I'm guessing everyone has sung in some sort of assembly or service at school?

what was your favourite song? and when did you last hear it?

did your school have any traits? such as adding long zzzzz soundszzzz to wordzzzzz like thizzzz and making hisssssssingsssss soundsssss at the end of lines?

It always makes me smile to think of those OHPs and the dodgy school piano - and even dodgier school pianist. who was actually a teacher from year 4.

that's gotta be a favourite.

Oh yes - OHP duty was serious stuff.
if you put it on the wrong way round - the whole school would laugh at you.

the apples are ripe - the plums are red

*whispers* broad beans are sleeping in their blankety bed yeeeah!

Don't build your house on the sandy land,
Doo doo doo.
Don't build it too near the shor-ore.
Well, it might be kind of nice, but you'll have to build it twice,
And you'll have to build you house once more.
You'd better build your house upon a rock.
Dum dah.
Make a good foundation on a solid spot.
And the storrrrrms maaaaay come and go,
But the peace of God you will know.

You just described my junior school to a T including the Year 4 teacher lady, who actually was a bit eccentric and liked to play the bagpipes as well as the piano and danced on her piano stool..

Ah, because we were C of E...Colours Of Day was a good song for us..everyone, not just the loudmouths, shouted out the chorus everytime...lol. And Autumn Days springs to mind.

And, he's got the whole wide world in his pants!

Cauliflowers fluffy and cabbages green,
Strawberries sweeter than I'd ever seen.
Beetroot purple and onion white,
All grow steadily day and night!

...on the brontosauRUSSSSS!

anyway, thankyou for letting me gabble.

I liked the one that went "Moses I know you're the man, the lord said, you've got to do what you can, the lord said, take all the israelites out of slaveryyyy"

Anyone else do that one?

Fighting over moving down the sheet on the OHP.

In Year 7 I was the OHP monitor. Serious business. I got to choose the hymns and put them on the OHP.

"ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL things bright and beautiful"

did you just make that up? haha

the one I know is :

the wise man built his house upon the rock
the wise man built his house upon the rock
the wise man built his house upon the rock and the rain came tumbling down

the rain came down and the floods went uuuuuUUUUUUUUUP
the rain came down and the floods went uuuuuUUUUUUUUUP
the rain came down and the floods went uuuuuUUUUUUUUUP (cue stupid ascending voice)
and the house on the rock stood firm.
