Tom Waits – Kentucky Avenue
This lesson is based on the song “Kentucky Avenue‟ by Tom Waits.  This isn’t just some song about two punks; this is a song about two friends, or perhaps siblings, one of whom has a disability. The other does everything within his power to make his companion feel “normal‟, as if there were such a thing. Learners will practise talking about the past.  Teacher’s notes are provided.
