Interjections

(Cough - cough - cough)

When Reginald was home with flu, uh-huh-huh,
The doctor knew just what to do-hoo.
He cured the infection
With one small injection
While Reginald uttered some interjections...

Hey! That smarts!
Ouch! That hurts!
Yow! That's not fair givin' a guy a shot down there!
Interjections!(Hey!) Show excitement(Yow!) or emotion(Ouch!).
They're generally set apart from a sentence by an exclamation point,
or by a comma when the feeling's not as strong.

Though Geraldine played hard to get, uh-huh-huh,
Geraldo knew he'd woo her, ye-het
He showed his affection
Despite her objections
And Geraldine hollered some interjections...
Well! You've got some nerve!
Oh! I've never been so insulted in all my life!
Hey! You're kinda cute!

Interjections!(Well!) Show excitement(Oh!) or emotion(Hey!).
They're generally set apart from a sentence by an exclamation point,
or by a comma when the feeling's not as strong.

So when you're happy (Hooray!)
Or sad (Awww!)
Or frightened (Eeek!)
Or mad (Rats!)
Or excited (Wow!)
Or glad (Hey!)
An interjection starts a sentence right!

The game was tied at seven all, uh-huh-huh,
When Franklin found he had the ba-hall
He made a connection
In the other direction,
And the crowd starting shouting out interjections...

Aw! You threw the wrong way!
Darn! You just lost the game!
Hurray! I'm for the other team!

Interjections!(Aw!) Show excitement(Darn!) or emotion(Hurray!).
They're generally set apart from a sentence by an exclamation point,
or by a comma when the feeling's not as strong.

So when you're happy (Hooray!)
Or sad (Awww!)
Or frightened (Eeek!)

Interjections (Hey!) show excitement (Hey!) or emotion (Hey!).

Interjections!
Show excitement
or emotion!
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah yeah!

Darn, that's the end.
