The Present Continuous tense
with
Fool's Garden

TASK 1. Listen to the song Lemon Tree by Fool's Garden and complete the sentences with the Present Participle to form the Present Continuous tense.

I'm here in a boring room

It's just another rainy Sunday afternoon

I'm my time I got nothing to do
I'm around I'm for you
but nothing ever happens - and I wonder

 

I'm around in my car

I'm too fast I'm too far

I'd like to change my point of view
I feel so lonely I'm for you
but nothing ever happens - and I wonder

 

I wonder how I wonder why

yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky

and all tall that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
I'm my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
and all that I can see is just another lemon-tree

I'm here I miss the power

I'd like to go out, take a shower

but there's a heavy cloud inside my head
I feel so tired put myself into bed

where nothing ever happens - and I wonder

 
Isolation - is not good for me
Isolation - I don't want to sit on a lemon-tree
I'm around in a desert of joy

Baby, anyhow I'll get another toy

and every thing will happen -and you'll wonder

 

 
I wonder how I wonder why

yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky

I'm  my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around

and all that I can see is just another lemon-tree
