Assignment #5 English song

This week i would like to introduce one of my favorite english song. This song came from a Disney movie and it is call "Beauty & the Beast" . I watched this movie when i was 5 years old. The first time i heard it, i fall in love with the song, the rhythm and the lyric. The lyric is beautiful as a poem. I think the lyric should be understand in English because if you translate to Chinese it will be a little strange. The singer of this song is Céline Dion and Peabo Bryson (also the singer of  the "a whole new world"). Céline Dion come from Canada and Peabo Bryson come from America. One of the Céline Dion's famous song is "My heart will go on" the theme of the Titanic. 

The words i learned form this song:
1) rhyme: one of two or more words or phrases that end in the same sounds.
  example:He couldn't think of a rhyme for orange.

2)barely: only just; scarcely; no more than; almost not:
  example: He has barely enough money to live on

3)bend: to force (an object, especially a long or thin one) from a straight form into a                  curved or angular one, or from a curved or angular form into some different                  form
  example: He bent the iron bar as if it had been made of rubber.

Tale as old as time
True as it can be
Barely even friends
Than somebody bends

Just a little change
Small, to say the least
Both a little scared
Neither one prepared
Beauty and the Beast

Ever just the same
Ever a surprise
Ever as before
Ever just as sure
As the sun will arise

Tale as old as time
Tune as old as song
Bettersweet and strange
Finding you can change
Learning you were wrong

Certain as the sun
Rising in the east
Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the beast

link to the music:


  1. Yes, several of the Disney theme songs are very good. Beauty and the beast is definitely one of them. By the way, avoiding "copy & past" from the dictionary. Type it instead, so the format will look better.

  2. Wow, I was surprised you would listen to this type of song.
