why does everybody do this with the alphabet
a b c d e f g h i j k "elmenohpee" q r s t u v w x y and z


happens every time and it's not hard to spot. is there a reason for this.... it's not like the japanese alphabet which literally starts with the word love. so why do people do it.... lol.

1. Striding and swaggering rootlessness without end. The precious flow of life.
2. one should fear sweet a blood stained flower.

"elmenohpee" .... we treat that section of the alphebet as if it where a word.... go ahead... say it to yourself... you do it every time in the exact same manner.. everybody seems to do it as well.. "elmenohpee" shouldn't be as a word in the alphabet.

It's a song. You have to do it like that to fit all of those letters into that spot in the song.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

RE: why does everybody do this with the alphabet
I'd like to take this opportunity to add in that "zed" does not rhyme with "vee," proving that "zee" is the correct pronunciation. Otherwise the song doesn't work.

That's why it should be "ved"

RE: why does everybody do this with the alphabet
Other versions split it differently, slow it down, and take out the 'and' between y and z, which is equally confusing.

a b c d e f g
h i j k l m n
o p q
r s t
u v w x y z

Instead of
a b c d e f g
h i j k lmnop
q r s
t u v
w x
y and z
