Here's a pretty standard German pop song "200 Tage Sommer," from the singer Elif.

A few words to help you understand it:

kriegen = to get (slang)

Ich kriege dich nicht aus meinem Kopf = I can't get you out of my head.

Du machst mein Leben etwas leichter = You make my life a bit lighter.

wiedersehen = to see each other again

So here's a mini German music lesson for you:

1. Watch the video and listen to the song 3 times and see how much you can understand (using the text above to help you).


Haben Sie es 3 Mal geschaut? Wirklich drei mal? OK!


2. Now check your understanding against the full song lyrics (opens in a new window).

3. Listen to the song again with the full lyrics and follow along. Sing along if you can!


Extra challenge:  Can you listen to the song and write out the lyrics? See how much you can write out without looking at the full song lyrics.
