FIVE BEAT SONG

Complex Time

It is not necessary to teach these unless you want to give a more far reaching conceptual understanding of metre. You might prefer to internalise just the simple metres.

The five and seven beat songs are in Complex time. he five beat pattern has a three beat pattern followed by a weaker two beat pattern. Five beat patterns CAN be done 2 and then 3 beats but these words have been constructed to work with 3 followed by 2. Some words in the verses have to be sustained in order to fill up the measure.

FIVE BEAT SONG 3+2

(Chorus)
One two three, four five
I’m learn-ing to drive
One two three, four five
Is my new num-ber.
One two three, four five
I’m learn-ing to drive
One two three, four five
my lic-ence num-ber

I’- m - - try-ing hard - - to do ev e - -ry-thing right.- - - -
See - - how I’m sto- -ping at e-ve-ry red light - - - -
(Chorus)

I turn the radio on with my trunk
I'm a good driver I never get drunk
(Chorus)
