Princeton Review Vocab Minute Podcast



In song (with some four part harmony) they sing a rhyme about some words on a single topic...

"The skinny on this song is: it's phat."

Don't Call Me Fatso, Beanpole (Junior Level)

"Don't call me Fatso, Beanpole!"
"Don't Call Me Beanpole, Fatso!
If you really have to taunt.
You may say that I am gaunt
Or have to be persuaded
to say I'm emaciated
I'm the opposite of brawny
So you can call me scrawny
"Don't Call Me Beanpole, Fatso!"

"Don't call me Fatso, Beanpole!
Yes, it's true I fill my clothes
You can call me adipose
If by my size you are stunned,
Why don't you can call me rotund?
I know it's no compliment,
But you can call me corpulent
"Don't call me Fatso, Beanpole!"

"Don't Call Me Beanpole, Fatso!"


Evil (Senior Level)

There is evil everywhere
There's no use to deny it
This song can't make it go away
But it can help you describe it.


If you have no morals, you are certainly depraved
You'd likely do most anything, you cannot be saved.

Corrupt implies an evil you acquired from another
As in "He was a nice boy 'til he was corrupted by his brother!"

If your actions are so wicked that they pain us,
The things you do can surely be described as heinous.

I know a fellow who is strange - with a sheep he flirted
There's no doubt about it - that fellow is perverted.

If you're like a devil, if some day in Hell you'll frolic
People might say accurately, you're diabolic.

There is evil everywhere
There's no use to deny it
This song can't make it go away
But it can help you describe it.


Everything in Moderation (Senior Level)

Everything in moderation
Just as Aristotle said
Too much of a good thing
Makes a good thing bad instead.

Sweet is good, but too sweet is annoying
Someone who's just too sweet is cloying.

A compliment every now and then can be romantic
But pay too many compliments, and you're sycophantic.

If you listen more than talk, there's a lot you can learn
But if you hardly ever talk, you're taciturn.

Call me names if you want, but no stones, no sticks
If I use too many words, you can call me prolix.

Everything in moderation
Just as Aristotle said
Too much of a good thing
Makes a good thing bad instead.
