0:00:120:00:15

# Take a peek for an inside view

0:00:150:00:17

# All these people busy working

0:00:170:00:20

# I want to see what they all do

0:00:200:00:22

# Come on, let's weave around the market

0:00:220:00:25

# Do you hear the hullabaloo?

0:00:250:00:27

# Everybody's busy selling

0:00:270:00:30

# Take a taxi ride to the river

0:00:380:00:41

# I wanna drive down the avenue

# Hey, look at those buses gleaming

0:00:440:00:47

# They look so clean and spanking new

-Me too

0:01:030:01:07

0:01:070:01:09

# Riverseafingal, by the sea. #

0:01:090:01:11

Eight o'clock.

0:01:110:01:13

# Come on and get on down to the city

0:01:150:01:18

-# Where the ferryboat sails are blue

-Sails are blue

0:01:180:01:22

# Time to call on Granny Murray

0:01:220:01:24

# She'd love to say hello to you... #

0:01:240:01:29

Hello, honey pie.

0:01:330:01:35

Come away in and see who's at home today.

0:01:350:01:38

# Granny Murray's house has two at home to play

0:01:380:01:41

# Granny Murray's house is home to... #

0:01:410:01:43

Who's here today?

0:01:430:01:46

Well, we've got Emma and we've got Beth.

0:01:460:01:49

Don't just sit there, my wee cherry pies.

0:01:490:01:52

Come on! Get moving!

0:01:520:01:54

What's on Granny Murray's shelves today?

0:01:540:01:57

We're going to build a racetrack.

0:01:570:01:59

Put them like that. That's good.

0:01:590:02:02

Are we ready?

0:02:020:02:04

Vroom, vroom.

0:02:040:02:06

See how fast we can go.

0:02:060:02:08

Oh no! You're crashing me.

0:02:080:02:11

Oh, no!

0:02:110:02:13

There's a triangle.

0:02:130:02:16

Well, we've got Emma and Beth. Someone's missing from home today.

0:02:160:02:21

Oh! Not any more.

0:02:230:02:24

Who's coming home to Granny Murray?

0:02:240:02:27

Oh, yes! It's Lisa with Tina. Hello there.

0:02:270:02:32

Tina!

0:02:340:02:36

And Lisa!

0:02:360:02:38

What's this, Lisa?

0:02:420:02:44

-It looks like rally car driving.

-It is. We've been having a great time.

0:02:440:02:50

Now we'll do something new.

0:02:500:02:51

How about dressing Claude up as a rally driver?

0:02:510:02:54

And we can park our cars over there.

0:02:540:02:58

Beep! Beep! Brrrm...

0:02:580:03:00

Vroom, vroom, vroom...

0:03:000:03:04

-Oh!

-THEY LAUGH

0:03:040:03:07

-Oh! I've got Lisa's cycle helmet here.

-Oh, yes.

0:03:070:03:11

You did say you were taking her cycling.

0:03:110:03:13

That's right. Dr Juno's coming round and we're going on a cycle.

0:03:130:03:18

-You won't be taking Lisa out on the road, will you?

-No, no!

0:03:180:03:22

She'll be safe. We'll keep to the cycle lanes.

0:03:220:03:25

-I always keep to the lanes provided.

-Phew!

0:03:250:03:28

Well, I'd best be off.

0:03:280:03:31

Don't forget that Raymond's going to Lisa's nursery

0:03:310:03:35

to perform as Mr Cushion.

0:03:350:03:38

Oh! I love Mr Cushion.

0:03:380:03:40

He bounces up and down like this.

0:03:400:03:43

I can't wait. Three o'clock, straight after our cycle.

0:03:430:03:47

Will you look at Claude?

0:03:470:03:49

Rev it up, Claude.

0:03:490:03:50

I think you could win a rally dressed like that.

0:03:500:03:54

-Well done, cherubs.

-Here you are, Mummy.

-Is that for me?

0:03:540:03:58

It's a hankie. Why is there a knot in it?

0:03:580:04:02

-To remind you.

-To remind me... I won't forget you, will I?

0:04:020:04:06

Or any of you. This will also remind me to pick your daddy up

0:04:060:04:11

to take him to your nursery to do his show.

0:04:110:04:14

You have fun with Granny Murray.

0:04:140:04:16

-Come on, Tina.

-Bye-bye.

0:04:160:04:19

Now remember, always keep to the lanes provided.

0:04:230:04:28

-Thank you, Granny Murray. I'll see you later.

-Bye-bye.

0:04:280:04:31

-We'll be thinking of you.

-Me too.

0:04:310:04:33

Will you keep a wee eye on Tina and make sure she goes the right way?

0:04:330:04:39

# I'm on my way to work today

0:04:410:04:45

# Walking my shoes through the city views

0:04:450:04:50

# Stepping along I'm swinging my arms

0:04:500:04:54

# Singing my way through the city's charms

0:04:540:04:58

# Getting there is just so fine

0:04:580:05:02

# I so enjoy my walking time

0:05:020:05:06

# I always know the way I go... #

0:05:060:05:10

But can you show me the way I go?

0:05:100:05:14

OK, which way?

0:05:140:05:17

# Do I go that way or do I go this?

0:05:170:05:21

# Which way's a hit and which way's a miss? #

0:05:210:05:25

-Left!

-OK.

0:05:250:05:27

Left, to the garage.

0:05:270:05:28

# I'm on my way to work today

0:05:280:05:33

# Looking this way and that way... #

0:05:330:05:37

Hello, builders.

0:05:370:05:39

Hello, hat.

0:05:390:05:41

Hello, flower.

0:05:410:05:43

Hello, cat.

0:05:430:05:45

Hello, green man.

0:05:450:05:47

Hello, flats.

0:05:470:05:49

# She's on her way to work today

0:05:490:05:53

# Looking this way and that a way

0:05:530:05:57

# Do I go up now or do I go down?

0:05:570:06:01

# Which way's a smile, which way's a frown? #

0:06:010:06:06

-Down!

-OK, down.

0:06:060:06:08

# You showed me the way to go

0:06:080:06:12

# Thank you You showed me the way I know. #

0:06:120:06:17

Thanks for helping me get to work.

0:06:170:06:20

OK. Right now, it's time to get changed for work.

0:06:200:06:24

WHISTLE BEEPS

0:06:260:06:28

All dressed and ready to go.

0:06:300:06:32

OK, I have got a lot to do today.

0:06:400:06:44

I mustn't forget about taking Raymond to the nursery later.

0:06:440:06:48

It's good that I've got this.

0:06:480:06:51

This is also helping to remind me to do the weekly checks on the taxi.

0:06:510:06:55

-Tina - taxi driver...

-Hello, Mickey John.

0:06:550:07:00

-Hi, Tina.

-What are you doing here?

0:07:000:07:02

Well, I mean, shouldn't you be at school?

0:07:020:07:05

The head teacher gave me some time off, so I thought I'd research

0:07:050:07:09

what people do in their jobs.

0:07:090:07:11

-Yours is easy. You just drive round in a taxi.

-Yes, but...

0:07:110:07:15

-There's more to every job than meets the eye.

-Oh?

-Yes.

0:07:150:07:19

I don't just drive. Oh, no.

0:07:190:07:21

-I have to clean the taxi and maintain it as well.

-Maintain.

0:07:210:07:25

You're in luck cos today is the day I do my weekly checks.

0:07:250:07:29

Checks. Tina?

0:07:290:07:33

-Oh!

-I have to make sure everything is in good working order.

0:07:330:07:37

First - the tyre pressure.

0:07:370:07:40

That's OK.

0:07:410:07:43

-What else do you have to check?

-The oil levels,

0:07:430:07:47

the water levels and the screen wash.

0:07:470:07:50

-This is very interesting. Is that the right level?

-Perfect.

0:07:500:07:54

I can see that all these checks are really important.

0:07:540:07:58

Yes, but the most important thing...

0:07:580:08:01

is once the checks are done that I get everyone

0:08:010:08:04

to where they're meant to get to at the correct time.

0:08:040:08:08

Correct time.

0:08:080:08:10

Thank you for giving me this insight into your work, Tina.

0:08:100:08:14

-I better be off.

-Bye, Mickey John.

0:08:140:08:18

I wonder how my little girl is getting on.

0:08:180:08:22

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal by the sea

0:08:220:08:27

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal, that's for me. #

0:08:270:08:34

Before we go on a bike ride, it's really important to check

0:08:340:08:38

that everything's working properly.

0:08:380:08:40

We're gonna check the front brakes and then the back brakes.

0:08:400:08:45

Good. And then you're gonna check your tyres are pumped up.

0:08:450:08:49

Squeeze, squeeze.

0:08:490:08:51

Finally, check that your handlebars are straight.

0:08:510:08:55

Once that's done, we can get a move on.

0:08:550:08:58

Lisa, do you think Mum checks her taxi as well as we check our bikes?

0:08:580:09:02

Hey up, Tina.

0:09:100:09:13

-A penny for your thoughts.

-Hi, Bobby.

0:09:130:09:15

I was just thinking about Lisa.

0:09:150:09:18

I'm just about to take the taxi out.

0:09:180:09:20

-How are the city roads looking?

-Fine.

0:09:200:09:24

But I'd avoid the Cowmarket Lane area. There's road works

0:09:240:09:28

-and there's a bad traffic jam.

-Really? I must remember.

0:09:280:09:31

-Thanks, Bobby.

-OK. Bye!

0:09:310:09:34

See you later.

0:09:340:09:35

Now it's time for me to get on with some hard work.

0:09:350:09:39

# City roads are waiting

0:09:400:09:44

# And the traffic lights are changing

0:09:440:09:47

# Police cars are cruising

0:09:480:09:52

# The trucks keep on trucking

0:09:520:09:54

# And the city roads are waiting for me...

0:09:540:09:57

# To take a drive in my pretty pink taxi

0:09:570:10:00

# People wave me down in my pink taxi

0:10:000:10:06

# Get into the back and just relax for the ride

0:10:060:10:09

# Pretty pink taxi She's going for a drive... #

0:10:090:10:16

Look in the mirror, shift that gear.

0:10:160:10:19

The taxi takes the strain.

0:10:190:10:24

The radio calls up a taxi fare. Who am I going to meet?

0:10:270:10:31

HORN BEEPS

0:10:320:10:33

# Looking for a job in my pretty pink taxi

0:10:350:10:37

# Oh-oh

0:10:370:10:39

# Cruising the city in my pretty pink taxi

0:10:410:10:44

# Yeah!

0:10:440:10:47

# Drive, drive, driving my pretty pink taxi

0:10:470:10:52

# Ride, ride, ride where you want to go... #

0:10:550:11:00

Taxi!

0:11:000:11:01

# I need to think of driving my pretty pink taxi

0:11:030:11:07

# People wave me down and relax for the ride. #

0:11:070:11:13

It's time for a cuppa. Ah!

0:11:170:11:19

Before I have my break, I'll lay Raymond's Mr Cushion costume out.

0:11:190:11:24

He's bound to be in a huge rush between finishing work

0:11:260:11:30

and going to nursery.

0:11:300:11:33

He always gets a little bit nervous before a show.

0:11:330:11:36

But he's so adorable in his Mr Cushion costume.

0:11:360:11:40

It has to be one of my favourites.

0:11:400:11:43

# Sons of the sea Bobbing up and down like this

0:11:430:11:48

# Sailing the ocean Bobbing up and down like this. #

0:11:480:11:53

Oh, I won't forget you, Mr Cushion.

0:11:530:11:56

And I won't forget my little girl either.

0:11:560:12:00

# I love to skip in Riverseafingal Riverseafingal, that's for me. #

0:12:000:12:07

Try and stay on the cycle lanes.

0:12:120:12:14

Well done, Lisa. You're doing really well.

0:12:140:12:17

It'll soon be time to go and see your dad as Mr Cushion, won't it?

0:12:170:12:23

I hope your mum remembers to pick him up in her taxi.

0:12:230:12:26

'Don't forget to bring Daddy to the nursery.'

0:12:290:12:32

-I'm here, love.

-Great timing.

0:12:320:12:35

-My train arrived on time.

-We don't have any time to waste.

0:12:350:12:39

OK, my costume.

0:12:390:12:41

-What would I do without you?

-Yikes! We better get going.

0:12:470:12:51

Come on!

0:12:510:12:52

I'll take the shortcut by Cowmarket Lane.

0:12:550:12:58

-Oops!

-Oh, no!

0:13:150:13:16

Not a traffic jam!

0:13:160:13:18

It's road works. What are we going to do?

0:13:180:13:22

I've been working hard all day and now...

0:13:220:13:26

we're stuck in this traffic jam because of the road works.

0:13:260:13:30

What did I do wrong?

0:13:300:13:33

Where did the time go?

0:13:330:13:35

At eight o'clock I went to Granny Murray's house to drop Lisa off.

0:13:350:13:40

I reminded Granny Murray that Raymond was going to Lisa's nursery

0:13:400:13:45

at three o'clock to perform.

0:13:450:13:47

Lisa gave me a knotted handkerchief so that I wouldn't forget.

0:13:470:13:52

At nine o'clock I did my weekly checks on the taxi.

0:13:520:13:57

Mickey John wanted to observe me at my job.

0:13:570:14:00

He found it very interesting.

0:14:000:14:03

At ten o'clock, Bobby warned me to avoid Cowmarket Lane

0:14:030:14:07

because of road works.

0:14:070:14:08

At two o'clock, Raymond rushed in to get ready for the show.

0:14:080:14:13

I took a shortcut so we wouldn't be late.

0:14:130:14:15

Now it's nearly three o'clock and we're stuck in a traffic jam.

0:14:150:14:20

What can I do?

0:14:200:14:21

Remember, always keep to the lanes provided.

0:14:220:14:27

Always keep to the lanes provided.

0:14:280:14:31

Of course!

0:14:310:14:33

Bobby told me about the road works in Cowmarket Lane.

0:14:330:14:36

If I'd kept to the lanes provided, we wouldn't be stuck.

0:14:360:14:40

I have to keep to the special taxi lanes provided.

0:14:400:14:45

It's a race against time.

0:14:450:14:47

# I've got to do it I've got to do it

0:14:480:14:49

# I've got to beat the clock before the chime

0:14:490:14:52

# I've got to sort it I've got to sort it

0:14:520:14:55

# I've got to do the job on time

0:14:550:14:57

# Like a busy bee I'm going to beat that bong

0:14:570:15:00

# I'm going to finish this job before I finish that so-o-o-ong

0:15:000:15:03

# Do we think she's going to do it?

0:15:030:15:05

# Do the job that needs to be done

0:15:050:15:08

# Will she know how to fix it?

0:15:080:15:10

# Will she finish what she has begun?

0:15:100:15:12

# As sure as we're friends She will get there in the end

0:15:120:15:15

# Cos she knows what she should do

0:15:150:15:18

-# I'm going to do it

-She's going to do it

0:15:180:15:20

# I'm going to beat the clock before the chime

0:15:200:15:22

-# I'm going to sort it

-She's going to sort it

0:15:220:15:24

# I'm going to do the job on time

0:15:240:15:27

# Like a busy bee I'm going to beat that bong

0:15:270:15:30

# I'm going to finish the job before I finish this song... #

0:15:300:15:34

You look wonderful, darling.

0:15:340:15:36

-Wish me luck.

-Good luck.

0:15:360:15:38

They're going to love you!

0:15:380:15:41

Here comes Mr Cushion.

0:15:420:15:44

I wish I could see our little girl watching the show.

0:15:440:15:49

# Bobbing up and down like this Sailing the ocean

# Bobbing up and down like this. # Yeah!

0:16:040:16:08

-Cheerio now.

-ALL: Bye.

0:16:110:16:14

Hiya.

0:16:240:16:26

Come away in.

0:16:260:16:28

Look who's here, Lisa.

0:16:280:16:30

-Hello, Lisa.

-Hi.

0:16:300:16:33

Hello. Did you have a nice day with Granny Murray?

0:16:330:16:37

-You say thanks to Granny Murray.

-Thank you, Granny Murray.

0:16:370:16:41

Oh! And thanks from me too, Granny Murray.

0:16:410:16:44

I remembered what you said. I always keep to the lanes provided.

0:16:440:16:49

-It saved the day.

-Is that so?

0:16:490:16:52

Come on. You'll want to be home.

0:16:520:16:55

-Bye-bye, my darlings. Looking forward to next time.

-Me too.

0:17:010:17:05

-Grrr!

-Grrrr!

0:17:050:17:07

-Come on. Shall we go and talk about our time away?

-No.

0:17:070:17:12

I suppose you'll want me to tell you all about my time too.

0:17:120:17:17

# Well, there was laying, running, creeping, jumping

0:17:170:17:21

# Chasing, painting, laughing

0:17:210:17:22

# Bathing, dressing, singing

0:17:220:17:24

# Riding, hiding, jumping up and turning round

0:17:240:17:28

# Dressing up and sitting down. #

0:17:280:17:32

What was really special about today?

0:17:330:17:37

Well, Claude was dressed as a rally car driver.

0:17:370:17:42

The children had built a rally racetrack

0:17:420:17:45

and enjoyed racing their cars around.

0:17:450:17:47

When Tina came with Lisa, she reminded me Raymond

0:17:470:17:51

would be doing his Mr Cushion Show at nursery.

0:17:510:17:54

Before we went for our bike ride, Dr Juno said it was very important

0:17:540:17:59

to give our bikes a check over.

0:17:590:18:01

So that's what we did.

0:18:010:18:03

We all had a lovely safe bike ride

0:18:030:18:06

along the cycle lanes in Riverseafingal.

0:18:060:18:09

Then we went to the nursery to see Mr Cushion.

0:18:090:18:13

Tina got Raymond there on time and we all had lots of fun

0:18:130:18:17

bobbing up and down with Mr Cushion.

0:18:170:18:19

When Tina came to collect Lisa, she told me she'd remembered

0:18:190:18:23

that I said, "Always keep to the lanes provided."

0:18:230:18:28

It saved the day.

0:18:280:18:31

Oh! I think I need to sit on a cushion

0:18:320:18:35

after all that bobbing up and down with Mr Cushion.

0:18:350:18:39

I hope you enjoyed yourself.

0:18:390:18:41

Me too! Bye-bye, honey pie.
