Subject: Need Songs re ancient peoples for 2nd graders

Date: 28 Sep 12 - 02:39 PM

I am looking for songs about ancient peoples appropriate for 2nd graders at a secular Jewish Sunday school, so, not really religious. Please help, and ASAP! Thanks.

Ldf, you might speed up the process if you are more precise. Songs to sing or to listen to? Must it be folk songs? In English? Which ancient peoples do you think of, and how ancient? Should they have a relationship to ancient Hebrews? (There are many songs about Pharaos, but those I know are either bawdy or related to the Bible.) Would Vikings qualify? Or Native Americans?

Thanks, Grishka. I'm looking for a song or songs to teach to and sing with a class of 2nd graders that relates to the study of ancient peoples currently in their curriculum. It would be great if there were some reference to the desert, or oases, goats, tents, that sort of thing. It doesn't have to be a folk song, but easily taught and learned by that age group. It can be in English or not. If it would generally fit the theme, I guess it an be other cultures as well.

"Alley-Oop"
(Dallas Frazier)

[The Hollywood Argyles is really just Gary Paxton]

[Lyrics in (parentheses) sung by backup group only]

(Oop-oop, oop, oop-oop)
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)

There's a man in the funny papers we all know
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
He lives 'way back a long time ago
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
He don't eat nothin' but a bear cat stew
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Well, this cat's name is-a Alley-Oop
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)

He got a chauffeur that's a genuwine dinosawruh
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
And he can knuckle your head before you count to fawruh
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)

He got a big ugly club and a head fulla hairuh
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Like great big lions and grizzly bearuhs
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
(Alley-Oop) He's the toughest man there is alive
(Alley-Oop) Wearin' clothes from a wildcat's hide
(Alley-Oop) He's the king of the jungle jive
(Look at that cave man go!!) (SCREAM)

He rides thru the jungle tearin' limbs offa trees
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Knockin' great big monstahs dead on their knees
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
The cats don't bug him cuz they know bettah
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Cuz he's a mean motah scootah and a bad go-gettah
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
(Alley-Oop) He's the toughest man there is alive
(Alley-Oop) Wears clothes from a wildcat's hide
(Alley-Oop) He's the king of the jungle jive
(Look at that cave man go!!) (SCREAM)

Thair he goes,
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Look at that cave man go
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
He sure is hip ain't he
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Like what's happening
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
He's too much
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Ride, Daddy, ride
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Hi-yo dinosawruh
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Ride, Daddy, ride
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Get 'em, man
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Like--hipsville
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)

Woad? About the ancient Welsh, Romans and Saxons. It should be in the database (see the Lyrics and Knowledge link at the top of the page). I think it was Adam McNaughton who had a nice precis of the interaction of the Babylonian/Assyrian/Persiam empires with their neighbours.

It's worth putting Rudyard Kipling into the search, he had some historical poems,some of which have been set to music.

The words

Secular
Jewish
& Sundayschool

don't sound as if they fit together. Any pair seem to include an oxymoron.
Enlighten me, please.

The War Song of the Ancient Britons aka "What's the use of wearing braces?", sung to the tune "Men of Harlech".
There's also "Goliath of Gath", full of lisping, straight from the Book of Samuel. Though sung to a Christian hymn tune, I'm sure that no rabbi could find any trace of us slipping in a bit of indoctrination as a sort of nasty surprise. Most children below the age of 100 or so think it id very funny. I do.

From the Short Sister's singing, a round:


NERO'S EXPEDITION
(Moondog)

Nero's expedition up the Nile
Failed ....
Because the water hyacinths ..
Had clogged the river
Denying Nero's vessels passage
Through the Sud of Nubia ......
