Verb Song
I'm running, jumping, singing - that's because I am a verb.
I'm hopping, dancing, ringing - that's because I am a verb.
I'm coming, going, hitting, throwing,
Humming, rowing, sitting, blowing,
Riding, hiding, gliding, sliding -
Because I'm a verb.
I'm a verb, verb, verb - I'm an action word.
So put me where the action is 'cause I'm an action word.
 
Sometimes I use a helping verb to help me make a phrase.
I can use these helping verbs in many different ways.
Like - Will you go? and Should we stay?
And May I throw? and Does he play?
And Have you seen it?  Did he eat it?  Can we have some more?
I'm a verb, verb, verb - I'm an action word.
So put me where the action is 'cause I'm an action word.
 
Sometimes when I am doing something, it is in my head.
The action isn't physical, it's in my mind instead.
Like thinking, feeling, hoping, dreaming,
Looking, resting, moping, scheming,
Estimating, calculating and relating too.
I'm a verb, verb, verb - I'm an action word.
So put me where the action is 'cause I'm an action word.
 
Sometimes I am a linking verb - a link between two words -
Like shall be, will be, should be, would be, can be and could be.
Linking verbs are commonly the forms of the verb "be".
Like was and were, is and are, am, being and be -
I'm a verb, verb, verb - I'm an action word.
So put me where the action is 'cause I'm an action word.
