We're Ready to Sing!

Hi guys! Here I am with my first project. The project is Podcasting. This week, me and my friend Esra Seferinoğlu wrote a song about Cinderella. There are two characters,Cinderella and Fairy.The song was written by changing dialogues between them.This song is more suitable for young learners. It's better and easier for them to learn a language in such a funny way. To be honest,we had some difficulties while we were recording our song. As you know,singing is not that easy.You have to sing again from the very beginning if you make even one little mistake. So there were times when we had to rerecord the song. Also, you should make the lyrics fit into the melody. Or the song will be completely nonsense. This was not so easy for us because we had several melodies and we're so indecisive about which melody could fit more with the lyrics. You have to adjust your voice to the song properly and you have to give the emotions of the song to your listeners(even if your audiciences are kids). I think teachers can use this song in their classes. With this song,students will learn more while they're having fun. Through such didactic activities, the students will take pleasure in learning a language. In our recording, Cinderella sings a chant about her sadness upon not going to the ball held in the palace and The Fairy suddenly appears, consoles Cinderella and you will also hear what it says in a chant. You can find lyrics below.

A ball was to held at the palace and while everyone was getting ready to go Cinderella, dressed in old rags, didn’t even dare ask if she also could go. She knew very well whatever stepsisters’ answer would be. The cat murmured and Cinderella sighed ‘’Oh dear, I’m so unhappy’’. Suddenly something amazing happened. There was a burst of light and a fairy appeared.
I’m staying at home to scrub these dirty floors
Wash the dishes and turn down dirty beds
While my sisters are going to the ball
I’m staying at home for cleaning up the hole

Don’t be sorry pretty little girl
Get me a pumpkin bring me seven mice
Do not forget that dear Cinderella
The mice you’ll bring should be alive

I was  dressed in rags and wearing torn clogs
Want to throw my old and dirty clothes
Thanks a billion you beautiful fairy
I just dont believe in this nice surprise                       

Please tell the prince that he would marry you
And be at home before the descent of the sun
Even your cat smiled and said:miaow
Your pretty face will be such a lovely gun
