GOODIES MUSIC REVIEW (BONUS) - THE GOODIES THEME

 

(from C&G #132  November 2006)

 

Our three Goodies music reviewers from over the past decade, Emperor Caligula (aka Brett Allender), Peaches Stiletto (aka Linda Kay) and Caroline Kooky (aka Alison Bean) are all currently aboard the trandem pedalling like mad trying to win the Tour de France and dodge the volley of breadsticks hurled at them by the disgruntled mob of Frenchmen waiting at the finish line who are expecting "Le Bon Bon – The Sweeties" to triumph instead.  After this they will either continue their leisurely ride on to Skegness or hot up their disused railway station for a tilt at the "Lemons Vings Quaters Hurs" race, so with a bit of luck we won't hear any more pitiful puns or ratty refrains from any of our distant DJs (well, not until next month anyway!)

 

Instead we're happy to bring you a bonus edition featuring just the lyrics of the two main versions of "THE GOODIES THEME":

(1) the version which was used at the start of the very first Goodies episode and appeared in various guises in the first four series of the show and on the album "The Goodies Sing Songs From The Goodies", and:

(2) The version used from Series 5 onwards (with some minor variations for different series) which also appears on the '70s albums "The New Goodies LP", "The Goodies Greatest" and "Best Of … The Goodies", and on the 1997 CD "Yum Yum – The Very Best Of The Goodies"

 

(1)  SERIES 1 TO 4

Sung by Bill, with contributions from Tim and Graeme

 

Goodies, Goodies

 

Take a little good advice, try a trip to paradise

It's not hard to find, you've got it on your mind

Can't pretend it wouldn't be nice

It's whatever turns you on, Goodies

 

A circus or a seaside pier, a sausage or a can of beer

A stripper or a clown, prices going down

You can make it happen here

Fun for all the family, Goodies

 

Goodies, goody goody yum yum

Goodies, goody goody yum yum

Goodies, goody goody yum yum

 

Goodies are coming for you and you and you and you

It's anything you want it to be, a record or an OBE

A four minute mile, a policeman with a smile

I know you won't believe what you see

 

 

(2)  SERIES 5 TO 9 AND ALBUMS

Sung by Bill, with contributions from Tim and Graeme

 

Goodies.  Goody goody yum yum

 

G … you need a helping hand

O … you know we'll understand

O … we're with you right to the end

Everyone needs a friend, Goody, Goody, Goody

 

D … we'll show you definitely

Y … you should employ us three

We … can take on any old line

Anything anytime, hi hi hi

 

Goodies … goody goody yum yum

Goodies … we're coming for you

Goodies … goody goody yum yum

Here we come into town, getting up, falling down

 

Hey … why don't you give us a shout

May - be we can work it out

Aaah … come on and don't be shy

We'll lead you to a better life, Goody Goody Goody

 

Do … you want to sing our song?

You … can learn right along

We … can show you all what to do

So you can be a Goody too, Ooo, Ooo, Ooo

 

Goodies … goody goody yum yum

Goodies … we're coming for you

Goodies … goody goody yum yum

Up down, in out, right in, fall about

 

Goodies … goody goody yum yum … Goodies

Goodies … goody goody yum yum … Goodies

Goodies … goody goody yum yum … Goodies

Goodies … goody goody yum yum … Goodies

The Goodies … goody goody yum yum … Goodies

Goodies … goody goody yum yum … Goodies

 

RATING

 

No need to rate … they're great, mate!

 

 




Comments
Thanks for these lyrics, they served as a reminder when I was recording a cover version (might post a link here if it turns out any good).

However, having had the "Goodies - Almost Live" album when I was just 4 years old, I remember, when prompted, the lyrics and there are a few things I can correct:

The latter half of the second verse is actually, with obvious reference to the trandem:

Do ... you want to sing our song
You ... can learn to RIDE ALONG
.
.
.
Up down, in out, RIDING ALL ABOUT


hope that helps
