    haha now and again i suddenly start singing in my head random songs we used to sing at school and i think what they heck am i doing!

    we did most hymns to be honest, like "he's got the whole world in his hands" oh and one about "who put the monkey in the coconut" or something mad like that hahaa.

    i swear il have whole world in his hands in my head all night now arrh!!

    We would have singing practice the whole school now and again and if we didnt sing they were like stay behind and practice more haha how stupid. so everyone by the time we got to year 10 and 11 would sing really loud and really bad on purpose, especially the boys coz then they couldnt get told off for not singing. would spend the whole time laughing our heads off!!

    oooh jerusalem.

    that was sung by the WI - and as they slow hand clapped Tony Blair they were deemed to be Fascists - and so - Jersulam was not sung in our school.

    used to love this one:

    Cauliflowers Fluffy and cabbages green
    Strawberries are sweeter than any I've seen
    Beetroots purple and onions white
    All grow steadily day and night

    The apples are ripe and the plums are red
    The broadbeans are sleeping in their blankety bed

    etc...

    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.
    I adored that hymn!

    Also, we did the one that goes:
    Cross over the road my friend,
    Ask the Lord his strength to lend,
    His compassion has no end,
    Cross over the road!

    seriously.
    I am SO glad I made this thread.

    It is making me wanna cry - all those AMAZING memories.
    of how stupidly hysterical it was to put silly words in and we'd laugh about it for weeks.

    and infact
    im still laughing now!

    AT THE NAME OF JESUSSSS EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW!

    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.

    I went to a public school where it was something of a tradition. Rah rah rah...

    Your school's reason for not liking it is incredibly tenuous though, lol.

    I hated hymm practice more so because I did not go to a religious school. It's shocking that as a kid I was forced to sing songs about Jesus and say the lords prayer. Makes me angry.
