My dad used to sing a song about days of the week. It started "Monday is washing day, Tuesday is soup" and ended "Saturday is pay day". Does anyone remember the other bits?

Here you go:

 

We'll drink a drink a drink to

Lily the pink a pink a pink

The saviour of the human race

For she invented medicinal compound

Most efficacious in every case

 

Mr Frears had sticky out ears

And it made him awful shy

And so they give him medicinal compound

And now he's learning how to fly

 

Brother Tony was notably bony

He would never eat his meals

And so they give him medicinal compound

Now they move him round on wheels

 

We'll drink a drink a drink to

Lily the pink a pink a pink

The saviour of the human race

For she invented medicinal compound

Most efficacious in every case

 

Well Ebeneezer thought he was Juilius Ceasar

And so they put him in a home

Where they give him medicinal compound

And now his emperor of Rome

 

Johnny hammer had a terrible stammer

He could hardly say a word

And so they give him medicinal compound

And now his seen and never heard

 

We'll drink a drink a drink to

Lily the pink a pink a pink

The saviour of the human race

For she invented medicinal compound

Most efficacious in every case

 

Auntie Milly ran willy-nilly

When her legs they did recede

And so they hooked on medicinal compound

Now they call her Millipede

 

Jenifer Eccles had terrible freckles

And the boys all call her names

But she changed with medinical compound

And now he joins in all their games

 

We'll drink a drink a drink to

Lily the pink a pink a pink

The saviour of the human race

For she invented medicinal compound

Most efficacious in every case

 

Lily the pink she turned to drink she

Filled up with parafin inside

And dispite her medicinal compound

Sadly pickalily died

 

Up to heaven her soul ascended

For the church bells they did ring

She took with her medicinal compound

Hark the herald angels sing

"I Don't See Me in Your Eyes Anymore" is a popular song, written by Bennie Benjamin and George David Weiss and published in 1949. The song was popularized that year by Gordon Jenkins and the Stardusters and by Perry Como.

 

The song received renewed popularity in 1974, when country singer Charlie Rich released a cover version he had recorded during the mid-1960s. Rich's rendition reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in June 1974.

My nan used to sing this to us & I now sing it to my 5 year old grandaughter. She loves it, especially soouuuuuup & does all the actions. Sunday is sung very slowly/softly whilst putting your palms together as though praying. Sunday we go to Church, is everybody happy, ya bet ya life we are ................

The joy and the memories we get out of songs and tunes is unbelievable and universal.

We've songs for all occasions, ceremonial, Religious, teaching, and all the moods you care to mention..

What would life be like with out music and I wonder how big apart it played in mans evolution....
