Count On Me

Today's song is about friendship. We all have seen some posters with clown images and maxims by Rabindranath Tagore about friendship and when we can count on a friend. Bruno Mars's Count On Me is about friends in need. 
Daniel M. wants to share his choice with the following tasks:

1. Complete the sentences with the words or contractions you hear.

-_ you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea
-I’ll sail the world to find _
-If you _ find yourself lost in the dark and you can’t see
-I’_ be the light to guide you
-Find out what we’_ made of
-When we are __ to help our friends in need.

[Minute 0:04-0:36]

2. Listen the chorus and write in your notebook if  your friends have ever helped you in a troublesome situation.
[Minute 0:37-0:59]

3. Identify the tenses of the following verbs of each sentence.

-I’ll be there.

-I can count on you.

-Because that’s what friends are supposed to do.

-You’ll always have my shoulder when you cry.

The following glossary can help you with the understanding of the song:

-Stuck: Atascado, a la deriva.
-Sail: Navegar.
-Guide: Guiar.
-Tossin’: Sacudir
-Turnin’: Voltear, girar.
-Fall asleep: conciliar el sueño.
-Beside: Sinónimo de next to, (al lado).
-‘Cause=Because: Porque.
-Tenses: Tiempo verbal.
-Chorus: Estribillo
