  • Song Lyrics:
    Who can turn a can into a cane?
    Who can turn a pan into a pane?
    It’s not too hard to see
    It’s silent E!

    Who can turn a cub into a cube?
    Who can turn a tub into a tube?
    It’s elementary
    For silent E!

    He took a pin and turned it into pine.
    He took a twin and turned him into twine.

    Who can turn a cap into a cape?
    Who can turn a tap into a tape?
    A little glob becomes a globe instantly,
    If you just add silent E!

    He turned a dam - Alakazam! - into a dame!
    But my friend Sam stayed just the same.

    Who can turn a man into a mane?
    Who can turn a van into a vane?
    A little hug becomes huge instantly!
    Don’t add W, don’t add X, and don’t add Y or Z,
    Just add silent E!
    (Bill L)
