8 Songs That Every Child Should Know
Say we be caught in the stormiest weather, We 're of a mind that we '11 stand it together; Sickness, misfortune, and trouble and pain, All to our love shall be nothing but gain. Annie of Tharau, my sun and sunshine, This life of mine will I throw around thine.
Straight as a tree that, rising on high, Wards off the hail and the rain from the sky, So shall our love for each other be strong, Love will protect us, whatever go wrong. Annie of Tharau, my kingdom, my wealth, Soul of my body and blood of my health.
Say you should ever be parted from me, Say that you dwelt where the sun they scarce see, Where you go I go, o'er oceans and lands, Prisons and fetters and enemies' hands. Annie of Tharau, my sun and sunshine, This life of mine will I throw around thine.
Auld Lang Syne*
Composed for the overture to the opera of Rosina, about 1782. Words of second and third stanzas may have been, probably were, written by Robert Burns. Words were adapted to music by Thomas in 1799.
