    I’ve done the activity at home (because of our technical problems in class) and I think this website is an excellent instrument to improve our English. The only thing we should take into account is that we don’t have to know the lyric by heart!

    I couldn’t assit to the end of last class and I also have done the activity at home.

    In my opinion the song is about innocence loss and how all of us are educated as lambs in order the system goes on working.

    I don’t like Supertramp because romantics always have seemed to me to be so soft…. But I have to recognize that the lyric is not bad at all.

    Nevertheless, for this kind of lyrics I prefer other ones. For instance, this one from Waterboys describes in a too accurate way our world situation right now: Strange Boat (I’m not able of inserting an hyperlink but you can search yourself easilly in youtube).

    Anyway, I let the lyric below:

    STRANGE BOAT
    WRITERS MIKE SCOTT, ANTHONY THISTLEHWAITE

    We’re sailing on a strange boat
    Heading for a strange shore
    We’re sailing on a strange boat
    Heading for a strange shore
    Carrying the strangest cargo
    That was ever hauled aboard
    We’re sailing on a strange sea
    Blown by a strange wind
    We’re sailing on a strange sea
    Blown by a strange wind
    Carrying the strangest crew, crew
    That ever sinned
    We’re riding in a strange car
    We’re followin’ a strange star
    We’re climbing on the strangest ladder
    That was ever there to climb
