10 songs to... learn English tenses

Автор: Алёна Горбатко

Прослуховування пісень є одним з ефективних методів для вивчення будь-якої іноземної мови. Музика дуже ефективно впливає на пам'ять - у піснях краще засвоюються граматичні конструкції і лексика.

Вчені нібито визначили, що музика відкладається у правій півкулі, а мова - у лівому. Тому поєднуючи роботу обох півкуль, запам'ятовування відбувається набагато швидше. І, звичайно ж, пісні - це весело. Отже, веселіться з користю!

Ми пропонуємо Вам 10 пісень для вивчення/повторення граматичних часів англійської мови!

 
1. Green Day - Boulevard Of Broken Dreams (Present Simple)

 

 

 

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
and I'm the only one and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone

CHORUS

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone
Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah,
Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line
Of the edge and where I walk alone

Read between the lines
What's fucked up and everything's alright
Check my vital signs
To know I'm still alive and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone


CHORUS
 

 


2. Madonna - Love Profusion (Present Simple, there is/there are)

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are too many questions
There is not one solution
There is no resurrection
There is so much confusion
And the love profusion
You make me feel
You make me know
And the love vibration
You make me feel
You make it shine

There are too many options
There is no consolation
I have lost my illusions
What I want is an explanation

And the love profusion
You make me feel
You make me know
And the love direction
You make me feel
You make me shine
You make me feel
You make me shine
You make me feel
CHORUS

I got you under my skin
I got you under my skin
I got you under my skin
I got you under my skin

There is no comprehension
There is real isolation
There is so much destruction
What I want is a celebration

And I know I can feel bad
When I get in a bad mood
And the world can look so sad
Only you make me feel good

CHORUS






 

 


3. Fool's Garden - Lemon Tree (Present Continuous)

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm sitting here in the boring room
It's just another rainy Sunday afternoon
I'm wasting my time
I got nothing to do
I'm hanging around
I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I'm driving around in my car
I'm driving too fast
I'm driving too far
I'd like to change my point of view
I feel so lonely
I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

CHORUS

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just another lemon-tree
I'm sitting here
I miss the power
I'd like to go out taking a shower
But there's a heavy cloud inside my head
I feel so tired
Put myself into bed
Well, nothing ever happens and I wonder

Isolation is not good for me
Isolation I don't want to sit on the lemon-tree

I'm steppin' around in the desert of joy
Baby anyhow I'll get another toy
And everything will happen and you wonder

CHORUS








 

 


4. Chris De Burgh - Lady in Red (Present Perfect)

 

 

 

 

 

 

I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright
I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
They're looking for a little romance, given half a chance
I have never seen that dress you're wearing
Or the highlights in your head that catch your eyes I have been blind

CHORUS

The lady in red is dancing with me cheek to cheek
There's nobody here, it's just you and me, It's where I wanna be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I'll never for get, the way you look tonight

I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright you were amazing
I've never seen so many people want to be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smiled, It took my breath away
I have never had such a feeling
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight

The way you look tonight
I never will forget, the way you look tonight
The lady in red
The lady in red
The lady in red
My lady in red (I love you.)
 

 


5. Depeche Mode - Free Love (Present Perfect Continuous)

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you've been hiding from love
If you've been hiding from love
I can understand where you're coming from
I can understand where you're coming from

If you've suffered enough
If you've suffered enough
I can understand what you're thinking of
I can see the pain that you're frightened of

CHORUS

And I'm only here
To bring you free love
Let's make it clear
That this is free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached
Just free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached
Just free love

I've been running like you
I've been running like you
Now you understand why I'm running scared
Now you understand why I'm running scared
I've been searching for truth
I've been searching for truth
And I haven't been getting anywhere
No I haven't been getting anywhere

CHORUS

Hey girl
You've got to take this moment
Then let it slip away
Let go of complicated feelings
Then there's no price to pay

We've been running from love
We've been running from love
And we don't know what we're doing here
No we don't know what we're doing here

CHORUS







 

 


6. James Blunt - You're Beautiful (Past Simple)

 

 

 

 

 

 

My life is brilliant.

My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel
Of that I'm sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won't lose no sleep all night
'Cause I've got a plan.

CHORUS

You're beautiful, You're beautiful,
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do
'Cause I'll never be with you.
Yes, she caught my eye
As I walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was f***ing high,
And I don't think that I'll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last 'til the end.

CHORUS

You're beautiful, You're beautiful,
You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel
With a smile on her face
When she thought up that I should be with you,

But it's time to face the truth.
I will never be with you.

 

 


7. Queen Of New Orleans (Past Continuous)

 

 

 

 

 

 

She said baby our love's just like your songs
The beat ain't bad but the words are all wrong
It's time to pack my bags, it's time to just move on
She sang Johnny, I'm gone, gone, gone
And she was gone

Me and Leigh met summer of '95
In a burgundy dress lookin' finer than a French wine
A Cajun queen with another side
She was a schoolboy's dream, I was out of my mind
She was lookin' fine
She said "You want to drive me home"
But what I didn't know...

CHORUS
Ooh, Ooh - I was dancing with the
Queen of New Orleans
Ooh, Ooh - Dancing in the streets of New Orleans
Ooh, Ooh - Dancing cheek to cheek in New Orleans
Ooh, Ooh - It was almost like a dream

That night I made a move, man I fell hard
When I put my hands in her cookie jar
She was more than a girl, she was a cabaret star
I was a deer in the lights of a speeding car
Nothing's what it seems
She was a Venus de Milo in her sister's jeans

CHORUS

 


8. The Beatles - You’re gonna lose that girl (Will + going to)

 

 

 

 

 

 

You're gonna lose that girl.
(Yes, Yes, You're gonna lose that girl)
You're gonna lose that girl.
(Yes, Yes, You're gonna lose that girl)

If you don't take her out tonight,
She's gonna change her mind,
(She's gonna change her mind)
And I will take her out tonight,
And I will treat her kind.
(I'm gonna treat her kind)

You're gonna lose that girl.
(Yes, Yes, You're gonna lose that girl)
You're gonna lose that girl.
(Yes, Yes, You're gonna lose that girl)

 
If you don't treat her right, my friend,
You're gonna find her gone,
(You're gonna find her gone)
'cause I will treat her right, and then
You'll be the lonely one.
(You're not the only one)

You're gonna lose that girl.
(Yes, Yes, You're gonna lose that girl)
You're gonna lose that girl.
(Yes, Yes, You're gonna lose that girl)
You're gonna lose that girl.
(Yes, Yes, You're gonna lose that girl)

I'll make a point
Of taking her away from you, yeah,
(watch what you do)
The way you treat her what else can I do?

 


9. The Police - Every Breath You Take (Future Continuous)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I'll be watching you

O can't you see
You belong to me
How my poor heart aches with every step you take

 
Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you

Since you've gone I been lost without a trace
I dream at night I can only see your face
I look around but it's you I can't replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep crying baby, baby please

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you

 


10. U2 - Stuck in a Moment (Tense Review)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm not afraid
Of anything in this world
There's nothing you can throw at me
That I haven't already heard
I'm just trying to find
A decent melody
A song that I can sing
In my own company

I never thought you were a fool
But darling, look at you. Ooh.
You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight
'Cause tears are going nowhere baby

CHORUS

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment
And now you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

I will not forsake
The colors that you bring
The nights you filled with fireworks
They left you with nothing
I am still enchanted
By the light you brought to me
I listen through your ears
Through your eyes I can see
You are such a fool
To worry like you do.. Oh
I know it's tough
And you can never get enough
Of what you don't really need now
My, oh my

CHORUS

Oh lord look at you now
You've got yourself stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

I was unconscious, half asleep
The water is warm 'til you discover how deep
I wasn't jumping, for me it was a fall
It's a long way down to nothing at all


CHORUS

And if the night runs over
And if the day won't last
And if your way should falter
Along this stony pass

It's just a moment
This time will pass

Sing and Learn: Florence and The Machine – Shake It Out
Пам’ятаю, коли вперше почула пісні Florence and The Machine, подумала, що нічого подібного на вокал Флоренс Велч раніше не зустрічала. Музика, як і вокалістка, досить дивна та незвична, але точно варта уваги. Тим більше, гурт було засновано в Лондоні, а отже, вслухавшись в пісню уважніше, ви точно…
