Many songs will spell out a word in parts of their lyric as an attempt to either raise the literacy of the population or to demonstrate the competency of the writer. Please list the songs you know that will also help your spelling.

As someone who's literately inept I will begin with a failed example: Gwen Stephanie's "B-A-N-A-N-A-N!"

Ah, Hollaback Girl, the song that ranks number two on my list of all time worst songs ever written. Right behind Crank Dat, the song where the singer tries to see how many times his own name can be said.

Corny, but...

:music:
I've been around the world, you bet, but never went to school
Hard knocks are all I seem to get, perhaps I've been a fool;
But still, some educated folks, supposed to be so swell,
Would fail if they were called upon a simple word to spell.
Now if you'd like to put me to the test,
There's one dear name that I can spell the best!

"M" is for the million things she gave me
"O" means only that she's growing old
"T" is for the tears she shed to save me
"H" is for her heart of purest gold
"E" is for her eyes with love-light shining
"R" means right and right she'll always be

Put them all together they spell MOTHER, a word that means the world to me.

When I was but a baby, long before I learned to walk,
While lying in my cradle, I would try my best to talk;
It wasn't long before I spoke and all the neighbors heard,
My folks were very proud of me for "Mother" was the word.
Although I'll never lay a claim to fame,
I'm satisfied that I can spell the name:

"M" is for the mercy she possesses
"O" means that I owe her all I own
"T" is for her tender, sweet caresses
"H" is for her hands that made a home
"E" means ev'rything she's done to help me
"R" means real and regular, you see

Put them all together they spell MOTHER, a word that means the world to me

Nat King Cole -LOVE

L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see
V is very, very extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore can
