The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee Song Lyrics


ANNOUNCER (spoken)
Ms. Peretti, please spell syzygy.
MS. PERETTI (spoken)
S-y-z-y-g-y. Syzygy?
ANNOUNCER (spoken)
We have a winner!
MS. PERETTI (spoken)
Haha! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
CHIP
At the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
My parents keep on telling me
Just being here is winning
Although, I know it isn't so
MS. PERETTI
But it's a very nice, very, very nice
MS. PERETTI, CHIP
Very, very nice
Very nice
Beginning!
MS. PERETTI (spoken)
Our winner here last year, Chip Tolentino.
LOGAINNE (spoken)
Ms. Peretti!
MS. PERETTI (spoken)
And our youngest competitor, Logainne Schwartzandgrubenierre.
LEAF
At the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Game - Bee
I'll stand when they announce my name
MS. PERETTI (spoken)
Leaf Coneybear
LEAF
And try and keep from shaking
LOGAINNE
Alas
His shaking will not pass
ALL
'Cause it's a very big, very fraught
Simple but it's not
It's a very big undertaking
MS. PERETTI (spoken)
Returning from last year's tragic setback, William Barfee!
WILLIAM (spoken)
It's pronounced Barfee; there's an accent aigu!
MS. PERETTI (spoken)
Uh, I'm not sure who this girl is...
MARCY (spoken)
Marcy Park, recent transfer.
LOGAINNE
Winner's destination
Washington, D.C.
SPELLERS
Plasma t.v. in a fancey hotel
Where they treat you well
All because you love to spell
We spell!
MS. PERETTI
It's a marvelous memory
If you win the spelling bee
One's life improves from A to Z
The minute you are crowned here
I see a trophy held by me
And the one I want
Did I swell?
Oh the stories I could tell
But bragarts
Don't do well around here
OLIVE (spoken)
Hi, I'm Olive Ostrovsky
Do you know where I check in?
WILLIAM (spoken)
Shut up!
LEAF
At the 25th Annual
We memorize the manual
SPELLERS
About how to spell these words
Words that require thought
People think we're
Automatons
But that is exactly what we're
Not
MARCY
We hear the word
LOGAINNE
We breathe
LEAF
We wait
SPELLERS
Unlike idiots
We ideate
MS. PERETTI (spoken)
To ideate means to form an image or idea; to think
LEAF
At the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
LOGAINNE
We feel no animosity
GIRL SPELLERS
And yet our heads are spinning
WILLIAM
We are
The slightest bit bizarre
MARCY
But since the time is now
LEAF
Holy cow
LOGAINNE
We shal make a solemn vow
To concentrate
On winning
ALL
We concentrate on winning
At the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
We speak so damn convincingly
MS. PERETTI
They're nervous but they're grinning
LOGAINNE, OLIVE
It seems
We're living out our dreams
BOY SPELLERS
Which is a very nice, very nice
Very very very nice
ALL
Very nice, very nice
Very very very nice
Very nice
Beginning
MS. PERETTI
25th Annual
SPELLERS
25th Annual
ALL
Putnam County
Spelling Bee!
