Refrain:
Do you have extension tension,
When you try to spell /shun/?
Do you spell it like invention,
Or like another one?
Do you spell it like magician?
Is that the way to go?
Do you have extension tension?
I just want to know.

 

 

 

 


1. Fraction and attraction use t-i-o-n, 
Some word families are spelled that way.
Collection and correction use the pattern again;
I can feel the tension melt away.
T-i-o-n and s-i-o-n and now I know a few more.
S-s-i-o-n and c-i-a-n,
I'll keep those patterns in store.
[Refrain]

3. Session and confession use s-s-i-o-n,
Some word families are spelled that way.
Discussion and percussion use the pattern again;
I can feel the tension melt away.
T-i-o-n and s-i-o-n and now I know a few more.
S-s-i-o-n and c-i-a-n,
I’ll keep those patterns in store.
[Refrain]

2. Mansion and expansion use s-i-o-n,
Some word families are spelled that way.
Dimension and suspension use the pattern again;
I can feel the tension melt away.
T-i-o-n and s-i-o-n and now I know a few more.
S-s-i-o-n and c-i-a-n,
I’ll keep those patterns in store.
[Refrain]
4. Musician and magician use c-i-a-n,
Some word families are spelled that way.
Physician and optician use the pattern again;
I can feel the tension melt away.
T-i-o-n and s-i-o-n and now I know a few more.
S-s-i-o-n and c-i-a-n,
I’ll keep those patterns in store.
[Refrain]
