Learn English with Music!

Good news everyone! Did you know that you can learn SO MUCH English just by listening to songs? And if you want to improve your speaking and pronunciation, just sing while you’re listening. Try these songs: I Have to Say I Love You in a Song by Jim Croce and I Wonder by Rodriguez: I can’t find a Youtube video with the lyrics (words) for the Rodriguez song, so I’ve written them below.

Song: I Wonder by Rodriguez

I wonder how many times you’ve been had,
And I wonder how many plans have gone bad.
I wonder how many times you had sex
And I wonder; do you know who’ll be next?
I wonder, I wonder, wonder I do.

I wonder about the love you can’t find
And I wonder about the loneliness that’s mine.
I wonder how much going have you got.
And I wonder about your friends that are not.
I wonder, I wonder, wonder I do.

I wonder about the tears in children’s eyes
And I wonder about the soldier that dies.
I wonder; will this hatred ever end?
I wonder and worry my friend.
I wonder, I wonder, wonder don’t you?

I wonder how many times you been had
And I wonder how many dreams have gone bad.
I wonder how many times you had sex.
And I wonder; do you know who’ll be next?
I wonder, I wonder, wonder I do.

If you can remember the song then you will remember: the Grammar, the Vocabulary, and the Pronunciation. How good is that? Try it. If you don’t like these songs, just listen to songs you like and get the lyrics from Google.

For more modern songs: Don’t You Worry by Swedish House Mafia, or Stay by Rihanna.
