Once more, Bruno Mars. This time his Grenade.  Teenagers rule. This is their music space where they can listen to their favourite songs as well as learning some English. The idea is that they can prepare the lyrics, by giving them a proper layout so there are no so much chorus repetition. Then they decide on two activities to do over the song and finally they supply their classmates with a glossary of new words and a refreshment on any grammar points already studied in class.

The debate is the following: What would you able to do for someone's else? For a member of your family, a relative, a friend, an acquaintance, or an unknown person. Please think about that and share it with me in class or by comment

Grenade by Bruno Mars

Alfonso C. has thought that you may like to fill in the gaps with these  missing words: Go, flames, understand, anything, car, numb, blade, same, open,

Easy come, easy ___________ That's just how you live, oh
Take, take, take it all But you never give
Should've known you was trouble From the first kiss
Had your eyes wide open Why were they  ___________ ?
(You are supposed to translate this first paragraph in the song)

Gave you all I had
And you tossed it in the trash
You tossed it in the trash, you did

To give me all your love
Is all I ever asked 'cause
What you don't understand is

I'd catch a grenade for ya
Throw my hand on a  ___________  for ya
I'd jump in front of a train for ya
You know I'd do anything for ya

Oh oh, I would go through all of this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes, I would die for you, baby
But you won't do the  ___________  [Chorus]

No, no no

Black, black, black and blue Beat me 'til I'm  ___________ 
Tell the devil I said "hey" When you get back to where you're from

Mad woman, bad woman That's just what you are
Yeah, you'll smile in my face Then rip the brakes out my  ___________ .


If my body was on fire Oh, you'd watch me burn  ___________  in flames
You said you loved me, you're a liar
'Cause you never, ever, ever did baby


Juan Carlos A. has chosen the same song. His work in on a ppp.

What would you do for a classmate? Would you catch a Grenade for him/her?

  1. I think there is kind of a mistake in this sentence: Alfonso C. has thought that you make like to fill in the gaps with these missing words.
    Instead of make, shouldn't it be may? or might? Otherwise it does not make sense for me.

    Great blog by the way, plenty of info for learners (and teachers) of English. Cheers mate!
