I want to shoot the whole day down The Telex machine is kept so clean As it types to a waiting world And Mother feels so shocked Father's world is rocked And their thoughts turn to their own little girl Sweet 16 ain't that peachy keen No, it ain't so neat to admit defeat They can see no reasons Cos there are no reasons What reason do you need to be shown Tell me why I don't like Mondays... I want to shoot the whole day down And all the playing's stopped in the playground now She wants to play with her toys a while And school's out early and soon we'll be learning And the lesson today is how to die And then the bullhorn crackles and the captain crackles With the problems and the how's and why's And he can see no reasons Cos there are no reasons What reason do you need to die The silicon chip inside her head Gets switched to overload And nobody's gonna go to school today She's going to make them stay at home And daddy doesn't understand it He always said she was as good as gold And he can see no reason Cos there are no reasons What reason do you need to be shown Tell me why I don't like Mondays...

30 Just Like Heaven – The Cure For students

31 Just Like Heaven – The Cure "Show me how you do that thing The one that makes me dream" she said "The one that makes me ask" she said And threw her arms around my neck "Show me how you do it And I promise you I promise that I'll spend a day with you I'll spend a day with you" Spinning on that silly bed I missed the place and missed the bed And screamed of all the different days I had To make her know "Where are you on fathers day?" she said "Why won't you ever go one time in Liverpool That I'm in Liverpool" You, soft and only You, often lonely You, strangers and girls Dancing in the deep sea oceans Wishing for a daughter You're just like a dream Daylight hit me into shape I must have been a sheep agraze I moved my lips to breathe her name I opened up my eyes And found my shelf at home at home At home upon a raging seat That stole the lonely girl I loved And drowned her sleep inside of me You, soft and only You, often lonely You, dressed like heaven

32 Just Like Heaven – The Cure For teachers

33 Just Like Heaven – The Cure "Show me how you do that trick The one that makes me scream she said "The one that makes me laugh she said And threw her arms around my neck "Show me how you do it And I promise you, I promise that I'll run away with you I'll run away with you" Spinning on that dizzy edge I kissed her face and kissed her head And dreamed of all the different ways I had to make her glow "Why are you so far away?" she said "Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you That I'm in love with you You, soft and only, You, l ost and lonely You, strange as angels Dancing in the deepest oceans Twisting in the water You're just like a dream Daylight licked me into shape I must have been asleep for days And moving lips to breathe her name I opened up my eyes And found myself alone alone Alone above a raging sea That stole the only girl I loved And drowned her deep inside of me You, soft and only You, lost and lonely You, just like heaven

34 So what does Robert have to say to us? Show me! Get proof! I think... elicit instructions to obvious tasks do student-centred examples check meaning precisely (CCQs/pictures/realia) ask students give reasons for answers in feedback (why) get students to repeat corrected language accurately look for evidence in your lessons when reflecting on them Just Like Heaven – The Cure
