We're going to be friends

JACK JOHNSON - WE'RE GOING TO BE FRIENDS 

This is Jack Johnson's cover of the White Stripes' "We're Going To Be Friends", from the album "Sing-A-Longs & Lullabied For The Film Curious George"! 

It is a good song resource to start with at the begining of the new school year. Vocabulary revision, filling the gaps, British vs American English, rhyming, clapping, rythming, strapping, illustrating,... And what's more, very adaptable to any primary level!



Fall is here, hear the yell
Back to school, ring the bell
Brand new shoes, walking blues
Climb the fence, books and pens
I can tell that we are going to be friends
Yes I can tell that we are going to be friends

Walk with me Susie Lee
Through the park and by the tree
We can rest upon the ground
And look at all the bugs we've found
Safely walk to school without a sound
We safely walk to school without a sound

Well here we are no one else
We walk to school all by ourselves
There's dirt on our uniforms
From chasing all the ants and worms
We clean up and now it's time to learn
We clean up and now it's time to learn

Numbers letters learn to spell
Nouns and books and show and tell
Play time we will throw the ball
Then back to class through the hall
The teacher marks our height against the wall
The teacher marks our height against the wall

And we don't notice any time pass
Because we don't notice anything
And we sit side by side in every class
The teacher thinks that I sound funny
But she likes it when you sing

Tonight I'll dream in my bed
While silly thoughts run through my head
Of the bugs and alphabet
And when I wake tomorrow I'll bet
That you and I will walk together again
Because I can tell that we are going to be friends
I can tell that we are going to be friend.
