Bobby: Some singers just seem to keep on singing even when they are haggard.
Kelly: Why should a singer stop just because they are getting on in years?
Bobby: Singing is for young people. Old folks always look so pathetic when they try to act younger than they are.
Kelly: People like Mick Jagger from the Rolling Stones were so cool when they were young, but now they just look like sad old men.
Bobby: But their fans still want them to keep going.
Kelly: Sometimes you have to ignore your fans and do what is right.
Bobby: Maybe he likes singing so much that he can‘t stop?
Kelly: I think that he likes the money he makes from singing.
Bobby: Well, that seems like a good reason to me!
1) Haggard: someone who looks very old
Although my mom looks haggard, I still love her and think that she is very beautiful.
2) Pathetic: hopelessly pitiful
The teacher said that my excuse for forgetting my homework was the most pathetic reason she had ever heard.
3) Fans: people who like a particular singer, band or movie star
It must be hard for famous people to answer all of the mail they get from their fans.
Jessie: I heard a song on the radio that changed my life.
Tina: Wow! That sounds like a great song.
Jessie: It was! It had a good beat that you could dance to and powerful lyrics.
Tina: Usually songs that are good to dance have terrible words.
Jessie: I know and that is why I say that this song will change my life.
Tina: Because now you can dance and sing at the same time?
Jessie: That‘s right! Maybe I could start a whole new type of exercise program?
Tina: You will need to find more than just one song though.
Jessie: Hmmm. I hadn‘t thought of that. Maybe I will listen to the song again!
