... be different

let's call the whole thing off

let's call the whole thing off

  (Listen)

Things have come to a pretty pass
Our romance is growing flat,
For you like this and the other
While I go for this and that,
Goodness knows what the end will be
Oh I don't know where I'm at
It looks as if we two will never be one
Something must be done:
You say either and I say either,
You say neither and I say neither
Either, either
Neither, neither
Let's call the whole thing off.

 

You like potato and I like potahto
You like tomato and I like tomahto
Potato, potahto, 
Tomato, tomahto.
Let's call the whole thing of
But oh, if we call the whole thing off
Then we must part
and oh, if we ever part, then that might break my heart.

 

So if you like pyjamas
and I like pyjahmas,
I'll wear pyjamas 
and give up pyajahmas
for we know we need each other so
we better call the whole thing off
let's call the whole thing off.

 

You say laughter and I say larfter
You say after and I say arfter
Laughter, larfter
after arfter
Let's call the whole thing off,
You like vanilla and I say vanella
you saspiralla, and I saspirella
vanilla vanella
chocolate strawberry
let's call the whole thing of
but oh if we call the whole thing of
then we must part
and oh, if we ever part,
then that might break my heart.

 

So if you go for oysters
and I go for ersters
I'll order oysters 
and cancel the ersters
for we know we need each other
we better call the calling off off,
let's call the whole thing off.

I say father, and you say pater,
I saw mother and you say mater
Pater, mater
Uncle, auntie
let's call the whole thing off.

 

I like bananas and you like banahnahs
I say
Havana and I get Havahnah
Bananas, banahnahs
Havana, Havahnah
Go your way, I'll go mine.

 

So if I go for scallops 
and you go for lobsters,
So all right no contest 
we'll order lobseter
For we know we need each other
we better call the calling off off,
let's call the whole thing off.

Moitas grazas polos vosos comentarios. A verdade é que a min tamén me chamou a atención esta canción, e supoño que é algo que se lles pode introducir ós rapaces. Penso que unha cousa boa é achegarlles todo tipo material real e que se diferencie ben do que adoitan eles a ter preto.

Non sei se os nenos están ou non cansos das BSO de Disney, pero eu, dende logo, si. Usar ós Beatles, a Pink Floyd, a Elton John (con algo setenteiro), ós Rolling Stones...pode ser moito máis divertido. E ademais pode facer que empecen a collerlle gusto a unha música menos ñoña (non é por nada pero a factoría Disney é toda unha fonte de cursilerías e maniqueismos). Eu prefiro empregar música e pelis algo distintas, onde os príncipes poidan ser malos, os ogros bos, as mulleres saiban defenderse soas,en fin, onde haxa personaxes que non respondan a patróns presestablecidos e onde todo poida ser posible, por que non?

¡Hola!
Lo primero que pensé cuando escuché la canción fue ¡qué divertido puede ser utilizarla en clase! ¿No estarán cansados de BSO de pelis de Disney?
Bicos mil.
