After parties

They like to have after parties.

We have 'after parties' after the main party. We usually go with a group of friends and they often continue well into the early morning.  Notice the following:

  1. I went to a lot of after parties in college.
  2. I heard there's an after party at Simon's house later.

follow the lyrics

You just follow the lyrics and you just sing

'Lyrics 'are the words of song. When we follow the lyrics, that means we read them and sing at the same time.  Notice the following:

  1. At karaoke, I just follow the lyrics at the bottom of the screen.
  2. It's difficult to follow the lyrics of many English songs.

stick it onto

You can just stick it onto your cell-phone or onto your notebook

When we attach something to something else, usually with a sticky substance, we use the phrase 'stick it onto'.  Notice the following:

  1. Stick a Post-it onto my computer screen to remind me.
  2. Stick it to onto your shirt so people know your name.

Here, the phrase 'do you have that' is similar in meaning to 'do you have the same thing'  Notice the following:
