10 MAX You too. You are so beautiful. This green skirt really suits you.
11 ANNA Thanks, Max. You look very smart today, too. You must have an important meeting.

13 ANNA What are you hiding there?
14 MAX Here you are. This is for you. I know today is your birthday.
15 ANNA My God. What beautiful flowers!. They are so colourful and they have such a nice smell. How did you know it’s my birthday?
16 MAX I saw it on your facebook.
17 ANNA Wow, you surprised me. I don’t know what to say. I really didn’t expect this.
18 MAX You don’t have to say anything. Take this. Open the present!
19 NARRATOR Anna opens the present slowly.
20 ANNA Wow, what a beautiful ring. But, Max, this is too much. This ring must have been very expensive. Max, I can’t accept it. We have to talk.
21 MAX Accept it, please. It’s just a present. It’s nothing.
22 ANNA We must talk.
23 MAX Ok, actually I would like to invite you to have lunch today. We can meet at a quarter to three in the restaurant next to the bank. What do you say?

Lyrics: Interesting words are highlighted with bold letters


Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today... Aha-ah...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace... You...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world... You...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one
