“Dirimu dihatiku sudah terlalu lama
Biarlah ku mencoba untuk tinggalkan semua” (by KMI band)

Recently, a part of this song is popular song among Indonesian teenagers. This song is very nice to listen and easy to sing. So, I choose this song to be used as a media in teaching concept of text type namely report text. I try to teach it through this good song. In this case, I try to make my students understand easily the concept of report text. So, I ask all my students to memorize its concept through Indonesian popular song namely “BIARLAH”. This song is sung by a newcomer of Indies band namely “KILLING ME INSIDE BAND/ KMI”

The following is an explanation about how to change the real lyrics of this song into lesson manuscript.
The real title of this song is “Biarlah”, sung by Killing Me inside Band.

The real lyrics is ….
“Semua yang berlalu
Telah menjadi kenangan
Dan seakan kulupakan
Karena ku tak sejalan”

Then, I change above lyrics into my own version. Look at this!
“All my friends, let’s study
The concept of report text.
Do you know and understand
Let’s memorize its concept”

Wowowo . . . .

The next real lyrics is …
“Dan tak mungkin ku bertahan
Meski telah ku coba
Semuanya tak berguna
Terbuang sia-sia”

Then, I change above lyrics into my own version. Look at this!
“And, to describe, the ways things are
About something people make,
Non living and living things
Natural phenomena,”

Then, first Reff, real lyrics is …
Reff :

“Dirimu dihatiku sudah terlalu lama
Biarlah ku mencoba untuk tinggalkan semua”

Then, I change above lyrics into my own version. Look at this!
“General classification and followed the description
Consists of two components; we call it a report text”

Wowowo . . . .

The next real lyrics is …
“Dan tak mungkin ku bertahan
Meski telah ku coba
Semuanya tak berguna
Terbuang sia-sia”

Then, I change above lyrics into my own version. Look at this!
“And we write it, in present tense
The use of general nouns
Behavioral, relating verbs
The use of technical terms”

Then, Second Reff, real lyrics is …
Reff : (second reff)

“Dirimu dihatiku sudah terlalu lama
Biarlah ku mencoba untuk tinggalkan semua”

Then, I change above lyrics into my own version. Look at this!
“Reading books, classroom lesson, and TV documentaries
Observation, Research report, and encyclopedias”

After changing all the lyrics, now I present the whole song lyrics. Here it is:

All my friends, let’s study
The concept of report text.
Do you know and understand
Let’s memorize its concept
#
And, to describe, the ways things are
About something people make,
Non living and living things
Natural phenomena,
#
Reff (the first)

General classification and followed the description
Consists of two components; we call it a report text
#
And we write it, in present tense
The use of general nouns
Behavioral, relating verbs
The use of technical terms
#
Reff (the second)

Reading books, classroom lesson, and TV documentaries
Observation, Research report, and encyclopedias
#
