    The answer to both is Wolf, it fits both statements.

    Hi, BG

    Ya got 'em all.
    1. Alphabet. I learned the alphabet before I went to school. My
    mother had studied to be a teacher. Our learning device was not
    blocks but cardboard letters 2-3 inches high.

    2. Telephone. The song was written by Irving Berlin and introduced
    in a Broadway show by Grace Moore who later became a star at the
    Met and sang in several films.

    3. Parade. Parade rest is kinda an oxymoron. When you're
    standing, you're not parading.

    4. Buttons. I remember Red Buttons. Was a star of Broadway, movies
    and TV. An Oscar winner.
