How's that for catchy, especially for a song that only has 5 different words in it! Perhaps it could be a Weekend Cooking theme song, although we might have to work out what the growl thing could mean in that context!
What I didn't know was that The Wiggles had done a version of this song with Mental as Anything, which led me to thinking about kid's songs about food. Now, I am only concentrating on The Wiggles songs about food because otherwise I would never actually finish writing this post.
Let's start with some old style Wiggles. When my son was small and we were in the right demographic for The Wiggles, there were a couple of food type songs, most notably Hot Potato and Fruit Salad Yummy Yummy.
When I was looking at Youtube, I was surprised to find that someone has uploaded a 10 hour long video that is just Fruit Salad over and over and over again! Don't worry, that isn't the one that I included in the post.
You have to ask WHY, and then how long would you last. For the record I lasted for two and half times of the song. Not long but still. In my defence I then want on to listen to multiple other Wiggles songs after that!
After clicking on this and that, I eventually found that there was a Wiggles album called Let's Eat which features all sorts of songs, including songs about food, digestion and hygiene amongst other things. What we did get is a glimpse into The Wiggles weekly menu. Apparently, Monday is Muffin day, Tuesday is Taco Day, Wednesday is Watermelon day, Thursday is Bratwurst Day, Friday is Fish Fry Day, Saturday is Sultana Day and Sunday is Sandwich Day. Not quite sure where cold spaghetti, hot potato, mashed banana and fruit salad fit in that menu but maybe their tastes are evolving.
Do you have a favourite kid's song about food?
