Full Text

Why, oh why, do I love Y?
Why, oh why, do I love Y?
I’ll tell you why I love the letter Y.

I can yell yippee, yippee, yahoo, and yeah, yeah, yeah and yee-hah!
I can do yoga with a yo-yo all year in my yard.
I can eat yogurt on a yam,
knitting yellow yarn with a yawning yak.

Y is yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.
Y is yes, yes.
Y is yes.

Why, oh why, do I love Y?
Why, oh why, do I love Y?

Right after X and right before Z.
Y is the perfect place to be!
If it didn’t have a little bitty tail,
it would be the letter V.

And that is why I love the letter—

Why, oh why, do I love Y?
Why, oh why, oh why, oh why do I love Y?
How I love the beautiful letter Y!
