(A couple of years ago I had the honour to be invited to co-write the school song for our village school. The recording is of the children singing it at one of their concerts. There is something selfishly flattering about hearing something you've created being performed by others).
On mornings when I feel so blue
and my spirits saddened
I join with all my friends at school
where my heart is gladdened;
Come and join us, you will see
Each day here in Haddlesey
Our teachers, friends and me -
We sing together. We sing together. We sing together. We sing together.
I Listen, learn, I play and sing
both at my desk and in the Hall;
Through Autumn, Winter and through Spring
happy days enjoyed by all;
We older help the young,
The small helped by the strong
We know we all belong -
We learn together. We learn together. We learn together. We learn together.
I count my blessings every day
that life has been so kind
For those less fortunate I pray
that comfort they may find;
For those worse off than me
That children all could be
With us in Haddlesey
At one together. At one together. At one together. At one together.
