When Two Vowels Go Walking is a song from Between the Lions about how when two vowels are side by side, the first vowel says its name. The song is performed by Ross Bollinger, Ellen DeGeneres as the letter A when singing, Dannah Feinglass as the letter A when speaking, Gary Shapiro as the letter I and Mark Mothersbaugh as the letter E.

LyricsEdit

When two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking.
In boat, you hear the O, and not the A.
In meat, you hear the E, the A sits and stay.
The second vowel you see, but you don't say.
But!
Shh!
Just the two of us together, in train, and pail, and rain.
The A speaks up, the I does not.
But!
Shh!
Let me explain.
When two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking.
In brain, you hear the A, but not the I.
In soap, the O is clear, the A you'll never hear.
In say, you say the A, but not the Y.
But!
Shh!
Isn't it neat?
But!
Shh!
It can't be beat.
B... But!
Shh!
It's such a dream.
Don't need to boast, but here's a toast, we're quite a team.
When two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking.
I'm sorry, number two, it's such a shame.
Although it gives you pain, the rule is very plain.
When two vowels walk, the first one says its name.
But!
Shh!
Yes, when two vowels walk, the first one says its name.
