As promised, here you have the song (and lyrics) we listened today!
Bars & Melody (B.A.M) - Hopeful Lyrics
Oh-oh-oh Check it out Oh, no Here we go
Please help me God, I feel so alone I'm just a kid, how can I take it on my own? I've cried too many tears, yeah, writing this song Trying to fit in. Where do I belong? I wake up every day, don't wanna leave my home My mamma's askin' me why I'm always alone Too scared to say, too scared to holler I'm walking to school with sweat around my collar I'm just a kid, I don't want no stress My nerves are bad, my life's a mess The names you call me, they hurt real bad I want to tell my Mom She's havin' trouble with my Dad I feel so trapped, there's nowhere to turn Come to school Don't wanna fight I wanna learn So please mister Bully Tell me what I've done You know I have no Dad I'm livin' with my Mom
Just be hopeful, yes, I am Hopeful for today Take this music and use it Let it take you away And be hopeful, hopeful And He'll make a way I know it ain't easy but that's okay Just be hopeful
Why do you trip every single day? I didn't ask to be born but now I have to pay
I ain't got no money, you take all I have When I give it to you, I search through my bags I feel so scared when you shut me down You kick me, punch me, throw me to the ground When I ask you, yo, what have I done? You hit me again, and make fun of my Mom!
I'm hopeful, yes, I am Hopeful for today Take this music and use it Let it take you away And be hopeful, hopeful And He'll make a way I know it ain't easy, but that's okay Just be hopeful
What I wear is all I have We lost our home, I'm livin' from a bag Yo mister Bully, help me please I'm flesh and blood, accept me please Hey mister Bully, I don't know what to do My mind, it can't explain what I did to you Mister Bully, take in all my please Every single day you bring me to my knees
Hopeful, yes, I am Hopeful for today Take this music and use it Let it take you away And be hopeful, hopeful And He'll make a way I know it ain't easy, but, that's okay Just be hopeful.
Hoy Cristina ha compartido con nosotros un trabajo de investigación muy interesante sobre la experiencia de vida de una chica que puede parecerse a Agust (el protagonista de nuestros minutos literarios). Os dejamos aquí la presentación y el vídeo de Cris.
Antybullying Week is an annual event in many English speaking countries in the third week of November (this year its 16th-20th of November) which aims to raise awarness of bullying, help to prevent it and to respond to it in the best way possible. We, Gaudemies, also wanted to participate and we talked about bullying in our That's English classes. Below you will find the presentation we saw in class, this years UK #antibullyingweek2015 promo video and the interactive video where you can pick up an option of behalf of the victim, bully or friends. Feel free to vary your options each time you watch this video.
And remeber, this week we are going to work on antybullying poem, skit and poster. Enjoy your week!
