lyrics

Smooth direction! Smooth order!
Smooth transitions! Smooth closure!
Smooth direction! Smooth order!
Smooth transitions! Smooth closure!

Organization, that's the way you make things fit
Direction and connection through ideas that you hit
You start with a beginning that pulls your reader in
And you build, and you build, and you close, and that's the end
It's that simple, but you got to be smooth
Get your transitions in place between the elements you use
Each word, each sentence, each paragraph has its place
They fit together. There's an order as you make your case

Smooth direction! Smooth order!
Smooth transitions! Smooth closure!
Smooth direction! Smooth order!
Smooth transitions! Smooth closure!
