    In primary school we sung "jesus' hands were kind hands, doing good to all'

    and then during middle school we had songs like Autumn Days (where the grass is jewelled and the silk inside a chesnut shell. Jet planes meeting in the air to be refueled and the things I love so I mustn't forgeeeeet, no I mustn't forgeeeet, to say a great big thankyou I mustn't forget!) and then we had the 'I am the lord of the dance said he' and our teacher also made us sing 'the holly and the ivy' which she'd so kindly re-arranged it in her own special way so it sounded like a hymn rather than a carole. lol.
    OMG autumn days i loved!!!
    and i remember the lord of the dance one beacuse the boys used to get told off for dancing silly lol
    we actually re wrote the autumn days one when i left primary school,
    i went back to the same primary school for work experiance, and they have different hymn books now i was a little sad i have to admit

    "I like the flowers I like the daffodils i like mountains" I can't remember the rest lol
    As far as I remember, it's something like:
    I like the flowers, I like the daffodils
    I like the mountains, I like the rolling hills
    And I like the fireside, I like to walk alone

    Was it just our school, or did you get the inevitable "sing hosanna to the king (of...oops :blush:)" on the last line of the chorus? :p:

    Umm...I can't say any of these were really my favourite, if I had to pick one it'd be either "The Lord Is My Shepherd" (ahh, the Vicar of Dibley!) or "When A Knight Won His Spurs" cuz it has the knight in it
    No just not just your school myself and someone else posted how people would do it time after time accidentally on purpose lol!!

    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!
    And there was me thinking it was only my school that sang this song!

    I was cold,
    I was naked,
    Were you there?
    Were you there?
    I was cold,
    I was naked,
    Were you there?


    Oh, how we giggled. I still think it's odd.

    Maybe if I remember the rest of the song I'd understand the context, but at the moment it just sounds like it's about child abuse.
    HAHAHAHA I laughed out loud. I used to love that cos everyone would get "silly" when we sang it and the teachers wouldn't be impressed! :p:

    This song was legendary at my primary... The song was called "The butterfly song" - we ALWAYS shouted the part where it said "fuzzy wuzzy..."

    "If I were a butterfly
    I'd thank you Lord for giving me wings
    If I were a robin in a tree
    I'd thank you Lord that I could sing
    If I were a fish in the sea
    I'd wiggle my tail and I'd giggle with glee
    But I just thank you Father for making me, me

    CHORUS
    For you gave me a heart and you gave me a smile
    You gave me Jesus and you made me your child
    And I just thank you Father for making me, me

    If I were an elephant
    I'd thank you Lord by raising my trunk
    If I were a kangaroo
    You know I'd hop right up to you
    If I were an octopus
    I'd thank you Lord for my fine looks
    But I just thank you Father for making me, me

    If I were a wiggly worm
    I'd thank you Lord that I could squirm
    If I were a fuzzy, wuzzy bear
    I'd thank you Lord for my fuzzy, wuzzy hair
    If I were a crocodile
    I'd thank you Lord for my great smile
    But I just thank you Father for
    making me, me"

    good times A clip of it is here
