John Grant – Rhetorical Figure Lyrics

Rhetorical Figure Lyrics – John Grant

Some people like alliteration
But I know it’s been an assonance man
(Ah eh ah oh ah
Ah eh ah oh ah
Ah eh ah oh ah ah ah
Ah eh ah oh ah
Ah eh ah oh ah ah)
Some people like to go on vacation
I decline and conjugate therefore I am
(Essen-ab-Gegessen
Flechten-floght-gefloghten
Gieben-goss-gegossen
Klingen-klang-geklungen
Helfen-half-geholfen)

If you want to get with me
You better have a rhetorical figure
A rhetorical figure
If you want to get up on this
You better have a rhetorical figure
A rethorical figure
Rhetorical figure (rhetorical figure)
Rhetorical figure (rhetorical figure)

Epizeuxis, epizeuxis, epizeuxis, epizeuxis
We use it a lot, but the spell kind of spooks us
You constant employment of analogy
Is a turn on that is certainly not lost on me

If you want to get with me
You better have a rhetorical figure
A rhetorical figure
If you want to get up on this
You better have a rhetorical figure
A rethorical figure
Rhetorical figure (rhetorical figure)
Rhetorical figure (rhetorical figure)

You’re an expert when it comes to using paraprosdokians
Unlike so many of your fellow Americans
I love the way you use aposiopesis
Much more than when you make use of antirrhesis

If you want to get with me
You better have a rhetorical figure
A rhetorical figure
If you want to get up on this
You better have a rhetorical figure
If you want to the truth
I prefer a rhetorical figure
A rhetorical figure
If you want to get up on this
You better have a rhetorical figure
A rethorical figure
Rhetorical figure (rhetorical figure)
Rhetorical figure (rhetorical figure)

So many people chasing sacagaweas
Me I’d rather have a bunch of onomatopoeias
Yhap, splat, gurgle, gurgle
Yhap, splat, gurgle, gurgle
Yhap, splat, gurgle, gurgle
Yhap, splat, gurgle, gurgle
