World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 1st December – Christmas Songs #1: ‘Sing Ovy, Sing Ivy’ led by Bella Hardy

Band on the Wall’s doors may be shut for a while but you can still take part in our fun music learning programmes from the comfort of your own home.

Tune in every Tuesday at 6pm (UK time) to join the World Of Music Choir online! Sing traditional and modern songs, harmonies and rounds. We learn by ear so you don’t have to read music, but if you would like the score it can be downloaded from this dropbox, where we’ll also upload an mp3 of the song to sing-along to after the session!

This live event is interactive; you can comment and ask questions, and the video will be available after the workshop.

To view and add live comments, open this video in YouTube.

Email learning@bandonthewall.org to become an official choir member!


This Week’s Songs

Christmas is Coming (Round) (traditional)

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat
Please do put a penny in the old man’s hat
Please do put a penny in the old man’s hat

If you haven’t got a penny, a ha’penny will do
If you haven’t got a ha’penny then God bless you
If you haven’t got a ha’penny then God bless you

Sing Ovy, Sing Ivy (traditional)

My father gave me an acre of land
Sing ovy, sing ivy
My father gave me an acre of land
A bunch of green holly and ivy

I harrowed it with a bramble bush
Sing ovy, sing ivy
I harrowed it with a bramble bush
A bunch of green holly and ivy

I sowed it with two peppering-corns
Sing ovy, sing ivy
I sowed it with two peppering-corns
A bunch of green holly and ivy

I reaped it with my little penknife
Sing ovy, sing ivy
I reaped it with my little penknife
A bunch of green holly and ivy

I threshed it out with two beanstalks
Sing ovy, sing ivy
I threshed it out with two beanstalks
A bunch of green holly and ivy

I sent my rats to market with that
Sing ovy, sing ivy
I sent my rats to market with that
A bunch of green holly and ivy

My team of rats came rattling back
Sing ovy, sing ivy
With fifty bright guineas and an empty sack
And a bunch of green holly and ivy
