Remembrance Day

In Flander's Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flander's fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, tho poppies grow
In Flander's fields.

Liet. -Col. John McCrae


Poppy

Poppy we are but children small,
We are too little to do it all.

Children you may do your part.
Love each other is how you start.
Play without fighting.
Share your games and toys.
Be kind and thoughtful,
To all girls and boys.


Remembrance Day

We wear a poppy
On Remembrance Day,
And at eleven
We stand and pray.
Wreaths are put
Upon a grave.
As we remember
Our soldiers brave.


Little Poppy

Little poppy
Given to me,
Help me keep Canada
Safe and free.


I'll wear a little poppy,
As red as red can be,
To show that I remember
Those who fought for me.


Coming In On a Wing and a Prayer

Coming in on a wing and a prayer,
Look below there's our field over there.
Though there's one motor gone
We will still carry on,
Coming in on a wing and a prayer.


Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree

Don't sit under the apple tree
With anyone else but me,
With anyone else but me,
With anyone else but me,
No no no!
Don't sit under the apple tree
With anyone else but me,
TIll I come marching home.


The White Cliffs of Dover

There'll be bluebirds over
The White Cliffs of Dover,
Tomorrow just you wait and see.

There'll be love and laughter
And peace ever after,
Tomorrow when the world is free.


Are You Sleeping?
(to the tune of "Frere Jacques")

See the poppies
See the poppies
Oh so red
Oh so red
Growing on the hillside
Growing on the hillside
Soldiers lay dead
Soldiers lay dead

We remember
We remember
On this day
On this day
Soldiers on the hillside
Soldiers on the hillside
Far away
Far away
