Oh, la la la, hey banana,
Don't you slip on the skin,
Oh, la la la la, hey banana,
Womble up the rubbish and put it in the bin!

We have the solution ot the pollution,
I think it is easy to guess,
It is so amazing, instead of just lazing,
We certainly sweep up and clean the mess.

Oh, la la la, hey banana,
Don't you slip on the skin,
Oh, la la la la, hey banana,
Womble up the rubbish and put it in the bin!

Bungo plays the guitar now, he thinks he's a star now,
He sings to the coconut tree,
Whenever we feel glum, we play the steel drum
We certainly sing the night away.

Get out of the way of Madame Cholet,
She's baking and there's not much time:
The slightest delay will ruin the day,
There's only one thing on her mind.

And it's going to be the greatest occassion,
The evening of the Womble Year!
And it's going to be a big sensation;
Everybody will be here!

Roll back the carpet 'cause it Bungo's Birthday,
A little older and a bit more wise,
And there's going to be a big celebration,
And there's going to be a big surprise.

A feeling of fun will soon overcome
The members of the Womble Crowd.
For old and for young, the work is all done,
The music will be ever so loud.

And it's going to be the greatest occassion,
The evening of the Womble Year!
And it's going to be a big sensation;
Everybody will be here!

Roll back the carpet 'cause it Bungo's Birthday,
A little older and a bit more wise,
And there's going to be a big celebration,
And there's going to be a big surprise.

Roll back the carpet 'cause it Bungo's Birthday,
A little older and a bit more wise,
And there's going to be a big celebration,
And there's going to be a big surprise.

Down at the Barbershop (Singing In Harmony)

This song is from 'Superwombling', 'Best Of The Wombles' and 'The Wombles Christmas Party'.

Down at the barber shop,
Wimbledon is jumping to the harmony razzle-ma-tazz.
It may be a dream on a Hollywood theme,
But I'm really getting into the jazz.

It's so appreciably undeniably enjoyable when you're
Wombling to the real thing down at the Wimbledon barber shop,
Singing in harmony.

Voices are flying through the cool summer atmosphere,
We're standing on the corner of the street.
Always good to be vibrant by the old fire hydrant,
While the sun is providing the heat.

Sing high, sing low, gives you the impression
That the whole darn world is a paradise when you
Womble to the real thing down at the Wimbledon barber shop,
Singing in Harmony.

Singing for you.

Dreaming In The Sun (Orinoco's Song)

This song was from the album 'Wombling Songs'. It also came out on 'The Wombles Christmas Party'.

There are people on the common,
There is tennis on the lawn,
When you're wombling in the sunshine
You can get a little warm.

Hey, Hey, and I'm Dreaming in the Sun;
Give me forty winks,
Let me wake up when the work is done.

When they say I'm slightly portly,
They're not trying to insult,
But I have to womble harder
To achieve the same result.
So I need some consolation
In the middle of the day,
And after forty winks I know that's everything's OK.

Hey, Hey, and I'm Dreaming in the Sun;
Give me forty winks,
Let me wake up when the work is done.

And I'm sitting on the common
With my tidy bag at hand,
And though Great Uncle Bulgaria will never understand...

Hey, Hey, and I'm Dreaming in the Sun;
Give me forty winks,
Let me wake up when the work is done.

Exercise is Good For You (Laziness Is Not)

This song was originally recorded for the album 'Wombling Songs'. It is also available on 'The Ultimate Wombles Collection CD'.

Standing on your tiptoes, running on the spot,
Exercise is good for you, Laziness is not!
One, two, three, four, bouncing on your feet,l Where is Orinoco? -- Probably asleep!

Up in the morning for a five mile run,
Down to the river for a swim:
Biceps a-bulging, it's all good fun,
Chest out and keep your tummy in!

Jumping in your gym shoes, skipping with a rope,
If you haven't got the energy you haven't got a hope.
Running in the morning, (good for the thighs)
Running in the evening, (good for the eyes).

Physical exertion makes you strong,
Keeps you alert and slim:
Just keep skipping and you can't go wrong,
You'll be sound in mind and limb.

Left, right, left, right, up down, stop!
Is anybody tired yet? -- Tomsk is not!
Puffing like a steam train, running like a horse,
Is anyone for tennis now? -- Tomsk of course!

Poetry in motion, legs in line,
Pressing up and pressing down, four-four time.

This song is from the album 'Keep On Wombling'. 'Invitation To a Ping Pong Ball' is also available on 'The Ultimate Wombles Collection CD', 'Best Of The Wombles' and 'The Wombles Christmas Album'. It was not released as a single.

In the Alleyways of Peking and the streets of old Shanghai,
The restaurants do good business and the Rickshaws rattle by,
The Oriental Wombles fill the Chinese litter bins0
With nuts and bolts and boiling rice and old chop suey tins.

You're invited to the Ping-Pong Ball
In the Chinese Wombling Ping-Pong-Ball Hall.
You're invited to the Ping-Pong Ball
In the Chinese Wombling Ping-Pong-Ball Hall...

From the Yangtse Kyang Basin to the Shantung Mountain Hills
They exercise their Oriental litter-picking skills.
There's an ancient Womble Proverb which they sing to the Yellow Seas;
"He who cleans the countryside deserves to be Chinese."

You're invited to the Ping-Pong Ball
In the Chinese Wombling Ping-Pong-Ball Hall.
You're invited to the Ping-Pong Ball
In the Chinese Wombling Ping-Pong-Ball Hall...

All the harbour lights are shining and the band begins to play
The chopsticks hit the drums so hard that you jump out of the way,
Chinatown is moving to the Koto and the flute, And the sound of Shanghai Wombles eating crunchy bamboo shoots.

Look Out For the Giant

This song is about Orinoco dreaming about a litter crunching giant, Giant Polu. It is from 'Keep On Wombling' and was also released on to 'The Ultimate Wombles Collection CD'.

Look out for the giant, he's looking for you.
Look out for the giant, Polu.
Look out for the giant whatever you do,
Look out for the giant, Polu.

You can hear the crunching of his merciless feet,
He's even breathing smoky fumes all over the street,
There isnt any way you can escape from his grip,
He looks just like a giant walking, talking rubbish tip.

Look out for the giant, he's looking for you.
Look out for the giant, Polu.
Look out for the giant whatever you do,
Look out for the giant, Polu.

I saw him on the common with his big red eyes,
He trundled up behind me and he took me by surprise,
I knew I must be dreaming as we stood there in the mist,
And even though I knew he didn't really exist, I said...

Look out for the giant, he's looking for you.
Look out for the giant, Polu.
Look out for the giant whatever you do,
Look out for the giant, Polu.

Madame Cholet

'Madame Cholet' is from 'Wombling Songs' and 'The Ultimate Wombles Collection CD'. It is accompainied by strings and accordions.

When we're feeling hungry and we want to eat in style,
There's a certain little Womble Lady Fair.
Popping toadstool in the oven for a while,
The sweet aroma fills the twilight air.

Madame Cholet,
What's cooking with you today?
We think you're a real cool pie.
Madame Cholet,
As sweet as cafe au lait
From the tips of your toes to the twinkling in your eye.
Madame Cholet,
Don't go away, s'il vous plait,
We couldn't survive without you, that's no lie.
When we womble home in the evening
You'll be there by the kitchen door,
We'd like to say "Merci", Madame Cholet

When we get up in the morning and we join the breakfast queue,
We try to make the minimum of fuss.
For even though she shouts at us and she tells us what to do,
We know this little lady is for us.

Madame Cholet,
What's cooking with you today?
We think you're a real cool pie.
Madame Cholet,
As sweet as cafe au lait
From the tips of your toes to the twinkling in your eye.
Madame Cholet,
Don't go away, s'il vous plait,
We couldn't survive without you, that's no lie.
When we womble home in the evening
You'll be there by the kitchen door,
We'd like to say "Merci", Madame Cholet

Minuetto Allegretto

This is from 'Remember You're A Womble' and is also available from 'The Ultimate Wombles Collection CD', 'The Wombling Christmas Party', 'Best Of The Wombles', 'The Wombles Christmas Album', and 'Wombling Hits'.

Back in 1780, when Bulgaria was a lad,
There was minuetting in the morning and the evening
They were Minuetting Mad!
Mister Minuetting Mozart was the talk of the town,
And forgetting to be minuetting was letting the other minuetters down.

Oh, Womble to your partners, young Wombles were told,
If you you Minuetto Allegretto, you will live to be old.

Young Womble Bulgaria was listening with glee;
"If I Minuetto Allegretto, a very old wise Womble I shall be,"
Minuetting minutes later he was Wombling away,
'Though he used to Womble Allegretto, now it's Adante Cantabile!

Oh, Womble to your partners, young Wombles were told,
If you you Minuetto Allegretto, you will live to be old.

When the other Wombles were asleep at the dead of night,
He'd become a better minuetter by practising in the candlelight.
Wimbledon was aware there ws none that could beat
This incredible and amazing young Womble with Minuetting Feet!
