I adapted this song for my elementary learners to review word order in questions - not too many difficult words

Day trip to Bangor - trips and journeys and English history

I used this song to introduce the idea of day trips and excursions as compared to holidays

Worksheet here

Some colloquial language 

a paddler boat - is often known as a pedalo these days - a boat with paddles that you powerlike a bicycle
a ferris wheel - a large vertical wheel on which people travel for pleasure - similar but not the same as the London Eye
the diddley bom tarara - nonsense words which make the sound of an old brass band
cider -  an alcoholic drink made of apples - similar but not the same as beer
mill - here refers to the cloth mills which were very common in the north of England in the early 1900's

Wonderful world - present simple

I rehashed this one for some low level students who said that English songs were to difficult for them to understand
