Have a banana premium tea jingle

To settle an argument, I can remember a jingle about bananas and premium tea. So can the chief cook and bottle washer. Is this a false memory, can't find anything on the intrawebby?

I can recall my father using the refrain "Have a banana!", but never with any explanation. Would also be glad to hear of its origin.

"Let's all go down the Strand and have a banana" - East End knees up sort of song...

Don't remember any connection with tea... not getting muddled with the PG Tips chimps are you?

I recall it being. ' have a banana, premium tea' as an annoying jingle. But can't find any tea brand from the 50' s or so called Premium Tea. Wonder if this is a fake memory but wife thinks there was too.

Brooke Bond chimps? Certainly bananas sounds appropriate, but don't remember much of the ads.

You're not bananas then?

Just googled that and found the fascinating info that the Manfred's Mike D'Abo wrote the "Finger of Fudge" jingle... From "Glad Rags and Handbags" to that...

At school the PE torturer would divide us into teams of 4. Lacking coloured bands, one team would wear shirts, the others skin, only ever counted the 3 with the last being just four.
