Chim-Chim Cher-ee

Lyrics from "Mary Poppins"
Composed by Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman

Chim chiminy
Chim chiminy
Chim chim cher-ee!
A sweep is as lucky
As lucky can be

Chim chiminy
Chim chiminy
Chim chim cher-oo!
Good luck will rub off when
I shakes hands with you
Or blow me a kiss
And that's lucky too

Now as the ladder of life
Has been strung
You might think a sweep's
On the bottommost rung

Though I spends me time
In the ashes and smoke
In this whole wide world
There's no happier bloke

Chim chiminy
Chim chiminy
Chim chim cher-ee!
A sweep is as lucky
As lucky can be

Chim chiminy
Chim chiminy
Chim chim cher-oo!
Good luck will rub off when I shakes hands with you

Chim chiminy
Chim chiminy
Chim chim cher-ee!
A sweep is as lucky
As lucky can be

Chim chiminy
Chim chiminy
Chim chim cher-oo!
Good luck will rub off when I shakes hands with you

I choose me bristles with pride, yes, I do
A broom for the shaft and a brush for the flue

Up where the smoke is
All billowed and curled
'Tween pavement and stars
Is the chimney-sweep world

When there's hardly no day
Nor hardly no night
There's things half in shadow
And half way in light
On the rooftops of London
Coo, what a sight

Chim chiminy
Chim chiminy
Chim chim cher-ee!
When you're with a sweep
You're in glad company

Nowhere is there
A more happier crew
Than them what sings
Chim chim cher-ee
Chim cher-oo!
Chim chim chiminy
Chim chim
Cher-ee chim cher-oo!
