I really enjoy piggyback songwriting when helping clients reach their goals. One of my favorites is teaching emotions through the pop song “I Got a Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas.
You can play this as a game with feeling flashcards, or just by singing through the song and filling in the end of the phrase. Here’s my version!
I got a feeling, when stomp my feet
When my face gets red
When I cross my arms , I’m feeling mad
I got a feeling, when everything is alright
When nothing’s going wrong
When nothing’s bothering me, I’m feeling fine
I got a feeling, when I start to yawn
When my eyes start to close
When I want to lie down, I’m feeling sleepy
I got a feeling, when I want to jump up and down
When I can’t stop smiling
When I think something’s really cool, I’m feeling excited
I got a feeling, when I want to frown
When something’s got me down
When I feel like I could cry, I’m feeling sad
I got a feeling, that when I want to smile
When I’m with the people I like
When I like what I do, I feel happy
I got a feeling, when I’m by myself
When no one is with me
Yes I got a feeling, I’m feeling lonely.
I got a feeling, that I can do anything
When I solved a problem
When I help a friend, I feel strong.
