Farley: Same Sound Fround, could you help me out?

Same Sound Fround: Farley, my man, I'll do what I can.

Farley: I'm trying to read this word, but I'm not having much luck.

Same Sound Fround: (?) learning to read.

(singing)

I start at the front and I move to the rear.
And I say each sound out loud and clear.
I go, "MMMM, AAAA, NNNN!"
I go, "MMMM, AAAA, NNNN!"
Then I run the sounds together and smooth 'em out.
And that's what reading's all about!
I go, "MMMM, AAAA, NNNN!"
I go, "MMMM, AAAA, NNNN!
MMMM, AN
MMMM, AN,
MAN!"

(speaking)

Okay, I'm done. Now you try one.

Farley (singing):
I start at the front and I move to the rear.
And I say each sound out loud and clear.
I go, "FFFF, UUUU, NNNN!"
I go, "FFFF, UUUU, NNNN!"
Then I run the sounds together and smooth 'em out.
And that's what reading's all about!
I go, "FFFF, UUUU, NNNN!"
I go, "FFFF, UUUU, NNNN!"
FFFF, UN
FFFF, UN,
FUN!"

(The last part is spoken.)

Farley: Hey, I did it! It's fun!

Same Sound Fround: Now, stick with me and I'll take you far, 'cause Same Sound Fround's gonna make you a star!

Farley: Outta sight!

Same Sound Fround: I could read all night! (They exit.)
