When you and I were young, Maggie!

Dear friends,
I'd like to carry on the "country" music theme so you can listen to another popular song. Its name is When you and I were young, Maggie! George W. Johnson, a school teacher, wrote the lyrics to this song in 1864 as a poem for Maggie Clark, his young wife of 23 who was dying of Tuberculosis. She died in 1865 before she could hear the words put to music by J.A.Butterfield in 1866. This was an extremely popular song up through the 1920's.
The song is easy and I hope that you will like it!
Many hugs and kisses, Reny

I wandered today to the hill, Maggie,
To watch the scene below -
The creek and the creaking old mill, Maggie,
As we used to, long ago.
The green grove is gone from the hill, Maggie,
Where first the daisies sprung;
The creaking old mill is still, Maggie,
Since you and I were young.

And now we are aged and grey, Maggie,
And the trials of life nearly done,
Let us sing of the days that are gone, Maggie,
When you and I were young...

When Irish Eyes are Smiling

Dear friends and partners,
Here is another Irish song which can be useful for you and your pupils. "When Irish Eyes are smiling" is written by Chauncey Olcott and George Graff, Jr. It's a lighthearted song in tribute to Ireland. The melody and the lyrics are easy so you can learn it with your pupils.
Enjoy the song!
Kind regards, Bulgarian Team
When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, 'tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away...
