Roar

Katie Perry

I used to bite my song and hold my breath


Scared to rock the house and make a mess
So I sat quietly, agree gently
I guess that I forgot I had a voice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I stood for nothing, so I fell for anything
You helped me down, but I got up (HEY!)
Already brushing off the coast
You hear my noice, you hear that sound
Like thunder gonna shake the grass
You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)
Get ready 'cause I've had too much
I see it all, I see it now
[Chorus:]
I got the eye of the tiger, a lighter, dancing through the night
'Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me for
Louder, louder than a lion
'Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar

Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh
You're

oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh
gonna hear me roar

Now I'm foating like a butterfy


Stinging like a bee I earned my stripes
I went from zero, to my own hero
You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, you hear that sound
Like thunder gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)
Get ready 'cause I've had enough
I see it all, I see it now
[Chorus:]

Katie Perry

I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath


Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sat quietly, agree politely
I guess that I forgot I had a choice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything
You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, you hear that sound
Like thunder gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)
Get ready 'cause I've had enough
I see it all, I see it now
[Chorus:]
I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire
'Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
'Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar
Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh
You're

oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh
gonna hear me roar

Now I'm foating like a butterfy


Stinging like a bee I earned my stripes
I went from zero, to my own hero
You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, you hear that sound
Like thunder gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)
Get ready 'cause I've had enough
I see it all, I see it now
[Chorus:]

Conclusion
E-tools provide teachers a wide variety of
resources to promote students participation,
comprehension and self learning.
In the end no matter how good teachers are
using technology,what really counts is how
teachers can motivate and interest students
in communicating and creating their own
products as and evidence of achievement
using the target language.
