The present tense thing
She just couldn’t understand,
So the teacher turned — taking the iPhone from her hand, and said,
If you stopped playing with your phone in my class,
The rules of present tense you might understand at last.
Take a seat. I’ll try to explain, again.
It goes like this young lady…
I tweet, I’m tweeting, I’ve tweeted, I’ve been tweeting
I post, I’m posting, I’ve posted, I’ve been posting
I upload, I’m uploading, I’ve uploaded, I’ve been uploading
I text, I’m texting, I’ve texted, I’ve been texting
Now that you understand what you have to do
We’ll turn the conversation back on you
You tweet, you’re tweeting, you’ve tweeted, you’ve been tweeting
You post, you’re posting, you’ve posted, you’ve been posting
You upload, you’re uploading, you’ve uploaded, you’ve been uploading
You text, you’re texting, you’ve texted, you’ve been texting
Now that you finally understand what you have to do
We’ll all sing together.
I’ll follow you
Tweet, am tweeting, have tweeted, have been tweeting
Post, am posting, have posted, have been posting
Upload, am uploading, have uploaded, have been uploading
Text, am texting, have texted, have been texting
