"A Noun is a Person, Place or Thing" is a song in Schoolhouse Rock!, which can be seen in Grammar Rock. The song teaches us about nouns.

Lyrics

Well every person you can know
And every place that you can go
And anything that you can show
You know they're nouns

A noun's a special kind of word
It's any name you ever heard
I find it quite interesting
A noun's a person, place or thing

Oh, I took a train, took a train to another state
The flora and the fauna that I saw were really great
When I saw some bandits catch the train
I was wishing I was back home again
I took a train, took a train to another state

Well, every person you can know (Like a bandit or an engineer)
And every place that you can go (Like a state or a home)
And anything that you can show (Like animals and plants or a train)
You know they're nouns
You know they're nouns, oh...

Mrs. Jones is a lady on Hudson Street
She sent her dog to bark at my brother and me
We gave her dog a big fat bone
And now he barks at Mrs. Jones
She's a lady who lives on Hudson Street

Well, every person you can know (Mrs. Jones, a lady, or a brother)
And every place that you can go (Like a street or a corner)
And anything that you can show (Like a dog or a bone)
You know they're nouns
You know they're nouns, oh...

I took a ferry to the Statue of Liberty
My best friend was waitin' there for me (He took an early ferry.)
We went for a walk on the island you know
And in the middle of summer, it started to snow
When I took a ferry to the Statue of Liberty

Well every person you can know (Like a friend or the captain of a ship)
And every place that you can go (An island or a sea)
And anything that you can show (Like a statue, a ferry, or snow)
You know they're nouns
You know they're nouns

Oh, I put a dime in the drugstore record machine
Oldie goldies started playing, if you know what I mean
I heard Chubby Checker, he was doin' the twist
And the Beatles and the Monkees, it goes like this
I put a dime in the drugstore record machine

Well every person you can know (The Beatles and the Monkees, Chubby Checker)
And every place that you can go (Like a neighborhood or a store)
And anything that you can show (Like a dime or a record machine)
You know they're nouns

A noun's a special kind of word
It's any name you ever heard
I find it quite interesting
A noun's a person, place or thing
A noun is a person, place or thing
