Present Simple. Grammar with songs.


My youngest students (1º eso) also want to hear her voice.
"All The Man That I Need" is a song easy to understand.

A. We are working with the present tense now, so think of the possible verbs Whitney uses and fill the blanks.

"All The Man That I Need"
I used to cry myself to sleep at night
But that was all before he came
I thought love had to hurt to turn out right
But now he's here
It's not the same, it's not the same
[Chorus:]
He .......... me up
He .......... me love
More love than I've ever seen
He's all I've got,
He's all I've got in this world
But he's all the man that I .............
And in the morning when I .............. his eyes
He takes me down and ............. me slow
And in the evening when the moon is high
He ............. me close and won't let go
He won't let go
[chorus]
Now watch the video and check your answers.

B. Find all the present simple forms. Then write those forms to make negative and interrogative sentences.
