Walking in the Air – Aled Jones

We’re walking in the air
We’re floating in the moonlit’sky
The people far below are sleeping as we fly

I’m holding very tight
I’m riding in the midnight blue
I’m finding I can fly so high above with you

Far across the world
The villages go by like dreams
The rivers and the hills
The forests and the streams

Children gaze open mouthed
Taken by surprise
Nobody down below believes their eyes

We’re surfing in the air
We’re swimming in the frozen sky
We’re drifting over icy
Mountains floating by

Suddenly swooping low on an ocean deep
Arousing of a mighty monster from its sleep

We’re walking in the air
We’re dancing in the midnight sky
And everyone who sees us greets us as we fly

We’re walking in the air
We’re walking in the air

Don’t Worry Be Happy

My son woke up this morning singing this, the obvious result of a great English lesson. I must use it in one of my own. 🙂

Maybe It’s Because I’m a Londoner

Here is one of London’s most famous ditties.  It is dedicated to one of my Opčina classes, who recently sang it to me as a surprise. Well done, kids. 🙂

Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love London so
Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I think of her wherever I go

I get a funny feeling inside of me
When walking up and down
Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love London Town

Dropkick Murphys – Workers’ Song

Workers’ Song Lyrics.

The Lambeth Walk

Anytime you’re Lambeth way
Any evening, any day,
You’ll find us all doin’ the Lambeth walk.

Ev’ry little Lambeth gal
With her little Lambeth pal,
You’ll find ’em all doin’ the Lambeth walk.

Ev’rything’s free and easy,
Do as you darn well pleasey,
Why don’t you make your way there,
So there, stay there,

Once you get down Lambeth way,
Ev’ry evening, ev’ry day,
You’ll find yourself doin’ the Lambeth walk.

Diana Krall – Pick Yourself Up

Nothing’s impossible I have found
For when my chin is on the ground
I pick myself up, dust myself off, and start all over again

Don’t lose your confidence if you slip
Be grateful for a pleasant trip
And pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again

Work like a soul inspired till the battle of the day is won
You may be sick and tired, but you’ll be a man my son
Don’t you remember the famous men who had to fall to rise again?
They pick themselves up, dust themselves off and start all over again

Work like a soul inspired till the battle of the day is won
You may be sick and tired, but you’ll be a man my son
Don’t you remember the famous men who had to fall to rise again?
They pick themselves up, dust themselves off and start all over again

Start all over again

We Found Love – Acoustic Cover by Sofi De La Torre

Yellow diamonds in the light

And we’re standing side by side

As your shadow crosses mine

What it takes to come alive

It’s the way I’m feeling I just can’t deny

But I’ve gotta let it go

We found love in a hopeless place

We found love in a hopeless place

We found love in a hopeless place

We found love in a hopeless place

Shine a light through an open door

Love and life I will divide

Turn away cause I need you more

Feel the heartbeat in my mind

It’s the way I’m feeling I just can’t deny

But I’ve gotta let it go

We found love in a hopeless place

We found love in a hopeless place

We found love in a hopeless place

We found love in a hopeless place

Yellow diamonds in the light

And we’re standing side by side

John Lennon – Happy Christmas (War is Over)

The words written in bold are incorrect. Can you correct them?

So this is Christmas
And what have you thumbed
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have a run
The near and the dear ones
The cold and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any beer

And so this is Christmas
For weak and for Kong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so strong
And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For mellow and dead ones
Let’s stop all the fight

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any beer

And so this is Christmas
And what have we thumbed
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have a run
The near and the dear ones
The cold and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any beer

War is over
If you want it
War is over
Now…
