Lyrics from Musical Comedies
(plus Beatles songs, Christmas songs, and Spanish songs)

Lyrics from songs are a great way to teach grammar. For example, "Without You" from Rent shows verb and subject agreement in the present tense ("Without you, the grass grows, the flowers bloom"). "Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better" from Annie Get Your Gun shows the comparative form. It is possible to teach all the grammatical forms of English by showing examples in musical comedy lyrics.
