Lesson 15: Learn about English verbs with this cool song!

This is a "Grammar Rock" lesson that is faster and more "upbeat" than the Adjectives Song in Lesson 14. The full text is below with comments.

I get my thing in action. ("my thing" means "my enjoyment" or "my excitement")
To be, to see, to feel, to live.
I put my heart in action.
To run, to go, to get, to give.

That's where I find satisfaction.
To search, to find,
to have, to hold. ("to have and to hold" is said during a wedding ceremony)

When I use my imagination,
I think, I fly, I plan, I dream.
Turning in, towards creation.
I make, I write,
I dance, I sing.

When I'm feeling really active,
I run, I ride, I swim, I fly.
Other times, when life is easy,
I rest, I sit, I sleep, I lie.

I can take a noun and bend it - give me a noun!
Make it a verb and really send it!

I don't know my own power!
I get my thing in action,
in being, in doing, in saying.

A verb expresses action,
a feeling, or a state of being.

A verb tells it like it is! ("to tell it like it is" means "to tell the truth")

I can tell you when it's happening.
Tell you more about what's happening.

I can tell you who is happening.
Hey! Every sentence has a subject.
Find that subject, where's the action?

Take a subject, what is it?
What's done to it?
What does it say?

I can question like, "What is it?".

I can order like, "What is it?".

When I hit, I need an object.
When I see, I see the object.
If you can see it, then
put the ball over the fence, Man! (hitting the ball over the fence is a "home run" in baseball, which is the easiest way to score.)
Go ahead on, yeah all right.

What? He hit it!
It's going, it's going, it's gone. What?

I get my thing in action.
To work, to play, to live, to loooooooooooooooove!!!
