One of my favorite bands in the United States is named Cloud Cult. They just played a concert close to my hometown in the U.S., but because I’m still living in Argentina I was bummed (disappointed) I wasn’t able to attend. So, after listening to some of their songs I decided to do a lesson on past simple regular and irregular verbs for everyone. Enjoy!
Although there is no rules about how to change irregular verbs there are some patterns that happen. Really you should memorize, (ughhh, I know), speak, take classes, watch movies, and listen to music as much as possible to get the irregulars down. But below you will see some categories and patterns.
Now Watch The Video and do the exercise:
Below are the lyrics, fill in the spaces:
I _____ grandpa on my transistor radio,
Though he _____ in his bones twenty years ago,
And he ____, “Kid, theres something that I’d like to show you,
Get your things, its time for us to go”
So I ____ my backpack, my flashlight, and a bag of caramel corn,
I ____ my bicycle, and the radio, and I headed on the road, I said
“I’m ready for what I’m about to see, Yup”
I ____ north ’til rain had turned to snow
Through rusty towns and dusty gravel roads
And I ___, “Grandpa, where is this thing you wanted to show me?”
He said, “Kid, you got a long way to go”
So I ____ through canyons, caves and catacombs, I sailed on bicycle boats
I _____ in chapels and brothels, I ____ the nicest folks
I said, “I’m ready for what I’m about to see, Yup”
I heard grandpa on my transistor radio
He said, “Kid, its time for me to go,
And I know that there was something that I _____ to show you,
But its time for you to find it on your own.”
Let me tell you about rage when a signal ____ that day,
Theres nothing out there and I don’t care–its to take my life away
“I’m not ready and I don’t want to see, Nope”
Its been years since I _____ my transistor radio
Yet I keep going to where it seems I’m ______ to go
And I finally ____ what he wanted to show me
Where I’ve been, where I am, is the show
Where I’ve ____, where I am, is the show
Where I’__ been, where I am, is the show
Hope you enjoyed another Lesson and the song. If you like the song you should check out the band, they are pretty under as they say in Argentina but are becoming more popular.
