Lyrics for 'Big Cook, Little Cook' and assorted trivial questions about 'Me Too'.

My DS likes me to sing the cleaning up song from Big Cook, Little Cook blush

I keep forgetting to pay attention and never seem to have a pen to hand - although, not being able to do shorthand, I'm not sure that would be much of an advantage.

Something about 'Pots and Pans will start to smell if we don't wash them really well..... bla bla bla, ........ the cleanest cafe in town.'

If anyone else has a better memory than me and happens to know (long shot I know) then would be grateful to hear from you.

In 'Me Too', what excatly is Granny Murray? A childminder? Why do the children sometimes sleep there? Is the concept of 'overnight childminding' realistic? (showing my ignorance here.)

Final useless question - where it is filmed - Edinburgh? To me (sat at home) it looks quite nice (yes I need to get out more!)

Hahaha I always mean to put the subtitles on at the beginning on Metoo! What is Granny Murray singing?

boogeek Wed 14-Jan-09 12:32:06

wash wipe scrub and clean make the kitchen sparkle and gleam
my name's Ben and my name's Small we've got the cleanest kitchen of all,
Tidy all the bits and bobs, things that help us do our jobs
Ingredients we'll put away ready for use another day
Pots and pans will start to smell if we don't wash them really well
now it's clear let's all smile we'll be finished in a little while
All around, up and down,
we've got the cleanest cafe in town!

Or something like that blush

Jelly boat and pirates, gold princess pea pies, carrot cakes and fruit smiles and envelope surprise, we love our cafe and we loveto cook, we have a fantastic receipe book. He is big cook, and he is small, friends in our cafe we love one and all.

Thats all I can remember sorry.

Granny Murray is just very very disturbing and it is best you don't think about it too hard.
(But: she's a childminder but a bloody annoying one - if I had one who gave me a bit of jolly advice every morning I wouldn't tolerate it for long! I have No Idea about the overnight minding. It is carefully filmed to incorporate lots of cities - presumably so everybody recognises a bit. There's a london gherkin, a newcastle bridge, bits of glasgow and edinburgh...)

geordieminx Wed 14-Jan-09 12:34:35

Me too is filmed in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle and London... it flips from one to the other though, so they can be driving along a street in Glasgow and then pass the Gerkin in London.... Bizarre!!

Me Too is filmed in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Newcastle.

nickytwotimes Wed 14-Jan-09 12:35:36

Forgot London.

MrsSeanBean Wed 14-Jan-09 12:36:54

Reality and BooGeek - very impressed... Thank you! grin

BTW geordieminx, thanks for clearing up the princess pea pie thing, I could never catch what it was - Old? Cold? Was I imagining whoel word? Nothing sounded right but Gold makes perfect sense!

MrsSeanBean Wed 14-Jan-09 12:39:48

We watched the princess pea pie episode and I thought it looked rather tasty blush - what is wrong with me??!

nickytwotimes Wed 14-Jan-09 12:41:11

Granny Murray is also Isa in Still Game. Very disconcerting - I keep expecting her to come on and start swearing like a longshoreman.

Racers Wed 14-Jan-09 12:43:05

"friends in our cafe, we cook for them all" I think blush

DD LOVES dancing to them and tries to keep up with all the actions.

The recipies look crap though! (the end product and Ben's rubbish mixing - the recipies might be sound I guess, haven't tried them)


whinegums Wed 14-Jan-09 12:45:44

I hate Me Too! I live in Glasgow, but I'm from Newcastle, and it annoys the hell out of me when they skip between them (and other places) and go 'one way' but end up somewhere completely different to where they would be in RL!!!! Granny Murray is v disturbing, as are all the other characters, especially the two that are supposed to be married to each other.

geordieminx Wed 14-Jan-09 12:46:36

WHINEGUMS - I feel your pain grin

Eddas Wed 14-Jan-09 13:08:24

who's married in me too? must've missed that one

I am so glad others know all the words to these programmes tooblush in my defence I do have 2 dc and have ben watching them for a few years nowgrin

whinegums Wed 14-Jan-09 14:00:28

Hiya geordieminx, our paths haven't crossed for a while - how are you?

Eddas - aren't Lisa's mum - the taxi driver who likes pink - and the guy who works on the trains, but frankly appears to be up the other side of the ballroom - married? Have I misunderstood?!!!

geordieminx Wed 14-Jan-09 14:08:58

Bit under the weather just now whine - had wisdom teeth out on ondy under GA so bit swollen and sore.

We must have a coffee sometime so we can talk about whippets and pidgeons and stotties! grin How old are your d's again?

PortBlacksandResident Wed 14-Jan-09 14:12:47

The blind chap (sorry it's been a while since i watched it - are you envy LOL?) is married to one of the river boat band too iirc.

PinkPussyCat Wed 14-Jan-09 14:12:59

Where is the outdoor market filmed? I reckon it's Edinburgh, dh thinks Jesmond in Newcastle.

So glad there are others out there with similar questionsblush

Bella73 Wed 14-Jan-09 14:20:38

Yes Tina (taxi driver) and Raymond (train buffet car guy) are married. But yes, since they're both into musical theatre and Raymond's entire demeanour, some people are suspicious..

And Rudi (the blind market trader guy) is married to one of the Ferry Boat Band girls (not Chuck, the other one whose name currently escapes me).

My DP is adamant that Dr Juno and Chuck (from the Ferry Boat Band) are a couple too. His evidence is that there is a framed picture of Chuck in Dr Juno's office and one episode has Chuck wanting to take Dr Juno out for lunch?

Seriously.... I think we need to get out more...

Bella73 Wed 14-Jan-09 14:21:59

Tina & Raymond are Lisa's parents.

Rudi and erm, whatever her name is (it's a man's name I think for some reason?) are parents of a little blond boy whose name also escapes me.... gah....

MrsSeanBean Wed 14-Jan-09 14:26:19

Are Rudi and Bobbi (lady who cleans buses) married?

SoMuchToBits Wed 14-Jan-09 14:29:44

After !Friends in our cafe, we cook for them all" the words are:-

When your tummy
Gets all rumbly
You're ready for a treat
You can make something
Delicious to eat

Or something like that!

Bella73 Wed 14-Jan-09 14:29:45

No, Bobbi is a single parent (we guess) as she works nights and drops Kai off with Granny Murray. I do worry about when Bobbi sleeps as she works nights, then picks Kai up and presumably has to look after him all day... blush I really do need to get out more but Me Too is our favourite show.
