Kilninie Club Virtual Lanimer Reception

As a way of taking part in the Virtual Lanimer Reception, we would like you to try and learn some of these songs and join us to record them, on video, on Sunday 29th August at 3pm in Greyfriars Church. There are four songs to sing, press play on the icon and then the words to go with the tune are underneath.

 

Somewhere over the Rainbow

 

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
There's a land that i heard of
Once in a lullaby...

Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue
And the dreams
That you dare to dream
Really do come true

Someday i'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the
Clouds are far behind me

Where troubles melt
Like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why, then
Oh, why can't i...

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the sky
Why, oh, why can't i.....

 

Walking on Sunshine

Ow!

Yeah... Yeah
I used to think
Maybe you loved me
Now baby i'm sure

And i just can't wait
'Til the day
When you knock on my door

Now every time
I go for the mailbox
I gotta hold myself down

'Cause i just can't wait
'Til you write me
You're comin' around

Now i'm walkin' on sunshine
Woah-oh
I'm walkin' on sunshine
Woah-oh

I'm walkin' on sunshine
Woah-oh
And don't it feel good
Hey, alright now

And don't it feel good
Hey, yeah

I used to think
Maybe you loved me
Now i know that it's true

And i don't wanna spend
My whole life
Just a-waitin' for you

Now i don't want you
Back for the weekend
Not back for a day
No, no, no

I said baby
I just want you back
And i want you to stay
Oh, yeah

I'm walkin' on sunshine
Woah-oh
I'm walkin' on sunshine
Woah-oh
I'm walkin' on sunshine
Woah-oh

And don't it feel good
Hey, alright now
And don't it feel good
Yeah, oh baby
And don't it feel good

Walkin' on sunshine
Walkin' on sunshine
I feel alive, i feel a love
I feel a love
That's really real

I feel alive, i feel a love
I feel a love
That's really real

I'm on sunshine, baby
Ow! Oh, yeah
I'm on sunshine, baby
Ow!

I'm walkin' on sunshine
Woah-oh
I'm walkin' on sunshine
Woah-oh
I'm walkin' on sunshine
Woah-oh

And don't it feel good
Hey, alright now
And don't it feel good
I'll say it, i'll say it
I'll say it again now
And don't it feel good

Hey... Yeah now
And don't it feel good
Oh, don't it, don't it
Don't it, don't it, don't it
Don't it feel good

I'll say it, i'll say it
I'll say it again now
And don't it feel good
Oh, don't it, don't it
Don't it, don't it, don't it
And don't it feel good

Now tell me, tell me
Tell me again now
And don't it feel good
Oh... Yeah now
And don't it feel good

 

Sing a Rainbow

Red and yellow and pink and green
Purple and orange and blue
I can sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow too

Listen with your eyes
Listen with your ears
And sing everything you see
I can sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow
Sing along with me

Red and yellow and pink and green
Purple and orange and blue
we can sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow too

Listen with your eyes
Listen with your ears
And sing everything you see
You can sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow
Sing along with me

Red and yellow and pink and green
Purple and orange and blue
We can sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow too

 

Rainbow Connection

(start singing at around 18 seconds).

Why are there so many
Songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side
Rainbow's are visions
But only illusions
And rainbows have nothing to hide
So we've been told and some Choose to believe it
But I know they're wrong wait and see
Someday we'll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

Who said that every wish
Would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star
Somebody thought of that
And someone believed it
Look what it's done so far
What's so amazing
That keeps us star gazing
And what do we think we might see
Someday we'll find it
That Rainbow Connection
The lovers the dreamers and me

All of us under its spell
We know that it's probably magic

Have you been half asleep
And have you heard voices
I've heard them calling my name
Is this the sweet sound that call's the young sailors
The voice might be one and the same

I've heard it too many times to ignore it
Its something that I'm supposed to be
Someday we'll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

La, lalala, lalala
La la la la la la la la
