Wellington Goes to Waterloo

This song is from 'Remember You're A Womble'. It is available on 'Best Of The Wombles' and 'The Ultimate Wombles Collection CD'.

It was early one morning, the fish were jumping high,
The policemen were in their uniforms, there were aeroplanes in the sky,
Young Wellington raised his glasses to the sky of ever-so-blue,
Saying "Let's collect some engine numbers down at Waterloo"

A day-off comes so seldom in a Womble's working year,
That they like to make the most of them whenever they appear,
So he put away his Tidy Bag and joined the breakfast queue,
Saying, "Soon I'll be London Town, down at Waterloo"

Ooh, Ticket Collector, ticket-collecting all day long,
If you let me look at the engines, I'll sing you a Wombling Song.

So he wandered on to Platform Six, his notebook in his paw,
He cleaned his glasses with a rag he found upon the floor,
Just then a mighty Pullman Train came rattling into Town,
So Wellington whipped his notebook out and got the number down.

Ooh, Ticket Collector, ticket-collecting all day long,
If you let me look at the engines, I'll sing you a Wombling Song.

The trains pulled in and out again, 'til Wellington's book filled up,
So he poured his thermos flask of tea into his plastic cup,
He assessed the situation as he sipped the steaming brew,
"It's so nice collecting engine numbers, down at Waterloo."

Wellington Womble

This song is from 'Wombling Songs' It is not available on any of the other compilation albums, and was not released on single either.

Oh they call him Wellington Womble
and he's ever-so-rather shy,
And he looks through great big spectacles
At the ever-so-azure sky.
And he's ever-so-rather brainy,
And he's ever-so-rather keen,
He's the ever-so-rathest, keenest, brainiest Womble you have seen.

He's respectful and obedient,
And he does as he's always told;
His great big cap and muffling scarf protect him from the cold.
And he's ever-so-softly spoken,
And he's ever-so-slightly small,
He's the ever-so-slightest, softest-spokenest Womble of them all.

Ooh, wombling along, wombling along.
Ooh, wombling along, wombling along...
Oh he's ever-so-conscientious,
Always wombling with a will;
The care he takes would probably make a lesser Womble ill.

Wipe Those Womble Tears From Your Eyes

This song is from 'Keep On Wombling'. 'Wipe Those Womble Tears From Your Eyes' is available on 'Best Of The Wombles' and 'The Ultimate Wombles Collection CD'.

Wipe those Womble-Tears from your eyes
Wipe those Womble-Tears from your eyes
If nobody wants to know you I'll be here to sympathise
Won't you wipe those Womble-Tears from your eyes.

If the worries of the world are on your shoulders,
And your Womble-feet keep dragging on the ground,
If the candles that you make won't fit the holders,
Or your jelly will not set, don't let it bring you down.

Wipe those Womble-Tears from your eyes
Wipe those Womble-Tears from your eyes
If nobody wants to know you I'll be here to sympathise
Won't you wipe those Womble-Tears from your eyes.

If you can't keep your campfire burning,
And you don't remember where you left your hat,
Let your Womble-Wagon-wheels keep a-turning,
Pull yourself to-Womble-gether and remember where you're at.

Wipe those Womble-Tears from your eyes
Wipe those Womble-Tears from your eyes
If nobody wants to know you I'll be here to sympathise
Won't you wipe those Womble-Tears from your eyes.

Womble Burrow Boogie

Until recently, I had no idea about this song. I have not heard it, seen it any where else or got the lyics for it. If you could please help me, e-mail me (please!!).

Womble of the Universe

This song is from 'Keep On Wombling'. It is also available on 'The Ultimate Wombles Collection CD' and 'Best Of The Wombles'. Another dream from Ornoco. He is an astronaut this time.

Well I took off from the Space Station
And I didn't know where I was bound,
I looked out the window at all of my friends,
They were waving from down on the ground,
And nobody's going to make me come down:

I'm the Womble of the Universe, The stars are in my eyes
The Womble of the Universe
The Captain of the Skies, The Captain of the Skies.

I was travelling faster than lightning
Through the middle of the Milky Way,
I was eating the cucumber sandwiches
Given to me by Madame Cholet.
Well I'm really flying high now,
I'm miles now from the ground,
And nobody's going to make me come down.

I'm the Womble of the Universe, The stars are in my eyes
The Womble of the Universe
The Captain of the Skies, The Captain of the Skies.

As I flew my clockwork rocket ship,
I listened to the radio
And even though it was a clockwork rocket ship,
They were speaking to me from below.
"Are you never coming down now?"
I heard everyone say,
"If you want to come down, you know it's O.K."

Wombles Everywhere

This is from 'Wombling Songs'. It is not available on any compilation albums, but it was released on single along with 'The Wombling Song' in 1974.

Well you may already know it
But we're saying it again,
We are not the only Wombles to be seen:
There are Wombles in America,
There are Wombles down in Spain,
There are Wombles from Australia to East Cheam:

We've got Wombles everywhere,
North, South, East and West,
Though personally we're from Wimbledon
'Cause Wimbledon is best.

And down among the icicles,
Where the polar bears hang out,
There is very little wombling to be done,
But some healthy Womble Eskimos,
Look hopefully about,
Although wombling's much more comfortable in the sun.

We've got Wombles everywhere,
North, South, East and West,
Though personally we're from Wimbledon
'Cause Wimbledon is best.

In the hills of Bonnie Scotland,
Where the Loch Ness waters wash
Live the Wombles of the old McWomble Clan:
They eat porridge every morning
With a dram of orange squash
And a slice or two of steaming haggis flan.
(Och Aye!)

We've got Wombles everywhere,
North, South, East and West,
Though personally we're from Wimbledon
'Cause Wimbledon is best.

Wombles on Parade

This song is from 'Superwombling'. It is also available on 'The Ultimate Wombles Collection CD' and 'The Wombles Christmas Album'.

Drill can be a thrill,
If you've got the inclination to perform to regulation you'll be there.
... can keep you fit,
It's a feeling of elation to be moving in formation on the square.

Oh, they say that the discipline is good for the soul,
It's a thousand miles away from rock n' roll.

The mad band is convening on the corner,
The music is waiting to be played.
Come on along, get your feet moving,
The Wombles are on parade!
The tall brass are saluting to the colours,
The ladies are reclining in the shade.
Come on along, get your boots on,
The Wombles are on parade!

Please stand at ease,
For nothing quite relaxes like the boots and tenor saxes of the band.
The sound is all around,
And it's pointless to suggest that Alexander's was the best band in the land.

When you hear the euphonium you can't forget
That it's just like dancing if you keep in step.

Wombling Along (link piece)

This song is from 'Wombling Songs'. This is a weird song type thing. I'm not sure what it is for. These are roughly the words, but I might have heard some wrong. You can download the whole 45 second link if you want. The notice on the main Sound Page applies here.

Oo wombling along, wombling along
Oo wombling along, wombling along
Oo wombling along, wombling along.

Wombling in the Rain

This song is from 'Remember You're A Womble'. 'Wombling in the Rain' is also available on 'The Ultimate Wombles Collection CD', 'Keep On Wombling' and 'Best Of The Wombles'.

Some people follow the sun, some people cry when it rains,
But we like a shower, 'cause it clears the air,
And we just don't care 'cause we've got an umbrella:

Wombling in the Rain makes you feel so good,
You really should be inside,
Wombling in the Rain makes you feel so fine,
I feel like Wombling in the Rain

Snow in the middle of June,
Ice in the middle of May,
Lightning is lovely if you let it be,
It's like poetry,
As you blunder through the thunder.

Wombling in the Rain makes you feel so good,
You really should be inside,
Wombling in the Rain makes you feel so fine,
I feel like Wombling in the Rain

Meteorologically speaking, we hardly ever grumble or groan,
And even when our Tidy Bags are leaking, we laugh about it all the way home.

Wombling Merry Christmas

This song is from the 'Keep On Wombling'. It is available on 'The Wombles Christmas Album', 'Wombling Hits', 'The Wombles Christmas Party' , 'Best Of The Wombles' and 'The Ultimate Wombles Collection CD'.

Open your eyes, look to the skies when you're lonely,
There will be stars shining for you.
Sleepers awake, it's getting late, snow is falling.
The whole wide world is wombling too.

All day long we will be wombling in the snow,
We wish you a Wombling Merry Christmas.
All day long we will be laughing as we go.
We wish you a Wombling Merry Christmas.

Under the ground there is the sound of a symphony.
The lights are low, the fire is bright.
Wombling through, I'll tune into you, you tune into me.
We'll send a message into the night.

Wombling White Tie and Tails

Wombling White Tie and Tails is from the Album 'Superwombling'. It is also on 'The Ultimate Wombles Collection CD', 'Best Of The Wombles', 'The Wombles Christmas Album' and 'Wombling Hits'.

I've always had a thing about Fred Astaire,
Tapping like a telegraph and dancing on air,
He told me all you needed was a little bit of syncopation.

I let my imagination take me away,
Ginger Womble Rogers is Madame Cholet,
And with my cast of thousands I'll womble across the screen.

Sing, sing, sing like a womble,
Dance, dance, dance like a womble.
You're an entertainer from the head down,
To your wombling white tie and tails.

From the Hollywood set to the Broadway stage,
Everybody tells me that I'm good for my age,
I may be fat but I'm gonna be big someday.

So give me a star on my dressing room door,
My tapping technique will be hard to ignore,
Dance to the rhythm! Dance to the rhythm!

Sing, sing, sing like a womble,
Dance, dance, dance like a womble.
You're an entertainer from the head down,
To your wombling white tie and tails.

Woo! Woo! Woo!
The Hollywood train's on time,
When you hear that whistle blowing,
Womble up and see me sometime.
