Music Has It!

Music is a fun way to learn English. Singing a song makes a good-vocabulary building activity and improves pronunciation skill( check KARAOKE GROUP). In addition,  Music lyric provides us grammar, reading enhancement, comprehension, vocabulary, idioms, phrases, slang words and others. It is really an effective and helpful  learning/teaching tool for all of us. If you can't sing, simply listening to music will help you along the way. Remember, MUSIC HAS IT ALL!

    Lyric of the song

    You know the bed feels warmer
    Sleeping here alone
    You know I dream in colour
    And do the things I want

    You think you got the best of me
    Think you had the last laugh
    Bet you think that everything good is gone
    Think you left me broken down
    Think that I'd come running back
    Baby you don't know me, cause you're dead wrong

    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
    Stand a little taller
    Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
    What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
    Footsteps even lighter
    Doesn't mean I'm over cause you're gone

    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
    Just me, myself and I
    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
    Stand a little taller
    Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone

    You heard that I was starting over with someone new
    They told you I was moving on over you

    You didn't think that I'd come back
    I'd come back swinging
    You tried to break me, but you see

    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
    Stand a little taller
    Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
    What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
    Footsteps even lighter
    Doesn't mean I'm over cause you're gone

    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
    Just me, myself and I
    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
    Stand a little taller
    Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone

    Thanks to you I got a new thing started
    Thanks to you I'm not the broken hearted
    Thanks to you I'm finally thinking bout me
    You know in the end the day you left was just my beginning
    In the end...

    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
    Stand a little taller
    Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
    What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
    Footsteps even lighter
    Doesn't mean I'm over cause you're gone

    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
    Just me, myself and I
    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
    Stand a little taller
    Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone

  • Lyric:

    "Good Girl"

    Hey, good girl
    With your head in the clouds
    I bet you I can tell you
    What you’re thinkin' about
    You'll see a good boy
    Gonna give you the world
    But he’s gonna leave you cryin'
    With your heart in the dirt

    His lips are dripping honey
    But he’ll sting you like a bee
    So lock up all your loving
    Go and throw away the key

    Hey good girl
    Get out while you can
    I know you think you got a good man

    [Hook]
    Why, why you gotta be so blind?
    Won’t you open up your eyes?
    It’s just a matter of time 'til you find
    He’s no good, girl
    No good for you
    You better get to getting on your goodbye shoes and go, go, go...
    Better listen to me
    He’s low, low, low...

    Hey, good girl
    You got a heart of gold
    You want a white wedding
    And a hand you can hold
    Just like you should, girl
    Like every good girl does
    Want a fairytale ending, somebody to love

    But he’s really good at lying
    Yeah, he’ll leave you in the dust
    'Cause when he says forever
    Well, it don’t mean much
    Hey good girl
    So good for him
    Better back away honey
    You don’t know where he’s been

    [Hook]
    Why, why you gotta be so blind?
    Won’t you open up your eyes?
    It’s just a matter of time 'til you find
    He’s no good, girl
    No good for you
    You better get to getting on your goodbye shoes and go, go, go...
    Yeah yeah yeah, he’s low
    Yeah yeah yeah

    [Bridge]
    Oh, He’s no good, girl
    Why can’t you see?
    He’ll take your heart and break it
    Listen to me, yeah

    [Hook/Outro]
    Why, why you gotta be so blind?
    Won’t you open up your eyes?
    It’s just a matter of time 'til you find
    He’s no good, he’s no good

    Won’t you open up your eyes?
    It’s just a matter of time 'til you find
    He’s no good, girl
    He’s no good for you
    You better get to getting on your goodbye shoes



    Vocabulary:

    have head in the cloud (idiom) - to not know what is really happening around because of paying too much attention with own

    heart of gold (idiom) - a generous and kind person

    a matter of time (idiom) - sure to happen at some time in the future.

    Do you think there are figurative speech in the  song/lyric? If yes, would you write it down here?

    You can also do the same..post a music video and share those vocabulary in its lyric.

    Goodnight!
