Brown Sauce

I remember the cast of Multi-Coloured Swap Shop released a single in the late 70s. The Band was called Brown Sauce and the song was called 'I Wanna Be A Winner'. The lyrics went like this:

Don't wanna dance like Fred Astaire, Be like a Superman through the air; Don't wanna join Claire Francis in the riggings, Pot the black with Hurricane Higgins. Don't wanna ride like Willie Carson, Be a Bishop or an important Parson; Don't wanna hit Geoff Boycott for four, Knock Mohammed Ali on the floor.

I just wanna be a winner Just a little Oscar please, I just wanna be a winner or a box of CBEs, I just wanna be a winner I wouldn't mind if it was Nobel, I just wanna be a winner Even Eric would serve me well. See one, feel one, touch one, See one, feel one, touch one, See one, feel one, win an award.

Who'd want to rule like President Reagan, Or kick a ball like Kevin Keegan. Don't wanna sit Barbara Woodhouse does that. I'd like to see her try it with the Blue Peter cat. Penny Keith don't need me at the Manor, I've no desire to marry Diana; Don't even want to paint like Van Gogh, Go nationwide with Frank Bough.

    Great record! Reached no.15, late81/early 82. The contemporary references have somewhat dated it, though.

    This site is probably not the right place for the confession of sins, but I'm afraid I bought this! Well, I think we all have moments of insanity when it comes to purchasing music....

    Those lifeboat men who saved Noel Edmonds from drowning have an awful lot to answer for.
