Alliteration makes your tongue tingle too

Personification makes the wind howl and coo

Hyperbole will grant your wish

You’ll have no problem catching a million fish

Now, I’m just talking figuratively

So, please don’t take me literally

 

Alliteration makes squirrels skip and skate

Personification makes your alarm clock irate

Hyperbole lets you have some fun

You’ll be so strong you can lift a ton

Now, I’m just talking figuratively

So, please don’t take me literally

 

Alliteration lets you eat pink peach pie

Personification lets stars dance across the sky

Hyperbole lets you whistle a sweet tune

You can go where you want even fly to the moon

Now, I’m just talking figuratively

So, please don’t take me literally

 

Alliteration lets you twist, tumble, and tuck

Personification lets you talk to a crazy duck

Hyperbole lets you do more still

You’ll grow older than those big old hills

Now, I’m just talking figuratively

So, please don’t take me literally

 

Alliteration makes my stomach roar, roll, and rumble

Personification makes the thunder grumble

Hyperbole is exaggeration of course

You’ll be so hungry you’ll eat a horse

Now, I’m just talking figuratively

So, please don’t take me literally

 

Alliteration makes you try, try, try

Personification makes the sad clouds cry

Hyperbole will help you make rhymes

I think I‘ve told you this a million times

Now, I’m just talking figuratively

So, please don’t take me literally
