You may want to model and play the first two lines of the song so that the students can understand the procedure. Students will be practising a number of skills as they make their choices. Sometimes they will have to make decisions concerning subject-verb agreement, sentence structure, word order, or selecting the right preposition.

It's the antithesis of old-world aristocratic values. It's all the theoretical good of capitalism wrapped up in a pretty little bow.
