Gary Miller Songs

"As a song poet there are few in the world today to match him"
Green Man Review, USA


A, B, C



You landless horses have you heard

The power of the written word

By making clear what once was blurred

I’ll raise you up above the herd

Like you I come from poverty

But grammar brought me liberty

Now with my grand repository

I’ll break your chains of slavery

Pronounce with me

These words you see

It’s as easy as A, B, C

My alphabet will set you free

It’s as easy as A, B, C

Rhyme and rhythm and repetition

Real reading made easy by definition

It’s my passion, it’s my mission

All it needs is your permission

Believe in me

And you will see

It’s as easy as A, B, C

Our language offers mastery 

It’s as easy as A, B, C

So when you escape your desert isle

Spread the word through rank and file

The Spensonian Method is worthwhile

In teaching through phonetic style

Who needs elocutionists

Wordsmiths or philologists

For your mother tongue she now insists

You can all be cunning linguists

Come read with me

To your own degree

It’s as easy as A, B, C

Words and sounds in recipe

It’s as easy as A, B, C

Say after me

“I will be free”

It’s as easy as A, B, C

Knowledge is power, just turn the key

It’s as easy as A, B, C
