Year 5 Summer Concert Song – Just like a Roman Lyrics

In circa forty three A.D.,
The Romans came from overseas,
And thanks to archaeology,
We know a lot about them.
Gonna tell you how to
(Part 1) Eat like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Eat like a Roman,
(Part 1) Drink like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Drink like a Roman,
(Part 1) Dress like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Dress like a Roman,
(Part 1) Think like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Think like a Roman,
(Part 1) Pray like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Pray like a Roman,
(Part 1) Build like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Build like a Roman,
Part 1) Slay like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Slay like a Roman,
Party like a Roman.
They were very fond of feasts, And always wanted more to chew up.
With wine and veg’tables and beasts, They stuff’d and stuff’d and then they threw up.
Rich Romans lik’d to dress with flair, In togas, cloaks and jewell’ry,
They would sometimes bleach their hair, With ash and vinegar and wee!
Chorus
They worshipp’d many diff’rent deities, For ev’ry aspect of their life,
Mighty Jupiter was king of these, And Juno was his wife.
The Roman’s building work was great, Their sewage system takes some beating.
The roads they laid were super straight, And they invented central heating.
Chorus
They excell’d themselves at war, And conquer’d many other nations,
Three hundred thousand troops or more,Took very good organisation.
The Romans lik’d to have a laugh, Gladiator fights and chariot races,
A visit to the public baths, Would put a smile upon their faces.
Gonna tell you how to
(Part 1) Eat like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Eat like a Roman,
(Part 1) Drink like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Drink like a Roman,
(Part 1) Dress like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Dress like a Roman,
(Part 1) Think like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Think like a Roman,
(Part 1) Pray like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Pray like a Roman,
(Part 1) Build like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Build like a Roman,
Part 1) Slay like a Roman, (Part 2, echo) Slay like a Roman,
Party like a Roman, Party like a Roman, Party like a Roman.
Just like a Roman.

Choir Performance at the 02

On Tuesday 6th February, the Edmund Waller School Choir headed to the 02 to perform as part of a 7000 strong children’s choir.  The children have been working very hard since September to learn 16 songs that lasted an hour!  They took part in a 3 hour long rehearsal in the afternoon, followed by the concert for an audience of over 10,000 people in the evening.  They sang absolutely brilliantly and they performed with great energy and enthusiasm!
