T he 23 helping verbs of the mean lean verb machine jingle
The 23 Helping Verbs of the Mean, Lean Verb Machine Jingle!!

These 23 helping verbs will be on my test.

I gotta remember them so I can do my best.

I’ll start out with 8 and finish with 15;

Just call me the mean, lean verb machine.

There are 8 be verbs that are easy as can be:

am, is, are – was and were,

am, is, are – was and were,

am, is, are – was and were,

be, being, and been.

All together now, the 8 be verbs:

am, is, are – was and were – be, being, and been,

am, is, are – was and were – be, being, and been.

There’re 23 helping verbs, and I’ve recited only 8.

That leaves fifteen more that I must relate:

has, have, and had – do, does, and did,

has, have, and had – do, does, and did,

might, must, may – might, must, may.

Knowing these verbs will save my grade:

can and could – would and should,

can and could – would and should,

shall and will, - shall and will.

In record time, I did this drill.

I’m the mean, lean verb machine – STILL!

She could not bring her Swiss money into Russia. When she had a chance to speak to the guard stationed at the counter, she asked if she could keep a special Swiss coin that had been in her family for years. The guard’s response was unclear. When she repeated the question, he recited some repetitive phrases about the rules of the country. She thanked him and went to the desk where money could be changed into Russian rubles.
