Case Ending Songs...
(Note: For all these songs, pronounce the case endings according to Latin pronunciation. For example, "Ae - i - i" is sung as "Iye -eee -eee." In the Dative song, "is" is sung as "ees."

Oh, Genitive Possessive Case
Ae – i- i (pronounced i --eee- eeee)
Arum, orum, orum…
Accusative Ending Song (Includes 3rd Declension M+F- To the Tune of Row, Row, Row Your Boat) Lyrics by Jocelyn Demuth
Am, um, um and em
Tell me once again!
As, os, a and es
That’s the accusative case!
Dative Song (To the Tune of Hi, Ho, Hi… -Dwarves' song from Snow White)
Lyrics by Jocelyn Demuth
Ae – O and O
Then back to is we go!
Use the dative with verbs like do, dono, mando, monstro
Note: The last line of this song immediately feeds back into the first line and is sung until no one can stand it anymore
