ESO1: What Can I Do?


Hi lads! This is one of my favourite songs, by my favourite pop group, The Corrs. They are Sharon, Caroline, Andrea and Jim. They are siblings: one brother and three sisters in the same band! They are from Ireland, so they are Irish. Their unique feature is that they mix Celtic music with pop sounds.

Let's watch their videoclip: "What can I do?". Here you have the lyrics. Complete them with the following words:

fly  -  times -  say -  days -  take 

WHAT CAN I DO? (by The Corrs)

I haven't slept at all in _______ (1)
It's been so long since we've talked 
And I have been here many ________ (2) 
I just don't know what I'm doing wrong 

What can I do to make you love me 
What can I do to make you care 
What can I say to make you feel this 
What can I do to get you there 

There's only so much I can _____ (4)
And I just got to let it go 
And who knows I might feel better 
If I don't try and I don't hope 

What can I do to make you love me 
What can I do to make you care
What can I say to make you feel this 
What can I do to get you there 

No more waiting, no more aching 
No more fighting, no more trying 

Maybe there's nothing more to _____ (4)
And in a funny way I'm calm 
Because the power is not mine 
I'm just gonna let it _____ (5)

What can I do to make you love me 
What can I do to make you care 
What can I say to make you feel this 
What can I do to get you there 

Love me

NOTE: 'What Can I Do?' Sometimes you make me ask this question to myself when I want you to follow the three rules we have in class:
1-raise UP your hand when you want to talk;
2-sit DOWN propperly;
3-use the computer for the lesson (not for other purposes!).
Let's follow them! :)
