a sentence like a TON OF BRICKS
There’s alotta instances when I gotta use one
Blazer Fresh is here to eliminate the comma blues son.

I use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma, I use a comma…
