It talks about a couples relationship and has some very idiomatic and British slang.
Kate Nash is very popular at the moment in the UK and this song may just be good to introduce discussions on relationships.
Foundation Kate Nash
- This is a girlfriend talking about her boyfriend. How does she feel about him?
- Now listen to the song and match the underlines phrases to the phrases below
Thursday night, every thing's fine, except you've got that look in your eye
when I'm tellin' a story and you find it boring, you're thinking of something to say.
You'll go along with it then drop it and humiliate me in front of our friends.
Then I'll use that voice that you find annoyin' and say something like
"yeah, intelligent input, darlin', why don't you just have another beer then?"
Then you'll call me a bitch and everyone we're with will be embarrassed,
and I won´t give a shit.
My finger tips are holding onto the cracks in our foundation,
and I know that I should let go,but I can't.
And every time we fight I know it's not right,
every time that you're upset and I smile.
I know I should forget, but I can't.
You said I must eat so many lemons,´cause i am so bitter.
I said "I'd rather be with your friends mate 'cause they are much fitter."
Yes, it was childish and you got aggressive,and I must admit that I was a bit scared, but it gives me thrills to wind you up.
Your face is pasty 'cause you've gone and got so wasted, what a surprise.
Don't want to look at your face 'cause it's makin' me sick.
You've gone and got sick on my trainers,
I only got these yesterday.
Oh, my gosh, I cannot be bothered with this.
Well, I'll leave you there 'till the mornin', and I purposely won´t turn the heating on and dear God, I hope I'm not stuck with this one.
( Chorus )
