Chim Chim Cher-ee

"Chim Chim Cher-ee" is a song originally by Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews, featured in the film Mary Poppins, that is covered by The Chipmunks and Dave Seville in the album The Chipmunks Go to the Movies.


The Chipmunks:
Chim chiminey, chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee!
A sweep is as lucky
As lucky can be

Chim chiminey, chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-oo!
Good luck will rub off
When I shake 'ands with you
Or blow me a kiss, and that's lucky too

Now as the ladder of life 'as been strung (ooh)
You may think a sweep's (ooh)
On the bottommost rung (ooh)

Though I spends me time (ooh)
In the ashes and smoke (ooh)
In this 'ole wide world (ooh)
There's no 'appier bloke (ooh)

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

Though I'm covered with soot from
Me head to me toes
A sweep knows he's welcome
Wherever he goes

The Chipmunks:
Way up where the smoke is
All billered and curled
'Tween pavement and stars is
The chimney sweep world

When there's 'ardly no day, nor 'ardly no night (ooh)
There's things 'alf in shadow, and 'alfway in light (ooh)

The Chipmunks & Dave:
On the rooftops of London
Coo, what a sight!

The Chipmunks:
(Aah, aah)
Chim chiminey, chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee!
When you're with a sweep
You're in glad company

Nowhere is there a more 'appier crew (ooh)
Than them wot sings (ooh)
"Chim chim cher-ee, chim cher-oo!" (ooh)

The Chipmunks:
Chim chiminey, chim chim
Cher-ee, chim cher-oo!

(Repeat to fade)
