"I'm thirsty" Remix
by Richard Graham

I'm thirsty. (I'm thirsty.)
Would you like a drink?
Yes, please!
I'm thirsty. (I'm thirsty.)
Would you like a drink?
Yes, please!
Please? Please!

I'd like an orange juice. ( x2 )
A glass of milk. ( x2 )
I'd like a cola. ( x2 )
A lemonade. ( x2 )

( repeat chorus )

I'd like some water. ( x2 )
A cup of tea. ( x2 )
A hot chocolate. ( x2 )
A milkshake. ( x2 )
( repeat chorus )



I'm thirsty! ( Heavy Metal )

I'm thirsty, can I have a drink?
I'm thirsty, can I have a drink, please?

I'd like an orange juice,
A glass of milk
I'd like a cola,
A lemonade.

I'd like an orange juice,
A glass of milk
I'd like a cola,
A lemonade.

Because
I'm thirsty, can I have a drink?
I'm thirsty, can I have a drink, please?

I'd like a coffee,
A cup of tea,
A hot chocolate,
A milkshake.
I'd like a coffee,
A cup of tea,
A hot chocolate,
A banana milkshake!

Because
I'm thirsty, can I have a drink?
I'm thirsty, can I have a drink, please?

In the classroom or at home...

In the "How are you?" song kids learn "I'm hungry", but usually also want to learn "I'm thirsty"!

In the games you can either use the lines from the song e.g. "I'd like a glass of milk" or just use the easy version of "I'd like a milk, I'd like a water etc."

During the song the teacher sings the first line, and the kids sing the "echoes". Gestures are sometimes tricky to do for drinks, but they do help retention of the words. Have a try of some of the ideas below, or even better, ask the kids to think of their own.





I'd like an orange juice, ( oranges falling from a tree)



A glass of milk
( milking a cow!)





I'd like a cola
( opening a can)





A lemonade.
( squeezing lemons)




I'd like some water,
( I haven't found a good gesture for this yet! Maybe a waterfall? Or river? )




A cup of tea,
( drinking politely!)




A hot chocolate,
( I couldn't think of a gesture, so just a normal "drink" pose!)




A milkshake!
( Shake like crazy!!)




Recommended Games

For some more practice, try the Telephone Game or the worksheet games below.

Or you could try making your own market full of drinks like Flossy did in Austria:




Worksheet Book Worksheet:


You are working in a restaurant, but have run out of drinks so you have to go to town to get some more! First roll a dice to choose which menu you must complete. Then roll the dice and move that number of places (either left or right). If you land on one of the items that you need and you can say "I'd like 2 lemonades" etc. in English, then you get that item. Keep going until you have all the items on your menu, then you can rush to the start square, get there first with your menu complete and you win!! There are also extra squares, such as "cable car" where you jump across to the other cable car!

You can get this worksheet in the worksheet books that come with the CD Set or Superpack.




Bonus Worksheet


This new worksheet is similar to the food worksheets. The kids ask you "Would you like a drink?" and you say something like, "I'll have a water, 2 teas, and a hot chocolate". The kids have to work out the total price. Quickest team is the winner. Or get 6 kids to come to front, they each put their orders in and in groups the other kids write down the total price for each person. At the end see how many totals each team gets correct. Very good for calming down a class or for 5th or 6th grade kids!
