Chant for what you love....!

The One Show Team | 16:15 UK time, Thursday, 13 August 2009

Tonight's (13/08/09) guest was the poet Ian McMillan who has recently judged a competition called 'Get On', where footie fans were asked to create new chants for their team.

Inspired by this, we've decided to run our own creative chanting challenge - with a twist...

What you have to do:

Write a one-verse chant to the tune of 'When the Saints Go Marching In', about anything other than football.

Make your chant about something that you feel passionate about. For instance you might like to write it in honour of your hometown, favourite food or hobby.

Here's a version you can adapt...

Oh, when the saints go marching in
Oh, when the saints go marching in
Lord, how I want to be in that number
When the saints go marching in

Remember, don't make it any longer than one verse and your entry must be your own original creation!

Please don't forget to leave your name and location as we'll be reading out our favourite chant/s on tomorrow's show.

Happy chanting!
