'Lyrics' are words that are put to a tune to make a song.

Notice the following:

  1. That song has wonderful lyrics, it is one of my favorites.
  2. Do you ever listen carefully to lyrics?

pure fun

It was the pure fun for me so I didn't think I studied.

'Pure fun' is used to describe something that is only done to give you enjoyment, not for any other purpose.

Notice the following:

  1. I want to go out and dance because it is pure fun for me.
  2. Wow! Today was pure fun, don't you think?

A 'soundtrack' is the collection of songs that have been picked to go along with a film or television program.

Notice the following:

  1. My favorite songs are always from movie soundtracks.

so many times

I saw that movie so many times. I don't remember how many times I saw that.

When you do something 'so many times' it means that you have done it repeatedly. We frequently use this phrase, followed by 'that', to give reason for something else.

Notice the following:

  1. I have driven to work so many times that I know the journey off by heart.
  2. I have told you so many times to tidy your room.


Watching the same movies so many times you memorize a whole like words and sentence.

A 'sentence' is a group of words that work together to express an idea. All of the words in a sentence are connected in their form and meaning. It ends with a full stop and starts with a capital letter.

Notice the following:

  1. Don't forget to use sentences in your writing.
  2. I know that sentence by heart.
