THE HEARTS GO THUMP, THUMP TOGETHER, TRUE LOVE FOREVER,
BRING BACK MY LOVE TO ME.
WHAT IS THE ME ME MEANING, OF ALL THIS HE HE HEART ACHE,
THEY TELL MY ST STORY, MY STORY OF LOVE FROM ME TO YOU.
THE SPADES GO SMACK, SMACK TOGETHER, TWILIGHT FOREVER,
BRING BACK MY LOVE TO ME.
WHAT IS THE ME ME MEANING, OF ALL THESE GR GR GRAVEYARDS,
THEY TELL MY ST STORY, MY STORY OF LOVE FROM ME TO YOU.
THE GUNS GO BANG, BANG TOGETHER, SPARKS FLY FOREVER,
BRING BACK YOUR LOVE TO ME.
WHAT IS THE ME ME MEANING, OF ALL THIS BL BL BLOODSHED,
IT TELLS MY ST STORY, MY STORY OF LOVE FROM ME TO YOU.
THIS SONG ALSO HAS GESTURES THAT GO ALONG WITH EACH VERSE.
THE FIRST VERSE IS ABOUT HEARTS, SO AS IT IS SUNG, YOU MAKE FISTS
WITH YOUR HANDS AND CLAP THEM TOGETHER.
AS THE SECOND VERSE IS SUNG YOU CLAP YOUR HAND FOR THE SPADES.
IN THE LAST VERSE, TO IMITATE THE GUNS, YOU PUT YOUR
FIRST TWO FINGERS TOGETHER ON EACH HAND AND CLAP.

Submitter comment: I SUPPOSE THIS COULD BE CALLED A STUTTERING SONG.
