Choir lyrics – Summer Fair 2018

Count on me
If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea,
I’ll sail the world to find you.
And if you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can’t see,
I’ll be the light to guide you.
Find out what we’re made of,
when we are called to help our friends in need.

You can count on me like one, two, three, I’ll be there,
And I know when I need it, I can count on you like four, three, two,
And you’ll be there
‘Cos that’s what friends are s’posed to do, oh, yeah,
Ooo, ooo, yeah, yeah.

If you’re tossing and you’re turning and you just can’t fall asleep
I’ll sing a song beside you.
And if you ever forget how much you really mean to me,
Everyday I will remind you.
Find out what we’re made of,
When we are called to help our friends in need.

You can count on me like one, two, three, I’ll be there
And I know when I need it, I can count on you like four, three, two,
You’ll be there,
‘Cos that’s what friends are s’posed to do, oh, yeah
Ooo, ooo, yeah, yeah.

You’ll always have my shoulder when you cry,
I’ll never let go, never say ‘goodbye’

You can count on me like one, two, three, I’ll be there
And I know when I need it, I can count on you like four, three, two,
You’ll be there,
‘Cos that’s what friends are s’posed to do, oh, yeah,
Ooo, ooo,

You can count on me cos’ I can count on you.

Under the Sea
The seaweed is always greener
In somebody else’s lake.
You dream about going up there.
But that is a big mistake.
Just look at the world around you,
Right here on the ocean floor.
Such wonderful things surround you
What more is you lookin’ for?

Under the sea, under the sea.
Darlin’ it’s better down where it’s wetter.
Take it from me.
Up on the shore they work all day.
Out in the sun they slave away.
While we devotin’ full time to floatin’
Under the sea.

Down here all the fish is happy
As off through the waves they roll.
The fish on the land ain’t happy.
They sad ‘cause they in the bowl.
But fish in the bowl is lucky,
They in for a worser fate.
One day when the boss get hungry
Guess who gon’ be on the plate?

Under the sea,
(Under the sea,)
Under the sea.
(Under the sea).

Nobody beat us, fry us and eat us in fricassee.
(Ah – in fricassee hee hee hee).
We what the land folks love to cook.
(Land folks love to cook,)
Under the sea we off the hook.
(Sea we off the hook).
We got no troubles, life is the bubbles
Under the sea.
(Ah – under the sea).

Each little clam here know how to jam here
Under the sea.
Each little snail here know how to wail here
(Ah – ah)
That’s why it’s hotter under the water.
(Ah – ah)
Ya, we in luck here, down in the muck here
(Ah – ah)
Under the sea.
(Under the sea).

Happy
It might seem crazy what I’m ‘bout to say.
Sunshine she’s here, you can take a break.
I’m a hot air balloon that could go to space.
With the air, like I don’t care, baby, by the way. Huh.

Because I’m happy, (Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof.)
Because I’m happy, (Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth.)
Because I’m happy, (Clap along if you know what happiness is to you.)
Because I’m happy, (Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do.)

Here come bad news talking this and that. (Yeah)
Well, gimme all you got, and don’t hold it back. (Yeah)
Well, I should prob’ly warn you I’ll be just fine. (Yeah)
No offence to you, don’t waste your time, here’s why:

Because I’m happy, (Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof.)
Because I’m happy, (Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth.)
Because I’m happy, (Clap along if you know what happiness is to you.)
Because I’m happy, (Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do.)

You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me,
You’ve got a friend in me.
When the road looks rough ahead,
And you’re miles and miles from your nice warm bed,
You just remember what your old pal said,
Boy, you’ve got a friend in me.
Yeah, you’ve got a friend in me.

You’ve got a friend in me,
You’ve got a friend in me,
You’ve got troubles, well I got ‘em too,
There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you.
We’ll stick together and we’ll see it through,
‘Cause you’ve got a friend in me,
You’ve got a friend in me.

Some other folks might be a little bit smarter than I am,
Bigger and stronger too, maybe,
But none of them will ever love you the way I do,
It’s me and you, boy!

And as the years go by
Our friendship will never die.
You’re gonna see it’s our destiny;
You’ve got a friend in me,
You’ve got a friend in me,
You’ve got a friend in me.

The school choir was very fortunate to have another opportunity to collaborate with Citi Choir, recent office choir of the year. This term, we joined forces to sing at the Citi carol service on Monday 12th December. We were welcomed into the Citi offices in Canary Wharf and given a tour of the trading floor. We also got to see a 14-storey high art installation by Bridget Riley, which hangs in the centre of the building!

Here are a few photos of our trip and two short videos of the wonderful singing. Congratulations to all members of choir for performing so well this Christmas!

Choir put on a cheerful performance of songs chosen in partnership with the residents of Lucy Brown House, including ‘Molly Malone’ in honour of St Patrick’s Day, some favourite Girl Guide songs and more.
It was a particularly special performance as our audience joined in and sang with us!
Well done to choir for their hard work and dedication this term.

Well done to Choir who performed brilliantly today in Paternoster Square. What a fantastic end to a very busy musical term!

City of London Festival

Choir were invited to take part in the City of London Festival, singing with the Citi Choir, who are part of the Music in Offices programme. Directed by Emma Taylor, one of the coaches from the musical Matilda, the school choir will be performing three songs from the show on a pop-up stage in Paternoster Square, outside St. Paul’s Cathedral, accompanied by a live band!

Here are the highlights of our preview performance in the school hall:

World premiere!

Listen here to our performance of Just Take My Hand, written by members of Miss Hayfield’s family, Martin and Rosie. We were the first singers ever to perform the song which has been 20 years in the making! Martin and Rosie were very impressed with our wonderfully energetic singing.

(Music and lyrics copyright Martin and Rosie Willis. Please contact school if you would like to perform the song elsewhere.)

Sing Up Day

Cathedral School enjoyed a very musical Sing Up day this year. Every class enjoyed activities such as singing the register, singing numeracy and literacy songs, playing singing games, learning songs in different languages and adding new words and percussion to favourite songs. There was even singing in the playground as Year 3 children shared action songs they had been learning with KS1 and KS2 during playtime. The whole day was finished off with a fantastic Singing Celebration in the hall, where every class performed a song that they had been learning. It was a delight to hear such a variety of songs sung so beautifully and enthusiastically. You can hear some of the songs that were performed on the class blogs.

As an extra treat, the choir performed a concert after school. They sang songs from musicals including Oliver and the Sound of Music. Enjoy their performance below!
