Bond Movie Songs

A fun exercise for your class might be to have different students turn 
the following songs into German versions and then sing them to the class 
or present them or something along those lines.  Not only would it be 
cool, but they would have to watch more Bond movies in the process, which 
is by definition a good thing.

> 
> For your eyes only, only for you.
> You see what no-one else can see, and now I'm breaking free.
> For your eyes only, only for you.

> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> 
> All I wanted was a sweet distraction for an hour or two.
> Had no intention to do the things we've done.

> But then we're two of a kind, we move as one.
> 
> We're an all time high,
> We'll change all that's gone before.
> Doing so much more than falling in love.
> On an all time high,
> We'll take on the world and wait.
> So hold on tight, let the flight begin.
> 
> I don't want to waste a waking moment; I don't want to sleep.
> I'm in so strong and so deep, and so are you.
> In my time I've said these words before, but now I realize
> My heart was telling me lies, for you they're true.
> 
> We're an all time high,
> We'll change all that's gone before.
> Doing so much more than falling in love.
> On an all time high,
> We'll take on the world and wait.
> So hold on tight, let the flight begin.
>
