Song: Another Day (Paul McCartney)

This is one of Paul McCartney's biggest hits with his post-Beatles band, Wings. It talks about the life of a girl. Listen to the song and choose the correct verbs in the lyrics (check 'comments' for the correct answers). Then try some pronunciation and grammar activities!



Every day she has/takes a morning bath, she wets/dries her hair
Wraps/Puts a towel 'round her as she's heading for the bedroom chair
I'ts just another day
Slippin' into stockings, steppin' into/puttin' on shoes
Dippin' in the pocket of her raincoat
It's just another day

At the office where the papers pile/grow she has/takes a break
Drinks/Makes another coffee and she finds it hard to stay awake
It's just another day It's just another day It's just another day

So sad, so sad, sometimes she feels/is so sad
Alone in the apartment she'd dwell
Till the man of her dreams comes/arrives to break the spell
Ah, stay, don't stand her up
And he comes, and he stays, but he leaves the next day
So sad... Sometimes she feels so sad

As she writes/posts another letter to the sound of five
People gather 'round her and she finds it hard to stay alive
It's just another day It's just another day It's just another day

So sad, so sad, sometimes she feels so sad...

Every day she has/takes a morning bath, she wets/dries her hair
Wraps a towel 'round her as she's heading for the bedroom chair
I'ts just another day It's just another day It's just another day

This is one of my favourite songs and I didn`t know it was by Wings. I thought it was The Beatles'.
I like the way you link your blog to a wiki and to external pages to offer extra practice to your students.
You have a great blog.
Congratulations!

Hi Claudia!
This is one of my favourite songs too! Too bad McCartney doesn't write songs like this one anymore...
Thank you for your kind words,I'm having a great time putting the blog together for - and with - the students!
A big hug from Brazil!
