English is a pain!

Rain, reign, rein,

English is a pain.

Although the words

Sound just alike,

The spelling's not the same!

Bee, be, B,

I'd rather climb a tree

Than learn to spell

The same old word,

Not just one way, but three!

Sight, site, cite,

I try with all my might.

No matter which

I finally choose,

It's not the one that's right!

There, their, they're,

Enough to make you swear.

Too many ways

To write one sound,

I just don't think it's fair!

To, two, too,

So what's a kid to do?

I think I'll go

To live on Mars

And leave this mess with ewe!
