Alphabet Lost and Found Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

On this fateful day, in the history of whenever,

An epidemic of missing letters has swept the land.
Whatever the cause, for the sake of future generations,
In the limited time we have been permitted, these stories must be told.

There was an apple that lost his 'a'

There was a zebra that lost his 'z'
There was a chauffeur that left his 'auffer' on the dashboard
Of the car that lost its 'r'
Well, the car had lost its 'r' in a pothole

On a street that lost its 'e'
When the garbage collector with a missing 'ector' swept it up
With a broom that lost its 'oom'

Where they gonna go without their letters?

How could they survive without their letters?
Where they gonna go to find their letters?
They gonna have to get together-

At the alphabet lost and found (alphabet lost and found)
At the alphabet lost and found (alphabet lost and found)

There was a school that lost its 'cool'
when they tired to ring the bell that had no 'l'
With all the letters gone, the spelling bee was canceled
Science teachers had their hands full

English classes could not be complete

Where they gonna go without their letters?
How could they survive without their letters?
Where they gonna go to find their letters?
They gonna have to get together

Where they gonna go without their letters?
How could they survive without their letters?
They gonna have to get together
Where they gonna go to find their letters?

Crowds of people, animals, and incomplete words have been seen at a previously unknown place to be referred to as-

The alphabet lost and found (alphabet lost and found)

At the alphabet lost and found (alphabet lost and found)
At the alphabet lost and found (alphabet lost and found) (how could they survive without their letters)
At the alphabet lost and found (alphabet and lost found) (they gonna have to get together)
At the alphabet lost and found (alphabet and lost found) (they gonna have to get together)
At the alphabet lost and found (alphabet and lost found) (they gonna have to get together)
