Mother Goose – Baked Beans

YouTube can be a real treasure trove of long lost memories as with this song.

I hadn’t thought about this song for many years until I stumbled across the clip on YouTube. It was a huge hit in Australia in the 70s (oops, I almost gave away my age). It appealed me back then for a number of reasons – the wacky costumes, the catchy chorus, the hilarious clip and also because it was about baked beans, which I love (especially when I’m short of money). Baked beans on toast is still one of my favourite meals today.

The group is Mother Goose and the song is “Baked Beans”.

PS. In Australia’s cultural defence, Mother Goose came from New Zealand. 🙂

    Makes me think of Doctor Hook and smoking pot.
