    Everyone else thinks I’m making this up, but I remember a ‘comedy’ song that includes the line (spoken in a funny voice) ‘and a sausage sandwich!’.  I’m sure there were also references to a bacon butty.  It was probably from an advert, maybe something to do with three little pigs, and I thought it involved Vic Reeves, although my resident Vic Reeves expert refutes this.

    Help.

    <br>I can’t help you ‘mad Sal’ but does anyone know the song played on the Sky advert for ‘Star Wars – All 6 Episodes’?

    It has a female vocalist who sounds a bit like Jem but I’m sure that I heard it was Zero 7 so can anyone enlighten me?

    Destiny – Zero 7 (although they may have run another ad with the Prodigy for the same feature)

    I remember that song .. it was all about food, would have been number one for months in the 70’s.

    Could it be this, "Toast" by Streetband (Paul Young)?

    [Spoken]<br>Morning all. I’d like to tell you about when I was a young boy. I must have been three or four months old at the time. I didn’t really know what I wanted, and if I did, I wouldn’t have been able to tell anybody, ‘cos all I could do was gurgle. So I sat there in me highchair, thinking one day, looking at me tray and thinking what I’d give for a meal on there. So I started looking round to see what I could have. I was rubbing me eggy soldier in me head, trying to think, and then I looked in the corner and there’s a little breadbin with its mouth open, just staring at me, like. And then I looked in and I saw bread.

    I thought, oh yeah, I’ll have toast,<br>A little piece of toast.

    Well, then I started getting older,<br>I hated this, I hated that,<br>Expensive state was ludicrous<br>And cafés couldn’t cater for the finer things in life:<br>The upper crust was not for me,<br>I could tell that.<br>So I’d go back home,<br>Switch the kitchen light on,<br>Put the grill on,<br>Slip a slice under

    And have toast,<br>A little piece of toast.

    ‘Cos there’s so much to choose from.<br>There’s brown bread, white bread,<br>All sorts of wholemeal bread;<br>It comes in funny packages<br>With writing on the side,<br>But it doesn’t matter which one you have<br>’Cos when you cut the crusts off,<br>Have it with marmalade<br>Or butter, cheese, tomatoes, beans,<br>Banana<br>Or chocolate if you’re strange,<br>It doesn’t really matter.

    Oh no, it all goes with toast,<br>Just toast.

    I’m gonna think about it some…

    That’s toast, mmm yeah,<br>Just toast,<br>That’s toast,<br>Just toast.

    Well I go down the supermarket<br>With me basket in me hand,<br>I’m walking from one counter to another<br>Trying to find the bread stall,<br>But I can’t find it anywhere<br>And then I bump into a mother<br>With a baby in a basket<br>And she says

    ‘Oh look, you’ve started him off again,<br>I come down here for a little bit of peace and quiet<br>To get some bread to go home to make toast,<br>Just toast,<br>I like toast'<br>Yeah, but I don’t half like toast.

    OK, scrape that toast, boys.

    That’s toast,<br>Yeah, just toast.

    [Spoken]<br>I can’t think about it any more. I’ve got to go and have some, it’s no good. Here listen, I’m getting a bit browned off standing here. Me too. Shall we go and have some toast? Good idea. Why not? OK. I’ve got the grill on. Got any brown bread? Yeah! Have you got wholemeal bread? Wheatmeal bread? All sorts of toast. Let’s go… (They proceed to make toast, accompanied by various kitchen noises.)

    Very well done Graysonscolumn! Been a long time since I’ve heard that song…..yes I could hear it while I was reading!!! Not many people would know all the words like that, except dodgy peeps like me…….and you! I know your going to ruin it and say you got the lyrics with the single!! Still, it was very :cool:

    My pleasure, CC3! I only knew a few of the lyrics, but fortunately enough to recognise the song. A few quick searches of lyric websites did the rest. I love a pop challenge, me.

    Had it not been that song, the only other one I could think it might have been was And That’s Before Me Tea!, a genuine 1990s top 75 hit by Steve Wright In The Afternoon character Mr Food.
