There has been some demand in the past few months via comments added to the old Bandlo post for the the girls’ Primary class song from the 1960s. I finally remembered to look it up – I must have sung it when I was in Primary, but I don’t remember it at all:
To make them visible to search engines, the words are:
Words by Mabel Gabbott;
Music by Faye Glover Petersen
The first thing in the morning and all day long
I shall be a Gaynote and sing a happy song;
I shall greet the new day and all it brings
With a cheerful face and a heart that sings.
Like blossoms in the springtime and firelight bright,
I shall fill the home with radiance and light;
Giving joy to others in all I do
I shall be a Firelight the whole day through.
Like sunshine lifting shadows throughout the land
I will serve with gladness and be a Merrihand;
I will give full measure of love each day;
When my hands are willing my heart is gay.
