about

A cover of the Schoolhouse Rock original "Conjunction Junction" by Bob Dorough, originally performed by Jack Sheldon, Terry Morel and Mary Sue Berry.

Thanks to The Doubleclicks, Aubrey and Angela Webber, for being the best ever guest stars on this tune! www.thedoubleclicks.com

Angela played Ukulele, Aubrey played cello, and we all sang "But!" a lot together. I hope someday we get matching outfits.

lyrics

Conjunction Junction, what's your function?
Hookin' up words and phrases and clauses
Conjunction Junction, how's that function?
I got three favorite cars that get most of my job done
Conjunction Junction, what's their function?
I got "and", "but", and "or",
They'll get you pretty far.

"And:" That's an additive, like "this and that"
"But:" That's sort of the opposite, "Not this *but* that"
And then there's "or," O-R, when you have a choice like "This or that." "And," "but," and "or" get you pretty far!

Conjunction Junction, what's your function?
Hooking up two boxcars and making 'em run right
Milk and honey, bread and butter, peas and rice
Hey that's nice!
Dirty but happy, digging and scratching,
Losing your shoe and a button or two
He's poor but honest, sad but true
Boo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!

Conjunction Junction, what's your function?
Hooking up phrases and clauses that balance, like:
Out of the frying pan and into the fire.
He cut loose the sandbags,
But the balloon wouldn't go any higher.
Let's go up to the mountains
Or down to the sea.
You should always say "thank you,"
Or at least say "please."

Conjunction Junction, watch that function
Gonna get you there if you're very careful
Conjunction Junction, what's your function
Gonna get you there if you're very careful

Marian Call loves making music for you. She sounds a little like Joni Mitchell meets They Might Be Giants & Regina Spektor for bourbon & laughs. She hails from Alaska but can often be found touring North America and Europe, and she lives on Twitter. Her songs are quirky, geeky, eclectic acoustic confections that taste like vanilla-cinnamon-chipotle something. ... more
