Watch video here.(scroll down) I wrote this song about figurative language. Here's the lyrics...

I love recess like a dog loves bones
That’s a simile - that old boat sank like a stone
Similes compare two things using like or as
She ran like a deer, she ran real fast

My brother is a bear every morning
That's a metaphor meaning he’s grouchy without warning
Metaphors compare two things without like or as
That man was a mountain you could not pass

Mary made mulberry muffins
That’s alliteration, like Karen kept crushin’
Don’t judge a book by it’s cover
That’s a idiom, a wise sayin’ you’ll discover

I'm grounded for a thousand years
A hyperbole, big exaggeration, but I feel the fear
So if I don't clean my room, and get it together
I'll be doin' hard time and feel under the weather

My friend said pardon me after squishin’ my toe
That’s a onomatopoeia son as I groaned oh no
When the word is spelled like it sounds
A dog went bow-wow once the bone was found

The thunder grumbled like an old man
That’s personification as the rain slapped the land
When you give non-human things human qualities
When the wind howls, growls and beats up the trees

So you know imagery is vivid descriptions
Grabs our senses, love this curious condition
Like the time I worked on a dinner cruise boat
I was the chef’s assistant, wore a chef’s hat, chef’s coat
After dinner, everyone’s dancing as I leaned on the door
Until a lady in red led me out on the floor
Life was firing on all cylinders, even with the stained shirt
I smelled like dinner, but danced like dessert

So, when it comes down to it…..you have to know what these are
All of this is figurative language or imagery, driving this car
When you read, these are the phrases that get your attention
And when you write, paint a picture with your words before you’re done
Here’s a list of my lessons, children's books, videos and cartoons.
