wanna feel
Real love fill the home that I live in,
'Cos I got too much life
Running thru my veins.
Going to waste
And I need to feel
Real love and the love ever after
I cannot get enough.
I just wanna feel
Real love fill the home that I live in,
I got too much love
Running thru my veins
To go to waste.
I just wanna feel
Real love and the love ever after,
There's a hole in my soul,
You can see it in my face,
It's a real big place.
Come and hold my hand,
I wanna contact the living,
Not sure I understand
This rope I've been given.
Not sure I understand,
Not sure I understand,
Not sure I understand,
Not sure I understand.
Pupils will understand that usual foreign song can include words of colloquial speech, so they have to know them too. After listening to the song. Feel pupils will have to change words into literary language where necessary.
The next activity: Pupils will listen to the song "what a wonderful world" by Louis Armstrong, they'll get copies of lyrics but there'll be gaps in it their task is to fill the gaps with necessary words:
What a wonderful world:
I see ____ of green,
Red _____ too.
I see them ____ for me and you,
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.
I see ____ of blue,

keys: trees, roses, bloom, skies, clouds, sunny, starry, colours, faces, hands, love, babies, learn.
The giving below activity will be interesting for young learners; they have to know the alphabet well already. They will recite such a poem. Each pupil must say only one letter; a teacher the rest:
P Q R S and TUVW and XYZ
[Teacher} This is called the alphabet
Which we never must forget
Letters 26 in all
Backwards now we repeat them all:
The next song "The more we are together" is very simple and can be learned at once.
The more we are together,
together, together
The more we are together
The happier we'll be
For your friends are my friends
and my friends are your friends
The more we het together
the happier we'll be.
Then a teacher tells them to count how-many times a letter "o" was used. The words of so the song can't be given to children. They are to count the letters from the memory.
During English Lessons we can also use limericks, typical English short poems. A teacher can give the pupils limericks how it is transcribed. Pupils have to write the words instead of transcription in order to get all the words.
A rare old bird is a pelican
His [bi:k k n hould m hiz beli k n]
He [k n teik in hiz bi:k]
[in f fu:d for wi:k]
And I'm damned if I know how the [heli k n]
The lady from Twickentham
There was a young lady from Twickencham
She came back from a walk
And she
To sum up we'd like to point out the importance of using songs and poems during English lessons. Poetry isn't just short funny rhymes learned by children in primary school. Songs are not only toped songs added by the authors to their coarse-books. Teachers are able to use poems and songs from different sources. Nowadays we have a truly big variety of both songs and poems, taking into account classical and new ones. These kind of material evokes in the pupils wish to study because songs and poems are undoubtedly very powerful. Stimulus they "speak" right to our souls. Simultaneously include a lot of actions while working over it. First a pupil must if do some two-step thinking process that involves paraphrasing and interpreting. Before a pupil starts interpret lyrics or words of a poem he|she must understand what is said in order to translate it correctly. And it isn't an easy thing. A pupil must understand author's feelings, what he aimed to say by his poem or song. Opinions can differ. In this case pupils are able to express their own understanding, to say what they feel while listening to a song or reading a poem.
In our research work we tried to analyze why it is important not to avoid using songs and poems. Using original ones will be preferable. Pupils learn not only standard language of GB or USA. They also learn about the customs, traditions and habits of the dwellers of the country they learn about their culture. And songs and poems are a part of it. Pupils can touch to the souls of other countries inhabitants. They are able to compare it with Ukrainian ones. It develops pupils' socio-cultural competence.
Pupils' love for music and literature can make them study English so that they'll understand the words of their favourite poet or singer.
Having attended series of lessons at the secondary school we can make the following conclusion:
a) teachers use poems more often than songs;
b) they use poems for warm-up activities, learning vocabulary grammar structures, developing reading skills;
c) they use song for developing listening skills, teaching vocabulary and grammar structures;
d) pupils have great difficulties in understanding songs, that's why songs should be introduced almost at every lesson.
Using poems and songs during English lessons make them brighter, more interesting. So, in our research paper we want to show how teachers can use songs and poems at their lessons. We also analyze what famous educationalists say about influences thatpupils get a while listening to a song or reading a poem. We also present teacher's achievements in using music and poetry at English lessons.
Music and poetry are really big and undiscovered world. Teachers with a help of their pupils can try to discover it, at least for themselves.
