If I Were a Jungle Animal by Amanda ElleryThe team behind If I Had a Dragon bring us a bold, colorful look at Morton’s latest daydream—a safari! Morton is bored playing baseball all the way in the outfield. But if he were in the jungle, he could be a lion or a zebra or a hippopotamus! Yeah, if he were a jungle animal, then things would be exciting. But maybe too much excitement is too distracting! After all, a ball could be coming right toward him!

Today I have a guest post for you here on Fluent, hopefully giving you insights into language learning through musics in a wholly new way. How about learning about how different languages use grammar to all express a common theme? My guest Paul writes on behalf of Language Trainers, a language tutoring service. You can find some of their resources at languagetrainers. But regardless of whether their fantasies involve romance, riches, or going to the bathroom, these ladies all share one thing in common: their music gives us a great reason to practice the subjunctive.
If I were a boy Even just for a day I'd roll out of bed in the morning And throw on what I wanted then go Drink beer with the guys And chase after girls I'd kick it with who I wanted And I'd never get confronted for it 'Cause they'd stick up for me. If I were a boy I think I could understand How it feels to love a girl I swear I'd be a better man I'd listen to her 'Cause I know how it hurts When you lose the one you wanted 'Cause he's taken you for granted And everything you had got destroyed. If I were a boy I would turn off my phone Tell everyone it's broken So they'd think that I was sleeping alone I'd put myself first And make the rules as I go 'Cause I know that she'd be faithful Waiting for me to come home To come home. It's a little too late for you to come back Say it's just a mistake Think I'd forgive you like that If you thought I would wait for you You thought wrong. But you're just a boy You don't understand And you don't understand, oh How it feels to love a girl someday You wish you were a better man You don't listen to her You don't care how it hurts Until you lose the one you wanted 'Cause you've taken her for granted And everything you have got destroyed But you're just a boy.

I Am... Sasha Fierce
She explores what it would be like if she did all the things he did to her every day. It is the opening ballad of the I Am Sasha Fierce. Most of the lyrics were written by Jean, who was inspired by the break-up of a romantic relationship. Although tempted, Jean refrained from eating pizza because she was dieting. She then thought that if she were a boy, she would have eaten without regret.
