We are playing boomwhackers and guitars for this piece during the chorus only. Notation and lyrics below.

For the rest of the song, we will be miming a drama scenario about power as depicted in the song (royalty vs servants). Those in the position of power will be wearing their Venentian masks as created in visual arts.

Students will get a chance to have a go at parts (guitars, boomwhackers, miming) during class. Roles will be confirmed next lesson (Tues May 26th Period 6). We will be performing for the Multicultural Day assembly on Friday May 29th during school inshallah.

All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we’re going down
They’ve got
All the right moves and all the right faces
So yeah, we’re going down

 

 

 

 

 

Give Me A Home Among The Gum Trees

For a video of the song with lyrics click here

Chorus (singing)

Give me a home among the gum trees
With lots of plum trees
A sheep or two, a k-kangaroo
A clothesline out the back
Verandah out the front
And an old rocking chair.

For the rest of the song, we will just say and tap the following rhythm:

Tahn TahnTahnshhh

“Tahn            Tahn          Tahn       Shhhh”

Do the ‘shhhh’ quietly and do not tap your knees :-) (it means don’t make a sound)

But remember to do the kookaburra singing, just like the song does! :-)

 

With My Swag All On My Shoulder

With A Swag All On My Shoulder - Traditional Australian Song

When first I left Old England’s shore (pointing out to sea)
Such yarns as we were told
As how folks in Australia
Could pick up lumps of gold (lift hands in the air)
So, when we got to Melbourne town (pointing out to sea)
We were ready soon to slip (fist pump to side)
And get even with the captain (shake finger, tsk-tsk, as though the audience is in trouble!)
All hands scuttled from the ship (scrub the deck with hands)

(pick up swag/sack/bag prop…)

CHORUS:
With my swag all on my shoulder (have sack over shoulder)
Black billy in my hand (hold hand out in fist)
I travelled the bush of Australia (walk on the spot)
Like a true-born native man (muscle pose)

(drop swag/sack/bag prop at feet…)

We steered our course for Geelong town (steer a ship)
Then north west to Ballarat
Where some of us got mighty thin (pencil pose – make yourself as thin as possible)
And some got sleek and fat (spread arms out, bow legs)
Some tried their luck at Bendigo (pretend to dig with shovel)
And some at Fiery Creek
I made a fortune in a day (count all your bills)
And spent it in a week (shrug shoulders)

(pick up swag/sack/bag prop…)

CHORUS x 2

Year 1 Song and Dance – Walk the Dinosaur

Lyrics below :)

Walk the Dinosaur – By Was (Not Was)

 

Boom, boom, uka-lucka-lucka-boom,

Boom, boom, uka-lucka-boom-boom.

Boom, boom, uka-lucka-lucka-boom,

Boom, boom, uka-lucka-

It was a night like this, 40 million years ago,

Was so brand new, it was nothing like we know.

The animals are large, the plants are larger still,

I was born inside my cave, going slowly nuts until

I walk the dinosaur…

I walk the dinosaur…

 

Open the door, get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur.

Open the door, get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur.

Open the door, get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur.

Open the door, get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur.

 

Boom, boom, uka-lucka-lucka-boom,

Boom, boom, uka-lucka-boom-boom.

Boom, boom, uka-lucka-lucka-boom,

Boom, boom, uka-lucka-

It was a night of fun, we have a barbecue each night,

Our beds are made of rock and our hair is such a fright!

We haven’t any TV, we don’t have a radio,

Dad chases things with a great big club and sometimes us and so

We walk the dinosaur…

We walk the dinosaur…

 

Open the door, get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur.

Open the door, get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur.

Open the door, get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur.

Open the door, get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur.

 

Sometimes we have to hide from great gigantic beasts

And if we’re lucky…the beasts become our feast

They say when you’re in Rome, do as the Romans do

So if we come across a dinosaur we do this, wouldn’t you?

We walk the dinosaur…

We walk the dinosaur…

 

Open the door, get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur.

Open the door, get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur.

Open the door, get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur.

Open the door, get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur.

 

Boom, boom, uka-lucka-lucka-boom,

Boom, boom, uka-lucka-boom-boom.

Boom, boom, uka-lucka-lucka-boom,

Boom, boom, uka-lucka-boom-boom.

Boom, boom, uka-lucka-lucka-boom,

Boom, boom, uka-lucka-boom-boom.

Boom, boom, uka-lucka-lucka-boom,

Boom, boom, uka-lucka-boom-boom.

Lyrics below :) Actions in italics. Sing the song, and fill in the gaps Ms Patmore makes by saying (not singing) the words below!

 

What Muslims Say - By Siddiqa Akilo and Nazzie Pater-Rov

When Muslims meet, they always greet.

They say As Salam Alaykum. (wave)

They try to be good the way they should,

They say As Salam Alaykum. (wave)

Before Muslims eat, they take a seat.

They say Bismillah, (pretending to eat)

They try to be good, the way they should.

They say Bismillah. (pretending to eat)

 

When Muslims sneeze, or feel a breeze,

They say Alhamdulilah. (sneeze on elbow)

They try to be good, the way they should,

They say Alhamdulilah. (sneeze on elbow)

When they hear “achoo,” they don’t say “bless you,”

They say Yarhamakullah. (comfort person nearby with tap on shoulder)

They try to be good the way they should,

They say Yarhamakullah. (comfort person nearby with tap on shoulder)

 

When Muslims can, they make their plans,

They say Inshallah. (shrug)

They try to be good, the way they should,

They say Inshallah. (shrug)

When Muslims see things of beauty,

They say Mashallah, (hands in the air, looking up)

They try to be good the way they should,

They say Mashallah. (hands in the air, looking up)

 

When Muslims cheer, they make Takbeer,

They say Allahu Akbar. (cup hands on ears)

They try to be good, the way they should,

They say Allahu Akbar. (cup hands on ears)

All through the day, good Muslims pray.

They remember what to say. (cup hands to pray)

They try to be good, the way they should,

They remember what to say. (cup hands to pray)
