Words are hard to make fit
You change and alter things so it works
Words like iridescent

Who would ever use the word incipient?
When would the word baleful ever work?
Words are hard to make fit

If you can use these words well then aren’t you full of wit
Maybe that guy over there can, I think his name’s Kirk
Words like iridescent

Trying to make words fit is like falling into an icy pit
They sneak up on you like a spy doing undercover work
Words are hard to make fit

Fitting in words is like having no banana on your banana split
If you don’t use them people think you’re a piece of work
Words like iridescent

It’s like a baleful adolescent
Well this is better that being a desk clerk
Words are hard to make fit
Words like iridescent
