‘Speak the Lyrics’ Valentine’s Day Edition with Ellen’s Writers


One thing I love to
do is send my writers to talk to strangers
using only song lyrics. Last week, I sent
them to a supermarket. In honor of Valentine’s
Day, I asked them to use mostly love songs. Please enjoy. [MUSIC – DUA LIPA, “ONE KISS”] (SINGING) Something in
