Verb Song Lyrics

I'm running, jumping, singing - That's because I am a verb.
I'm hopping, dancing, ringing - That's because I am a verb.
I'm coming, going, hitting, throwing,
humming rowing, sitting, blowing,
riding, hiding, gliding, sliding - because I'm a verb.
I'm a verb, verb, verb, - I'm an action word.
So put me where the action is, 'cause I'm an action word.

Sometimes I use a helping verb to help me make a phrase.
I can use these helping verbs in many different ways.
Like - Will you go? and Should we stay? and May I throw?
and Does he play? and Have you seen it? Did he eat it?
Can we have some more?
I'm a verb, verb, verb - I'm an action word.
So put me where the action is, 'cause I'm an action word.

Sometimes when I am doing something, it is in my head.
The action isn't physical - it's in my mind instead.
Like - thinking, feeling, hoping, dreaming,
looking, resting, moping, scheming,
estimating, calculating and relating too.
I'm a verb, verb, verb - I'm an action word.
So put me where the action is, 'cause I'm an action word.

Sometimes I am a linking verb - a link between two words -
Like shall be, will be, should be, would be, can be and could be.
Linking verbs are commonly the forms of the verb "be."
Like - was and were, is and are, am, being and be.
I'm a verb, verb, verb - I'm an action word.
So put me where the action is, 'cause I'm an action word.
