3.en.72 Onomatopoeia and slang. No money, but music for the weekend.

IT’S NOT ABOUT THE MONEY, MONEY

AIN’T ABOUT THE CHA-CHING, CHA CHING

AIN’T ABOUT THE BA-BLING, BA-BLING

A choir of fifth graders from a public school, 22 Staten Island, New York, is been followed all over the world after uploading their videos in You Tube.

You can find out more visiting their blog and subscribing to their You Tube channel.

They are great and what is more important they have great fun while singing!

Here you can see the rehearsal for their appearance at their Avery Fisher Hall debut this Sunday. Next week we’ll look at the New York press  for a review. We might be their first fans from Majorca.

In the rehearsal they do a version of of a song byJessie J called Price tag


Listen to them singing and enjoy!

Last year, Molly, taught you some slang with a Black Eyed Pea song, don’t you remember? Bling bling.

The song told you a story about money and losing your soul…and warned you not to sell your soul for bling bling material things. Click here if you want to remember Molly’s lesson and last year post.Black eyed peas

Well, this year, bling bling, appears again in a similar story.

Some of you are practising your rap and,  in order to transmit your feelings to the audience, it is essential to make your words fit your expression and your body language. Pay attention to the kids while they sing.

  1. Do they look as if they feel what they are singing?
  2. what’s their body language?
  3. Do words and gestures go together?
  4. What is the message of the song?
  5. Have you ever sung in a choir?
  6. Would you like to take part in one?

It’s not about the money, money, money
We don’t need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag
Ain’t about the (uh) Cha-Ching Cha-Ching.
Aint about the (yeah) Ba-Bling Ba-Bling
Wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag.

 

Seems like everybody’s got a price,
I wonder how they sleep at night.
When the sale comes first,
And the truth comes second,
Just stop, for a minute and
Smile

Why is everybody so serious
Acting so damn mysterious
Got your shades on your eyes
And your heels so high
That you can’t even have a good time

Everybody look to their left (yeah)
Everybody look to their right (ha)
Can you feel that (yeah)
We’re paying with love tonight

It’s not about the money, money, money
We don’t need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag
Ain’t about the (uh) Cha-Ching Cha-Ching.
Aint about the (yeah) Ba-Bling Ba-Bling
Wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag.

 

Bling bling an onomatopoeia, but it is also slang, which means very informal languageSlang can also refer to vulgar expressions or vulgar and socially taboo language.

7. Can you find any other slang words in the song?

8. Go to PS22 blog and make a comment on their work.

Homework: answer questions 1 to 8 and send them to the blog.

Unfortunately, this year you have no music lessons, so I cannot ask Paquita to rehearse the song with you… but

as the song says:

we ain’t gone to stumble

we gone keep everyone moving their feet

so bring the beat and then everyone sing. (no excuse, the lyrics are in the video)
