Daniel Johnston - Unpack Your Adjectives lyrics

[Verse 1] Got home from camping last spring Saw people, places and things We barely had arrived Friends asked us to describe The people, places and every last thing So we unpacked our adjectives [Verse 2] I unpacked "frustrating" first Reached in and found the word "worst" Then I picked "soggy" and Next I picked "foggy" and Then I was ready to tell them my tale 'Cause I'd unpacked my adjectives [Verse 3] Adjectives are words you use to really describe things Handy words to carry around Days are sunny or they're rainy Boys are dumb or else they're brainy Adjectives can show you which way [Verse 4] Adjectives are often used to help us compare things To say how thin, how fat, how short, how tall Girls who are tall can get taller Boys who are small can get smaller Till one is the tallest And the other's the smallest of all [Verse 5] We hiked along without care Then we ran into a bear He was a scary bear He was a hairy bear We beat a hasty retreat from his lair And described him with adjectives [Bridge] That was one big, ugly bear! You can even make adjectives out of the other parts of speech. All you have to do is tack on an ending like "-ic" or "-ish" or "-ary". For example, this girl can grow up to be a beautiful woman - but still have a girlish face. "Girl" is a noun, but the ending "-ish" makes it an adjective - girlish. That describes the beautiful woman's face, get it? [Outro] Next time you go on a trip Remember this little tip: The minute you get back They'll ask you this and that You can describe people, places and things... Simply unpack your adjectives You can do it with adjectives Tell them 'bout it with adjectives You can shout it with adjectives
