Sooty joins the likes of the positively ghoulish Andrew Lloyd Webber, the perma-grinned Olivia Newton-John and the beautifully bummable Joe Dallesandro (who we’re desperado to see a current photo of. Anyone know of any?) in turning 60 this year.
So to celebrate Sooty’s pensionable age, we’ve found an informative slash fun sing-song about not playing with matches. The lyrics involve ‘Never ever ever play with matches’ and continue as such for 2 minutes and 45 seconds, but once you’ve got past that smug fucker Sue, you’re in for a mean sax solo from Sweep. Yay! *does Sweep squeak*
