Eglantine

Lyrics from Bedknobs and Broomsticks
Composed by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
Performed by David Tomlinson and Angela Lansbury


[Mr. Brown:] Let us strike a bargain
You possess a gift
But I can speak the jargon
That will give your gift the needed lift

You possess the know-how
And I command the show-how
Oh, how successful you could be
With me

Eglantine, Eglantine
Oh, how you shine
Your lot and my lot
Have got to combine

Eglantine, Eglantine
Hark to the stars
Destiny calls us
The future is ours



As the shine sells the boot
And the blossoms, the fruit
All you need to succeed in your plan
Is the proper ally
Upon whom to rely
And I'm your man

For I have an acumen
That's nigh superhuman
I sell things that nobody can

So I humbly suggest
You accept my behest
I'm your man

Eglantine, Eglantine
Oh, how you shine
Your lot and my lot
Have got to combine

Eglantine, Eglantine
Hark to the stars
Destiny calls us
The future is ours

With my expert pantomiming
The proper taste in timing
I'll introduce you in the manner grand
I'll whet their appetite for you
I'll set the scene so right for you
We'll have the beggars eating out of your hand

As the words sell the tune
And the moonbeams, the moon
All you need to succeed in your plan
Is a champion rare
With a flourish and a flair
And I'm your man

[Miss Price:] I have always had a bit of a knack for witchcraft
Common spells and simple charms came naturally
So when the war began
I conjured up a plan
To do my bit in the national emergency

I enrolled in your correspondence college of witchcraft
And I slaved at every lesson as it came
But the spell I counted on
Is the lesson that is gone
It's disappeared
And you're the one to blame

Your suggestions are rash
And your manner is brash
And I've no time to waste, Mr. Brown
If I am to proceed
It's that book that I need
Don't let me down

But if you'll see me through
I'll discuss it with you
Though I've no taste for playing a clown
If I meet with success
Then I might acquiesce

[Mr. Brown:] I won't let you down

Eglantine, Eglantine
Oh, how you shine
Your lot and my lot have got to combine

Eglantine, Eglantine
Hark to the stars
Destiny calls us
The future is ours
