Print Save Become a Fan
Every Good Boy Does Fine
or so I am told
This mnemonic is so old
a letter for every note on a line.
Maybe this phrase worked for a time.
Who came up with the statement, so bold?
Why do they think that they struck gold?
Surely this message is a crime!
My Very Educated Mother...
Tells me to wise up in this life;
"bickering" will not get me a wife.
God gave me no sister or brother
I put the blame on the man called my father.
Surely this line doesn't rhyme.
