Do your best and make the most of this song

If you've ever wondered why it's 'do the ironing' but 'make the bed', the answer is COLLOCATIONS.
English is full of these words that usually go together and which you should learn as a whole and not separately: 'make an effort', 'tell a joke', 'conduct a survey'...
I've chosen a very popular song by Police in which you'll find several of these collocations. Do the gap-fill activity below and then click the link on the toolbar to learn some more verb and noun collocations.
