Remember Tony and Peter, the twin brothers who started singing at the age of five? The little boys are now twenty-five years old and will come back home for the first time since they left ten years ago. They will be singing to celebrate the 100th birthday of our beautiful town.

Tony and Peter are famous for their wonderful voices. They are popular with both young and old people. Three years ago the brothers organized the Garbage Can with their three cousins. The five of them started to write their own songs and have become successful. In the coming concert in Greentown, the Garbage Can is going to sing their best-loved songs and several new ones.

The concert will be at Apple Park at 7 p.m. on October 10. Fans who do not want to miss it should get to the park as early as possible.

Here are the lyrics of a song.

Don’t Ask Him Why

by Tim Blair

He was afraid.
He was knocked on the head.
He was too little to know why Mom and Dad didn’t like him.
He was only five when he was sent to the hospital.

So don’t ask him why he did not cry for help
He was too little to answer the question.
He was too young to know he could ask for help.

Sometimes things go wrong in this world.
Still there must be something we can do
Something to give him hope and love.

So let’s do it. Do it. Do it.
Give him your hand.
Give him your love.
Only you and I can help him.

So don’t ask him why.
Never ever ask him why.

Lingua Today

May 5, 1995

There are about 6,000-7,000 languages spoken in the world. However, almost one language dies every two weeks. It means many languages are getting near the end of their lives. Take Navajo for example. It is one of the languages spoken by the native people of North America. Today, more and more Navajo children grow up learning and speaking only English. Most of them do not even know what the 3,000-year-old Navajo language sounds like.

Chart 1 below shows that from 1980 to 1990, the percentage (%) of young Navajos (Age: 5-17) who speak only English grew quickly. Chart 2 shows that in 1992, many Navajo children under the age of six spoke English well, but not many of them spoke their parents’ language well. Clearly, the Navajo language may soon be lost if we don’t do something about it.

Yellow Dress
by Janet Lee
Mary had a yellow dress
Bought from the department store.
It looked as beautiful as the moon,
And as bright as the sun.

Mary wore all the time
The yellow dress I felt so right.
Every day from day to night
I saw her in the dress so bright.Buy me a yellow dress.I cried to Mom and Dad,
“As beautiful and bright
As the dress the girl living near has!”

I cried and cried and cried,
Until they said with sad eyes,
“We need food for your baby sister.
And clothes for your coming brother.Since then I’ve learned
Mary’s yellow dress
Is better to dream of
Than to ask for.
44.
Why does the writer say. Every day from day to night / I saw her in the dress so bright?
The dress had sun shapes on it.
The writer lived with Mary.
The writer liked the dress very much.
The dress was Mary’s school uniform.
45.
What did the writer’s parents mean by their words?
They did not like the yellow dress.
They would ask Mary where to buy the yellow dress.
They already had a dress for her baby sister.
They did not have money for a dress.
