My Boyfriend’s Back

Sugar, Sugar- The Archies

Sugar, ah honey honey

You are my candy girl- Most songs from the 50’s and 60’s talk about how only girls can be sweet.

And you’ve got me wanting you

Honey, ah sugar sugar

You are my candy girl- In a lot of songs the boy refers to his girlfriend as candy.  

And you’ve got me wanting you

 

I just can’t believe the loveliness of loving you

(I just can’t believe it’s true)

I just can’t believe the one to love this feeling to

(I just can’t believe it’s true)

 

Ah sugar, ah honey honey

You are my candy girl- If the gender roles were switched that would be weird because I can’t imagine a girl singing this to her boyfriend. 

And you’ve got me wanting you

Ah honey, ah sugar sugar

You are my candy girl

And you’ve got me wanting you

 

When I kissed you, girl, I knew how sweet a kiss could be

(I know how sweet a kiss can be)

Like the summer sunshine pour your sweetness over me

(Pour your sweetness over me)

 

Sugar, pour a little sugar on it honey

Pour a little sugar on it baby

I’m gonna make your life so sweet, yeah yeah yeah- Pretty much saying that the girls life was boring before she was with her boyfriend. 

Pour a little sugar on it oh yeah

Pour a little sugar on it honey

Pour a little sugar on it baby

I’m gonna make your life so sweet, yeah yeah yeah

Pour a little sugar on it honey

 

Ah sugar, ah honey honey

You are my candy girl

And you’ve got me wanting you

Oh honey, honey, sugar sugar…

You are my candy girl…

 

 

 

  Young love- Sonny James

They say for every boy and girl

There’s just one love in this whole world

And I know I’ve found mine

The heavenly touch of your embrace

Ever in my heart

Young love (young love), first love (first love)

Filled with true devotion

Young love (young love), our love (our love)

We share with deep emotion

Just one kiss from your sweet lips- Every song refers to a girl being sweet.

Will tell me that your love is real

And I can feel that it’s true

We will vow to one another

There will never be another- He never wants to break up with his girlfriend because he refers to their relationship like it was a young love.

Love for you or for me

Young love (young love), first love (first love)

Filled with true devotion

Young love (young love), our love (first love)- Sometimes when young people fall in love they think that they will be with their first love forever and that is a stereotype. 

We share with deep emotion

 

 

 

 Be My Baby- The Ronettes

The night we met I knew I needed you so

And if I had the chance I’d never let you go

So won’t you, please

Oh, since the day I saw you

I have been waiting for you

You know I will adore you ’til eternity

 

So won’t you, please

(Be my, be my baby) Be my little baby- Stereotype that every one calls their significant other baby. And the word baby is still used today in current music.

(Be my, be my baby) Be my baby now

Wha-oh-oh-oh-oh

 

So come on and please

(Be my, be my baby) Be my little baby

(My one and only baby) Say you’ll be my darlin’

(Be my, be my baby) Be my baby now- This song is about a boy being called baby in this era you would expect that the girl is being called baby and not the boy.

Wha-oh-oh-oh

 

(Be my, be my baby) Be my little baby

(My one and only baby) Oh

(Be my, be my baby) Oh

Wha-oh-oh-oh-oh

 

(Be my, be my baby) Oh

(My one and only baby) Oh

(Be my, be my baby) Be my baby now- Why do people like to use the word baby in love songs?

Wha-oh-oh-oh

 

All Shook Up- Elvis Presley

A well I bless my soul

What’s wrong with me?

I’m itching like a man on a fuzzy tree

My friends say I’m actin’ wild as a bug-Stereotype that when you are in love you will become crazy.

I’m in love

I’m all shook up

Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

 

My hands are shaky and my knees are weak

I can’t seem to stand on my own two feet

Who do you thank when you have such luck?

I’m in love

I’m all shook up

Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

 

Please don’t ask me what’s on my mind

I’m a little mixed up, but I’m feelin’ fine

When I’m near that girl that I love best

My heart beats so it scares me to death!

 

She touched my hand what a chill I got

Her lips are like a volcano that’s hot

 I’m proud to say she’s my buttercup- Artists from the 50s and 60s has weird nicknames for their significant other.

I’m in love

I’m all shook up

Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

 

My tongue get tied when I try to speak

My insides shake like a leaf on a tree

There’s only one cure for this body of mine

That’s to have the girl that I love so fine!

 She touched my hand what a chill I got- He gets a chill when she touches his hand, but when they kiss it is like a volcano.   

Her lips are like a volcano that’s hot

I’m proud to say she’s my buttercup- A girl always had a strange nickname in the 50s and 60s songs, but if the roles were reversed and the girl calls the boy a strange nickname it would not end well.  

I’m in love

I’m all shook up

Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

I’m all shook up

 

 

 

Letter to Malcolm

Dear Malcolm,

We both know that we were not the ones who killed our dearest father. When we were all gathered in Macbeth’s castle everybody claimed that they did not kill our father. The problem is that you can’t tell who is telling the truth when everybody is lying. So Whoever is the murder was in Macbeth’s castle playing the innocent. The murder of our father must of had something to gain from his death. It seemed like everybody was talking but had nothing to say. When people talk but they have nothing useful to say it usually means that they have something to hide. I could tell by the way Macbeth was talking that he has a secret that he wants nobody to know about. I heard a rumor that Macbeth is going to Scones to get coronated, but that does not mean that Macbeth is the only suspect here. In my opinion everybody that was in Macbeth’s castle is not off of the suspect list. We cannot talk to anybody and right now nobody is trustworthy the only people that we can trust are each other. If anybody from Scotland comes to your castle in England, and tries to talk to you you must hide from them and keep your guard up. If anybody does come to your castle and tries to talk to you it is most likely because they want something from you. There might be an even worse reason they would come to your castle they might want to murder you too. Since you were supposed to be the next in line for king the person who murdered our father could murder you next.

 

In other news I heard Ross and an old man saying that the night our father was murdered it was the worst night he ever remembered being that bad. That is saying something since he was alive for quite a long time and he should have seen a lot of brutal events and had many kings before our father, but none like the murder of our poor father. That is why I have come to the conclusion that I shall hire spies so that they can keep an eye on your castle in England and the shack that I am staying in here in Ireland. I shall have spies that keep an eye on Scotland too so that the spies can make finding out who the murderer is much faster and easier. Just remember to be safe and don’t talk to anybody who looks suspicious or if they are trying to get something out of you like power. We shall not rest nor be depressed about our dearest father until we find out who the murderer is once and for all.

 

  From your loving brother,

  Donalbain

How Do You Know You Exist?

In the video how do you know you exist? It talks about how we exist and that what if you are a sleep and you are dreaming about everything that has ever happened to you. The video also talks about how you use your senses to see the world. And that only a crazy person can deny the fact that you really exist and the reality of life. This video relates to Sophie’s world because Sophie is taking a philosophy course in which she will have to answer hard questions like how do you know you exist and questions like this will make you wonder. One of the philosophers that Sophie is learning in her course does not believe in trusting your senses and another philosopher that she is learning about thought that your senses were lying to you and that you should never trust them you should only trust facts.

English Final

It is no lie that pain and pride can be found anywhere. Pain and pride is everywhere in people’s lives even when people don’t notice it. Pain and pride will always be feelings that people have to deal with. Pain and pride is be found in many books that people read. The Veldt, Barney, and The Friday that Everything has changed.

In the Veldt by Ray Bradbury George and Lydia found pride in buying a nursery for their kids. “Nothing is too good for our kids,” the parents stated. The parents are proud of their house that they have because the house does everything for them. The story can be related to the reality that is happening in society today. Now everyone wants to find happiness and support with  a non-living object. People are looking for happiness in non-living objects because objects can not judge or betray people. People only let go of the objects because a company comes out with a project that better than what they already have. Society wants people to believe that if a label has new and improved that it is better than it was before. In reality it is the same thing that they used for centuries. People are proud to buy it because they think it will make them a better person. People are proud to use technology because social media gives people an opportunity to post about there successes. The pain with sharing successfulness is that people will feel left out or sad if they didn’t get the same rewards. The pain in the Veldt is that the parents think that a house can raise their children for them. The pain in real life is that people only care about non-living objects. People are to attached to objects that aren’t living that they don’t pay attention to the real people who has feelings. Individuals depend on technology too much. It is painful to see that when people are walking somewheres most of them probably has a phone in their hand. The thing that is painful is that people rely on their phones and we would probably not be able to live without technology.

But nothing’s too good for our children,” George had said.

The pain that is shown in the story Barney is that scientist wants to make Barney better and smarter. This is painful because he is doing experiments on a mouse that can not help himself. The mouse is helpless and can not get out of the scientist’s experiment. The scientist doesn’t know that he made Barney smarter by letting Barney read books. Barney figures out how to write and kills the scientist. The pain in real life is that people often underestimate us. They think that we aren’t good enough to do anything. Most people does not believe in something until they see it for themselves. The pride that is shown in the story is that Barney wrote in the scientist’s journal even though the scientist thought that Barney was not smart enough to do so. Barney proved the scientist wrong by murdering the scientist. Barney murdering the scientist is related to both pain and pride. Barney learning how to write is the pride in the story because he proved the scientist wrong. The scientist knew that Barney could read but he didn’t know that he was able to write or pick up a pen. The pain or tragedy of Barney is that Barney wanted some rats at the end of the story. Barney wanting rats is painful is because we all have the fear of being alone. The question is that are we all actually alone when we are by ourselves? There might be someone or something in the sky watching our every move.

The Veldt and Barney are two very similar stories but they are also different at the same time. Both stories have pain and pride. Both stories show that people have the fear of being alone. Barney connects to how people can not live without people. Where the veldt connects to how people can not live with out technology. These two stories are good with showing human behavior and how people connect to living and non-living objects. This is why people can connect to these two stories because they both have feelings that people deal with everyday.  

Wild Horses

My twin sister and I are always together for everything. She follows me around all the time at school. She always wants to try to get me into trouble. Like that time she convinced me to pretend that our brother was a horse he still hates us for doing that to him. He will never let us live it down. I have said sorry to him about a million times but nothing ever works. He is so stubborn just like my twin sister I think that it would be better if they were twins and I didn’t have a twin at all.

My sister and I have always loved horses ever since we were little girls. That is why we played horse with our little brother. We loved watching horse movies such as Black Beauty. We didn’t live on a farm so we couldn’t play with real horses that is why our brother was the next best thing.

One day we spotted two stallions on the way to school, our brother was happy that we dumped him for the two horses. The two horses were tall, beautiful and they both had really nice hair. We were both happy to play with two very real horses. My twin and I would agree that the two horses are better at playing horse than our brother is that is for sure.

Our horses came over again they always come over to play with us now. We have so much fun chasing each other outside around the yard. We found out that that the two horses are twins too my sister and I were both very happy about that news.

The more I hang out with those two horses the more I realize that I really love horses. I want to play horse for the rest of my life because it is really fun and my sister will definitely agree with me.

Afrika Road Creative assignment

There are many playgrounds with slides but many are not like me, The unwanted slide. Children play on me and they are not like any other children that I have heard of. They rarely smile and they can not stand coming to school even though they have to stay here they grow up. I wish that these kids were like normal little kids playing on slides that aren’t me, not worrying about anything in the world. I never even seen one of these parents and the children doesn’t seem to want to play at all.

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be a different slide. Would everyone want to play with or would I just be forgotten like I am now. Would I see children smiling ,laughing, playing or would they be their miserable selves. People beating them up for being themselves. I really hope that one day they will find happiness and peace.

I want to be a different slide or at least change these kids. I wish the kids could hear me say that I will make them happy. I will make them happy one day but for now I will remain the unwanted slide.

Twitter Essay

Technology has impacted the world over the years and has both negative and positive effects on the environment. Technology distracts people from everyday lives, but is good for scientists to research ways to help the environment. Technology is allowing people to live in a fantasy on social media rather than living in reality. If you want to phone someone you can take out your phone and ask siri to call that person.

People don’t care about how much technology costs anymore they buy a new iPhone because they think it is new and improved. They buy a new phone because everyone else got a new one and apple is making the phone look better than it actually is. In reality it has only gotten bigger and is the same thing as the older ones and it probably has a different charger.

Technology helps the environment, but it can also be dangerous to the environment too. Scientists can help make the environment better with the research that they use.

 

Road to Fort McMurry: Found Poem

The Road To Fort Mcmurry

The smoke is moving fast

The sky is dark and gloomy

It is a very heartbreaking time

People are evacuating their homes

Homes are burning to the ground

Losing personal belongings

Leaving pets at home and hoping that they are rescued

Thoughts are with everyone in Fort McMurray

Hoping that people stay safe
