Grammar: Nouns, Adjectives, Verbs, Adverbs (song)

This song’s all about nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs. It is by far my most (only?) successful video to date* and it goes by the name of

The Word-Type Song

Karaoke Backing Track

Special thanks to Mr Fahey and the pupils of Redlands Community Primary School, Leicestershire, for the idea to make a backing track.


A noun is the name of a person, place or thing

Like Mike in Morecambe with a ball of string.

An adjective describes a noun

Like a big, wide smile on a painted clown.

Verbs, verbs are doing words,

They move and fly like the birds;

Like in running and jumping,

You might add an –ing,

Or they can hop or dance or sing.

Adverbs like to add to a verb,

They tell you more about a word.

You often have an –ly on the end

Like slowly walk or quickly bend.

*At the time of writing, this video has had 30,493 views on YouTube – not tonnes, I know, but it’s not too shabby by my standards! Thanks to everyone who has viewed, liked and commented on this video to date; it’s much appreciated. :)

  1. The Kids in my class absolutely love this song … they have the word types on the tip of their tongues when I ask them what a noun, adjective, verb or adverb is. So, a big THANK YOU for this gem of creative genius!
