Ready for CAE p 10. Might As Well. Extra Listening

"Might as well" is used to suggest what one should do when there is no better alternative

"Might as well" can also mean that the situation is the same as if...

  1. Very useful lesson. Listening to these beautiful songs, it would be impossible to forget how to use "might as well"

  2. Song: "It might as well be spring"

    Listen to it on youtube:

    Lyrics:
    I'm as restless as a willow in a windstorm
    I'm as jumpy as a puppet on a string
    I'd say that I had Spring fever
    But I know it isn't Spring
    I am starry-eyed and vaguely discontented
    Like a nightingale without a song to sing
    Oh, why should I have Spring fever
    When it isn't even Spring?
    I keep wishing I were somewhere else
    Walking down a strange new street
    Hearing words that I have never heard
    From a man I've yet to meet
    I'm as busy as a spider spinning daydreams
    I'm as giddy as a baby on a swing
    I haven't seen a crocus or a rosebud or a robin on the wing
    But I feel so gay in a melancholy way
    That it might as well be Spring.
    It might as well be spring…
