      If I were a pedant
      I'd pedal in the morning
      I'd pedal in the evening
      All over this land

      I'd pedal on the newsgroups
      all sorts of propoganda
      wot mentally demand a
      back of my hand

      I'd pedal gramma and syntax
      that made happy the old bats
      and leather elbowed courdroy twats
      that taught me every precious rule
      when I was forced to go to school

      If I had good grammar
      I'd stammer in the evening
      I'd stammer in the morning
      all over this...........

      There's nothing pretentious about your using the conditional
      mood in its correct place.
