Hey Steve, hey Ed, that sounds nice, what is it?

Thank you, it's a, it's an alphabet song I'm working on

Oh great, a whole new alphabet, I just learned the old one



A is for aisle, B is for bdellium, C is for czar

And if you see him would you mind telling him?



Okay, hang on a second, yeah aisle, bdellium?

Yeah, aisle like a, like a theater, alright, okay and bdellium?

Bdellium, it's a gum like tree resin, it starts with a silent B

And then czar? Yeah, it's uh like a Russian czar



You know everybody knows apple, ball and cat

I wanted to get into some, you know some stranger words

Right, I see what you're doing



D is for djinn, E for Euphrates

F is for fohn, but not like when I call the ladies



I thought phone started with a P like a Ph

No, it's F O H N, it's a, it's a kind of wind

Yeah, I know what you mean by wind



G for gnarly, I for irk, H is for hour

J for jalapeA+os, good in either corn or flour

Tortillas, let us rhyme



K is for knick knack, L is for llama

Pramma, llama, ding, what's so strange about llama?

Llama, it starts with two L's, what's the second one for?

No idea, I know loser



N for neumonic, M is for mdomo, O is for ouiga board

P for pneumonia, pterodactyl and psychosis, Q is for qat



Okay, Q qat? What? Yeah, it's uh Q A T, it's an evergreen shrub

It's a perfect scrabble word because it's a Q with no U

There's not many of those, you have too much time on your hands



R is for argyle , no it isn't

Okay, you're right, I couldn't find a good R word

S is for SzA?r, a lovely German river

T for tsunami, a wave that makes me quiver



U is for urn, but not like earning money

V for vraisemblance from French and therefore kind of funny



W for wren, wrinkly and who

X is for Xian, an ancient Chinese city, true

Ancient Chinese city, huh? My guitar player, some hotshot



Y is for yiperite, a very nasty gas

And zed's the final letter and by final I mean last



Okay, when you say zed for the benefit of our American friends

You really mean Z, right?

No, I mean zed, like, like Zed Zed Top, Zed Zed Top?



Yeah, you know the guys with the big long beards

Well, except the guy whose name is Beard, he has a mustache

I always thought that was interesting



You done with the alphabet?

No, extra letters I haven't heard of? I think so

This was a great help, I think

With the contribution you made to world literacy



Well, I'm just saying, kids I'm just saying

Think outside the box a little bit, box with an R

Yeah, well, no box with a B A L K S like a pitcher

Ah, as opposed to B A C H S



Right, think outside the box, get into some Rochmaninov

That's Rochmaninov with a W
