Portobello Road

Lyrics from Bedknobs and Broomsticks
Composed by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman


Portobello Road, Portobello Road
Street where the riches of ages are stowed
Anything and everything a chap can unload
Is sold off the barrow in Portabello Road
You'll find what you want in the Portabello Road

Rare alabaster, genuine plaster
A filigreed samovar owned by the tzars
A pen used by Shelley, a new Botticelli
The snippers that clipped old King Edward's cigars

Waterford Crystals, Napoleon's pistols
Society heirlooms with genuine gems
Rembrants, El Grecos, Toulouse Letrec-os
Painted last week on the banks of the Thames

Portobello Road, Portobello Road
Street where the riches of ages are stowed
Anything and everything a chap can unload
Is sold off the barrow in Portabello Road
You'll meet all your chums in the Portobello Road

Burkes Peerage, The Bride Book
The Fish Monger's Guide Book
A victorian novel, The Unwanted Son
The History of Potting, The Yearbook of Yachting
The leatherbound life of Attila the Hun

Portobello Road, Portobello Road
Street where the riches of ages are stowed
Artifacts to glorify our regal abode
Are hidden in the flotsam in Portobello Road

Tokens and treasures, yesterday's pleasures
Cheap imitations of heirlooms of old
Dented and tarnished, scarred and unvarnished
In old Portobello, they're bought and they're sold
You can eat like a king here in Portobello Road

Portobello Road, Portobello Road
All kinds of things are happening in Portobello Road
You'll feel like a ballerina when you're hopping like a toad
When you kick your heels up down in Portobello Road
