If you were a seed, I’d be a pod

Well, by now you must know pretty well what the word seed means, we have learnt about them in Science lessons and in our outings, but I’m not so sure you all know the meaning of “pod” even though some of you have got an Ipod.

Let’s see if images help you guess the hidden words. We are going to listen to a song where all these words appear. In the song, there is a repeated  conditional structure

If I/you  was/were…  a…, You/I’d be a…

First let’s sing and guess the words, then, we’ll talk about grammar.

The song is from a film “Juno” and it is a love song. I hope you like it.

Look at the images and see if you match them with the words.Can you pair them?

honey bee, flower, pod, bride, sway, ocean, wood, fire, nod, wink, tree, moat, castle, rug, seed

Now  try to fill in the blanks in the lyrics of Barry Louis Polisar’s song “All I Want Is You” from the film JUNO. In the grids, the conditional clauses are jumbled, sort them out.

If I was a (1) _________ growing wild and free,

All I’d want is you to be my sweet honey bee.

And if I was (2)_________a growing tall and green,

All I’d want is you to shade me and be my leaves

All I want is you, will you be my(3) _________

Take me by the hand and stand by my(4) _________

All I want is you, will you stay with (5)_________?

Hold me in your arms and sway me like the(6)_________.

If you were a river in the mountains tall,

The rumble of your water would be my call.

If you were the winter, I know I’d be the snow

Just as long as you were with me, when the cold winds blow.

All I want is you, will you be my(3)_________

Take me by the hand and stand by my(4)_________

All I want is you, will you stay with(5) _________?

Hold me in your arms and sway me like the. (6)_________


a) If you were a wink,
  1. I know I’d be a hug
b) If you were a seed,
  1. I’d be a nod
c) If you were the floor,
  1. well I’d be a pod
d) And if you were a kiss,
  1. I’d wanna be the rug

All I want is you, will you be my (3)_________

Take me by the hand and stand by my(4)_________

All I want is you, will you stay with (5)_________?

Hold me in your arms and sway me like the. (6)_________


a) If you were the wood,
  1. I’d be your moat,
b)If you were the love,
  1. I’d be the fire
c) If you were a castle,
  1. I’d be the desire.
d) And if you were the ocean
  1. I’d learn to float.

All I want is you, will you be my(3)_________

Take me by the hand and stand by my(4)_________

All I want is you, will you stay with(5) _________?

Hold me in your arms and sway me like the.(6) _________

Now listen to the song and enjoy!

look at this cloud of words, do you understand all of them?

    If you were a wink, I’d be a nod.
    If you were a seed, well I’d be a pod.
    If you were the floor, I’d wanna be the rug.
    And if you were a kiss, I know I’d be a hug.

    If you were the wood, I’d be the fire.
    If you were the love, I’d be the desire.
    If you were a castle, I’d be your moat,
    And if you were an ocean, I’d learn to float.
    I like the second pair. And the sentence that I like very much is this “All I want is you, will you stay with me?
    Hold me in your arms and sway me like the sea”.
    Think:
    If you were the sky, I’d be the clouds,
    If you were the moon, I’d be the stars,
    If you were the thunder, I’d be the thundercloud,
    If you were the sun, I’d be the daystar.
