Watch the video, listen to the lyrics and have a go at the following questions which we will discuss in Wednesday’s Zoom meeting:

1) How do we know that Ralph is becoming too tired for his job? Give lyrical examples.

2) Describe how you think Ralph must feel when he’s lying on the scrap heap.

3) Who rescues Ralph and why?

4) How does Ralph feel when he’s been fixed? How do we know?

5) The songwriter uses different words (synonyms) which mean ‘robot’ to refer to Ralph, during the song. What are these and why does he do this?
