View Full Version : Can they fix this? A Bob the Builder based lament on uke

05-24-2010, 09:32 PM
Hello there

this was inspired by over-hearing someone in the supermarket talking about a couple called Wendy & Bob. That reminded me of the non-couple couple in Bob the Builder which I used to watch with my eldest son about 10 years ago. As we'd sit there watching this endlessly looped video I would start to wonder why Wendy & Bob weren't together - they were perfect for one another. So this is imagining them coming to terms with how they feel. There should be more cartoon based songs - Peter Perfect gets done for driving drunk, Charlie Brown and Lucy's messy divorce, Top Cat worries about his trip to the vets...


Thanks for looking

I really, really enjoyed this tune a lot. I thought Nick Lowe, Squeeze, Kinks, .... classic British pop music to my ears. Thanks!

Wow. Cletus you just named three of my musical heroes. I'm flattered, thank you.

Very nice! It was rather Squeeze-like.... also reminded me of someone else but I can't quite put my finger on it. Great job!

That was really cute. I can see the song applying to Handy Manny and Kelly too. (US based kids show)
So much sexual tension.* lol

*Yes, I obviously watch too much children's television. XD

Yeh I watched Handy Manny with my niece and thought there was something in the air there as well.

All these Squeeze references are spoiling me. Thanks Chris.
