  • Lyrics
  • Remember You're A Womble is the second album produced by the ad hoc group The Wombles. The title track was released as a single. After Mike Batt's success with "The Wombling Song", a cynic might think this was more of the same, but "Remember You're A Womble" is actually a fine song in its own right - bearing in mind that it was written primarily for children. Far more uptempo than the original; the album was recorded at Wessex Studios, produced by composer Batt, and released on the CBS label in July 1974. The single, which features some snazzy violin and a sax, runs to around 3 minutes 15 seconds, and was released in April 1974 backed by "Bungo's Birthday", Bungo being another Womble character.
  • "Remember You're A Womble" actually earned an appearance on the Easter 1974 edition of Top Of The Pops, which is not that surprising as by that time it had reached number 20 in the BBC singles chart. Most - but by no means all - of the songs on this programme were mimed, and so was this one; even Mike Batt can't play a guitar wearing Womble gloves! >>
