Singing Assembly

Every Wednesday morning, we have singing assembly. Here are some of the songs we like to sing! You can watch the videos, read the lyrics and practise singing them at home. Enjoy! 

 

Our current assembly song is 'Paradise' by Coldplay. You can listen to the song here and read the lyrics below:

Past songs

Our school anthem 'Give It All You've Got'. Here are the lyrics so you can learn it by heart at home. Watch out for the rap bits - they're tricky!

 

Give it 1…, give it 2…, give it 1-2-3!
Give it 1…, give it 2…, give it 1-2-3!
Give it 1…, give it 2…, give it 1-2-3!
Give it 1…, give it 2…, give it 1-2-3!

(Chorus)
We are the children of Pipworth School,
We take a pride in the things we do.
Learning together and having fun,
Who’s for a good day? EVERYONE!

(RAP)
Give it all you’ve got,                                                          
‘Cause you’ve really got a lot!
Give it heart, Give it soul,
Give it mind , don’t stop!

(x2)

(RAP)
Everyone is special,                                                           
Everybody has gifts,
So we’re gonna work together,
And we’re gonna learn to give!

(x2)

'Put a Little Love in Your Heart' by Al Green & Annie Lennox


Put a Little Love in Your Heart

Think of your fellow man
Lend him a helping hand
Put a little love in your heart
You see it's getting late
Oh, please don't hesitate
Put a little love in your heart

(And the world)
And the world will be a better place
(And the world)
And the world will be a better place

For you (For you)
And me (And me)
You just wait (You just wait!) 
And see!

Another day goes by
Still the children cry
Put a little love in your heart
If you want the world to know
We won't let hatred grow
Put a little love in your heart

(And the world)
And the world will be a better place
(And the world)
And the world will be a better place

For you (For you)
And me (And me)
You just wait (You just wait!) 
And see!

Take a good look around
And if you're looking down
Put a little love in your heart
I hope when you decide
Kindness will be your guide
Put a little love in your heart

 

Put a little love in your heart (Repeat until the end)

'Thankful Heart' by The Muppets & Michael Caine.

With a thankful heart

With an endless joy
With a growing family
Every girl and boy
Will be nephew and niece to me
(Nephew and niece to me)
Will bring love, hope and peace to me
(Love hope and peace to me)


Yes, and every night will end
And every day will start
With a grateful prayer
And a thankful heart


With an open smile and with open doors
I will bid you welcome
What is mine is yours
With a glass raised to toast your health
(Glass raised to toast your health)
And a promise to share the wealth
(Promise to share the wealth)


I will sail a friendly course
File a friendly chart
On a sea of love
and a thankful heart

 

Life is like a journey
Who knows when it ends?
Yes, and if you need to know
The measure of a man
You simply count his friends


Stop and look around you
The glory that you see
Is born again each day
Don't let it slip away
How precious life can be


With a thankful heart that is wide awake
I do make this promise
Every breath I take
Will be used now to sing your praise
(Used now to sing your praise)
And to beg you to share my days
(Beg you to share my days)

 

With a loving guarantee
That even if we part
I will hold you close in a thankful heart
I will hold you close in a thankful heart


In a thankful heart!

'Enjoy Yourself' by Prince Buster

It's good to be wise when you're young
Cos you can only be young but for once
Enjoy yourself and have lots of fun
Serve God and live, my friend, and it will never done

Enjoy yourself
It's later than you think
Enjoy yourself
While you're still in the pink
The years go by as quickly as a wink
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself
It's later than you think

Get wisdom, get knowledge and understanding
Those three were given free by the maker
Go to school, learn the rules, don't be a faker
It's not wise that you should be another man’s foot stool

'Wavin' Flag' by K'Naan

Give  me freedom, give me fire

Give me reason, take me higher

See the champions take the field now

Unify us, make us feel proud

In the streets, our heads are lifting

As we lose our inhibition

 

Celebration, it surrounds us

Every nation, all around us

 

Staying forever young

Singing songs underneath the sun

Let’s rejoice in the beautiful game

And together at the end of the day,

We all sing….

When I get older

I will be stronger

They’ll call me freedom

Just like a wavin’ flag         

(x 2)

 

So wave your flag

and wave your flag,

and wave your flag.

 

'Yellow Submarine' by The Beatles
