Computational thinking to analyse song structure

Thanks to Ms Schofield to alerting me to this

I think it is a really cool way to analyse the structure of song lyrics. Ms Schofield reckons it is a good way to practise computational thinking. So year 6 – can you create a lyrical flow chart for a song of your choice?

Here are some lyrics to get you started:

Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do
Or try this

Mamma mia, here I go again My my, how can I resist you Mamma mia, does it show again My my, just how much I’ve missed you

Yes, I’ve been brokenhearted Blue since the day we parted Why, why did I ever let you go Mamma mia, now I really know My my, I could never let you go

Analysing lyrics in this way should really help us when we come to write our own songs next term!
