Everything at once. LENKA'S SONG. ADJECTIVES. As ...as.

As sly as a fox, as strong as an ox

As fast as a hare, as brave as a bear

As free as a bird, as neat as a word

As quiet as a mouse, as big as a house.

 

All I wanna be

All I wanna be,

oh All I wanna be is everything

 

As mean as a wolf, as sharp as a tooth

As deep as a bite, as dark as the night

As sweet as a song, as right as a wrong

As long as a road, as ugly as a toad

 

As pretty as a picture hanging from a fixture

Bright as day, as light as play

As hard as nails, as grand as a whale

 

All I wanna be, oh

All I wanna be,

oh All I wanna be is everything

 

Everything at once

Everything at once, oh Everything at once

 

As warm as the sun, as silly as fun

As cool as a tree, as scary as the sea

As hot as fire, cold as ice

Sweet as sugaran d evtherying nice

 

As old as time, as straight as a line

As royal as a queen, as buzzed as a bee

Stealth as a tiger, smooth as a glider

Pure as a melody, pure as I wanna be

 

All I wanna be,

oh All I wanna be,

oh All I wanna be is everything

Everything at once

Useful adjectives to describe people. Allanis Morissette 'Pocket in my hand' - SONG

I'm broke but I'm happy

I'm poor but I'm kind

I'm short but I'm healthy, yeah

 

I'm high but I'm grounded

I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed

I'm lost but I'm hopeful, baby

 

And what it all comes down to

Is that everything's gonna be fine fine fine

Cause I've got one hand in my pocket

And the other one is giving a high five

 

I feel drunk but I'm sober

I'm young and I'm underpaid

I'm tired but I'm working, yeah

 

I care but I'm restless

I'm here but I'm really gone

I'm wrong and I'm sorry, baby

 

And what it all comes down to

Is that everything's gonna be quite alright

Cause I've got one hand in my pocket

And the other one is flicking a cigarette

 

And what it all comes down to

Is that I haven't got it all figured out just yet

Cause I've got one hand in my pocket

And the other one is giving the peace sign

 

I'm free but I'm focused

I'm green but I'm wise

I'm hard but I'm friendly, baby

 

I'm sad but I'm laughing

I'm brave but I'm chicken shit

I'm sick but I'm pretty, baby

 

And what it all boils down to

Is that no one's really got it figured out just yet

Cause I've got one hand in my pocket

And the other one is playing a piano

 

And what it all comes down to my friends, yeah

Is that everything is just fine fine fine fine

Cause I've got one hand in my pocket

And the other one is hailing a taxi cab

Comparision as... as/than

 

I. Study this example:

Shirley, Henry and Arthur are all millionaires. They are all very rich. Shirley has 10 million pounds, Henry has 8 million pounds and Arthur has 2 million pounds. So:

Henry is reach.

He is reacher than Arthur.

But he isn't as reach as Shirley.

 

More examples:

Tom isn't as old as he looks (he looks older than he is)

The city centre wasn't as crowed this morning as it usually is (it is usually more crowded) 

Jenny didn't do as well in the exam as she had hoped ( she had hoped to do better)

I don't know as many people as you do (you know more people)

 

You can also say ' so .... (as)':

It's not warm but it isn't so cold as yesterday (...it isn't as cold as...)

 

II. You can use as...as (but not 'so .. as') in positve sentences and in questions:


I'm sorry I'm late. I got here as fast as I could.

There's plenty of  food. You can have as much as you like.

Let's walk. It's just as quick as taking the bus.

Can you send me the money as soon as possible, please?

 

 Also: twice as... as; three times as.. as etc:


Petrol is twice as expensive as it was a few years ago.

Their house is about three times as big as ours. 

 

III. We say the same as  (not 'the same like'):


Ann's salary is the same as mine or Ann gets the same salary as me.

Tom is the same age as George.

What would you like to drink?  I'll have the same as you.

 

IV. Than me/than I am etc:


We usually say:

You are taller than me (not 'than I')

He is not as clever as her   (not 'as she')


After than/as it is more usual to say me/him/them/us when there is no verb. Compare:

You are taller than Iam             but               You are taller than me.

They have more money than we have           but            They have more money then us.

I can't run as fast as he can                  but                 I can't run as fast as him.
