1. If the jackets belong to boys,
That’s s-apostrophe.
That’s what we want to see,
That s-apostrophe.
If the jackets just belong to one,
Apostrophe-s is how it’s done.
That’s how it’s always done.
4. If dessert is shared by sisters,
That’s s-apostrophe.
That’s what we want to see,
That s-apostrophe.
If dessert just belongs to one,
Apostrophe-s is how it’s done.
That’s how it’s always done.
[Refrain]

2. If the hats all belong to girls,
That’s s-apostrophe.
That’s what we want to see,
That s-apostrophe.

Apostrophe-s is how it’s done.
That’s how it’s always done.
5. If grandfathers both own the house,
That’s s-apostrophe.
That’s what we want to see,
That s-apostrophe.

That’s how it’s always done.

Refrain:
So if your singular words possess,
You have to add apostrophe-s.
But if it’s plural words you see,
You need that s-Apostrophe.
This rule’s reliable unless
A plural does not end in s.
Then you must add an apostrophe-s.
6. If the guys own a fancy car,
