Don’t Read Like a Robot – Learn To Read With Blazer Fresh


This is a fun song that encourages kids to up their skills when reading out loud. This would be a great song to play before having students read aloud in class. Lyrics are below the video.

Lyrics

Don’t Read Like A Robot

So I was chillin in class, mindin my biz
When my teacher, she calls on me
She says, Alright it’s your turn to read aloud!
And like an icy POP! I freeze (BRRRR!)
WHEN I open my mouth to speak the words
my tongue is in a knot
Do I read with expression? Not even close.
I sound like a robot.
Did you know that tigers have striped skin, not just striped fur?


And my teacher said…
FLIP A SWITCH AND READ IT LIKE THISSSSSS…

Did you know that tigers have striped skin, not just striped fur?
Did you know that tigers have striped skin, not just striped fur?

Got it!

You gotta read with expression
Yes, read with expression
You wanna read with expression
Don’t read like a robot

Next day I was loungin’ in my room
And my mom knocked right on my door
She said “ You got a letter from gramps
He’s with grams in El Salvador!”
I went to read the letter to myself
But my mom opened up her lips
She said “why not read that letter out loud”
I wanna hear about their trip!
Hello Sonny! We’re having a blast! Grandma and I went skydiving!

And my mom said…
FLIP A SWITCH AND READ IT LIKE THISSSSSS…

Hello Sonny! We’re having a blast! Grandma and I went skydiving!
Hello Sonny! We’re having a blast! Grandma and I went skydiving!

You gotta read with expression
Yes, gotta read with expression
You wanna read with expression
Don’t read like a robot

At school the next day, I tried out for the play
And I really wanted the main part (really really)
I practiced the lines over over again
I was nervous, oh man, my heart (thump, thump)
When it was my turn on stage to read for the role
All the blood rushed to my head
My tongue twisted up and knees started to shake
You couldn’t hear a word I said!
I’m sitting on a tack! I’m sitting on a tack! Ahh! Help! I’m sitting on a tack!

And my director said…
FLIP A SWITCH AND READ IT LIKE THISSSSSS…

I’m sitting on a tack! I’m sitting on a tack! Ahh! Help! I’m sitting on a tack!
I’m sitting on a tack! I’m sitting on a tack! Ahh! Help! I’m sitting on a tack!

You gotta read with expression
Yes gotta read with expression
C’mon read with expression
Don’t read like a robot

Now when I read anything out loud
I do it with passion and flare
No more mumbly words and silly murmurs
I’m chill – not all crazy and scared
I used to read like a ROBOT
ROBOT VOICE: All my words sounded exactly the same
But now I read with expression
Yo! That’s my claim to fame!

I read with expression
Oh yeah I read with expression
I like to read with expression
I Don’t read like a robot

You gotta read with expression
Yes read with expression
C’mon read with expression
Don’t read like a robot

Anybody want a peanut?
I’ll take it!
