    Question

    If a character is singing - for example, la la la la - then do you separate the words with a punctuation mark, or don't separate the words at all?

    Example:

    "La la la. Such a beautiful day today!"

    or

    "La, la, la. Such a beautiful day today!"

    or it depends on the chorus?

    "La la la, la la la."

    Re: Question

    It depends whether or not you are trying to indicate the actual rhythm of a particular song.

    For example, what's this?

    La la-la la la laaaaa, La la-la la la laaaaa (answer below).














































    It could be 'The Star-Spangled Banner' or 'Happy Birthday to You'.
