Song for did/didn īt (or contemporary past simple song?)
 
Hi dear people,
I need a song to enforce questions/negative sentences in past simple. My students are 12 yrs old (but consider themselves grown ups ;) and pre-intermedeate in level . Ideally it would have īdid ī but a good past simple song will do as well, I can make īdid ī exercises myself..
Any ideas anyone?

I have used the Beatleīs song - No Reply - and found that it worked well.

I īve just put a WS online on a song "sunday with a flu" which is quite good to start with.  There are a few others anyway so you can just choose the one that most suits your students.

I’M LOOKING THROUGH YOU   by The Beatles

I īm looking through you, where did you go 
I thought I knew you, what did I know
You don īt look different, but you have changed 
I īm looking through you, you īre not the same 

Your lips are moving, I cannot hear
Your voice is soothing, but the words aren īt clear
You don īt sound different, I īve learned the game.
I īm looking through you, you īre not the same

Why, tell me why, did you not treat me right? 
Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight 

You īre thinking of me, the same old way
You were above me, but not today
The only difference is you īre down there
I īm looking through you, and you īre nowhere

Why, tell me why, did you not treat me right? 
Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight 

I īm looking through you, where did you go 
I thought I knew you, what did I know 
You don īt look different, but you have changed
I īm looking through you, you īre not the same 

Yeah! Oh baby you changed!
Aah! I īm looking through you!
Yeah! I īm looking through you!
You changed, you changed, you changed!

It īs old but it does have the īdid ī

Here īs a newer song for You by Nick Lachey- Did I ever tell you .

I think it has what you need in it  ;-) about 8 īdid words.

Mini 9. I usually never use esl songs but this one really is funny. I might use it next year to start the subject of past tense with! (downloaded it already)
