CASTLE FLAGS (a scarf activity song)

Music: Ron Hiller (RONNO)
Lyrics: Judy Millar

Once upon a time in days of old
There were knights in shining armor who were brave and true and bold
They protected king and castle and the whole community
So the castle flags could fly free in the breeze, in the breeze

Chorus:
OH, THE CASTLE FLAGS ARE FLYING FROM THE TOWERS, WAY UP HIGH
LET’S WAVE OUR CASTLE FLAGS, YOU AND I, YOU AND I (children wave scarves)
WAVE YOUR FLAG OVER HERE – MAKE BIG CIRCLES IN THE AIR
AND NOW FLY IT LIKE A BIRD, OVER THERE, OVER THERE
AND NOW SLOWLY, BACK AND FORTH, LET IT FLOAT DOWN TO THE GROUND
‘CUZ WHEN NIGHTTIME COMES, THE C A S T L E F L A G S C O M E D O W N
THEY COME DOWN

Something’s going on - a big parade
All the knights are on their horses, there’s a tournament today
The lead knight holds a banner and the trumpets blare
We are marching on the spot, flags flying high in the air!


Chorus:
OH, THE CASTLE FLAGS ARE FLYING . . .

We’re at the castle ball, so long ago
There are lords and ladies dancing in their ribbons and their bows
Let’s twirl around in circles, let your ribbons twirl
We go round and round and round, my head is in a whirl


Chorus:
OH, THE CASTLE FLAGS ARE FLYING FROM THE TOWERS, WAY UP HIGH
LET’S WAVE OUR CASTLE FLAGS, YOU AND I, YOU AND I (children wave scarves)
WAVE YOUR FLAG OVER HERE – MAKE (BIG) CIRCLES IN THE AIR
NOW FLY IT LIKE A BIRD, OVER THERE, OVER THERE
AND NOW VERY, VERY SLOWLY, LET IT FLOAT DOWN TO THE GROUND
‘CUZ IT’S NIGHTTIME NOW, SO C A S T L E F L A G S C O M E D O W N !
THEY COME DOWN
