My exciting news this week is that we’re moving to Berlin. Helmut has a new job. He told me a few years ago that he didn’t want to climb the social ladder (Karriere machen), but here he is, with new challenges. So babe, this song is dedicated to you, with all of my love. Keep it in the middle. You can rock or you can leave.
When you get elevated,
They love it or they hate it
You dance up on them haters
Keep getting funky on the scene
While they jumpin’ round ya
They trying to take all your dreams
But you can’t allow it
Cause baby whether you’re high or low
Whether you’re high or low
You gotta tip on the tightrope
Talking this through with business English students:
- Does the first video remind you of any films you’ve seen?
- Janelle Monae uses some slang you may not be familiar with. Can you guess what it means? How would you summarize what she’s singing about?
