I heard that you’ve settled down old friend why are you so shy?

never mind I’ll find someone like you

that you found a girl and you’re
it ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the light

married now

I heard that your dreams came true
but I couldn’t stay away I couldn’t fight it
sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead

guess she gave you things I had hoped you’d see my face you’d know how the time flies who would have known how guess she gave you things I had hoped you’d see my face you’d know how the time flies who would have known how guess she gave you things I had hoped you’d see my face you’d know how the time flies who would have known how

I didn’t give to you
and that you’d be reminded that for me it isn’t over

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
don’t forget me I beg I remember you said

I wish nothing but the best for you too
bound by the surprise of our glory days

only yesterday was the time of our lives bittersweet this would taste

we were born and raised in a summer haze

nothing compares no worries or cares

regrets and mistakes they’re memories made

Step 1: You need to cut the photocopy and give out the scrambled text to each student or, if you prefer, they can work in pairs with one text only. It is better to use different colours so the students don’t mix their own text with that of another classmate.

Step 2: Have the students listen to the song (you decide how many times, and if it is necessary to pause during the listening). The text lines are numbered (on the white sheet only) so you should read each number aloud and/or show the number using a small card.

Step 3: Once the students have finished their work check if they have made any mistakes. Now they can paste the small pieces of paper on the page.

Step 4: Work with the vocabulary sheet and ask the students to translate the text (this can be also assigned as homework). There are many different activities you can do, depending on the students’ level and on how much time you have.
