Music Video: Glee - A Boy Like That

Average: 3.7 (39 votes)

When I was Colombia, I watched lots of old movies with my husband. One of them was West Side Story, a musical based loosely on Romeo and Juliet. Listen to this song and see if you can complete the gaps with the missing words. Try reading through first guessing before you listen. I’ve used a recent version of the song that appeared in the TV show 'Glee', as the quality is better. Enjoy!

Listening Lesson: A Boy Like That Lyrics


a boy like that
who'd kill your brother
_1_ that boy
and find another
one of your own kind
stick to your own kind
a boy like that
will give you sorrow
you'll meet another boy _2_
one of your own kind
stick to your own kind
a boy who kills cannot love
a boy who kills has no _3_
and he's the boy
who gets your love
and gets your heart
very smart, maria, very smart
a boy like that
wants one _4_ only
and when he's done
he'll leave you _5_
he'll murder your love
he murdered mine
just wait and see
just wait maria
just wait and see


oh no anita, no
anita no
it isn't true, not for me
it's true for you, not for me
i hear your _6_
and in my head
i know they're smart
but my heart, anita
but my heart
knows they're wrong
you should know _7_
you were in love
or so you said
you should know better
i have a love and it's all that i have
right or wrong, what else can i do?
i love him, i'm his
and _8_ he is
i am too
i have a love, and it's all that i need
right or wrong, and he needs me too
i love him, we're _9_
there's nothing to be done
not a thing i can do
but hold him and hold him _10_
be with him now, tomorrow
and all of my life

Maria & Anita

when love comes so strong
there is no right or wrong
your love is your life
