# Time to call on Granny Murray
# She'd love to say hello to you... #
Hello, honey pie!
Come away in, and see who's at home today.
# Granny Murray's house has two at home to play
# Granny Murray's house is home, too! #
Who's here today?
Well, we've got Eva and we've got Ashley.
Don't just sit there like old mushrooms, you two!
Come on, let's get busy. Today, we are doing flower arranging!
Do you like the lovely colours? Beautiful, aren't they?
Oh, you're doing awful well, girls!
Well, we've got Eva and we've got Ashley,
but someone's missing from home today.
Oh! Not any more! Who's coming home to Granny Murray?
Yes, it's Tina, with Lisa.
Tina...and Lisa, come away through.
Here they come!
Oh, hey, those flowers are a bit special.
All nicely arranged as well.
Oh, we've been busy this morning right enough.
But now Lisa's here, how about we dress Claude up? Good idea?
And we can PLANT ourselves over there!
Och! All these flowers!
There's nothing more cheerful than a whole lot of flowers.
Oh, I like roses. They're so romantic.
Raymond bought me a dozen red roses once.
And tulips, and chrysanthemums, oh, I love them all!
-I love the smell of lilies!
-Oh! Lilies, of course.
Raymond has lilies in his dressing room when we do our plays.
I think it's to hide the smell of his socks!
You're right there, Tina.
Flowers can make life sweet.
Ooh! Talking of sweetness...
look at Claude!
Oh! Oh, what a fine floral display, Claude.
Well done, petals.
Oh, is that for me?
Oh, it's a sweet and fair as you, Lisa, my lovely girl.
Well, I'd best be off to work.
-Come on then.
Now remember, flowers make life sweet.
-Thanks, Granny Murray. See you.
-Bye-bye, we'll be thinking of you.
Will you keep a wee eye on Tina
and make sure she goes the right way to work?
I'd better hurry. Could you tell me the fastest way to get to work?
# I'm in, in, in, in, in a hurry
# I need, need, need, need to speed to work
# I'll take a, take a ticket on the subway
# I'll be, be, be, be, be, be there quite quick.
# Hurry, hurry, hurry through the tunnel
# Clatter, clatter, clatter under ground
# Whining, whining, whining drives the speed up
# Squeaking, squeaking, squeaking slows us down
# Clatter, clatter, clatter
# Squeaking, squeaking, squeaking to our stop!
# I'm in, in, in, I'm in a hurry
# I need to speed to work. #
Phew! What now? Of course!
I have to get ready for work.
Oh, morning, Dr Juno.
What are you doing here?
I've just taken my bike for an overhaul and I need a lift.
-Oh, my goodness!
I'll have to clear this lot up before we go anywhere.
What you need is a little waste paper basket,
so people won't leave their litter lying around.
-I'll just jump on the tram.
-Are you sure?
-Yes. See you later.
-Have a good day. Bye!
Dustpan and brush, dustpan and brush...
Ooh! Dustpan and brush.
# I'm picking up inside my pretty, pink taxi
# Before I take a ride in my pink taxi
# Making it spic-and-span All clean and flush
# Pretty pink taxi, here's my dustpan and brush. #
I wonder how my little flower's doing.
# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal by the sea
# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal that's for me. #
Oh, they're lovely, aren't they?
Look at all the different colours, girls,
and the different flowers. Beautiful!
There's roses up the back, Lisa.
-Your mum likes roses, doesn't she?
What are you doing now, Mummy?
There! All finished.
Yep, looking good.
Now I need to find something I can use as a waste paper basket
for the back of my taxi.
Oh! This could make a really fun waste paper basket for the taxi.
There we are. Now my new waste paper basket can pick up litter
while I pick up passengers,
because it's time for me to get down to some hard work!
# City roads are waiting
# The traffic lights are changing
# Police cars are cruising
# The trucks keep a-trucking
# And the city roads are waiting for me to take a drive
# In my pretty pink taxi... #
# People wave me down in my pretty pink taxi
# Get into the back and just relax for the ride
# Pretty pink taxi She's going for a dri-ive
# Look in the mirror Shift that gear
# Pull out to the busy lane My pink taxi takes the strain
# The radio calls up a taxi fare Who am I gonna meet?
# Looking for a job in my pretty pink taxi, o-oh!
# Cruising in the city In my pretty pink taxi, yeah
# Drive, drive, drive
# In my pretty pink taxi
# Ride, ride, ride
# Where you wanna go... #
# Cos I need to take a drive In my pretty pink taxi
# People wave me down And relax for the ride. #
-Hello, my love!
-Raymond, what have you been eating?
I got some very delicious ripe cheese from my favourite shop.
Oh, but I am glad you stopped by because I want to show you something.
-You know that old top hat we used as Dr Watson in our Sherlock Holmes play?
Isn't that a bit battered?
Yes, but I found another use for it!
Ta-da! It's a new waste paper basket for the back of my taxi!
Oh, how clever you are.
Oh, well, I'll set an example and put my litter in your bin.
Well, thank you for dropping by.
Have a good rest of day.
Well, it's time for me to have my lunch.
I wonder how my little rosebud Lisa's getting on.
# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal, that's for me. #
Look at this, girls. What do you think that could be?
-BOTH: A dolphin.
-And what about this bit here?
-A ring, or a hoop
for the dolphin to jump through. What's this here?
Can you smell the sweet peas?
Where are you, Mummy?
-Oh, hi, Tina.
Can I get a lift to Kai's nursery? I'm late.
-First, I need to go to the library for Nola next door,
to get something in large print.
Then the bank, then the market for some veg,
cos I've got to make a ratatouille.
-Um, you're all right, Tina. Don't worry about the lift.
I'll jog to Kai's nursery and, um, all the other places.
It'll be quicker, and I need the exercise.
Oh, my taxi stinks!
I've been working hard all day,
and everyone's been very happy in my taxi,
and now all of a sudden, there's this terrible pong.
What's gone wrong?
Where did the time go?
At eight o'clock, I dropped off Lisa at Granny Murray's.
They made everything look pretty with flowers.
Lisa gave me a sweet-smelling rose to take to work.
At nine o'clock, I arrived at the taxi garage.
Dr Juno stopped by.
She wanted a lift to the hospital, but my taxi was full of rubbish.
Dr Juno decided to take the tram to work, while I cleaned the taxi.
At ten o'clock, I dug out Raymond's tatty old top hat.
I popped a plastic bag inside,
and it made a brilliant waste paper bin for the back of the cab.
At two o'clock, Raymond popped in during his lunch break.
He smelt a bit cheesy.
He told me he'd visited his favourite cheese shop,
and he threw the leftovers in my new waste paper bin.
At three o'clock, Bobby dropped by. She was very busy,
and wanted a lift to the nursery and the library, and all over the place!
She jumped into the back of my cab and leapt straight back out
because there was such an awful smell.
Now remember, flowers make life sweet.
"Flowers make life sweet."
Of course! Flowers will make my taxi smell sweet, too!
But not before I've got rid of the remains of Raymond's stinky cheese
from my waste paper bin.
It's a race against time.
# I've got to do it I've got to do it
# I've got to beat the clock before the chime
# I've got to sort it I've got to sort it
# I've got to do the job on time
# Like a busy bee I'm going to beat that bong
# I'm going to finish this job before I finish this song
# Do we think she's going to do it
# Do the job that needs to be done?
# Will she know how to fix it? Will she finish what she has begun?
# Yes, we're sure as we are friends She'll get there in the end
# She knows what she should do To work it through
-# I'm going to do it
-She's going to do it
# I'm going to beat the clock before the chime
-# I'm going to sort it
-She's going to sort it
# I'm going to do the job on time
# Like a busy bee I'm going to beat that bong
# I'm going to finish the job Before I finish this song! #
Oh, how are you doing?
Oh, I am totally whacked!
I went to the library, and I wanted to pick up a nice book for Nola,
but then I went to the bank, and I left the book there.
I've still got to go to the market, and the dry-cleaner's,
before I can even pick up Kai from nursery!
Why don't you jump into my taxi?
Um, no, you're all right, Tina.
I'll just...have a break and get my breath back.
Bobby, I know why you didn't want to before.
I've sorted it!
I think you shall be surprised at how sweetly my taxi doth take the strain.
Oh, wow! Those flowers make it smell really sweet.
And they look pretty, too.
I'll tell you what, Tina. The only problem will be getting me out!
I wonder how my little sweetie's getting on.
Come on, girls, let's see you dancing!
# La, la, la, la, la! #
Ooh! I've got a good idea, girls. Who wants a shot of this?
-OK, Lisa, your turn first.
There you go! Twirl round!
She looks like a delicate wee flower,
-waiting for a busy bee.
-'I want to be with you, Mummy.'
Come away in!
Your mum's here, Lisa!
Oh, hello, Lisa!
I hear that you and Granny Murray have had a fab day.
-We certainly have!
A big squeezy cuddle!
Oh, and thanks from me, too, Granny Murray.
I remembered what you said. "Flowers make life sweet."
-It saved the day.
-I'm pleased to hear it!
-Come on, you two, let's get you home.
-Come on, Lisa.
Bye-bye, my darlings. Looking forward to next time.
-Ah, me too!
-Come on, Lisa. Shall we talk about our time away?
-No! Our drive time away.
And I suppose you'll want ME to tell YOU all about my time, too!
Well, there was...
# Hugging, squishing, walking, pushing
# Dancing, dusting, sharing, choosing
# Taking, cooking, drying, cleaning
# Saving, framing, laughing, joking
# Using things and rushing round
# Picking up and putting down!
# Then there was...
# Playing, running, creeping, jumping
# Chasing, painting, laughing, baking
# Bathing, dressing, singing, swinging,
# Walking, fighting, hunting, hiding
# Jumping up and turning round
# Dressing up and sitting down! # Ha!
But what was really special about today?
Well, Claude was dressed in all sorts of flowery clothes
because we were collecting flowers and arranging them in vases.
Tina dropped off Lisa on her way to work.
After Tina had set off, we painted some flowers.
Later on, we went to the park and looked at the flower beds.
We saw lots of carefully planted flowers
that made patterns and shapes.
I liked the yellow flowers. Lisa liked the pink flowers.
They reminded her of her mum's pretty pink taxi.
We did a flower dance. Watching them twirling this way and that
like little flower fairies made me feel quite dizzy.
Meanwhile, Tina was having a busy day, too.
She remembered that flowers make life sweet,
and she used some flowers to cheer up the back of her taxi,
making it a pretty and sweet-smelling place to be.
Mmm, sweet! I hope you enjoyed yourself.
Bye-bye, honey pie!
