Softly with this song, killing me via @YouTube

(Roberta Flack)

This page is one entry or post in this wordpress blog, but it is also a sample of one entry on @moodle a.k.a AULA VIRTUAL for my students of English language. It is not a compulsory thing but an option to get more and more involved in the English world, that is, culture, music, art or even pictures taken from that crazy and motherly web which turned out to be the internet.

I usually choose videos from @YouTube where subtitles in Spanish language are provided. On this occasion the singer is Roberta Flack and the song is well known in our country by a kind of gypsy flamenco version of Pitingo. It is a good point, I think, to include the lyrics-always written language- of the song.

To finish, a picture of the singer would be fine. And there you are.

 

Killing me softly

Sung by Roberta Flack

 

Struming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

killing me softy with his song

killing me softly with his song

telling my whole life

with his words

killing me softly with his song

 

I heard he sang a good song

I heard he had a style

and so i came to see

and listen for a while

 

and there he was this younge boy

a stranger to my eyes

Struming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

killing me softy with his song

killing me softly with his song

telling my whole life

with his words

killing me softly with his song

 

I felt all flushed with fever

Embarrassed by the crowd

I felt he found my letter

and read eachone out loud

I prayed that he would finish

but he just kept right on

Struming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

killing me softy with his song

killing me softly with his song

telling my whole life

with his words

killing me softly with his song

 

he sang as if he knew me

In all my darkness fair

and then he looked right through me

as if i wasn’t there

and he kept on singing

singing clear and strong

Struming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

killing me softy with his song

killing me softly with his song

telling my whole life

with his words

killing me softly with his song

 

ohhhhhhhhhhh oohhhhhhh…lalalal..ohhhh lalaaaaaaa

 

Struming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

killing me softy with his song

killing me softly with his song

telling my whole life

with his words

killing me (softly)

 

he was strumming my pain

yeah he was seing my life

killing me softly with his song

killing em softly with his song

telling my whole life with his words

killing me softly with his song
