Theres also,

Three little angels all dressed in white tried to get to heaven on the end of a kite,

But the kite string was broken down they all fell couldnt get to heaven so they all went to two little angels all dressed in white....

and My grandfathers clock was too large for the shelf so it stood ninety feet on the floor, it was taller by half than the old man himself yet it weighed not a penny weight more it was brought on the morn of the day that he was born and was always his treasure and pride but it stopped short never to go again when the old man died.

When you were at school, did you have school assemblies where you used to sing hymns?

lots of love

France's, not in the northwest in a public school.  We don't sing hymns in schools here.    Separation of church and state, and all that goes with it.   I don' know about our southern states,  were you all allowed to sing hymns in school?

My gramma sang all the time, so I know all the old songs. And we went to grange every month and sang there.   Princess was singing while riding in the grocery cart when she was three, High Hopes.  DD started singing with her and in no  time, the entire population of shoppers in the produce department were singing High Hopes with them.  

   When this DD was four, she sang swinging on a star for the grange show.   My gramma always hoped for a ham,   She had to wait for a great granddaughter to get one.   Wendy started singing swinging on a star and every time she got the end of the chorus everyone would start to clap, but Wendy would start another verse.  There are about 7 verses, long verses in the. Song and she sang at the top of her little lungs to the bitter end.  Gramma was beaming all the way through.

we sang the national anthem and said the pledge of allegiance to the flag.  That we did every morning at the start of school. And that included the words "under God."

Around here, the school choirs still sing Christian Christmas songs at the winter concert.  (among other things.).

How about Goosey, Goosey Gander?  A lot of those songs had violence in them.  Jack and Jill;  Hickory Dickory Dock etc.

Gini,

We had school assembly every morning and sang hymns ( i loved it i sing crap but i still love it best part of school assembly) and Christmas was great with christmas carols and Easter was good with hymns as well (not sure its done now classed as politically incorrect) although its exceptable in Church of England schools.

lots of love

My mother used to sing "You Are My Sunshine".  I have her singing it on tape, haven't listened in a long time but I will now that I'm reminded, thanks.  How about  KKK Katie, beautiful Katie?

My dad used to sing "Once there was a little Chick" all the time. I sang it to my kids but guess I will have to teach it to my grandkids LOL.

Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love
