Living it up in Greece

Now that you have learnt about many aspects of Ancient Greece, it's time to sing about it all. 

Here are the lyrics to a song called 'Living it up in Greece' (they are also in a word document below).  The music backing track is at the top of this page.  Listen to it and try to sing along to the song and perhaps add some actions.

 

Living it up in Greece

 

Take a trip on a plane
Fly down memory lane
Ancient Greece, life is good
Come on, meet the neighbourhood.

You get up go to school,
If you’re a boy then that’s the rule. 
But the girls stay at home
Learn to cook and feed the goats!

 

Underneath the Olive Tree
That is where we’re gonna be
As we watch the sun go down, down, down.
Then we’ll eat our fish for tea
And say thanks to Zeus
For letting us be free and
Living it up in Greece!

 

Take a trip on a plane
Fly down memory lane
Ancient Greece, life is good
Come on, meet the neighbourhood.

We keep clean, take a bath
All our friends - it’s quite a laugh!
But if you need to “go”
Could be sitting in a row (oh no!)

 

Underneath the Olive Tree
That is where we’re gonna be
As we watch the sun go down, down, down.
Then we’ll eat our fish for tea
And say thanks to Zeus
For letting us be free and
Living it up in Greece!

 

Living it up, living it up
Living it up in Greece
Get your chiton on
Like your tunic long
Kick off your sandals and sing this song!

 

Living it up, living it up
Living it up in Greece
Go see a play
Or dance all day
Try your luck in the Olympic Games!

 

Living it up, living it up
Living it up in Greece
Get your chiton on
Like your tunic long
Kick off your sandals and sing this song!

 

Living it up, living it up
Living it up in Greece
Go see a play
Or dance all day
Try your luck in the Olympic Games!

 

Living it up, living it up
Living it up in Greece
We’re living it up, living it up
Living it up in Greece.

Living it up, living it up
Living it up in Greece
