    make them up/make some up

    Which is correct:
    1-You probably know the words to this song, so sing along with me. Those of you who don't know them, make them up.
    2-You probably know the words to this song, so sing along with me. Those of you who don't know them, make some up.

    I think '2' is more logical because if you are making words up for a song, you are not making up the real words! But I think people would use '1'.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: make them up/make some up

    Both could be used. I prefer the second.

    I'd say 'If you don't know them, go "la, la, la".'
