    Does anyone recall having to learn the following song in grade school?

    Toreador be on your guard
    Be on your guard with firm and steady hands
    Bright stars gaze from above
    And love is your reward
    Toreador on guard
    Tor - or - re - e- a - a- dor
    Toreador...........nowwwwwwww on guard!

    I can still hear the my grade school choir singing that song. Heck, it was a requirement to learn, and we sang it at a school assembly.

    I hope I remember the words correctly, if not.......oh well...forgive my failing mind. :chuckle

    I don't remember that one, Renee. But I vividly remember that it was a standard rule at our school to learn and sing all of our patriotic songs like,

    You're in the Army Now

    The Ballad of the United States Marines
    First to fight for right and freedom,
    then to keep our honor clean
    We will fight for right and honor
    of the United States Marines.

    My country Tis of Thee

    The Battle Hymn of the Republic

    The Stars and Stripes Forever.

    A tradition we should still keep. It means a lot to the young men and women who are laying their lives on the line for our freedom.
