O Retorno de Mary Poppins - Trip a Little Light Fantastic

Disney


Let's say you're lost in a park, sure
You can give in to the dark or
You can trip a little light fantastic with me
When you're alone in your room
Your choice's just embrace the gloom
Or you can trip a little light fantastic with me

For if you hide under the covers
You might never see the day
But if a spark can start inside your heart
Then you can always find the way
So when life is getting dreary
Just pretend that you're a leerie
As you trip a little light fantastic with me

What's a leerie?
Why, it's what we lamplighters call ourselves, of course
Leeries trip the lights and lead the way!

Now when you're stuck in the mist, sure
You can struggle and resist or
You can trip a little light fantastic with me
Now say you're lost in the crowd, well
You can stamp and scream out loud or
You can trip a little light fantastic with me

And when the fog comes rolling in, just
Keep your feet upon the path
Mustn't mope and frown or worst lie down
Don't let it be your epitaph

So when life is getting scary, be your own illuminary
Who can shine the light for all the world to see
As you trip a little light fantastic with me

A leerie loves the edge of night
Though dim to him the world looks bright
he's got the gift of second sight
To trip a little light fantastic
A leerie's job's to light the way
To tame the night and make it day
We mimic the moon, yes that's our aim
For we're the keepers of the flame

And if you're deep inside the tunnel
When there is no end in sight
Well just carry on until the dawn
It's darkest right before the light

As you trip a little light fantastic
Won't you trip a little light fantastic
Come on, trip a little light fantastic with me

Oy, oy, oy

Come along, join us in a bit of kick and prance
What did he say?
Kick and prance, it means dance! It's leerie speak
You don't say the words you mean, you say something that rhymes, only
Here, I'll show you how it works
Angus! Give us your weep and wail
To the rest of ya, that means tail
I was short of a sheet
It was in the street
Just a tumble down a sink
Just to get himself a drink
Then I pinch what's better
He grabbed his ladder
He smiled and smirked to work!
You see there's nothing to it
Can you speak leerie Mary Poppins?
Can I speak leerie?
Course she can, she's Mary Poppins!
Can we do it with you?
Please!
Oh very well then
Children, tell us story tale
Give us your weep and wail!
Well, we had this boat
Rabbit in the hole
That fell and broke
Bicycle spoke
So we took it to a shop
Like a lollipop
And went upside down
That's a circus clown
Then went to the bank
Rattle and clank
Got lost in the fog
Lump on the log
Till we found a friend
To stand and defend
Who took us on a trip
Snapped a horse's whip
And we tripped a little light fantastic!
Now that sounds a little bit bombastic
But they tripped the light
We tripped a light
Let's trip a little light fantastic!

Join us Mary Poppins!
Hey

You've got it, now let's get you all back home

Now if you're life is getting foggy
That's no reason to complain
There's so much in store, inside the door at 17 Cherry Tree Lane

So when troubles are incessant
Simply be more incandescent
For your light comes with a lifetime guarantee
As you trip a little light fantastic
Won't you trip a little light fantastic
Come on, trip a little light fantastic with me
(Went to the bank! Rattle and clank!
Met with the boss! Pitch and toss!
Got lost in the fog! Lump on a log!)
Trip a little light fantastic!
