Very silly parody with simple guitar waltz in the background. It vaguely recalls poems by Thomas Hood ("I remember I remember the house where I was born") and A E Housman ("Blue remembered hills"), to whom many apologies, and the advert "Cheese please Louise" all in aid of a cheese (which I quite liked) called Lymeswold from an invented English market town.
The cheese was created in the UK in the 1980s in order to make use of a milk surplus and it was in direct competition with the creamy blue cheeses from the European continent. Eventually Cambozola won the market and Lymeswold faded away and was no more seen (there may also have been a health scare if I recall correctly!)
Interestingly some versions of stilton in supermarkets are now becoming more creamy and less crumbly than before, maybe Lymeswold is coming back in a new guise?!

I remember
I remember
the soft
and tangy taste
The Lymeswold cheese
twixt wholemeal
consumed in
office haste

I remember
I remember
the 80s were
so fine
The Lymeswold cheese
twixt wholemeal
that gorgeous
meal of mine

Into my mouth my
senses please
As at my desk I sat

What was that blue
remembered cheese,
What luscious meal
was that?

Now Cambozol is
all we have,
I see it oh
so plain.

Replacing cheese
we used to have
That cannot come

"Lymeswold please"
I asked Louise
"Fair trolley maid,
with tea"
No finer food than
soft blue cheese
No finer drink for me

Those foreign cheeses
aren't the same
No, Lymeswold was the best

That was that blue
remembered name
I always would request
Lymeswold please,

Louise, Louise...
