Good Time [Weekends]

Weekends are shorts. I read last week that weekdays go that way, Mooooonday, Tueessssdddayy, Weeeedneessday, Thruuuuuusssday and Friday, Sat, Sun. We normally do our favourite things at weekends. We hang out with our friends, go to the cinema (to spend a fortune, lately), read in bed with the short sunspells that enter through your window, walk your dogs by the beach, short naps after a nice meal. Weekends are mostly to have a good time.
This weekend, I have had the chance to visit Oli Novembre's oil mill, their fields with 2,500 olive trees with a Majorcan variety of olive, the Arbequina. This is what it can be read in the dictionary about it "The name comes from the town of Arbeca; however, this variety is said to be actually originally from Palestine.
As well as being a table olive, it is used to produce a highly valued olive oil. Generally, arbequina-based olive oils are more buttery, with a slightly peppery finish.
Arbequina olives have one of the highest concentration of oil and are therefore mostly used for olive oil production. Harvesting is easy since the trees are typically low to the ground and allow for easy hand picking".
Don't hesitate to visit Oli November's web page if you want to know more about "green gold".





Woah-oh-oh-oh,  It's always a good time, Woah-oh-oh-oh,
It's always a good time...   Woke up on the right side of the ­­­_____,
What's up with this spring song inside my head?
Hands up if you're down to___   ____   ____
Cuz it's always a good time.

Slept in all my ______ like I didn't care,  Hopped into a cab, take me anywhere,
I'm in if you're down to get down tonight,  Cuz it's always a good time.

Good morning and good night,  I wake up at twilight,

It's always a good time...

Chorus

Feet down, dropped my _____ in the pool again,

Guillermo F. has also thought about the song. It's poppy and cheesy enough for everybody. Here you are his proposal:


1.Find three mistakes.

Woke up on the left side of the bed,
What's up with this spring song inside my head?
Hands up if you're up to get down tonight,
Cuz it's always a bored time.

Slept in all my clothes like I did care,
Hopped into a cab, take me wherever,
I'm in if you're down to get down tonight,
Cuz it's always a bored time.

2.Listen to the song and write the missing words.

Good …….. and good …….,
I wake up at twilight,
It's gonna be alright,
We don't even have to ……..,
It's ……… a good time...

Slept in all my ………. like I didn't care,
Hopped into a …….., take me anywhere,
I'm in if you're down to ………. down tonight,
Cuz it's always a good ……... .
