What can you learn from this song?

– it’s a short narrative story, with a punchline, so if you can understand what it is about, you will feel a sense of achievement
– the story is told in the past, so there are some nice past forms (and most of them are actually useful)

If you came here from Masculine Nouns Inflection Chart you can go back there using this link.

The film was made in 1983, the title is “Akademia pana Kleksa” (based on a novel of the same title by Jan Brzechwa)
It is for kids and about kids, showing “everyday life” in an unusual college where only boys whose name starts with a letter A are accepted. Surprising how this scene ends, I watched this movie in primary school but couldn’t remember this bit at all…

Księżyc raz odwiedził staw

Księżyc raz odwiedził staw
Bo miał dużo ważnych spraw
Zobaczyły go szczupaki:
“Kto to taki? Kto to taki?”
Księżyc na to odrzekł szybko:
“Jestem sobie złotą rybką!”
Słysząc taką pogawędkę
Rybak złowił go na wędkę
Dusił całą noc w śmietanie
I zjadł rano na śniadanie

Extra challenges for commentators:
