"Interjections!" is a song in Schoolhouse Rock!, from the episode Grammar Rock. The song teaches us about interjections.

Lyrics

When Reginald was home with the flu, uh-huh-huh
The doctor knew just what to do-hoo
He cured the infection with one small injection
While Reginald uttered some interjections...

Spoken:
Hey! That smarts!
Ouch! That hurts!
Yow! That's not fair givin' a guy a shot down there!

Interjections (Hey!)
Show excitement (Yow!)
Or emotion (Ouch!)
They're generally set apart from a sentence
By an exclamation point
Or by a comma when the feeling's not as strong

Though Geraldine played hard to get, uh-huh-huh
Geraldo knew he'd woo her ye-het
He showed his affection, despite her objections
And Geraldine hollered some interjections...

Spoken:
Well! You've got some nerve!
Oh! I've never been so insulted in all my life!
Hey! You're kinda cute!

Interjections (Well!)
Show excitement (Oh!)
Or emotion (Hey!)
They're generally set apart from a sentence
By an exclamation point,
Or by a comma when the feeling's not as strong

So when you're happy (Hooray!)
Or sad (Aw!)
Or frightened (Eek!)
Or mad (Rats!)
Or excited (Wow!)
Or glad (Hey!)
An interjection starts a sentence right.

The game was tied at seven all, uh-huh-huh,
When Franklin found he had the ba-hall.
He made a connection in the other direction,
And the crowd started shouting out interjections...

Spoken:
Aw! You threw the wrong way!
Darn! You just lost the game!
Hooray! I'm for the other team!

Interjections (Aw!)
Show excitement (Darn!)
Or emotion (Hooray!)
They're generally set apart from a sentence
By an exclamation point
Or by a comma when the feeling's not as strong

So when you're happy (Hooray!)
Or sad (Aw!)
Or frightened (Eek!)
Or mad (Rats!)
Or excited (Wow!)
Or glad (Hey!)
An interjection starts a sentence right

Interjections (Hey!)
Show excitement (Hey!)
Or emotion (Hey!)
They're generally set apart from a sentence
By an exclamation point
Or by a comma when the feeling's not as strong

Interjections
Show excitement
Or emotion
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah...
YAY!

Spoken:
Darn! That's the end!
