歌詞


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. Time to send out the call to arms. 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 take 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 a 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 'tale'"
"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 yer story tale"
"Give us your weep and wail!"

"Well, we had this bowl"
"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!
