GUEST,Murpholly History - BBC's 'Singing Together' (262* d) ADD: The Cricket's Wedding 26 Oct 10

As a headteacher my father saved copies of most of Singing Together Books which I still possess and so Autumn Term 1959 has The Cricket's Wedding (which was actually Rhythm and Melody Section). Is this the one you are searching


O the cricket weds today, the mosquitto's daughter
Shufling comes the little louse, best man to the bridegroom
Hopping comes the nimble flea for to be the bridesmaid
Animals both great and small come as guests invited

Second fiddler is the stork with the turkey leading
Hornets play the double bass froggy is the flautist
Merrily the monkey jumps dancing to the polka
While that rogue the old screech owl plays upon the bagpipe

And the wolf the butcher man brought six big fat oxen
And not satisfied with that also fifty piglets
Then the goat she capered in cooked a tasty goulash
But before the meal was served lo the cricket vanished
