歌曲的内容描写了一个女子在爱人离开后面对孤单的黑夜忐忑不安以及恐惧的心理。如果大家有看过电影本身,也许会更能体会到歌词对电影情节的完美诠释。好了,一起来看一下今天的词汇扩展:

There's a nail in the door, and there's glass on the lawn. There's a shark in the pool, and a witch in the tree.
歌词描述了主人公,心里被恐惧占据着,所以目不转睛地盯着房间里的每一个角落,思绪也不停滴到处乱串,从门上的铁钉到屋子外面草坪上的玻璃,以及幻想出来的池塘里的鲨鱼还有树上藏着的女巫,都在说明这是一个不安而危险的夜晚。
There be句型,中文意思是‘有’。好了,大家现在看一看自己周围,尝试着用there be句型来造两个句子吧。
There's a cockroach ['kɒkrəʊtʃ] in your bed.你的床上有一只小强!
There are no words to describe how much I love you.没有语言能够描述我对你深深的爱。

There's a blade by the bed, and a phone in my hand. A dog on the floor, and some cash on the nightstand. When I'm all alone the dreaming stops. And Ijust can't stand.
这几句歌词把主人公随时准备战斗的那种架势描述得很生动。床边有一把匕首,电话就握在手上,狗狗在地板上躺着,床头柜上还放着现金。
介词by的用法:by意思: prep. 通过;被;依据;经由;在附近;在……之前
I pay them by the hour. 我按小时给他们钱。
I defeated him by knocking down his argument. 我通过驳斥他的论点击败了他。
Let me in by the kitchen door.让我从厨房的门进来吧。
歌词里面,by+地点名词,表方位,意为“在…旁边”
After supper she would sit down by the fire,sometimes for as long as an hour,thinking of her young and happy days.晚饭后,她常常会坐在火旁,有时会坐长达一个小时,回忆一下自己年轻快乐的那些岁月。
再扩展一下: by+时间名词,意为:“到…时(已发生某事),最晚,不迟于…,在…之前谓语多用完成时;”
The train leaves at 6:00 pm.So I have to be at the station by 5:40 pm.火车下午六点开,所以最晚我得五点四十赶到车站。
床头柜:nightstand

What should I do? I'm just a little baby. What if the lights go out and maybe? And then the wind just starts to moan. Outside the door he followed me home.
学会用短语what if,意思,‘如果;如果…将会怎样’,看一下例句:
What if you were to run out of money? What would you do?假设你的钱用完了呢?你将怎么办呢?(虚拟语气,谓语动词用了过去式were, were to do sth指的是,将要发生...事情)
What if this is all there is to our life? 假如生活就这样了,又该怎么办呢?

Goodnight Moon.
歌名灵感实际来自于同名童话故事Goodnight Moon。Goodnight Moon这个童话故事讲的是孩子在睡觉之前会跟房间里面所有的东西道‘晚安’,他会跟灯光道晚安,跟红气球,还有椅子、手套和袜子等等道晚安,琳达截取了一段,大家听一下
Goodnight light
And the red balloon
Goodnight bears
Goodnight chair
Goodnight kittens
Goodnight mittens
Goodnight clocks
And goodnight socks
Goodnight little house
And goodnight mouse
大家有时间,可以去搜一下这个童话故事,也许会被里面那种天真的童心所感动吧。世界原本就是这么单纯,是我们自己的心乱了,浮躁了,才不会相信月亮也会晚安。工作忙了,跟大家聊天的时间就更少了。不管怎样,琳达在呢。天热,大家注意防暑哦。
