'Don't you want me, baby?' by The Human League is good for that. You'll find the lyrics here:
Testo canzone Don'T You Want Me di Human League Lyrics

As for the song itself, you'll need to 'find' it somehow via file-sharing etc.

Good luck

Hi,

Thanks. I find the song very useful in teaching past simple tense. How about past continuous tense? Any advice?

Many thanks in advance.

Cheers,
Thomas

Is there not past continuous in it?
'You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar when I met you'

perfect for showing how the two tenses are used together :-)
