World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 14th July – ‘Thousands or More’ 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 Song: Thousands or More
(Trad, from the singing of The Copper Family, Rottingdean)

The time passes over more cheerful and gay
Since we’ve learnt a new song to drive sorrows away
Sorrows away, sorrows away
Sorrows away
Since we’ve learnt a new song to drive sorrows away

Bright Phoebe awakes so high up in the sky
With her red, rosy cheeks and her sparkling eye
Sparkling eye, sparkling eye
Sparkling eye
With her red, rosy cheeks and her sparkling eye

If you ask for my credit you’ll find I have none
With my bottle and friend you will find me at home
Find me at home, find me at home
Find me at home
With my bottle and friend you will find me at home

Although I’m not rich and although I’m not poor
I’m as happy as them that’s got thousands or more
Thousands or more, thousands or more
Thousands or more
I’m as happy as them that’s got thousands or more
