Into the Oughts

Well, last week we did another song class. This one was quite difficult. We started last year in the 1950’s and now we’ve worked up to the 2000’s, or the “Oughts” as they are sometimes called. An “ought” is another word for zero. So, we call the years 2000 to 2009, the Oughts. The following song, Complicated, by Avril Lavigne was voted one of the top 100 songs of the Oughts. And, it’s always nice to get a bit of Canadian content too. Try to follow the song and fill in the blanks.

Avril Lavigne – Complicated
