I was surfing the net (navegando) and I came across this video: I WILL SURVIVE by Gloria Gaynor.



Listen to it and read the lyrics (letra) below:

At first I was afraid; I was petrified,
Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side,
But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong,
And I grew strong, and I learned how to get along.
So you're back, from outer space
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face,
I should have changed that stupid lock,
I should have made you leave your key,
If I'd known for just one second you'd be back to bother me,
Oh and now GO! Walk out the door! Just turn around now,
'Cause you're not welcome anymore!
Weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbyes,
D' you Think I'd crumble, you think I'd lay down and die?
No, not I, I will survive...oh as long as I know how to love,
I know I am still alive.
I got all my life to live, and I got all my love to give,
I will survive, hey hey!

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart,
Now I am trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart,
I spent oh so many nights just feeling sorry for myself,
I used to cry, but now I hold my head up high,
And you see me, somebody new..I am not that chained up
little person still in love with you, and so you
just felt like dropping in and just expect me to be free,
Now I am saving all my loving for someone who's loving meOh and now GO! Walk out the door! Just turn around now,
'Cause you're not welcome anymore!
Weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbyes,
D' you Think I'd crumble, you think I'd lay down and die?
No, not I, I will survive,..oh as long as I know how to love,
I know I am still alive,
I got all my life to live, and I got all my love to give,
I will survive, oh yeah
!

Oh and now GO! Walk out the door! Just turn around now,
'Cause you're not welcome anymore!
Weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbyes,
D' you Think I'd crumble, you think I'd lay down and die?
No, not I, I will survive,..oh as long as I know how to love,
I know I am still alive,
I got all my life to live, and I got all my love to give,
I will survive, oh yeah!


This song shows the end of a love story.


Pay attention to the phrases in bold. What happened to the couple? Who left who? Who is stronger now? Who has returned home?


How is this song similar to an ARGENTINE TANGO?


Post your comments and get ready for a debate next class.

this song is not in the group of my favourites songs, but is nice.
the song reflex the sentiments of she when the couple was broken.
in my opinion, he was decided finish the couple, and returned to your house.
now she is more strong and is ready for return to make a new couple.
this song is similar to a tango because reflex the sentiments of a person.

bye!

This song is so realistic.
The couple was broken. He left she. The woman leanr to be strong and happy without "he" when the man return.
