1. LEMON TREE – FOOL’S GARDEN

LEMON TREE

I’m ________ here in the ________ room
It’s just another rainy Sunday afternoon
I’m ________ my time
I got nothing to do
I’m ________ around
I’m ________ for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

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

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________ 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 ________ here
I miss the power
I’d like to go out ________ a shower
But there’s a heavy cloud inside my head
I feel so tired
Put myself into bed
While 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 ________ around in the desert of joy
Baby anyhow I’ll get another toy
And everything will happen and you wonder

2. TOM’S DINER – SUZANNE VEGA

I ……………………………………./In the morning/At the diner/On the corner

I ……………………………………./At the counter/For the man/To pour the coffee

And he fills it/Only halfway/And before/I even argue

He ……………………………………./Out the window/At somebody/……………………………………. in
“It is always/Nice to see you”/Says the man/Behind the counter

To the woman/Who has come in/She ……………………………………./Her umbrella

And I look/The other way/As they ……………………………………./Their hellos

I ……………………………………./Not to see them/And Instead/I pour the milk

I open/Up the paper/There’s a story/Of an actor

Who had died/While he was ……………………………………./He was no one/I had heard of

And I……………………………………./To the horoscope/And looking/For the funnies

When I ……………………………………./Someone ……………………………………. me
And so I raise my head

There’s a woman/On the outside/……………………………………. inside/Does she see me?

No she does not/Really see me/Cause she sees/Her own reflection

And I ……………………………………./Not to notice/That she’s hitch……………../Up her skirt

And while she’s/Straighten………….. her stockings/Her hair/……………………………………. wet

Oh, this rain/It will continue/Through the morning/As I …………………………………….

To the bells/Of the cathedral/I ……………………………………./Of your voice…

And of the midnight picnic/Once upon a time/Before the rain began…

I finish up my coffee/It’s time to catch the train

ALFIE – Lily Allen

NOTICE LILY’S ACCENT. SHE DOESN’T SING IN A FALSE AMERICAN ACCENT LIKE SO MANY BRITISH SINGERS. HER ACCENT IS TYPICALLY “ESTUARY ENGLISH” or “COCKNEY”. SHE HARDLY PRONOUNCES HER “t’s”, FOR INSTANCE. THIS IS VERY TYPICAL FEATURE OF BOTH ACCENTS.

Binomials/Idiomatic pairs/Two-part expressions

Many students have difficulty recognizing and remembering idioms. Here’s a tip for you:

When you are learning a new idiom, say it out loud a few times. Then, say it in several different sentences – push yourself to keep trying new ways of using it. The more you say it, the easier it is to remember. This is how many salespeople and politicians learn people’s names – don’t say it in your head, say it out loud!

Another tip is to try and visualise the idiom in pictures. For example:

Sink or swim

Bread and butter

Try out your new skill with these special idiomatic pairs!
Some idiomatic pairs are used as nouns and some are used as adjectives, regardless of what kind of words are paired together.

Some pairs that are used like NOUNS:

Odds and Ends
Pins and Needles
Wear and Tear

Some pairs that are used like ADJECTIVES:

Cut and Dried
Free and Easy
Touch and Go

Let’s practice learning “touch and go.” You might notice that although this idiom is used as an adjective, it is formed from two verbs, which makes it particularly tricky. “Touch and go” means precarious, uncertain, maybe even dangerous, and it is used to describe situations in which one must be very careful.

Let’s use it in a few sentences:
It has been touch and go ever since my mother’s operation.
The president announced that the negotiations between the warring factions have been touch and go.
Touch and go situations often arise when approaching an unfamiliar dog.

Look for the meaning of the other idiomatic pairs given and do the same: think of a few sentences for each one. Say them all aloud. It doesn’t take long to learn new idioms in this way, and it ensures that they stick with you.
