Interpretation 1[edit]

This song is like the alphabet song, only it is sung backwards. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 13:41, August 21, 2005

OOOHHHHHHH. Of course. Man, I was taking these lyrics in a completely wrong direction. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 19:08, November 19, 2006

Interpretation 2[edit]

This song is simply posing a question. Why do we do things the way we do them? Why do you we sing the letters in the alphabet the way we do? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 13:36, October 16, 2006

Because the alphabet was put in alphabetical order.--McBob 00:10, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
Well, who put the alphabet in alphabetical order, then? --Nivek 21:01, July 19, 2007
You put the alphabet in alphabetical order! I wonder if they got the idea for this idea from how police officers ask you to say the alphabet backwards. --Supergiants 17:49, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

...nice touch[edit]

Nice touch on the 6/8 time, Johns. Goes very well with letter triplets in the song.
