Subject: Bagpuss fix it song and Wicker Man song
From: katlaughing
Date: 31 May 06 - 11:11 PM

Having learned about Bagpuss, the children's tv show in the UK, through how Mudcat's Bagpuss chose his name, I now have a Bagpuss, the toy cat and TWO of the singing mice. They are SO adorable and fun.

Anyway, there are a couple of places where I can't quite get the lyrics, just a word or two, so I went looking on google and found this bit about the "Fix It Song" which the mice sing:

That's the same tune sung at the end of cult horror "The Wicker Man" while Ewar Woowar is meeting his maker.

Anyone know if this is true? Also, if anyone could post the correct lyrics, that'd be great. It's just a bit muffled and I'd like my grandson to learn the it the right way.:-)

Here's what I think they are:

We will find it
We will bind it
We will stick it with glue, glue, glue.

We will stickered(?)it,
Every little bit of it,
We will stick(?) it like new, new, new.

Thanks!

This version also:

Only two variations I could locate.

I have a Bagpuss singing mouse.....it used to sit on my monitor at work but everytime someone would walk passed they would set it off, so I had to bring it home and it sits with Micca's Eeyore on the computer desk!

Thanks, folks! Micca, I'd never realised they were that close in tune. I'll have to try that out on the piano, but just sight-reading in my mind, it looks almost the same.

Khat, how long has yours lasted, singing-wise? We don't play them very often as I want them to last. Seems kind of mean they don't make them with replaceable batteries!

Thanks, again,

kat

I seem to remember Bagpuss (the Mudcat one) as a female personage but stand to be corrected.

Whoops, my apologies to Mudcat's Bagpuss! Thansk for the correction.

Khatt, thanks! There's hope of more, then!

I am going to order the DVD of the series so my grandson can watch it.

The Bagpuss show at Chippenham (for kids of all ages) was Sandra Kerr with Nancy, James Fagan and John Faulkner. I got to introduce it because Bob Berry liked the idea of Kitty and Bagpuss at the same event.....

"Said on my Chippenham prog that Bagpuss was Sandra Kerr"

In the original TV programme, Sandra was Madeleine the Rag Doll and some of the mice. John Faulkner was Gabriel the Toad.

Who did Professor Yaffle's voice?

Oral version 'We will mend it, we will fix it......

Hoorah for the Marvellous Magical Mechanical Mouse Organ and the Chocolate Biscuit Machine!

My wife adds, again from oral tradition,
'We will mend it, we will extend it, we will make it like new, new, new.
We will rub it up, we will scrub it up.........'

I want to see Newcastle University run a degree course in 'Bagpuss'.

Yawwwwwwn!

Nyarf Nyarf Nyarf, it sounds like Oliver Postgate himself, Steve, but I haven't been able to confirm it.

Oh, and bear in mind, you can't make chocolate biscuits from breadcrumbs and butter beans!

I prefer the words in the other round on the CD - something like,

We will gloss it, we will floss it, we will polish it pink,pink,pink

Anyone got a date for the Bagpuss show at Chippenham this year ?

I don't know if the Bagpuss show is at Chippenham this year, but it is at Sidmouth FolkWeek on Sunday 1 August at the Manor Pavilion. There are two shows, afternoon and early evening.

I meant Sidmouth. I'm tired, I read an earlier post and Chippenham was mentioned and that slipped into my posting instead. So question is answered.

Thanks.

On the subject of "The Wicker Man" have a look at this. I'm not clever enough for blue clicky things, you'll have to copy and paste.

We had 4 mice - Two did the 'We will find it' song and two did another that my addled grey cells cannot recall. It was good fun to set them off in time so they did a round. Drove my son (fully grown) mad when I did it for the hundreth time. Nice to see I can get my own back occasionaly:-)

Hi Kat
I have just replaced the batteries in our little mouse and she is happily singing once more as clear as ever.

I had to carefully unpick the stitches on her back.
Take out the voice box also unpicking the stitches
in the little bag that encased the box.

Using a small cross-head screwdriver I opened it up
and removed the 3 small button batteries
having identified the type/no we then re-ordered from "7 day shop"
at less than £1(BP)per pack of 10.

Now she is singing again - until we get tired and shut her up!
but I shot a video of her singing in case the voice box ever breaks.
It lasted about 2 years last time with children in the house that's not bad and now we have 7 more batteries enough for 2 more replacements! regards
Jen (Hertford England)

As an aside did Ian Cutler make a cameo appearance in the original film?
