Canal Foot Song

Performed by Year 6 : Church Walk School: 6/7/2017

Chorus

Canal foot we have childhood memories,

Canal Foot! Canal Foot! (x2)

1.

One step and two steps then dip your toe in

Learning to swim your dad says: “Jump in!”

With a bike inner tube wrapped round and round you

Don’t swim past the nets or you’ll go down

Chorus

Canal foot we have childhood memories,

Canal Foot! Canal Foot! (x2)

2.

Step in the water with wriggling cold feet

Fish would come up and admire the treat

Reach down and snatch as quick as you can

Long flexi fluke in the blonde damp sand

Chorus

Canal foot we have childhood memories,

Canal foot canal foot (x2)

3.

Watching TV through the blurry window

One of the only TVs in the bay

Owned by the pub and it’s kindly shared

Muffin the mule on a Sunday night

Chorus

Canal foot we have childhood memories,

Canal foot canal foot (x2)

4.

Stepping and running on cold wet sand

Shoe slowly slips in the deep underground

So sad but so soon what will my parents say

Maybe I’ll just have to walk away

Chorus

Canal foot we have childhood memories,

Canal foot canal foot (x2)

5.

Climbing the steep and loose Devils Thumb

Don’t dare look down or you’ll spoil the fun

Here comes the postman he’s got a letter

The Thumb goes BOOM at 12 a clock noon!

Chorus

Canal foot we have childhood memories,

Canal foot canal foot (x2)

6.

Shelling the shrimps for pocket money

Fumbling fingers, numbing pain

Go to Mrs. Neve’s on canal side

Now as a treat we can buy our sweets

Chorus

Canal foot we have childhood memories,

Canal foot canal foot (x2)
