estudando a música Young Folks, de Peter Bjorn and John

Esta música é ideal para se aprender novas expressões e phrasal verbs. Abaixo você terá a letra e, logo após os versos que contém os phrasal verbs e as expressões que nos interessam, você encontrará explicações e, se muito necessário, as traduções. Eu evito as traduções porque eu não considero a melhor forma de se adquirir vocabulário novo. Além de causar dependência, pode tornar esse processo bem mais longo e árduo.

If I told you things I did before
Told you how I used to be
Would you go along with someone like me
GO ALONG: to accompany [someone]. Can I go along? If you're going to the party, can I go along?
If you knew my story word for word
WORD FOR WORD: in the exact words; verbatim. - I memorized the speech, word for word. I can't recall word for word what she told us.
Had all of my history
Would you go along with someone like me

I did before and had my share
It didn't lead nowhere
I would go along with someone like you
It doesn't matter what you did
Who you were hanging with
HANG WITH: to spend or waste time with someone. - Dave spent the afternoon hanging with Don, and neither one got anything done. I'm going down to the corner and hang with the guys.
We could stick around and see this night through
STICK AROUND: to remain nearby. - I think if you’ll stick around, you’ll get a seat sooner or later.

And we don't care about the young folks
CARE ABOUT: to hold someone or something dear; to prize someone or something. - I really care about you. I care very much about my family.
Talkin' 'bout the young style
And we don't care about the old folks
Talkin' 'bout the old style too
And we don't care about their own faults
Talkin' 'bout our own style
All we care 'bout is talking
Talking only me and you

Usually when things has gone this far
People tend to disappear
No one will surprise me unless you do

I can tell there's something goin' on
Hours seems to disappear
Everyone is leaving I'm still with you

It doesn't matter what we do
Where we are going too
We can stick around and see this night through
