    Default need a song idea

    I have to choose a song and write 2 or 3 ideas how i could use it in a lesson. I have to include the relevant lyrics and explain what language point(s) or skill(s) students can practise with the help of that song and how they can practise them.

    what song do you think would be a good idea?

    i came up with this song and wandered what people thought and could you help me

    Heal the world, Make it a better place
    For you and for me and the entire human race
    There are people dying
    If you care enough for the living
    Make a better place for you and for me.

    You don't mention the age of the students (if that's relevant) but if they are relatively young, then perhaps the song from The Sound of Music, "Do/doe a deer, a female deer, re/ray a drop of golden sun, mi/me, a name I call myself etc. etc."

    The relevant grammar is that they will learn homonyms and some music.

    I am not a teacher.

    the students would be all ages and ranges. i like your song choice could you expand on that for me? also i thought these would also work what do you think:

    Heal the world, Make it a better place
    For you and for me and the entire human race
    There are people dying
    If you care enough for the living
    Make a better place for you and for me.
