Lyrics

Vowels have two sounds each
And they don’t sound the same
One is short (yeah real short)
The other is long and says its name

The short A says A  A  A  A  A  A  APPLE!
The long A says A  A  A  A  A  ACORN!

The short E says E  E  E  E  E  E  ELEPHANT!
The long E says E  E  E  E  E  EAGLE!

The short I says I  I  I  I  I  I  INSECT!
The long I says I  I  I  I  I  ISLAND!

The short O says O  O  O  O  O  O  OSTRICH!
The long O says O  O  O  O  O  OATMEAL!

The short U says U  U  U  U  U  U  UMBRELLA!
The long U says U  U  U  U  U  UNICORN!

Vowels have two sounds each
And they don’t sound the same
One is short (yeah real short)
The other is long and says its name
