Lyrics:

FAMILY PORTRAIT – Pink


Mama please stop crying
I can’t stand the sound
Your pain is painful and it’s
Tearing me down

I hear glasses breakin’
As I sit up in my bed
I told dad you didn’t mean
Those nasty things you said
You fight about money
‘Bout me and my brother
And this I come home to
This is my shelter

It ain’t easy, growin’ up in world war 3
Never known what love could be
You’ll see,
I don’t want love to destroy me
Like it has done my family

Can we work it out (Can we?)
Can we be a family (Can we?)
I promise I’ll be better (I promise)
Mommy I’ll do anything (I’ll do anything)
Can we work it out?
Can we be a family?
I promise I’ll be better
Daddy please don’t leave

Daddy please stop yelling (stop)
I can’t stand the sound (can’t stand the sound)
Make mama stop cryin’
‘Cause I need you around (yeah yeah yeah)
My mama she loves you (I know it)
No matter what she says it’s true
I know that she hurts you
But remember I love you too!

I ran away today, ran from the noise
Ran away (ran away)
Don’t wanna go back to that place
But don’t have no choice, no way (no choice, no way)

It ain’t easy, growin’ up in world war 3
Never knowin’ what love could be
But I’ve seen, I don’t want love to destroy me
Like it did my family

Can we work it out (Can we work it out ohhhhhh!)
Can we be a family
I promise I’ll be better (I promise)
Mommy I’ll do anything (Anything to keep you here!!!!)
Can we work it out
Can we be a family
I promise I’ll be better (I promise, I promise)
Daddy please don’t leave

In our family portrait (In our family portrait)
We look pretty happy (We look pretty happy)
Let’s play pretend, let’s act like it (let’s act let’s act let’s act like it comes)
Comes naturally
I don’t wanna have to split the holidays (no no)
I don’t want two addresses (no no no no nooo)
I don’t want a stepbrother anyways
And I don’t want my mom to have to change her last name!!!!
Ohhhhhhhh no no no no no noooooooohhhhh no no no no no

(Little kidz chorus)
In our family portrait
We look pretty happy
We look pretty normal
Lets go back to that
In our family portrait
We look pretty happy
Lets play pretend, act like it
Goes naturally

In our family portrait (Can we work it out)
We look pretty happy (Can we be a family)
We look pretty normal (I promise I’ll be better)
Lets go back to that (Mommy I’ll do anything)
In our family portait (Can we work it out)
We look pretty happy (Can we be a family)
Lets play pretend (I promise I’ll be better)
Act like it goes naturally,(Daddy please don’t leave)
Oh lets go back Oh lets go back that
Remember the days, remember the days

In our family portrait (Can we work it out)
We look pretty happy (Can we be a family)
We look pretty normal (I promise I’ll be better)
Lets go back to that (Mommy I’ll do anything)
In our family portait (Can we work it out)
We look pretty happy (Can we be a family)
We look pretty normal (I promise I’ll be better)
Please go back to that (Daddy please don’t leave)
That!!! ohhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!

Don’t leave… don’t leave… Daddy don’t leave…
Don’t leave… Daddy don’t leave…
Daddy don’t leave.. Daddy don’t leave… Daddy dont leave…
Don’t leave… don’t leave…
Turn around please…

The 1950s – “Rock around the clock”

18 Mar

Last class we did the song

“Rock around the clock” by Bill Haley.

Listen again!

The song is from 1952.

RESEARCH – PESQUISA

Esta música foi escrita nos Estados Unidos em 1952. Vamos tentar entender melhor como era a vida naquele tempo.

Faça uma pesquisa (internet, livros, perguntando para alguém que sabe) sobre a década de ’50 nos Estados Unidos e também no Brasil: Por exemplo, quem foram os políticos mais importantes daquele tempo? Quem foram os cantores / cantoras ou atores / atrizes que fizeram sucesso? Como era a situaçao econômica e social nesses dois países? Qual era o regime político naquele tempo? Teve alguma guerra, algum conflito, algum protesto, ou algum outro evento que você acha muito importante, triste, surpreendente ou marcante? Já tinha internet? – televisao? – telefone? – CD? – vídeogame? – celular? – …

Você NAO precisa responder TODAS essas perguntas, sao apenas alguns exemplos. O importante é você começar a ter uma idéia de como era a década de 1950 nos Estados Unidos por um lado e pelo outro lado, no Brasil.

Bom trabalho!

Complemente agora a sua pesquisa, e veja, por exemplo,

o que aconteceu com Getúlio Vargas;

o que aconteceu a nível de futebol;

quem foi JK;

o que é a CEE que foi fundada nos anos ’50;

o que aconteceu em Cuba, na Coréia, no Vietna, ou na (entao) Uniao Soviética;

o que aconteceu a nível de ciência e tecnologia…

Some of your results:

O Brasil e o mundo nos anos ’50:

“política e conflitos” / “guerras e conflitos” / “Populismo e metas desenvolvimentistas no Brasil”

“Com o fim dos anos da guerra e do racionamento de tecidos, a mulher dos anos ’50 se tornou mais feminina e glamorosa, de acordo com a moda lançada  pelo “New Look”, de Christian Dior, em 1947.”

Photo Session: “A atriz Scarlett Johansson encarnou uma diva dos anos 50, a la Marilyn Monroe, em um ensaio para a Vogue russa. A bela aparece toda linda, com olhos desenhados com delineador, cachos e batom vermelho.”

Adjectives + Music: “I AM”

26 Jan

“I AM” – Hillary Duff

Identify all the ADJECTIVES in the song!

(Lyrics:)
I’m an angel, I’m a devil
I am sometimes in between
I’m bad as it can get
And good as it can be
Sometimes I’m a million colors
Sometimes I’m black and white
I am all extremes
Try to figure me out, you never can
There’s so many things I am

I am special
I am beautiful
I am wonderful
And powerful
Unstoppable
Sometimes I’m miserable
Sometimes I’m pitiful
But that’s so typical of all the things I am

I’m someone filled with self-belief
I’m haunted by self-doubt
I’ve got all the answers
I’ve got nothing figured out
I like to be by myself
I hate to be alone
I’m up and I am down
But that’s part of the thrill
Part of the plan
Part of all of the things I am

I am special
I am beautiful
I am wonderful
And powerful
Unstoppable
Sometimes I’m miserable
Sometimes I’m pitiful
But that’s so typical of all the things I am

I’m a million contradictions
Sometimes I make no sense
Sometimes I’m perfect
Sometimes I’m a mess
Sometimes I’m not sure who I am

But, I am special
I am beautiful
I am wonderful
And powerful
Unstoppable
Sometimes I’m miserable
Sometimes I’m pitiful
But that’s so typical of all the things I am

I am special
I am beautiful
I am wonderful
And powerful
Unstoppable
Sometimes I’m miserable
Sometimes I’m pitiful
But that’s so typical of all the things I am

Of all the things I am

Sometimes I’m miserable
Sometimes I’m pitiful
But that’s so typical of all the things I am

Of all the things I am

Song: “Hello”

21 Dec

Song: “Hello” by Christina Aguilera

Lyrics:

Oh oh, yeah

Does it ever feel like
No one is with you
No one sees it your way
Everyone’s against you

But it’s your life
Gotta keep the faith
Hold your vision
You will find your way, yeah

Ah, yeah, oh yeah

I may not fit the mold
May not do what I’m told
I will not be swayed
By the things that they might say

They may have had their doubts
No matter what I’ve found
I have held my ground
Look at me, I’m still around

So dream on, dream on, yeah
Don’t ever let them steer you wrong
When life comes knocking
Gotta keep on rocking
Open that door and
Shout it to the world, singing

Hello, hello, ha
Here I am, here I go
Yeah, yeah
‘Cause I got love to give
And I got dreams to live
So hello, hello
Hello, hello, oh ooh yeah

And if you don’t fit in
Just know your differences
Are beautiful to see
Well, they’re beautiful to me

There’s no one quite like you
Be proud in all you do
You know you’ll find a way
Be who you are, don’t be ashamed now

Shine baby, shine, yeah
‘Cause it’s all in your mind
The life you crave
The love you make, said
It’s all up to you and
You just gotta say

Hello, hello
Here I am, and here I go
Yeah, yeah
I got love to give
And I got dreams to live
So hello, hello
Hello, hello

So don’t you ever let it pass you by
It’s your life
Yeah, yeah, yeah
You gotta dream, you know you gotta try
It’s your time to shine, oh yeah
Said, shout it to the world, sing

Hello, hello, woo
Here I am, here I go
Yeah, yeah
I got love to give
And I got dreams to live
So hello, hello

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Hello, hello, ooh yeah
Hello, hello, oh ooh, yeah
Hello, hello
Hello, hello, yeah
Hello, hello, I said yeah, yeah
Said it goes on and on, yeah yeah
Hello, hello
Hello, hello, ooh
Ooh yeah

Goodbye
See you later
Ciao
Muah
