Linking Verbs

Yo! I have a little somethin’
To teach to you.
It’s the linking verb rap
And it’s easy to do!

A linking verb connects
A subject with a noun
And if you’ve done it right,
You can turn it around.

An adjective can be
In the predicated part.
Know what you’re doin’,
Then you’ll be smart!

Look very carefully
And you will see
Most of the verbs
Are forms of “be”

Am, is, are, was, were

These are the past
And present of the verb.

Learn “seem,” “appear,”
And “become,”
Then you will know
That you are done!

Laterne Laterne

Laterne, Laterne, Sonne, Mond und Sterne

Laterne, Laterne, Sonne, Mond und Sterne.
Laterne, Laterne
Sonne, Mond und Sterne
Brenne auf, mein Licht,
Brenne auf, mein Licht
Aber nur meine liebe Laterne nicht.

Laterne, Laterne,
Sonne, Mond und Sterne,
Sperrt ihn ein, den Wind,
Sperrt ihn ein, den Wind,
Er soll warten, bis wir zu Hause sind.

Laterne, Laterne,
Sonne, Mond und Sterne,
Bleibe hell, mein Licht,
Bleibe hell, mein Licht,
Sonst strahlt meine liebe Laterne nicht.
