Rohini said...

Can it be true is a modern religious song
The other one you had asked for:
When night was glamorous, a fellow amourous went out to woo a pretty little maid. Beneath her window far he tuned his gay guitar and sang beneath the stars his serenade.
Chorus: Lady Romantical, List to my canticle, slip from your coverlet, fleecy and white
I think the name is Lady Romantical
Hope this helps

Ujwala,
My daughter was impressed when I remembered the lyrics to Nina pretty ballerina. She thought it was cool.

Ujwala said...

dunno why i remember the night was glamorous so well... i think it's cool too - howz your singing now? cant keep up with dipu. also need to find a way to squish the post a bit or sort it in some order.

Rohini said...

How do you go to the next page on the blog?

sangeeta mehra(bukshi) said...

hey whats this all about....? all the songs n hymns we learnt....?? first day and last day of school we sang lord behold us and lord dismiss us also lead us heavenly father lead us, oo'er the world's tempestuos sea
who remembers ducks from class 4 or 5...? my favourite!

Ujwala said...

rohini - sadly there is no easy way given by blogger to navigate. you need to look at the archives. i'm hoping to do some tagging so that when you click on a tag say rohini you get all related post but for that we need to start tagging all past and future posts. more to you on that later.

sango - tks for listing some of the prayers. the one that i remember i did not want to put down here as it was the heading of my next post. but then since most people are nto visiting the comments i might just do that anyway - I love to go a wandering....

along the mountain track and as i go i love to sing with my knapsack on my back valerie valera valera ha ha ha :D

and i never learnt this one at school you taught me!!!

Uj,
We learned this in 3rd or 4th class. It is one of the first songs I learned in LMC. Also, learned Finniculi/Finnicula and Obladi blada. Ro
