I saw her standing there (song)

Here's how my class VII3 sang a song called 'I saw her standing there' in June 2006:

The song was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and recorded by The Beatles in 1963.

Here are the lyrics:

Well, she was just seventeen,
You know what I mean,
And the way she looked 
Was way beyond compare.
So how could I dance with another 
When I saw her standing there?

Well, she looked at me, 
And I, I could see
That before too long 
I'd fall in love with her.
No, she wouldn't dance with another 
When I saw her standing there.

Chorus
Well, my heart went "boom,"
When I crossed that room,
And I held her hand in mine.

Oh, we danced through the night,
And we held each other tight,
And before too long 
I fell in love with her.
Now I'll never dance with another 
Since I saw her standing there.
 
Chorus

We used some of these activities as warmers and follow-ups:
- Listen to the song and find out if a boy or girl is singing, where the two met, what happened, how they feel about each other now.
- Explain some of the expressions (e.g. The way she looked was way beyond compare = She looked beautiful).
- Identify the verbs in the past simple, regular and irregular.
