Analysing-Task-Lean On me

Lean On Me
This is a table chart that our teacher has created for us. We are learning to analyse songs and find the key mean ideas in the text. Hope you enjoy reading.

WALT use our analysing skills.

Part of the song
What is the main idea(s) in this part of the song?
Give an example from the text that supports this idea.
Give another example from the text that supports this idea.
Express your viewpoint by synthesising what you have analysed.
-Do you agree with this part of the song? Why/why not?
Verse 1
The main idea in verse 1 is our lives and to be wise.

Sometimes in our lives”

“But if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow”
We agree because what I think of this verse is that in our lives we struggle and go through hard and tough times but if we think positively we will know that we have tomorrow to look forward to.

We may not have everything we want, but we have what we need.
The main idea in the chorus is that it’s ok to ask for help.
“You just call on me brother, when you need a helpin hand”
“We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on”
We agree with the lyrics of the chorus because it should be ok to ask for help, or help those in need.
Verse 2
The main idea in verse 2 is Share.
“Swallow your pride If I have things
You need to borrow”.
For no one can fill those of your need
That you won’t let show
We agree with verse 2.
We are here to help, just ask.
Verse 3
The main idea in verse 3 is Caring and helping.
“A right up the road,
“I’ll share your load, if you just call me.
Yes we agree with verse 3 because others are capable of doing things that we may not know how to do.

Rap Poem

Touch is my game people thinks it’s lame but when we start the playing their going to feel ashamed and when I do a step a little with the fizzle after this game I’m going to have a sausage sizzle. When I run fast I think of the past when I ever race I never come last but the important thing is never eat a rat you gotta eat healthy or you're going to be fat. When you make curry you put in potatoes never eat too much or you’ll look like play-dough But just remember you got to be sporty don’t be anti or else I’ll tell your mum your just being naughty you gotta eat the right things like breakfast lunch and tea so later in the day you’ll have a lot of energy like my friend Timothy.Also at school I learn language features like  metaphor, alliteration and also my favourite a little personification.By Tupou Kilisimasi
