Happy Little Vegemite, Sisters
Vegemite, invented in 1923 by food technologist, Dr. Cyril P. Callister, is somewhat of a National Treasure, and consumed by Australians at home and abroad. It is often playfully described as a "national food". We all grew up on it and take it with us when we travel.
The Vegemite Jingle gave rise to the Australian slang expression 'Happy Little Vegemite', (a happy person) in the 1980s.
This is the JINGLE to click on, and below are the words. Can you guess which happy little Vegemite sister is Madame.
We're hap-py lit-tle Veg-e-mites
As bright as bright can be.
We all en-joy our Ve-ge-mite
For break-fast, lunch, and tea.
Our mum-mies say we're grow-ing stron-ger
Eve-ry sin-gle week,
Be-cause we love our Ve-ge-mite -
We all a-dore our Ve-ge-mite -
It puts a rose in eve-ry cheek.
