So, it was about time I shared more songs with you…Listening to songs are just a great way of practicing (practiSing, BrE) listening skills and pronunciation, new words and structures you may have already learned somewhere else (in this song: present perfect, and imperatives or commands: do something or don’t do something; speak or don’t speak; eat or don’t eat…And present perfect is used as a past tense to talk about recent things, reciente en el tiempo o algo que aún es reciente en tu cabeza o perdura en ella). Pon atención a la forma de pronunciar I’ve.
Je suis désolé/Lo siento/Ik ben droevig/Sono spiacente /Perdóname
Chorus (=estribillo): I’ve heard it all before (repeat) / I don’t want to hear / I don’t want to know / Please don’t say you’re sorry/ I’ve heard it all before / And I can take care of myself / I don’t want to hear /I don’t want to know / Please don’t say ‘forgive me’/ I‘ve seen it all before / And I can’t take it anymore
You’re not half the man you think you are / Save your words because you‘ve gone too far / I‘ve listened to your lies and all your stories / You’re not half the man you’d like to be
Don’t explain yourself cause talk is cheap / There’s more important things than hear you speak / We stayed because I made it so convenient / Don’t explain yourself you’ll never see
(‘Sorry’ in multiple languages)
And you, have you heard it all before?
