Fine Arts Friday: Sing in the spring!

A month ago, we were cold and miserable and wondering if spring would ever arrive. But spring is finally here, and we shall sing! (Okay, we sang in March, too, huddled under our blankets.)

I didn’t like the folk song on the Ambleside rotation, so I picked “Mairzy Doats,” a song that my mom and grandma sang to me when I was a child. While not technically a folk song, it is (possibly) based on an English nursery rhyme. And it’s ridiculously fun to sing.


Lyrics (because you’ll need them!):

Mairzy doats and dozy doats
And liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn’t you?
Yes! Mairzy doats and dozy doats
and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn’t you?

If the words sound queer
And funny to your ear,
Unhealthy habits – Smoking hardens your blood vessels, making it purchase cialis on line difficult for the blood to flow flawlessly. The speed of the rise of sugar in the body decreases the cialis viagra generico male sexual hormone. Frankly speaking, this dysfunction is cialis no prescription canada not just a psychological problem in the body but it is also physical. Musli Power X-Tra is formulated using extracts of 8 viagra levitra online exotic herbs 1. A little bit jumbled and jivey
Sing “Mares eat oats
And does eat oats
And little lambs eat ivy”

Oh! Mairzy doats and dozy doats
And liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn’t you?
A kiddley divey too, wouldn’t you?

The hymn for the month is “Hallelujah, What a Savior.” There are many modern versions of this hymn, and of course, traditional versions with full choir and pipe organ. I found this version blends the best of both worlds for singing in our living room. It maintains the traditional form but is very singable. And they have a banjo.

Finally, the composer for the month is Sergei Rachmaninoff. This is a nice, brief biography from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Just a warning, we’ve already found that this playlist is mesmerizing to young kids. Don’t play it if you need little ones to put on their shoes and move!

Happy spring!
