             Rhythm of the rain

    And let me be alone again

    Looking for a brand new start
    But little does she know that when she left that day
    Along with her she took my heart

    Rain please tell me now does that seem fair
    For her to steal my heart away when she don't care
    I can't love another
    when my heart's somewhere far away

    Rain won't you tell her that I love her so
    Please ask the sun to set her heart a glow
    Rain in her heart and let the love with you start to grow

    Teaching grammar by using songs can make students learn
quickly and remember easily. When students listen to the song
(Input), they can remember the melody at the first. That can
attract students’ interests to learn English and improve their
listening at the same time.
 The teacher teaches the wards and sentences of the song
making students understand the grammar. And then students sing
the song (Output) to make them remember the grammar easily,
and it also can improve their pronunciation.
 This way of teaching grammar by songs fits any age of the
learners. It’s good to learners have examples from songs to know
how to use grammar.
