Average: 4 (25 votes)


It's time for another musical lesson! Here is one to improve your vocab. I have removed some of the words related to 'fairytales' and romance from the song lyrics. Can you hear the correct word? Has anyone seen the new Shrek movie yet? I can't wait! Yes...I am a child!

'Today was a fairytale' - Taylor Swift

Missing words:

  • magic
  • pretty
  • kissed
  • prince

Today was a fairytale
You were the _1_
I used to be a _2_ in distress
You took me by the _3_ and you picked me up at six
Today was a fairytale

Today was a fairytale

Today was a fairytale
I wore a dress
You wore a dark grey t-shirt
You told me I was _4_ when I looked like a mess
Today was a fairytale
Time slows down whenever you're around

But can you feel this _5_ in the air?
It must have been the way you _6_ me
Fell in love when I saw you standing there
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale

Today was a fairytale
You've got a smile that takes me to another _7_
Every move you make everything you say is right
Today was a fairytale
Today was a fairytale
All that I can say is it's getting so much clearer
Nothing made sense until the time I saw your _8_

Today was a fairytale
