What songs do you remember from Elementary school?
We sung a plethora of things from christmas songs to old sussanah, from home on the range to rudolph and jewish songs. And many others like doe mae ree, et al...

39 now, so no clue what sort of things they are singing nowadays. What songs do you remember.

I remember the chicken fat song. It went along with all the calesthenics we did in the 60s in elementary school. Remember the Presidential Physical Fitness Award?

forgive me I went to Catholic school, I am not trying to go all fundie on ya promise:

"Open the Window Noah, Open the window Noah. Open the window, open the window, open the window and let the dove fly in." Sad I know.

Also anyone else remember "Up With People?"

"Up up with people you meet them wherever you go!
Up up with people there the best kind of folk we know.
If more people were for people all people everywhere there'd
be a lot less people to worry about and a lot more people who care."

Also the Coke jingle that got made into a pop song. "I'd like to teach the world to sing,"

it in the sixth grade which was about 1974 for me. We used to sing in church and in school. Actually the singing was one of the few things I enjoyed about that school at the time.

63. Oh, do I remember "Up with People"
Fun fact: When I was studying in Europe in the 1980s, an Irish friend informed me that they had made up new lyrics to the Coca Cola jingle: "I'd like to join the IRA/ And furnish it with guns..." I've never been able to think of that song in the same way again.

11. Elementary school?!
Uh, that was a little while ago (I started Kindergarten in 1964, for heaven's sake).

I remember "Oh Tannebaum" (Wisconsin has a more than a few people of German extraction), "Downtown" (was that Petula Clark?), and a song about balloons ("Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon?" by the Fifth Dimension, perhaps?). Also, I recall we had a grade school talent show, and I was part of a "band" that lip-synched Mamas and the Papas tunes.

Oh dear, I am getting old.

27. A turkey sat on a backyard fence
and he sang this sad sad tune:
"Thanksgiving Day is coming gobble gobble gobble gobble
And I know I'll be eaten sooooooon!
Gobble gobble gobble gobble gobble gobble gobble
I would like to run away
Gobble gobble gobble gobble gobble gobble gobble
How I hate Thanksgiving Day!"

31. "The Ballad of Rodger Young"...
On the island of New Georgia in the Solomons,
Stands a simple wooden cross alone to tell
That beneath the silent coral of the Solomons,
Sleeps a man, sleeps a man remembered well.
Sleeps a man, Rodger Young

From 4th grade music class. If I get that in my head, it's stuck for the day.

In the middle of it was the 50 united States in alphabetical order. When I went to college, I had a friend who had learned the same song and we used to sing it together all the time. I know it's really lame

52. "Jump down, turn around, pick a bale of cotton..
Jump down, turn around, pick a bale a day.
Jump down, turn around, pick a bale of cotton.
Jump down, turn around, pick a bale a day.
Oh, Lordy. Pick a bale of cotton.
Oh, Lordy. Pick a bale a day.

This was complete with jumping down and turning around motions. It was in first grade, in the early sixties.

Years later, I was watching the movie "The Jerk" with Steve Martin, and Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee were sitting in front of the shack playing and singing, and I couldn't believe it: they were singing this song! I'm guessing this is probably an old slave song; I have no idea how or why our first grade teacher had us singing it. :shrug:
