The Country Mouse and the City Mouse

by lilium

歌詞:

There was a Country Mouse who loved the country

There was a City Mouse who loved the city

There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse

And they were very good friends

The Country Mouse liked to eat oats and beans

The City Mouse liked to eat cake and cheese

There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse

And they were very good friends

The Country Mouse listened to the bugs and birds

The City Mouse listened to the cars and trucks

There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse

And they were very good friends

The Country Mouse looked at the moon and stars

The City Mouse looked at the signs and lights

There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse

And they were very good friends

The Country Mouse lived near the fields and trees

The City Mouse lived near the shops and streets

There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse

And they were very good friends

The Country Mouse invited the City Mouse

The City Mouse visited the Country Mouse

There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse

And they were very good friends

The Country Mouse showed his friend the country

The City Mouse talked about the city

There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse

And they were very good friends

The Country Mouse said, “Please feel at home”

The City Mouse wanted to go back home

There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse

And they were very good friends

The City Mouse invited the Country Mouse

The Country Mouse visited the City Mouse

There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse

And they were very good friends

The City Mouse showed his friend the city

The Country Mouse was chased by a kitty

There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse

And they were very good friends

The City Mouse said, “Please feel at home”

The Country Mouse wanted to go back home

There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse

And they were very good friends

There was a Country Mouse who loved the country

There was a City Mouse who loved the city

There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse

And they were very good friends

歌曲解析:

這首歌很長,很多段

但其實構造很簡單

整首歌都是用過去式在描述這兩隻老鼠的故事

多唱幾遍歌詞就背起來了,孩子就能很自然地使用was、were及其他動詞的過去式。

每一段的第一句、第二句分別敘述鄉下老鼠和老鼠的住處、喜歡的食物、

所處環境的聽覺、視覺感受

以及互相邀請的經歷和對另一個環境的感受等等

第三句和第四句都一樣,就是

從前有一隻鄉下老鼠和一隻城市老鼠

他們是好朋友!

我們或許也會羨慕別人的生活環境,但也可能更習慣自己的生活環境

但無論如何,不同成長背景、不同喜好的人,都是可以成為好朋友的!

珍惜心意相通的朋友吧!
