Song: 7 years (by Lukas Graham)


What do you think the song is about?
Could you complete the lyrics?

Once I was seven years old, my mama told me,
"Go make __________some friends or you'll be lonely."
Once I was seven years old

It was a big big world, but we thought we were bigger
__________ each other to the limits, we were learning quicker
By eleven smoking herb and drinking __________ liquor
Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure

Once I was eleven years old.
My daddy told me,
"Go get yourself a wife or you'll be lonely."
Once I was eleven years old

I always had that dream like my daddy before me
So I ________ writing songs, I started writing stories
Something about that glory,
Just always seemed to bore me
'Cause only those I __________ love will ever really know me

Once I was twenty years old.
My story got _________
Before the morning sun, when life was lonely
Once I was twenty years old

I only see my goals, I don't believe in _____________
'Cause I know the smallest voices. They can make it major
I got my boys with me at __________ those in favor
And if we don't meet before I leave, I hope I'll see you later

Once I was twenty years old.
My story got told
I was writing about ___________ I saw before me
Once I was twenty years old

Soon we'll be thirty years old,
Our songs have been ____________
We've traveled around the world and we're still ___________
Soon we'll be thirty years old

I'm still learning about life
My woman _________ children for me
So I can sing them all my songs
And I can tell them stories
Most of my boys are with me
Some are still out ____________ glory
And some I had to leave behind
My brother I'm still sorry

Soon I'll be sixty years old, my daddy got sixty-one
Remember life and then your life becomes a __________ one
I made a man so happy when I wrote a letter once
I hope my children come and visit once or twice a month

[2x]
Soon I'll be sixty years old,
Will I think the world is cold
Or will I have a lot of children who can warm me?
Soon I'll be sixty years old

Once I was seven years old, my mama told me,
"Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely."
Once I was seven years old

Once I was seven years old
