NOBODY - TEFL VERSION




Nobody by the Wonder Girls has been such a huge craze not only in Korea where the girl group came from but in various parts of the world. Almost everybody knows the eye-catching dance steps which made the group a big hit in Youtube.

My students love this song so I decided to make it into a grammar lesson to teach verbs. I’ve made a cloze exercise wherein students will have to supply the gaps with the correct verbs. After completing the cloze exercise, students can sing and dance along. I’m sure your students will enjoy this.

NOBODY
By the Wonder Girls

You Know I still ____ You Baby.
And it will never ____. (Saranghae)

I ____ nobody nobody But You, I want nobody nobody But You
How can I ___ with another, I don't want any other
I want nobody nobody nobody nobody

Why are you ____ to, to make me _____ ya
I ___ what you're thinking
Baby why aren't you listening
How can I just
Just ____ someone else and
_____ you completely
When I ____ you still ____ me

_______ me you're not good enough
My life with you is just too tough
You ____ it's not right so
Just ____ and ____ back boy
How can this be
When we were meant to be

I ____ nobody nobody But You, I want nobody nobody But You
How can I ____ with another, I don't want any other
I want nobody nobody nobody nobody

I want nobody nobody But You, I want nobody nobody But You
How can I be with another, I don't want any other
I want nobody nobody nobody nobody

Why can't we just, just be like this
Cause it's you that I ____ and nothing else until the end
Who else can ever ____ me feel the way I
I ____ when I'm with you, no one will ever ___
______ me you're not good enough
My life with you is just too tough
You ____ me enough so
You know what I ____ boy
Right next to you is where I ____ to be.

I want nobody nobody But You, I want nobody nobody But You
How can I be with another, I don't want any other
I want nobody nobody nobody nobody

I want nobody nobody But You, I want nobody nobody But You
How can I be with another, I don't want any other
I want nobody nobody nobody nobody

I don't want no body, body
I don't want no body, body

Honey you ____ it's you that I want, it's you that I need
Why can't you ____~

I want nobody nobody But You, I want nobody nobody But You
How can I be with another, I don't want any other
I want nobody nobody nobody nobody (2x)

Back to the days when we were so young and wild and free
Nothing else matters other than you and me
So ___ me why can't it be
Please let me ____ my life my way
Why do you ____ me away
I don't ___ nobody nobody nobody nobody but you.
