A small street, Penny lane, also became well known all over the world thanks to a song. 

The Beatles were from Liverpool and they wrote many songs about their life as young people in their hometown. This term we are working with cities, that is one of the reasons why we are interested in cycle lanes and pedestrian crossings.

Let’s listen to the music and  follow the Beatles into a small street in Liverpool, Penny Lane,

Lane : a narrow passage between houses 

Here follows the lyrics.  Some words are missing. Look at the images, they might help you find the correct words to fill the gaps. Some words are repeated:

ears, laugh, barber, fireman, poppies, hello, queen, pouring rain, skies, pies
