Syllable Game

lyrics

Let’s play a game
Counting syllables in your name
Syllables break words down
To the parts with a vowel sound

Three syllables in "Lil’ Ma-ma"
Four syllables in “Da-lai La-ma"
Syllables break words down
To the parts with a vowel sound

Five syllables in "Ba-rack O-ba-ma"
Six syllables in “Wil-mer Val-der-rama"
Syllables break words down
To the parts with a vowel sound

Let’s play a game
Counting syllables in your name

Mike
One syllable
Michael
Two syllables
Michaelangelo
Five syllables
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Eight syllables

Let’s play a game
Counting syllables in your name
Syllables break words down
To the parts with a vowel sound

Three syllables in “Ma-Don-na"
Four syllables in “Ben-i-ha-na"
Syllables break words down
To the parts with a vowel sound

Five syllables in “Vasco da Gama"
Six syllables in “Com-man-der Adama"
Syllables break words down
To the parts with a vowel sound

Let’s play a game
Counting syllables in your name?

Bob one syllable
Sponge Bob
Two syllables
Sponge Bob Square Pants
Four syllables
Sponge Bob Square Pants from Bikini Bottom
Ten syllables

Let’s play a game
Counting syllables in your name
Syllables break words down
To the parts with a vowel sound
