    There's A New Version Of The Alphabet Song To Clarify The "LMNOP" Part, And People Are Not Happy

    "That was disgusting."

    So apparently there's a new version of the alphabet song that was created in order to clarify the "LMNOP" part of the lyrics, which many kids — and some adults — often group together, resulting in "elemenope."

    They changed the ABC song to clarify the LMNOP part, and it is life ruining.

    The updated version comes from DreamEnglish.com, a website that aims to "make educational music that is not only filled with important phrases and grammar but is also enjoyable to listen to."

    When screenwriter and producer Noah Garfinkel shared the news, the reactions to the melodic change were immediate and passionate, and I'm howling 😂. Here are just a few of the best ones:
