Ron jogged my memory of this on another thread. I now barely remember the first verse of this ridiculous primary song;

Piano plays one chord over and over with a warpath drumbeat rythum.

Book of Mormon stories that my teacher tells to me.
are about the Lamanites in Ancient history.
Long ago there fathers came from far across the sea.
Give this land if they live rightously.

I'm pretty sure there was a 2nd and possibly a 3rd verse. Can anyone help me with this. I want to have this ready to perform if my fam ever tries to say tscc never taught that American Indians where Lamanites. Also, The wife and I are going to find a way to rock it out on electric guitar and bass!

There were hand motions to it too.

Hitting your right fist against your left palm, miming a tomahawk.

And, if I can remember correctly, there was even a motion of putting your finger behind your head like a feather in a Native-American headdress.

Classy.

2nd verse:

Lamanites met others who were seeking liberty,
and the land soon welcomed all who wanted to be free.
Book of Mormon stories say that brothers we must be
Giv'n the land if we live righteously.

I can handle the silliness of this song, including the obvious stupidity of the brothers we must be and the silly hand movements. It's "Follow the Prophet" that scares me. Crazy, cult like chanting. Developing a generation of automatons.

Billy, Brittany - remember, no thinking allowed!!

priceless! I got to see all the amazing lyrics of my all time favorite primary song Popcorn Popping. The 'It wasn't really so, but it seemed to be' pretty much sums up my childhood brainwashing.

That was the only Primary song I could bear.

It reminded me of "Hamms, the beer refreshing."

I always wanted to echo, "From the land of sky-blue wah-ah-terrrs..."

One of many. I liked the old songs that they sang when I was little.

I liked "Whenever I hear the song of a bird . . . " That song. I can't remember the name. I didn't like the newer songs when I taught primary.

Book of Mormon stories that my teacher lies to me
Are about the Lamanites who have no history
Long ago their fathers didn't come across the sea
Joseph Smith made it up
To get money
