When you're forming possessives, what do you do?  
It depends on the word that you're doing it to!

POSSESSIVE SONG
Words by Suzy Red, to the tune of "Clementine"

Show possession!
Show possession!

Use possessive apostrophes!

Write the noun first,

Decide its number;

Then form possession so easily:
Show possession!
Show possession!

Use possessive apostrophes!

For singular ownership,

"Apostrophe s" is all you need!
Show possession!
Show possession!

Use possessive apostrophes!

For plurals, many plurals,

"Apostrophe s" is all you need!
Show possession!
Show possession!

Use possessive apostrophes!

For plurals ending in "s", 

Just add a little apostrophe!
Let's all spell it!
Let's all spell it!

Let's all spell APOSTROPHE!

A-P-O-S-T-R-O---P-H-E! 

Apostrophe!
