lol.  There used to be a Web site that had all of the clips available.  I 
was going to send the link to the grammar rock noun song as the non-text 
content for the lyrics...instead I guess we'll all have to buy the video:

for those of you not familiar with schoolhouse rock - animated songs that 
teach about society, grammar, and other stuff.  My favorite is "adjective." 
I often use it in a teaching exercise.  I make people write captions and 
audio descriptions for it.
