    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 made it up a *tiny* bit.

    but its not very far from the truth!

    gotta love the raahhhhhs.

    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.
    I remember that one!

    Did anyone sing this one:
    I danced in the morning when the world was begun,
    And I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun,
    I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth;
    At Bethlehem I had my birth.

    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.


    Ooh and 'Who Put the Colours in the Rainbow'! Classic

    Who put the colors in the rainbow?
    Who put the salt into the sea?
    Who put the cold into the snowflake?
    Who made you and me?
    Who put the hump upon the camel?
    Who put the neck on the giraffe?
    Who put the tail upon the monkey?
    Who made hyenas laugh?
    Who made whales and snails and quails?
    Who made hogs and dogs and frogs?
    Who made bats and rats and cats?
    Who made everything?

    I used to love singing hymns! We never had OHPs though, sometimes the teachers would write the words on the board. Most of the time though, most people knew them already

    "So light up the fiiiire and let the flame burrrrn, open the door, let Jesus returrrrn!"

    And nothing beat our totally random 'school song' which was about bricks and mortar as far as I can remember
    Hahah I remember one about bricks and mortar too!

    Our primary school song had a chorus like "and the trees of the fields will clap their hands", something along those lines anyway...wtf

    I also remember one day in assembly there was a new song (we normally just sang the same few ones every week) and the lyrics were "the ink is black, the page is white, together we learn to read and write, to read and write" and for some reason me and my best friend thought it was hilarious (I have no idea why!), we just looked at eachother and burst out laughing. I was in hysterics by the end of it and I had to be sent out. It's making me laugh now thinking about it actually :rofl:

    Ohhh and the best one was Lord of the Dance. The chorus goes "I am the lord of the dance, said he", but we didn't have lyric books until we were in year 3, so I spent the first few years of school singing "I am the lord of the dance settee"
    Every time I sang it I pictured Jesus dancing on a settee :p:

    This thread has made me feel nostalgic.

    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.
    not really.
    you werent forced to worship god.

    at my school (CofE) you were encouraged to say the prayers - but only ever said Amen if you agreed with it. if you didnt agree with the prayer - or god - or whatever, you didnt sa Amen - and that meant.... erm.. that god didnt hear I guess.... *laughs* it worked for us as kids.

    If you dont say amen god wont hear your prayer
    The teacher would say "all our sakes amen."
    ahhhhmen! we'd all chorus

    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
    we sang this too

    Sing hosanna, sing hosanna,
    Sing hosanna to the King of kings!
    Sing hosanna, sing hosanna,
    Sing hosanna to the King.
    Ah... used to love this, simply because all the rebels would sing "King of Kings" in the last line, instead of just "King". Gosh... we were amused by simple things back then...

    Also...

    "Have you seen the old man, in the closed-down market
    kicking up the papers, with his worn-out shoes?
    In his eyes you'd see no pride, hand held loosely by his side
    yesterday's papers, telling yesterday's news"... etc.

    Don't really know how that one ended up being an assembly song... :confused:

    "There's waaater, water of life, Jeeesus gives us the water of life" was always a favourite.

    There was also that crazy listing one like 'Who made rats and cats and bats, who made hogs and dogs and frogs...God made everything' etc

    For some bizarre reason we used to sing Rod Stewarts "We are Sailing" and every row of kids would break into a slow sway.
