Let's share here, our song lyric sheets!  I will upload most of mine, many which go with the videos in the discussion - International Singers in English.  Scroll through the pages below.

Also see my 50 Ways to use Music In The Classroom for ideas. 


Here are the complete videos but for info. about each singer go to the discussion.  Also, in our videos tagged "lyrics" -  you can get a lyric sheet with the video and also activity ideas. Also, get our Glee Songbook with videos! Your students will love this and its perfect for a camp or whole course. 



  Also get our Pop Song lyric book with music videos for all the songs.  All you will ever need to teach pop songs in class. 
Most of the time, I do a "foldem" lyric sheet. The student folds the sheet "hotdog" style. Fills in the left and after, checks the answers while listening again.....

A unique version from fans holding lyric cards -Love you like a love song - Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. Why not make a doodle video like this? 


Daydream Believer. fun song and see the literal version - even "funner". 


A nice doodle video example. What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction.  Here's the foldem lyric listening sheet.

Also lyric sheets for Can't Smile Without you and Young Folks.  too excellent songs for using in the classroom for "can/can't" and "if"


Two great animated songs for using with students. Nice and slow, well pronounced language. 

Flightless Bird, American Mouth - Iron and Wine

The Way I Am - Ingrid Michaelson


A great song for teaching "IF"  - If you like pina coladas.  A catchy classic . Get students to retell the story of the song. 


The songs never end... hi David!

Hey all, I really really love the idea of doing this with my kids but I have a problem which I'm wondering if anyone can see a way around? I'm teaching in China and every week I teach 18 different clases with an average of about 30 kids a class. How can me, just one teacher collaberate this. I cant get my head around the shear scale of trying to do this with around 600 students under my wings.

Any brilliant ideas, very gratefully received. Im always butting up with this problem as with many great lesson ideas here you need paper or print worksheets which my concious wont let me do 600 every week.

David, love the the site...Draw much insiration here

I should mention I do have my own classroom with full multimedia, smart board etc

Thanks all


Hi Sue,

Lots you can still do and agree - less paper/photocophing is better. One of the signs of poor teaching that I've always used is an overheated photocopier!   

I think there are a lot of teachers in a similar situation as yourself and I'd suggest after choosing a song you'd like to do (and I have even in the past used a Request box where students can request a song for study) - start by playing Lastonestanding.   Choose 5 or 6 often repeated words from the song and play it. Students sit up or down when they hear their word. The students standing at the end win. Simple and effective for preteaching a song. 

Next, just put the doc/lyric sheet up on the whiteboard/screen. Students just need to follow along with the song playing (if not an mp3, just play a video and hide the image/video and use just the sound). Students jot down in their workbook , the words for the blanks. You can facilitate this by editing the lyric sheet with numbers.  Make sure afterwards to have some fun and maybe have courageous students try to sing the chorus . I usually play the song again and during the chorus, turn down the music to soft and have students in groups sing over it. Always get students to sing in a group, never alone! They won't hesitate in a group but alone, even if they want to, they'll end up getting teased so don't go there. 

Hope this might help inspire you!  Here's a new song - Anyway.


Day 0 is a great chant to use with students. Student just sing the "Daylight come and me want to go home". 

See the song in kinetic typography and also the film scene. 


Here is a lyric sheet for the classic/famous music video by Dylan - Subterranean Blues.  Students can do their own version with cards! 

Here's another text version.


A cool kinetic typography video - Portal's  Still Alive


The Monty Python - Lumberjack Song is hilarious and use with subtitles

Here's an easy to edit lyric listening sheet for the song. .
