        Note: This song can also be presented as a simple activity to very young students. Teach

    boat                          land *                        play *                        sky *
    captain *                     live *                        sail *                        water
    door *                        love                          save                          waves *
    drop *                        man *                         sea *                         window

    2) Tell the students the title of the song. Ask them to predict which of the words will be in the
       song.

    3) Play the song and students tick the words they hear (the words marked with an asterisk
       are in the song).

    4) Give each student a copy of the worksheet. Before playing the song ask them to try to
       rewrite the words in the correct order, in pairs or groups. (Note: the word beginning with a
       Capital letter is the first in each line). Make this into a game: the winners are the group
       who gets the most lines correct.

    5) Play the complete song. Students correct their answers to 4).

    6) Play the song again, pausing after each line, and replaying as often as necessary.

                                        In the town where I was born
                                        Lived a man who sailed to sea
                                           And he told us of his life
                                          In the land of submarines
                                          So we sailed up to the sun
                                         Till we found a sea of green
                                       And we lived beneath the waves
                                           in our yellow submarine

                                      We all live in a yellow submarine
