We, the disinherited of this land, we who have been oppressed so long, are tired of going through the long night of captivity. And now we are reaching out for the daybreak of freedom and justice and equality.

Martin Luther King (1957-1968)

Notes

This song came into being through a discussion on the ETJ Activites List about how to get young Japanese children to say sorry to each other when appropriate in English.

For children to use any language it must feel natural for them to do so. Children are more likely to want to use language when it impresses them or captures their imagination. Whether this song does either remains to be seen. It hasn't been used in any children's classes yet. Feel free to try it out!

Currently it features an interlude with sound effects. Children may enjoy shouting "I'm sorry!" after each one.

If you do use the song please contact me and I'll post the comments below. Most of the words were put together by Ailsa (hence the name).
