ABC-DEFGHI-JKL-MNOP-QRSTUV-WXYZ

It's the most remarkable word I've ever seen.

ABC-DEFGHI-JKL-MNOP-QRSTUV-WXYZ

I sure wish I knew exactly what I mean.

It starts out like an "A" word as anyone can see.

But somewhere in the middle, it gets awfully "QR" to me.

ABC-DEFGHI-JKL-MNOP-QRSTUV-WXYZ

If I ever find out just what this word can mean,

I'll be the smartest bird the world has ever seen.

(Maybe Gordon would know, or maybe Bob. I could ask them. Then again)

It might be kind of an elephant or a funny kinda kazoo.

Or a strange, exotic turtle that ya never see in a zoo.

It might be a kind of doggie or a particular shade of blue.

Or maybe a pretty flower.

(Nah, not with a name like that. Uh-uh.)
