A classic song by Cat Stevens

Father
It's not time to make a change,
Just relax, take it easy.
You're still young, that's your fault,
There's so much you have to know.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.

I was once like you are now, and I know that it's not easy,
To be calm when you've found something going on.
But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything you've got.
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

Son
How can I try to explain, cause when I do it turns away again.
It's always been the same, same old story.
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen.
Now there's a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.

Father
It's not time to make a change,
Just sit down, take it slowly.
You're still young, that's your fault,
There's so much you have to go through.
Find a girl, settle down,
if you want, you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.

Son
All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,
It's hard, but it's harder to ignore it.
If they were right, I'd agree, but it's them they know not me.
Now there's a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.

Listen to the song and finll in the gaps with words you hear

Just relax, take it easy. 
You're still ................, that's your fault,

It's not time to make a change, 
Just sit down, take it slowly.

There's so much you have to go through. 
Find a girl, settle down, 
if you want you can marry. 
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.

The song is about a talk between a father and his son who's about to bring change into his life by getting married.

Young people are so eager for change and old people are always there to provide advice since they got wisdom from their life experience.
