School Choir

North Ealing Primary School
Our KS2 Choir meets every Wednesday from 3:25-3:55 in the Music Room and is open to keen singers from Years 3-6.

To join the choir, please complete the Google Form sent out at the start of the Autumn Term which will detail the first rehearsal date.

We do ask that pupils in the choir are picked up PROMPTLY at 3:55 UNLESS they have permission to walk home by themselves ( see the form).

We perform regularly and include ‘open rehearsals’ each term as well as performing at events such as ‘Lighting up the Lane’ and our Summer Concert.

This is an ‘extra’ for pupils who WANT to attend and full commitment is expected. We have a lot of fun but also work hard; some pupils may find this too much after the school day.

Alele (Lyrics)
A Friendship song from Africa!

Oh, A-le-le!
A-le-le xichatunga!
A massa massa massa!
Oh, a-le balo al-e baloe!

Oh, let’s be friends.
Friends that stay together,
Forever and forever.
Oh, our friends will be always on our side!

Believe Lyrics

When I look up to the stars,
There’s a burning deep inside me
And I feel a power growing in my soul.
There is something I can sense,
Deep within a dream to guide me,
And I know that I am reaching for my goal.

I can do anything at all,
I can climb the highest mountain,
I can feel the ocean calling wild and free.
I can be anything I want,
With this hope to drive me onward,
If I can just believe in me.

When the skies are dark and grey,
We still know the sun is shining:
Though it’s out of sight, its light is glowing still.
And as long as I believe,
There is nothing I can’t wish for;
Not a dream that I’m unable to fulfill.

(Oo oo oo oo)

I can do anything at all,
I can climb the highest mountain,
I can feel the ocean calling wild and free.
I can be anything I want,
With this hope to drive me onward,
If I can just believe in me.

(Ah ah ah,
If I can just believe in me.)

And whatever it takes I’ll find it somehow;
Whatever it needs I’ll show I’m strong.
Whatever it takes I’ll make it happen:
Finding out where I belong.

(I’ll find it somehow.
I’ll show I’m strong, I’ll show I’m strong.
I’ll make it happen:
Finding out where I belong.)

While the world is spinning round,
I can sometimes lose direction
And I know how hard it is to find my way.
But with friends around to care,
There is nothing I can’t handle,
And I’ll face the future treasuring each day.

(Oo oo oo oo)

I can do anything at all,
I can climb the highest mountain,
I can feel the ocean calling wild and free.
I can be anything I want,
With this hope to drive me onward,
If I can just believe in me.

(Ah ah ah,
If I can just believe in me.)

Medley Lyrics

Swing low, sweet chariot

Hotaru Koi Lyrics

Ho, ho, hotaru koi,
Atchi no mizu wa nigai zo,
Kotchi no mizu was amai zo,
Ho, ho, hotaru koi.
(Ho, ho, fireflies come here,
That water is bitter,
That water is sweet,
Ho, ho, fireflies come here)

Chocolate Dreams Lyrics

Feeling blue, nothing new,
There is only one thing to do to lighten up, brighten up,
That’s dream, chocolate dreams.

Got an ache, need a break,
There is only one thing to do to smile again, laugh again,
That’s dream, chocolate dreams.

Scrummy in a cheese cake, Yummy in milkshake,
Pour it in a sauce on vanilla ice cream.
Lick it off a biscuit, in a soufflé whisk it,
All you have to do is dream, chocolate dreams.

Feeling down, got a frown?
There is only one thing to drown your woes and sighs,
Close your eyes and dream, chocolate dreams.

In the glums, overcome,
There is only one thing to numb your misery,
Despondency, that’s dream, Chocolate dreams.

Chunk it up with toffee, dunk it in your coffee,
Spread with peanut butter is rather extreme. Crunchy, crisp or chewy,
Munchy, mint or gooey,
All you have to do is dream, chocolate dreams.

Dream………. chocolate dreams.

Put On A Happy Face Lyrics

Grey skies are gonna clear up, put on a happy face!
Brush off the clouds and cheer up, put on a happy face!
Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy
(It’s not your style).
You’ll look so good that you’ll be glad
You decided to smile!
Pick out a pleasant outlook,
Stick out that noble chin,
Wipe of that ‘full of doubt’ look,
Slap on a happy grin!
And spread sunshine all over the place, just
Put on a happy face!

Singing All Together Lyrics

Singing all together, singing just for joy.
Singing all together, ev’ry girl and boy.

Ev’rybody singing a song, ev’rybody singing a song!
Ev’rybody sing all day long, ev’rybody sing all day long!

When Will We Learn? Lyrics

Chorus:
When will we learn?
When will we learn that the world
Wasn’t made for only you and me?
When will we learn? When will it be?
When will we learn? When will we see?

Will we ever stop polluting the rivers and the seas?
Will we ever stop destroying the forests and the trees?

Chorus

Do we care about the tiger? And will we save the whale?
Can we really say we’re trying – or are we bound to fail?

Chorus

With our poison or detergent, insecticide or spray,
Are we killing our tomorrow by living for today?

Chorus

CODA:
When will we learn? How long must we wait?
And if we do learn – will it be too late….?
When will we learn?

Oranges and Lemons Lyrics

Ding, dong, bell! Etc
‘Oranges and lemons’, say the bells of St.Clement’s.
‘You owe me five farthings’, say the bells of St.Martin’s.
‘When will you pay me?’ say the bells of Old Bailey.
‘When I grow rich!’ say the bells of Shoreditch.
‘When will that be?’ say the bells of Stepney.
‘I do not know!’ says the great bell of Bow!

Singin’ in the Rain! Lyrics

I’m singin’ in the rain,
Just singin’ in the rain,
What a glorious feeling
I’m happy again,
I’m laughing at clouds
So dark up above,
The sun’s in my heart
and I’m ready for love.
Let the stormy clouds chase
Ev’ryone from the place,
Come on with the rain,
I’ve a smile on my face.
I’ll walk down the lane
With a happy refrain,
And singin’, just singin’ in the rain.

Consider Yourself Lyrics

Consider yourself at home,
Consider yourself one of the family.
We’ve taken to you so strong,
It’s clear we’re going to get along!
Consider yourself well in,
Consider yourself part of the furniture.
There isn’t a lot to spare;
Who cares? Whatever we’ve got we share!

If it should chance to be we should see some harder days,
Empty larder days, why grouse?
Always a chance we’ll meet somebody to foot the bill,
Then the drinks are on the house!

Consider yourself our mate,
We don’t want to have no fuss,
For after some consideration, we can state:
Consider yourself one of us.
Consider yourself at home,
Consider yourself one of the family.
We’ve taken to you so strong,
It’s clear we’re going to get along!

Consider yourself well in,
Consider yourself part of the furniture.
There isn’t a lot to spare;
Who cares? Whatever we’ve got we share!

Nobody tries to be lah-di-dah and uppity,
There’s a cup o’ tea for all,
Only it’s wise to be handy wiv a rolling pin,
When the landlord comes to call!
Consider yourself our mate,
We don’t want to have no fuss,
For after some consideration, we can state:
Consider yourself one of us.

Under the Sea Lyrics

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).

Touch the Sky Lyrics

When the cold wind is a-calling,
And the sky’s clear and bright,
Misty mountains sing and beckon,
Lead me out into the light.

I will ride, I will fly,
Chase the wind and touch the sky,
I will fly,
Chase the wind and touch the sky.
[Part 2] Na, na, na, na, na, na,
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na. (x2)

Where darkness hides secrets,
And mountains are fierce and bold,
Deep waters hold reflections,
Of times lost long ago.

I will hear their every story,
Take hold of my own dream,
Be as strong as the seas are stormy,
And proud as an eagle’s scream.

I will ride, I will fly,
Chase the wind and touch the sky,
I will fly,
Chase the wind and touch the sky.

[Part 2] Na, na, na, na, na, na,
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na. (x2)

And touch the sky.
Chase the wind, chase the wind.
Touch the sky.

One in a Million Lyrics

I am a seed in a meadow,
I am a leaf on a tree,
I am a rock in a mountain,
I am them and they are me.

We are the rays of the sunshine,
We are the waves of the sea,
We are all one and a million,
Together stronger than just me.

Ah_, united we are strong,
Ah_, feel the power in our song,
Ah_, we can achieve our dreams,
Ah_, if together we all believe.
One and a million, join us today,

Building tomorrow, leading the way. (x2)
I am a rose in a garden,
I am a star in the sky,
I am a note in an anthem,

You are them and so am I.
We are the rays of the sunshine,
We are the waves of the sea,
We are all one and a million,
Together stronger than just me.

Ah_, united we are strong,
Ah_, feel the power in our song,
Ah_, we can achieve our dreams,
Ah_, if together we all believe.

Football xxx Footballl xxx we love xxx Football xxx
We support our fav’rite sport and we’re going to win the cup!

We love a game and it’s called cricket,
There is the batsman by the wicket,
See how the ball flies past the bat
And the bowler shouts, ‘OWZAT!

Throw the ball, serve and run,
Tennis is fun,
Watch out Wimbledon!

If you are energetic, then you will like athletics,
Relay, long jump, put the shot -it’s go the lot!

Who could ask for anything more?
I got daisies
In green pastures
I got my life
Who could ask for anything more?

You won’t find him
‘Round my door

I got starlight
I got sweet dreams
I got my life
Who could ask for anything more?
Who could ask for anything more?

Here comes Sally walking down the alley,
Here comes Sally just like that!
Here comes another one just like the other one,
Here comes another one just like that!

Well, I looked down the alley and what do I see?
A great big man from Tennessee!
Well, I bet you five dollars I can ‘’whup’ that man

I bet you five dollars I can ‘’whup’ that man!
Well, I jumped to the right, I jumped to the left,
I jumped to the right and shimmied my best!
