HAPPY TALK

 

Happy talky talky happy talk

Talk about things you like to do

You’ve got to have a dream

If you don’t have a dream

How you gonna have a dream come true

 

Talk about the moon

Floating in the sky

Floating like a lily on a lake

Talk about the birds

Learning how to fly

Making all the music they can make

 

 

ABRACADABRA

 

I heat up, I can’t cool down

You got me spinning

‘Round and ’round

‘Round and ’round and ’round it goes

Where it stops nobody knows

 

Abra abracadabra

I wanna reach out and grab ya

Abra abracadabra

Abracadabra

 

Every time, you call my name

I heat up

like a burning flame

‘Round and ’round and ’round it goes

Where it stops nobody knows

 

Abra abracadabra

I wanna reach out and grab ya

Abra abracadabra

Abracadabra

 

I WANT A LAMP WITH A GENIE

 

I want a lamp with a Genie

I want a lamp with a Genie

Just like old Widow Twanky

Rubbing the lamp on her hanky

I don’t want a lamp with a meenie

I don’t want to be a has-beenie

All I want is a lamp with a Gee gee gee x18

Genie!

 

 

WHISTLE A HAPPY TUNE

 

Whenever I feel afraid, I hold my head erect

And whistle a happy tune, so no one will suspect

I’m afraid

I whistle a happy tune, and every single time,

The happiness in the tune convinces me that I’m…

not afraid

 

The result of this deception is very strange to tell,

For when I fool the people I fear, I fool myself as well

 

I whistle a happy tune, and every single time,

The happiness in the tune convinces me that I’m ….

not afraid

 

TINKLE TINKLE TINKLE

 

Tinkle, tinkle, tinkle

what if the raindrops sprinkle

Tie a little bell to your dancing shoes and the sun will shine

 

Tinkle, tinkle, tinkle

what if the stars don’t twinkle

Tie a little bell to your dancing shoes and the sun will shine

 

When you moan and groan, then trouble hangs around,

he runs miles and miles from ev’ry happy sound

 

Tinkle, tinkle, tinkle

what if the raindrops sprinkle

Tie a little bell to your dancing shoes and the sun will shine

 


 

The Launderettes

IN OLD PEKING

 

In old Peking on market day, sunshine fills the air

Grab a rickshaw parking bay, if there’s one to spare

Join us and you’ll want to stay, and you’ll shout out loud

In old Peking on market day, you’ll find a happy crowd

 

In old Peking on market day, everything for you

In a magic carpet way, all your dreams come true

Join us and you’ll want to stay, and you’ll shout out loud

In old Peking on market day, you’ll find a happy crowd

In old Peking on market day, you’ll find a happy crowd

 

 

MR WU

 

Oh Mister Wu,

what shall I do?

I’ve got those kind of Limehouse Chinese Laundry Blues

 

This funny feeling,

keeps me stealing,

why don’t you throw your sweetheart over do

 

My vest’s so short

that it won’t fit my little brother

And my new Sunday shirt has got a perforated rudder

 

Oh Mister Wu,

I’m telling you,

I’ve got those kind of Limehouse Chinese Laundry Blues

 

JOLLY WASHA DAY

 

Ain’t it a glorious day

Nice as a morning in May

I feel like I could fly

Have you ever seen, our clothes so clean

And I’ll tell you why……

 

Oh it’s a jolly washa day with Twanky,

Twanky makes your clothes so bright

When the day is grey and ordinary,

Twanky makes your clothes so white

Oh happiness is blooming all around us,

when she gives our handkerchiefs a scrub

She hangs a clothes wire, by the fire,

She can’t afford a tumble dryer

Oh it’s a jolly washia day with Twanky,

Widow Twanky is the one that we all love

 

I WANT MONEY

 

The best things in life are free

But you can give them to the birds and bees

I want money

That’s what I want

That’s what I want

That’s what I want

 

 

The best love is such a thrill

But love will never ever pay the bills

I want money

That’s what I want

That’s what I want

That’s what I want

 

I want money!!!

That’s what I want

That’s what I want

 

PANTOMIME

 

Pantomime, Pantomime, what a thrill, what a time

When all the world its cares can leave, in the land of Make Believe

 

Pantomime, Pantomime, Music plays, keeping time

With every heart that knows the score and we’re all just kids once more

 

With knaves and princes, dames and clowns,

all seeking crowns of gold

Through tears and laughter after all,

and a happy ending to behold

 

Pantomime, Pantomime, on it goes, so sublime

It’s entertainment’s greatest Show,

So! Long live Pantomime!

 

WE’D LIKE TO THANK YOU WIDOW TWANKY

 

We’d like to thank you Widow Twanky, for kindly washing all our smalls

Our clothes are getting pretty dirty, from eating sweet and sour balls

And though we love you Widow Twanky, there’s one more thing we’d like to say

Why do all the white things that we send you, always come back grey

 

Why don’t you change your washing powder, just like they tell you on the box

Our clothes are covered in clam chowder, and we’ve got lots of smelly socks

And though we love you Widow Twanky, there’s one more thing we’d like do

Though we scrub and scrub, and keep on scrubbing, why don’t we … SCRUB YOU!

Come on, be my baby, come on

HAVANA

 

Havana, ooh na-na

Half of my heart is in Havana, ooh-na-na

He took me back to East Atlanta, na-na-na

Oh, but my heart is in Havana

There’s somethin’ ’bout his manners

Havana, ooh na-na
