For your entertainment! A song featuring the amazing Moya (L) and Dita (R). For those of us who are still not sure about some / some of, most / most of, etc!


Some of us work
Most of us play
All of us pray for success one day
None of us read
Some of us write
Some of us dance ’til the morning light
Some students like to stay out all night
Most teachers tell them that isn’t right
All study time their eyes are shut tight
How will they ever succeed?
Some of us smoke
Some of us drink
Few of us know how to write with ink
Some of us seek
Some of us find
None of us want to be left behind
Some students like to stay out all night
Most teachers tell them that isn’t right
All study time their eyes are shut tight
How will they ever succeed?
Reading’s boring; We end up snoring;
So many pages; But zero drawings
We only study; When there’s a test to take; Big mistake!
Some students like to stay out all night
Most teachers tell them that isn’t right
All study time their eyes are shut tight
So ineffectual; Unintellectual;
How will they ever succeed?

Enjoy!

    So what is the rule of that? I did not get it from the song.

    • mm pakguru says:

      ‘Some of’ + a group that is complete; ‘Some’ + incomplete group. But it’s also useful to notice the grammar of words that follow each. So, ‘Some’ + plural count noun; ‘Some of’ + the/them/these/possessives/us etc.

    Could you please publish the lyric of the song.
