Sunday School Songs...
So we've been getting a ton of rain and flooding, and a discussion on my Facebook page turned into a discussion of arks, which lead to this:



I haven't heard the song in probably 25 years, but I still knew every word. Mike seemed surprised by the idea of "Sunday School Songs so catchy you'll never forget them" - so I ask my friends page: What songs did you sing in Sunday School that you still know today?

Current Mood: arky!

Oh god I remember that one. Flashbaaaaacks.

Other songs I remember "The wise man built his house upon the rocks / the foolish man built his house upon the sand" and "There are hundreds and thousands and millions of sparrows". "Colours of day"



Most of them I've managed to block out though.

ARGH. Now I can't get colours of day out. OUT OUT VILE BEAST.

Oh, I remember the one about the house upon the rocks. There were hand motions that went with it that I don't remember.

Never heard "Colors Of Day". I youtubed it - yeah, I see how that could earworm easily! The video I found was very 70's.

There were hand motions!

Building sand was flat hand on top of flat hand. Repeat.
Rain came tumbling down was hands doing Wayne's World style "flashback" finger wiggles.
Sand washing away was flat hands falling down.
Then building house on the rocks was fists on top of each other with the rocks staying firm two fists together

Why do I remember this? It's been like 18 years. x_x

Right!! Luckily, no one walked into my office while I was trying them out. :)

We know that there's a perfect age for language acquisition, and children introduced to different languages become bilingual easily. Perhaps there's an equivalent timing for the installation of these permanent earworms?

O. M. F. G. That one.

GET! THOSE! ANIMALS! Out of the muddy muddy!

Gah, earwormed and I didn't even watch the video.

Hmmm... there were more... OH the ... damn... OH! Right -- All God's children have a place in the choir! Some sing low, some sing higher some sing out loud on the telephone wire, and some just clap their hands! Or paws! Or anything they got, now! 8-P

Ooh, another one I'd never heard! That's pretty funny - very southern!

It's (*choke*) a round.

I was going to say that I'd never heard of a round that wasn't a children's song, but Wikipedia says I'm wrong:

"They were particularly favoured in glee clubs, which combined amateur singing with drinking on a regular basis."

Yeah, that's pretty much what it would take. :)

Sadly, I sang some little song, "I have the joy joy joy down in my heart" to someone this weekend. It was in jest though.
