    I can't remember what it was called but I loved this song we sang in first school. The only bit I remember though is that it had a line about bottlecaps! I think they were on the beach or something

    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.

    And the silk inside a cheshnut shell.

    And the things I love so well!:p:

    Oh I mustn't forgettt,
    Oh I mustn't forgettt,
    To say a great big thank-you
    Oh I mustn't forget!

    Thank-you so much for writing out some of the lyrics!:hugs: Lots of people on this thread were saying about the hymn Autumn Days, which I couldn't remember at all until your post!

    No-one has mentioned this hymn yet that I'm going to mention. I can't remember it's name or all/most of the lyrics :p: but it went something like this:

    Merciful and mighty Lord
    Your spirit....
    .......with your love
    So come with us
    And fly with us,
    Your spirit shall be free
    And He'll bless you with His/our love.

    So I'll put my hand into your hand
    And let you lead the way
    Whenever you will smile at me
    I know I will not be afraid
    As you pull me closer to your heart.

    That was one of my favourite hymns. I wish they'd chosen it to sing more often at my primary school.

    Did anyone else sing this hymn too/does it ring any bells with anyone else?

    EDIT: W00t- my 5000th post!:p: :eek:

    We are a rock revolving
    Around a golden sun
    We are a billion children rolled into one
    So when I hear about the hole in the sky
    Saltwater wells in my eyes...



    Aww it's such a beautiful song:yep:
    Did anyone else sing that one at school?

    I planted a seed

    I'm gonna lay down my sword and shield (down by the riverside)

    Peace is flowing like a river

    I will bring to you...

    I'm going to paint a perfect picture

    In the bustle of the city


    Plus I'm sure there's others I've forgotten... I did leave primary school 11 years ago!

    Ooh we did "Peace is flowing like a river" too! And also "Peace, perfect peace". And did anybody do:
    "Such love, pure as the whitest snow,
    Such love, deep as the shame I know,
    Such love, paying the debt I owe,
    Oh Jesus, such love"
    That's so beautiful, I love that one!
    And "Make me a channel of your peace" - that's my favourite ever hymn

    I saw this post yesterday, and could vaguely remember a song like that.
    Then last night lying in bed, words just came to me!

    "milk bottle tops and paper bags...."
    so ive just googled it and...

    Milk bottle tops and paper bags,
    Iron bedsteads, dirty old rags,
    Litter on the pavement,
    Paper in the park
    Is this what we
    CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP
    Really want to see?
    CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP
    No! No! No

    Old plastic bottles, silver foil,
    Chocolate wrapping, engine oil,
    Rubbish in the gutter,
    Junk upon the beach,
    Is this what we
    CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP
    Really want to see?
    CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP
    No! No! No!

    Help us, Lord, to find each day
    Ways to help to keep away,
    Litter off the pavement,
    Rubbish off the beach,
    For this is what we
    CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP
    Really want to see
    CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP
    Yes! Yes! Yes!
    ...
    Aha.

    Autumn days, when the grass is jewelled
    And the silk in a chestnut shell
    Jet planes meeting in the air to be refuelled
    All these things I love so well
    So I mustn't forget
    No, I mustn't forget
    To say a great big thank you
    No, I mustn't forget.

    My Grandfather's clock was to large for the shelf,
    So it stood ninety years on the floor.
    It was taller by far than the old man himself,
    Though it weighed not a penny weight more.

    It was bouuught on the morn,
    Of the day that he was born,
    And was always his treasure and pride;
    But it stopped short
    Never to go again,
    When the old man died.

    CHORUS:
    Ninety years without slumbering,
    Tiiiiick, tock, tiiiiick, tock,
    His life seconds numbering,
    Tiiiiick, tock, tiiiiick, tock,
    It stopped short
    Never to go again,
    When the old man died.


    Charming.

    Ahhh there were so many!! It's a sign that I love 'going down memory lane' that I can still remember at least the gist of so many of the songs we sung in assemblies at infants school!

    I daresay alot of them have been mentioned already, but here goes:

    - Cauliflowers fluffy
    - English country garden
    - The page is white, the ink is black
    - Spread a little happiness
    - Pussy willow
    - Spring has sprung
    - My Easter bonnet
    - It happens each spring
    - Valentine questions
    - Each day different

    and last but not least, the months of the year song!

    Thirty days hath September
    April, June and November,
    All the rest have thirty-one
    Except for February alone
    Which has twenty-eight days clear
    And twenty-nine in each leap year.

    Good times! *Feels nostalgic*
