They make me LOL.

There was 'Kumbaya my Lord, Kumbaya' (with the funny hand roley poley movements LOL) and there was 'Do you see what I see'
And lots and lots others, did anyone else have to sing hymns at primary school? Which do you remember? ....:ninja::ninja:


I must have an extremely boring life.

Something about butterflies... I'll see if I still have my primary school hymn book.

EDIT: It was "All Things Bright and Beautiful".

That's the only one I can remember. Though we did sing a song called "The Gospel Train", does that count?

I usually hate it when people do this but I can't help it :teeth:

They're all there; http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...primary+school !

I'm doing a placement at a school and have to sit in the assembly and sing all along with the kids and it always makes me smile when they sing the same songs that I used to!

I used to think that Kumbayah was about cucumbers.

'Clean hands or dirty hands, brown eyes or blue, pale cheeks or rosy cheeks, Jesus loves you!' Our priest used to sing that while he strummed the same chord on his guitar (the same chord he strummed for 7 years).

The one with all the animals and the actions like 'If I was a fuzzy wuzzy bear I'd thank my Lord for my fuzzy wuzzy hair'.

Our school song was still the best though, even though it wasn't a hymn. I remember when they tried to change it because it was 'sexist' (one of the lines used to read 'whatever house we're in Sir') and all the Y6's and half the teachers used to sing 'sir' anyway and get in trouble. And then they added an extra house which then had to be added to the song and we all just ignored it and refused to sing it!

Lol. Is that the one with the "Sing Hosanna" chorus? Everyone always sang "of kings" at the end even though you were only meant to do it in the middle. :o:

"He's got the whole world in is hands,
He's got the whole wide world, in his hands,
He's got the whole world in is hands,
He's got the whole world in his hands."

Yes, I remember us being forced into chanting these unimaginative hymns against our own will like hypnotised machines, regardless of our religious beliefs.

All of the above. Also - Who put the colours in the Rainbow - and others that just aren't coming to me now.
We also had lots of silly songs.

Ah, brings back memories.

And did anyone sing the song, something like "I'm going to paint a picture, a world I'd like to see, no more hunger, war or suffering, the way it's meant to be"

Or another one that had something like "onions white, beetroot red"

One more step along the world I go,
one more step along the world I go;
from the old things to the new
keep me traveling along with you:
Refrain:
And it's from the old I travel to the new;
keep me traveling along with you.

Round the corner of the world I turn,
more and more about the world I learn;
all the new things that I see
you'll be looking at along with me: Refrain

As I travel through the bad and good,
keep me traveling the way I should;
where I see no way to go
you'll be telling me the way, I know: Refrain

Give me courage when the world is rough,
keep me loving though the world is tough;
leap and sing in all I do,
keep me traveling along with you: Refrain

You are older than the world can be,
you are younger than the life in me;
ever old and ever new,
keep me traveling along with you: Refrain


And


When I needed a neighbour
Were you there, were you there?
When I needed a neighbour
Were you there?
And the creed and the colour
And the name won't matter
Were you there?

I was hungry and thirsty
Were you there, were you there?
I was hungry and thirsty
Were you there?
And the creed and the colour
And the name won't matter
Were you there?

I was cold, I was naked
Were you there, were you there?
I was cold, I was naked
Were you there?
And the creed and the colour
And the name won't matter
Were you there?

When I needed a shelter
Were you there, were you there?
When I needed a shelter
Were you there?
And the creed and the colour
And the name won't matter
Were you there?

When I needed a healer
Were you there, were you there?
When I needed a healer
Were you there?
And the creed and the colour
And the name won't matter
Were you there?

Wherever you travel
I'll be there, I'll be there.
Wherever you travel
I'll be there.
And the creed and the colour
And the name won't matter
I'll be there.




Always used to laugh at naked.

I refused to sing most of em :P
and when i was forced I sung altered lyrics...
like there was this one called "lift your banners high" and it got changed to "lift your bananas high"

there was the one about lighting up the fire and letting jesus return :/ which got changed to "light up the fire! fart on the flame... make an explosion , do it agaiinn" and it fitted perfect

and we sang the "He's got the whole world in his hands"
and we changed it to "He's got the whole world in his pants"
then lyrics we came up with got progressively more perverted at we progressed through the school.

It was weird though, cos there were several kids of other religions like muslims and hindus and they were forced to sing it as well and most of us never really believed in god anyway
