Piosenki

piątek, 11 lipca 2014

Lisa Marie Presley była żoną Michaela Jacksona. Lubiłam ją, trochę zrobiło mi się smutno, gdy się rozstali. Po latach w wywiadzie z Ophrą Winfrey opowiedziała o swoim życiu z Michaelem i o swoich uczuciach wobec niego.

Lisa Marie była przez długi okres czasu członkinią Kościoła Scjentologicznego. W necie można znaleźć różne niekorzystne filmiki na temat tej sekty. Ostatnio dowiedziałam się, że odeszła ona z sekty i napisała piosenkę So Long. Przeczytajcie i posłuchajcie, bo tekst daje do myślenia.


Lisa Marie Presley - So Long

This here is a city without lights
Those are all the people without eyes
Churches they don't have a soul
Soup for sale without a bowl
Religion so corrupt and running lives
Farewell fair weathered friends
I can't say I'll miss you in the end

Chorus:

So long, seems that I was so wrong
Seems I wasn't that strong
Dead wrong, and now I'm long gone
Wrong side, I've been sleeping on the wrong side
Stains all over my soul I can't hide
Nothings more clear than goodbye

These roads they don't lead to anything
These people they talk, they say nothing
Actors who don't have a part
Heartfelt people with no heart
I'll find a new crowd
Make a new start
Farewell fair weathered friends
I can't say I'll miss you in the end

(Chorus)

So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, say nothing at all if you've nothing nice to say

(Chorus)

Kiedyś, gdy pracowałam w szkole językowej i miałam zajęcia z dorosłymi 2 razy w tygodniu, obiecałam sobie, że na każdej lekcji pod koniec posłuchamy jakiejś piosenki, uczniowie uzupełniają słówka i zrobią kilka ćwiczeń czy to na jakąś strukturę gramatyczną, pojawiającą się w piosence, czy również na słownictwo. Z tego powstało dużo kart pracy, chociaż czasami korzystałam z materiałów dostępnych w Internecie, ale rzadko mi one pasowały.

Dzisiaj zapraszam do nauki angielskiego z pomocą Rihanny. Zabijcie mnie, ale nie wiem, na czym wzorowałam te ćwiczenia. Był to chyba jakiś blog, gdzie było dużo ćwiczeń na podstawie piosenek. Później wiele razy próbowałam odszukać tę stronę, jednak bez skutku. Wydaje mi się, że ćwiczenie z definicjami części ciała trochę sama zmieniłam, bo tamta wersja była za trudna. Natomiast ostatnie ćwiczenie zrobiłam sama.

Ville Vallo & Natalia Avelon - Summer Wine

Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things

I walked in town on silver spurs that jingled to
A song that I had only sang to just a few
She saw my silver spurs and said lets pass some time
And I will give to you summer wine
Ohh-oh-oh summer wine

Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine
Ohhh-oh summer wine

My eyes grew heavy and my lips they could not speak
I tried to get up but I couldn't find my feet
She reassured me with an unfamiliar line
And then she gave to me more summer wine
Ohh-oh-oh summer wine

Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine
Mmm-mm summer wine

When I woke up the sun was shining in my eyes
My silver spurs were gone my head felt twice its size
She took my silver spurs a dollar and a dime
And left me cravin' for more summer wine
Ohh-oh-oh summer wine

Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine
Mmm-mm summer wine

- spurs - ostrogi

- jingle - brzęczeć, dzwonić

Old friend, why are you so .............?

Ain't like you to hold back or hide from the .............

But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.

I had hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me it isn't over.

Never mind, I'll find someone like you

I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't ......................, I beg,
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love

Sometimes it lasts in love

You know how the time flies

Only ....................  was the time of our lives

We were born and raised

In a ........................

Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up .....................  uninvited

But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.
I'd hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded

Adele – Someone like you

I heard that you're settled down

That you found a girl and you're married now.

I heard that your dreams came true.

Guess she gave you things I didn't give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?

Ain't like you to hold back or hide from the light.
I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited

But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.

I had hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me it isn't over.

Never mind, I'll find someone like you

I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg,
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love
but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love
but sometimes it hurts instead, "

You know how the time flies

Only yesterday was the time of our lives

We were born and raised

In a summer haze

Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited

But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.
I'd hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded

That for me it isn't over.

Never mind, I'll find someone like you

I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg,
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love
but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love
but sometimes it hurts instead, "

Nothing compares

No worries or cares

Regrets and mistakes

They are memories made.

Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Never mind, I'll find someone like you

I wish nothing but the best for you

Don't forget me, I beg

I remember you said,

"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead."
