Happy, by Leona Lewis

Some of my students of 3rd of ESO are great fans of Leona Lewis, so I'm dedicating this song to them!

Notice how Leona uses a lot of contractions for common expressions in English, for example:

'cause =Because
gotta= have got to
wanna= want to
tryna= trying to
outta = out of

(This is because prepositions and connectors in English sometimes are pronounced with a weak sound, a sort of weak "a").

Some other linguistic notes:

safe as could be = as safe as possible
