"Chim Chim Cher-ee!" as written by and Robert B. Sherman Richard M. Sherman....
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 shakes 'ands with you
Or blow me a kiss
And that's lucky too

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

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

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 shakes 'ands with you

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 shakes 'ands with you

I choose me bristles with pride
Yes, I do
A broom for the shaft
And a brush for the flume

Up where the smoke is
All billered and curled
'Tween pavement and stars
Is the chimney sweep world

When the's 'ardly no day
Nor 'ardly no night
There's things 'alf in shadow
And 'alf way in light
On the roof tops of London
Coo, what a sight

Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee
When you're with a sweep
You're in glad company

No where is there
A more 'appier crew

Than them wot sings
Chim chim cher-ee
Chim cher-oo
Chim chim cher-ee
Chim chim cher-ee chim cher-oo

    General CommentThe song's about a dirty shaft belonging to someone too stoopid to know that he hasn't grown in decades...and all by choice. Whoopie for him. He's such a free, independent soul! Let's just hope the next time he sticks his shaft into someone it catches a nasty germ;)

    Lyric CorrectionTwo changes in one line - this should be, "a broom for the shaft, and a brush for the flue". Almost no site on the internet has it correct (except disneyclips.com/lyrics/… ), but listen carefully to the song via youtube, and you can hear it.
