Songs for Remembrance

 

I like the poppies

I like the poppies

 We all wear on Poppy Day

Remembering the soldiers

Who’ve all passed away

Some survived to tell the tale

They are very old and frail.

Poppy day etc…

 

Autumn Leaves - Listen

In the autumn leaves start a-fallin’,
It’s not long ’til winter’s a-callin’;
Make the most of each sunny day and
Hope those rain clouds stay away!

Actions for 2nd and 3rd time through are:

Leaves falling

Calling on phone

Sunshine

Raindrops and push away

 

Turn your thoughts - Listen

Turn your thoughts on this occasion

To those who fought and died in the war

Years have passed and time has forgotten but

We will remember the soldiers once more.

 

No Wars will stop us - Listen

Ugly sounds are overheard and streets are colour-ed red

Young lives lost ev’ryday, it’s always been that way……..

But we believe one day we’ll see

A world at peace in harmony

…… And that is why we say:

 

 

 

No wars will stop us singing

Our voices will stay strong

…Even through the darkest hour…

…We will sing our song…

 

No fear will stop us dreaming

Our dreams will light the sky

…Even when all hope is gone..

….Our dreams will not die.

Mid 8

We are the future

We are tomorrow

We are the peace that you all crave

If our lives are taken, we’ll sing from beyond the…… grave.

 

Chorus (first part only)

 

We will sing…

We will sing…

…. We will sing…….your…….song……………………….

 

British National Anthem - Listen

God save our gracious Queen
Long live our noble Queen
God save the Queen
Send her victorious
Happy and glorious
Long to reign over us
God save the Queen

Thy choicest gifts in store
On her be pleased to pour
Long may she reign
May she defend our laws
And ever give us cause
To sing with heart and voice
God save the Queen

 

Pack up your Troubles - Listen

Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag

And smile, smile, smile.

While you’ve a Lucifer to light your lamp

Smile boys, that's the style

What's the use of worrying

It never was worthwhile, so

Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag

And smile, smile, smile.

 

Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag

And smile, smile, smile.

Just pucker up and whistle (Whistle)

(Whistling)

What's the use of worrying

It never was worthwhile, so,

Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag

And smile,                 smile,              smile.
