Song Lyrics: When you see a q, and it's next to a u, it sounds like "qu," as in quack-quack and quail, qu-qu-qu-quiver and qu-qu-qu-quiz. What a quality letter this letter q is! Q is for quake! When something starts quaking, there'll be lots of rumbling and rattling and shaking! Q is for quilt—a warm cozy spread. Just like a blanket, it goes on your bed! Q is for questions—things you want to know— like, "What is a quince? Where does a quince grow?" Q is for quick! Quick means to be fast. If you run very quickly, you won't come in last! Quiddily quiddily diddly doo—this is a song that is all about q. Quiddily quiddily diddly dee—q is the letter that comes after p! Q is for queen! The queen's name is Alice. She lives with King Quincy in quite a nice palace. Shhh! Try to whisper, the queen is asleep. Q is for quiet, so don't make a peep! Q's for quartet—that means there are four. And q's for quintet! Just add one more! A set of four singers is called a quartet. A quintet means that there are five in the set! Five in the set! Quiddily quiddily diddly doo—this is a song that is all about q. Quiddily quiddily diddly dee—q is the letter that comes after p! Now you know lots of words starting with q. Now it's time to quit. To quit means, "I'm through!" Yes, it's true! Quiddily quiddily diddly doo—this was a song that was all about q. Quiddily quiddily diddly dee—q is the letter that comes after p! Q is the letter that comes after p!
