Fun With Names

In honor of Fun with Names Day, I present to you two songs about Cindy.

I can remember my Dad singing the chorus of this song to me when I was little.


Cindy Oh Cindy

Cindy, o Cindy!
Cindy, don’t let me down!
Write me a letter soon,
And I’ll be homeward bound!

I joined the navy to see the world;
But nowhere could I find
A girl as sweet as Cindy,
The girl I left behind.
I’ve sailed the wide world over,
Can’t get her out of my mind.

Cindy, o Cindy!
Cindy, don’t let me down!
Write me a letter soon,
And I’ll be homeward bound!

I see her sweet face in ev’ry wave,
Her lips kiss ev’ry breeze.
Her lovin’ arms reach out for me
Though calm and stormy seas.
At night, I pace the lonely deck,
Caressed by memories.

Cindy, o Cindy!
Cindy, don’t let me down!
Write me a letter soon,
And I’ll be homeward bound!

I know, my Cindy is waiting,
As I walk the deck, alone.
Her lovin’ arms reach out for me.
Soon, I’ll be headin’ home.
Then, my sailin’ days will be over,
And no more will I roam.


Cindy, o Cindy!
Cindy, don’t let me down!
Write me a letter soon,
And I’ll be homeward bound!


I love it when the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sings this song. It's fun to watch the clap at the end!!

One, two, three, four…
I wish I was an apple
A-hangin' on a tree
And every time my Cindy passed
She'd take a bite of me

Get along, home, Cindy
Cindy, get along home
Get along home, Cindy
Cindy, I'll marry you some time

Cindy got religion
She had it once before
But when she heard my ole banjo
She's the first one on the floor

Get along, home, Cindy
Cindy, get along home
Get along home, Cindy
Cindy, I'll marry you some time

She told me that she loved me
She called me sugar plum
She throwed her arms around me
I thought my time had come!

Get along, home, Cindy
Cindy, get along home
Get along home, Cindy
Cindy, I'll marry you some time
Get along home

Wished I had a dollar
Wished I had a dime
I'd buy a jar of cider
And stay happy all the time

Get along, home, Cindy
Cindy, get along home
Get along home, Cindy
Cindy, I'll marry you some time

The last time I saw Cindy
She had a funny look
She opened her mouth and then she said
Ya'll sign my autograph book

Get along, home, Cindy
Cindy, get along home
Get along home, Cindy
Cindy, I'll marry you some time
Get along, home, Cindy
Cindy, get along home
Get along home, Cindy
Cindy, I'll marry you some time



Do you know a song with your name in it??

I like the second song because we sang this when I was in Madrigals in HS. Then when I was at BYU the Mens Chorus would sing it...which was directed by Mack Wilberg at the time, so fun to see them sing it!

I can't think of any song with my name in it. :( It would be fun if there was.

I have a song with my name in it! It's one my mom made up. You just insert anyone's name. Ok, I have two actually. :)

Hey there Aprilyn, let's you and me,
Go climb a big, big apple tree.
Pick Mom some apples,for her to bake,
eat 'em green you get a tummy ache.

An apple for you, an apple for me.
We'll eat and we'll eat 'till we're full as can be.

An apple for me, and apple for you,
I hope all the worms are gone, don't you.

Second song is--
A- a- a- Aprilyn, beautiful Aprilyn, you're the only g-g-g-gal that I adore. When the m-moon shines over the cow shed, I'll be waiting at the k-k-k-kitchen door.
