Parklife

Listen to the song 'Parklife' by the Brit pop group Blur and complete the gaps missing in the lyrics below while listening. It really is quite amazing how something as everyday as listening to song lyrics can improve overall listening comprehension skills. If you're feeling particularly clever you could try and guess the missing words from their context before you listen!

  


 

 

Confidence is a preference for the habitual voyeur of what is   as (parklife)
And morning soup can be avoided if you take a route   through what is known as (parklife)
John's got brewers droop he gets intimidated by the   pigeons
They love a bit of it (parklife)
Who's that gut lord marching... you should cut   on your porklife mate... get some exercise

[Chorus]
All the people
So many people
The all go hand in hand
Hand in hand throught their parklife

Know what I mean
I get up when I want except on Wednesdays when I get rudely awakened by the  
(Parklife)
I put my trousers on, have a cup of tea and I think about   the house (parklife)
I feed the pigeons I sometimes feed the sparrows too it gives me a sense of   wellbeing (parklife)
And then I'm happy for the rest of the day safe in the knowledge there will always be a bit of my   devoted to it (parklife)

[Chorus]

Parklife (parklife)
Parklife (parklife)

It's got nothing to do with 'vorsprung durch technik' (progress through technology) you know
And it's not about you   who go round and round and round
Parklife (parklife)

[Chorus x 2]
