‘The Covid Wombles’

12th September 2020

This is to be sung to the tune of Mike Batt’s famous Wombling Song. The original is great fun, and can be found on youtube.

And, oh joy, oh bliss! The authentic episodes from the T.V. read by the legend Bernard Cribbins.

But as it is Covid season, and the hunting is good, I thought it worth a shot at an alternative version.

If anybody wants to do a karaoke version and post it they are most welcome. Just let me know so i can enjoy it.

 

Underground, overground, with tramlink three

The marshals of Wimbledon Covid are we

Being a nuisance to people we find

Breaking the rules others think are unkind

 

Uncle’s hilarious, he can remember the days

When he wasn’t behind a mask

Like the rest of the world

Reading the papers, all about Labour and Tory

 

Marshals are mobilised, think it’s a scream

Marshals are snidey and Marshals are mean

Underground, overground, with tramlink three

The marshals of Wimbledon Covid are we

 

People will notice us, they’ll always see

Getting up noses a Marshal will be

Marshals by night and we’re marshals by day

Looking for people to bundle away

 

We’re so incredulous, utterly dubious

Messing the best of everything

Even bollards and bins

Replacing P.C.s, pretend we’re doing something new

That’s what we’ll do

 

Underground, overground, with tramlink three

The marshals of Wimbledon Covid are we

Being a nuisance to people we find

Breaking the rules others think are unkind
