From the movie: "Mary Poppins" by Walt Disney
Music and lyrics by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
Intro: Cm G7/9 Cm6 G7 Cm G7-9 Cm6 G7
Cm G+ Cm7 FChim chiminey, chim chiminey, chim chim cheree!
Fm Cm D D7-5 G7A sweep is as lucky, as lucky can be.
Cm G+ Cm7 FChim chiminey, chim chiminey, chim chim cheroo!
Fm Cm G7 G7+ CmGood luck will rub off when I shake 'ands with you,
Fm Cm G7 CmOr blow me a kiss and that's lucky too.
Cm G+ Cm7 FNow as the ladder of life 'as been strung,
Fm Cm D D7-5 G7you may think a sweep's on the bottom most rung.
Cm G+ Cm7 FThough I spends me time in the ashes and smoke,
Fm Cm G7 G+ G7 Cmin this 'ole wide world there's no happier bloke.
Cm G+ Cm7 FUp where the smoke is all billered and curled,
Fm Cm'Tween pavement and stars,
D D7-5 G7 G+is the chimney sweep world.
G7 Cm G+ Cm7 FWhen there's 'ardly no day nor hardly no night,
Fm Cm G7 G+ G7 Cmthere's things'alf in shadow and 'alfway in light,
Fm Cm G7 CmOn the rooftops of London, coo, what a sight!
2. Chim chiminey, chim chiminey, chim chim cheree!
When you're with a sweep you're in glad company.
Nowhere is there a more 'appier crew
Than them what sings "chim chim cheree, chim cheroo!"
Chim chiminey chim chim, cheree chim cheeroo!
I choose me bristles with pride, yes, I do:
A broom for the shaft and a brush for the flue.
Tough I'm covered with soot from the 'ead to me toes,
A sweep knows 'es welcome wherever he goes.
Up where the smoke is all billered and curled,
'Tween pavement and stars,
is the chimney sweep world.
When there's hardly no day nor hardly no night,
there's things half in shadow and halfway in light,
On the rooftops of London, coo, what a sight!
