This teaches you about irregular verbs:

To put regular verbs in the past tense, we add an “e-d,”
Irregular verbs can’t do the same so easily.
Spelling changes in the past tense, instead
(x2)

They describe actions or states of being from what we’ve heard.
But this morning or last year or past things that happened,
We put verbs in a different form called past tense.
These are regular verbs, it’s fairly easy,
We make them past tense by adding an “e-d.”
Like walk and walked, talk and talked,
Bike and biked, type and typed, right.
But some verbs and “e-d” don’t make sense,
We have to change the spelling to make them past tense.
She runs, but he ran, she swims, but he swam.
The choir singed, or is it sang? The dog drinked, or is it drank?
She didn't teach, but she taught. Is it buyed, or is it bought?
Take a minute, and sit with it, tell me what you think.

How do we put irregular verbs in the past tense?
“I writed a text.” That doesn’t look or sound right,
But “I wrote a text,” and now we’re using our insight.
Some verbs are even more irregular when describing the past,
With other helping verbs like “was” and “have.”
Let me give you an example, give you a little sample.
Think of it like a puzzle that you got to unscramble,
She threw the dodgeball,
Now I throw the dodgeball,
And he has thrown the dodgeball,
Keeping it away from us all.
So did you catch that?
Yeah, you caught that,
Now we have seen the facts,
Shout-out to this irregular verbs rap.

Is it sweeped, or is it swept?
Is it keeped, or is it kept?
Is it teached, or is it taught?
Is it buyed, or is it bought?
Is it rised, or is it rose?
Is it writed or wrote?
Is it spended, or it’s spent?
Did you go’d? Nah, you went.
