Mi  I            Ni  we+addressee inclusive we. we-all.
                 Gu  we-addressee exclusive we
Vu  you          Ku  you(p) you-all
Wo  he/she/one   Su  they/ones    they (f|m|(m+f) sex)
Za  she          Zas  ellas she(p) they (f sex only)
Ha  he           Has  ellos he(p)  they (m sex only)

I'm trying to link these NGL Vector tense pronouns with a catchy tune
to shorten the memorization time. So far I have tied them in to "Spring
Fever" from the classic musical State Fair.

"I'm starry eyed and vaguely discontented..." 11 sylables.
 mi  vuwo    za  ha   nigu    kusuzashas      11 sylables.

What do ku (you-all) think of this? Has anyone done it and can anyone
come up with an alternative?  The lyric pretty well describes my state
of mind on this at the present moment.
