I remember that and we weren't a religious school either!

When you think about it it's actually quite sick indoctrination of innocent minds :p:

"God made everything and if you disagree you will be DAMNED TO HELL, ALL OF YOUUUUU"
I know!
and i still remember those songs pretty much word for word
but i'd never say i was religious :/

Is it sad that I know all the words off by heart? I think literally everyone sang it, I've just posted it on Facebook and had so many responses! Good times
I posted it on facebook as well! 2 replies within the last ten minutes, :P

Big man standing by the... blue waterside
Mending nets by the... blue sea
Along came Jesus he said
Simon, Peter won't you
Mend your nets and come follow me

You don't need anything
I've got everything
But Peter it's gonna be a.. hard way
You don't have to worry now
Come on and hurry now
I'll walk beside you every day

Life wasn't easy for the... big fisherman
But still he followed til his... dying day
Along came Jesus he said
Simon, Peter, there's a...
Place in heaven where you can stay

You don't need anything
I've got everything
But Peter it's gonna be a.. hard way
You don't have to worry now
Come on and hurry now
I'll walk beside you every day.

Wow I remember all the words :o:

"AND THE TASTE OF APPLE PIE!!!!!"

Or did you go to a gay school where everyone shouted "And the win for my home team"?

I can remember so many!

Cauliflowers fluffy
English country garden
Spread a little happiness
When I needed a neighbour
Lord of the dance
The ink is black, the page is white
May morning
Pussy willow ('In the early days of spring...')
Valentine questions
Spring has sprung
It happens each spring
My Easter bonnet
Eash day different

Oh yes, and how could I forget:

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.

Did anyone learn the number of days in each month from that song?

Yes but we had it as (or I've always known it as):

Thirty days has September,
April, June and November,
All the rest have thirty one
Except February which has twenty eight,
And twenty nine in a leap year.

Nice thread!

I've always loved all these songs even though I'm not religious anymore - can still play most of them on the recorder too!!

'Colours of day' and 'Autumn Days' were two of my favourites. Since I've left school I've also grown to like 'When a knight won his spurs', though I don't think it's sung in many schools (shame as it's relatively unreligious compared to most of the above mentioned songs).

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?

'Shine Jesus Shine'
'Lord of the Dance'
'When i needed a neighbour' (yep we laughed at the naked bit too)
'Little Donkey (at christmas)
Sing Hosannah!' (similar problem with the 'of kings' line)
'This little light of mine' - in up to 4 part harmonies! oh yes.

ALSO this random song about vegetables which no one seems to have heard about. it sort of goes:

Cauliflowers fluffy, and cabbages green
strawberries sweeter than any i've seen
beetroot purple and onions white
all grow steadily day and night!
The apples are ripe, the plums are red, broad beans are sleeping in the blankety bed!

Ahh the memories!

Also our headteacher was kind of awesome and played electric guitar to hymns so we often sung Bob Dylan numbers: Blowin' in the wind and Cross over the road.

We sung when a knight won his spurs! but all i can remember is 'when a knight won his spurs in the stories of old, he was gentle and brave he was gallant and bold'! We also sung Colours of Day too.

Do you remember any?
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? ....


I must have an extremely boring life.
I remember "All things bright and beautiful," "Morning has broken..." loads of them. I've still got my book, I think it's called "Songs of Praise."

Is it alright if I politely point out that the song you mentioned is "Kum ba Yah;" it is three Hebrew words, the last of which is an abbreviated form of God's name.

I can remember:
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.

"We are climbing Jesus' ladder ladder"
"We are climbing Jesus' ladder ladder"
"We are climbing Jesus' ladder ladder"
"Children of the lord..."

And:
All Things Bright And Beautiful
Morning Has Broken
Lord of the Dance
He's Got the Whole World In His Hands
Give Me Joy in My Heart (Oil in my Lamp) (Sing Hosanna)
Kum Ba Yah
This Little Light of Mine
Amazing Grace
The Animals Went In Two By Two Hurrah!
Rise and Shine And Give God His Glory (Children of the Lord)
Keep Me Travelling Along With You
The Ink Is Black The Page is White

I was also wondering this. It'd be a shame if they didn't exist anymore, they were just a harmless tradition really.

:yep:
Naturally. Still, what was I supposed to expect, going to Catholic schools? And the only school I went to that wasn't, still got told off by OFSTED for being "too Christian." LOL. The parents of the one pupil in the school who wasn't white/English told Ofsted that actually, they liked the school's Christian ethos - they moved to a Christian country, so they wanted their child to learn about Christianity. :yep:

Don't know about my old primary school, but my old secondary school no longer sings hymns. They stopped 1-2 years after I left. Even while I was there, too many people would mumble the words or just not sing at all because they didn't believe in the words. That's what you get when you try and get cynical, grumpy, unbelieving teens to try and sing hymns I suppose :tongue:
