England- Bobby Shaftoe

Dear Friends, Church Aston Infant school in England entry song for 2012. We are singing a traditional song 'Bobby Shaftoe'. This song is about a sailor and his truelove. The song is said to originate from the north of England. We had fun dressing up as pirates. Here is the 'uncut' version done in one take! We are enjoying everyone's songs this year and watch them in our school assemblies. Best of Luck to all. Annie

Hi England,

Your video looks great!

The children look absolutely like tough pirates and I can definitely hear they were eager to perform well in the singing!

Lovely song!

Good luck on the voting from Belgium!

Oh, this is cute!
Great effort with the costumes and impressive how these kids know all the lines by heart, while a certain person in the right-hand corner ...

The introduction part is very Anne-like. Great you left it there for us.

And the colours! The i-family has done a great job in making them look bright and impressive.

Best of luck for the voting!
