    We are climbing Jesus's ladder ladder, we are climbing Jesus's ladder ladder etc. With actions too. Brilliant.
    In the 'Children of the Lord' bit, did you cross your arms and thump your chest?

    favorite[/s]things...]i used to like 'michealmas daisies' but noone else seems to know it.
    This one?

    Michaelmas daisies purple in the border,
    big fat leeks all standing up in order.
    Whiskered barley talking to the breeze
    Low hung boughs of laden apple trees

    Chugging engines ready for the reeping
    Pounds of chutney labled for the keeping
    Giant marrows winning every prize,
    Bubbling jars of elderberry wine.

    Fruits are bottled, others in the deep-freeze,
    Silken poppies blushing in the cornfields.
    DON'T BRING MUDDY BOOTS INTO THE HALL,
    Golden Onions hanging on a wall.

    It's harvest time,
    Harvest time again.
    Harvest time,
    Give thanks for sun and rain.

    A time to take
    and a time to give
    Harvest time, it's the time to live

    At harvest time.....
    Mellow, fruitful harvest time.

    We used to sing this at Easter. It's a bit depressing!

    'Led like a lamb to the slaughter
    In silence and shame,
    There on Your back
    You carried a world
    Of violence and pain.
    Bleeding, dying, bleeding, dying.

    He's alive, He's alive,
    He has risen, Alleluia!
    And the power and the glory is given,
    Alleluia, Jesus, to you."


    Also, what was the whipped and stripped song?

    Also, what was the whipped and stripped song?
    That was "I am the Lord of the Dance, said he" wasn't it? "They whipped me and stripped me and they thought I'd gone, but I am the Lord and I will go on" or something!
    "Dance then, wherever you may be, I am the Lord of the Dance said he, and I'll lead you all wherever you may be and I'll lead you all in the Dance, said he".
    Sad, I know :p:

    I remember singing "Oh Christmas Tree" and our school song.

    For some reason I keep blanking out, even though I know we had a music class!

    I also liked "Oh when the saints go marching in" and the KFC/Pizza Hut song. Good times. :yeah:
    haha i remember the KFC/Pizza Hut song

    Oh my gosh I actually love this thread!! I went to a Catholic school and we had hymn practices/assemblies/masses at any given moment so there are too many songs/hymns to mention. I found them quite enjoyable though! Here are some of the favourites:

    Colours of Day
    Shine Jesus Shine
    Walk In The Light
    He's Got The Whole World In His Hands
    "And he will raise you up on eagles wings, bear you on the breath of dawn, make you to shine like the sun and hold you in the palm of His hand"- I loved this one and I still do!
    "Ave Maria, gracia plena, dominus tecum, benedicta tu"
    All That I am
    "Here I am Lord, is it I Lord, I have heard you calling in the night"
    "Gloria in excelsis deo"
    Morning has broken
    Lord of the Dance

    I remember my class even sang 'Time of Your Life' by Greenday at our leaving mass lol!

    How about those clapping songs in primary school? I was so good at them :p: :

    'Down, down baby, down down the rollercoaster, sweet sweet baby..."
    "Under the apple tree my boyfriend said to me..."
    "The sailor went to sea sea sea to see what he could see see see"
    "ABC hit it! That's the way uh huh uh huh, i like it..."

    Also even though we sang some great songs, I feel a bit left out because I don't think we ever sang 'Autumn Days' which seems to be a primary school classic for most people!

    "Bind us together Lord, bind us together with chords that cannot be broken......"


    And an array of other bible hymns.
    Yeah we sang this one too and I remember people used to muck about and prolong the 's' in 'us' as as if they were hissing like a snake so it would always be 'bind usssssss together Lord bind usssss....' :p:

    In uganda they had this song that was really catchy and basically went 'higher higher, jesus higher, lower lower, lower lower lower lower, lower lower, jesus lower,' and just kept repeating itself to a nice tune. Don't think I've ever heard it in England.
    Yeah I know that song! I think my mum taught it to me so it must be an african thing (I originate from Ghana). It is quite catchy!

    The worm song
    'Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, i think i'll go and eat worms, big fat juicy ones, wee skinny slushy ones..see how they wriggle and squirm' LOLOL.
    Here's that song..
    'Think of a world without any flowers,

    Think of a world without any trees,

    Think of a sky without any sunshine,

    Think of the air without any breeze:

    We thank you, Lord, for flowers and trees and sunshine;

    We thank you, Lord, and praise your holy name.

    2

    Think of a world without any animals,

    Think of a world without any herd,

    Think of a stream without any fishes,

    Think of a dawn without any bird:

    We thank you, Lord, for all your living creatures;

    We thank you, Lord, and praise your holy name.

    6.

    Think of a world without any people,

    Think of a street with no-one living there,

    Think of a town without any houses,

    No-one to love and nobody to care:

    We thank you, Lord, for families and friendships;

    We thank you, Lord, and praise your holy name.'

    Here we go, just remembered another - "When Israel was in Egypt's land, let my people go..." and then when it got to the chorus it would go "go down, Moses! Way down in Egypt's land. Tell Old....Pharoah, to let my people go" but because the younger kids would sing louder, it always sounded like "Tellowd ...Pharoah" lol.
    And in one of the verses, it says "Christians have the right to SHOUT!" so everyone would shout and one of the old teachers used to block her ears just before lol.
    Aww I remember this song!
    One of my favourites was "Autumn days when the grass is jewelled and the silk inside a chestnut shell..."
