GeoffLawes Kid’s Songs About Franco & Sp.Civil War (5) Kid’s Songs About Franco & Sp.Civil War 13 Oct 18


Does anyone know any children’s songs or playground chants about Franco and the Spanish Civil War? I have looked in “The Law And Language Of Schoolchildren” by Iona & Peter Opie where Hitler and Mussolini get plenty of mentions but I found nothing about the Spanish Civil War and Franco. In the Mudcat permathread “Songs In English About The Spanish Civil War” I have posted details of one song called “ The Spanish People “ which was sent to me by Clare Roberts back in 2012;

THE SPANISH PEOPLE
words - Anon, music - Samuel Pokrass

The Spanish people defend their right
For freedom and progress and truth they fight,
Now shall we delay while our comrades die
To strengthen our peace and our liberty?

Against the Hitlers, the Mussolinis!
Against the fascist enemy!
For peace and progress, for truth and freedom,
For people's true democracy!

Against the Hitlers, the Mussolinis!
Against the fascist enemy!
For peace and progress, for truth and freedom,
For people's true democracy!
