Old song, new lyrics!

Old song, new lyrics!

It’s great fun to write your own songs.

An even easier activity is writing new lyrics to an old tune!

  • Choose a well-loved song
  • This song could be anything: perhaps Elvis, the Beatles, or a traditional song such as She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain
  • Print out the lyrics so residents can familiarise themselves with the song
  • Then encourage residents to come up with new lyrics about a chosen theme, or perhaps about their home, family, a holiday etc
