Piano music generally presents two distinct challenges: 1) Chord-Based Music, and 2) Linear-Based Music. Piece from both categories should be introduced to young piano students. Bach’s Invention No. 1, falls into the linear-based music category – two distinct lines that complement each other. It is masterfully written and a rewarding challenge for students.

Lyrics

Up on the housetop reindeer pause
Out jumps good old Santa Claus
Down thru the chimney with lots of toys
All for the little ones, Christmas joys

Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click
Down thru the chimney with good Saint Nick

French Lyrics

Sur le pont d’Avignon,
L’on y danse, l’on y danse.
Sur le pont d’Avignon,
L’on y danse tout en rond.

Les beaux messieurs font comme ça,
Et puis encore comme ça.

Sur le pont d’Avignon,
L’on y danse, l’on y danse.
Sur le pont d’Avignon,
L’on y danse tout en rond.

Les belles dames font comme ça,
Et puis encore comme ça.

Sur le pont d’Avignon,
L’on y danse, l’on y danse.
Sur le pont d’Avignon,
L’on y danse tout en rond.

History

Authors suggest that The Old Gray Mare is based upon the performance of Lady Suffolk, the first horse recorded as trotting a mile in less than two and a half minutes. It is most likely, however, that the song originated as a nineteenth century campaign ditty which was composed as an epithet of Baltimore mayor Ferdinand Latrobe by the Democratic Party political operative/appointee Thomas Francis McNulty.

Lyrics

The old gray mare,
She ain’t what she used to be
Ain’t what she used to be,
Ain’t what she used to be
The old gray mare,
She ain’t what she used to be
Many long years ago.
