Whitney Houston – szókincs, videók, igeidős feladat, dalszöveg

Whitney Houston idén 10 éve, 2012. február 11-én örökre távozott. Dolly Parton idézi fel közös munkájuk emlékét.

A videó megnézése után egészítsétek ki a szöveget a zárójelben lévő igék megfelelő igeidőbe tett alakjával.

Dolly Parton describes the moment she heard Whitney Houston’s version of ‘I Will Always Love You’. “They 1._____ (ask) me about the song months before because they 2._____ (look for) a song for that ‘Bodyguard’ movie because the one they 3._____ (plan) to use, someone else covered. So, they were looking for a song and I guess, they 4. _____ (think), well Dolly’s song ‘I Will Always Love You’ might be a good one. So, they 5._____ (ask) me about it. I 6._____ (send) it and I forgot about it.

 I 7._____ (drive) home, in my car from my office, going through Brentwood, a little town out near I live, in Nashville. And I just 8._____ (hear) this voice come on the radio like ‘if I should stay…’. It kind of ring a bell but it 9._____ (not hit) because she was kinda talking it.

And then, all of a sudden, it 10._____ (go) into the ‘I was always love you’ part and I 11._____ (have to) pull off the side of the road, seriously, to listen to it. But it was one of the most overwhelming feelings I’ve ever had. To hear that, done so well, so beautiful, so big. Had no idea I 12._____ (write) a song that could be that important. And I didn’t… I think she just took it and made it so much more than what it would’ve ever been but it 13._____ (be) such a thrill and a joy. As a songwriter, I don’t think I 14._____ (have) ever a greater thrill. Ever.”

“I Will Always Love You”

(originally by Dolly Parton)
(from “The Bodyguard” soundtrack


If I should stay

I would only be in your way

So I’ll go but I know

I’ll think of you every step of the way


And I will always love you

I will always love you


My darling, you



Bittersweet memories

That is all I’m taking with me

So good-bye

Please don’t cry:

We both know I’m not what you, you need


And I… will always love you

I… will always love you

You, ooh


I hope life treats you kind

And I hope you have all you’ve dreamed of

And I’m wishing you joy and happiness

But above all this, I wish you love


And I… will always love you

I will always love you

I will always love you

I will always love you


I will always love you

I, I will always love you



Darling, I love you

I’ll always

I’ll always love you

overwhelming lenyűgöző
thrill érzelemhullám/borzongás
to be in your way utadban lenni
bittersweet memories keserédes emlékek
to treat you kind jól bánni veled
joy and happiness öröm és boldogság
above all this mindezek felett
