N Apostrophe T, An Educational Song From PBS Kids’ Show ‘The Electric Company’ (1970s)

N Apostrophe T is a catchy grammar oriented song written by Tom Lehrer, arranged by Joe Raposo and performed on The Electric Company, an educational PBS kids television series from the 70’s, by actors Jim Boyd and Lee Chamberlin. Like many of the sketches on The Electric Company, this song did a great job of putting a positive and educational spin on grammar for kids and how dropping “n’t” off of a word can make it a little less grouchy.
