"Trip a Little Light Fantastic"

[JACK]
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 is 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

[JOHN]
What's a leerie?

[JACK]
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 worse, lie down
Don't let it be your epitaph

So when life is getting scary, be your own illuminary
Who can shine their 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

[LEERIES]
To trip a little light fantastic!

[JACK]
A leerie's job's to light the way

[LEERIES]
To take the night and make it day

[JACK]
We mimic the moon, yes that's our aim

[JACK and LEERIES]
For we're the keepers of the flame

[JACK]
And if you're deep inside a 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

[instrumental]
(Oy! Oy! Oy!)

[ANGUS]
Come along, join us in a bit of a kick and prance

[JOHN]
What did he say?

[JACK]
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"

[ANGUS]
I was short of a sheet

[JACK]
It was in the street

[ANGUS]
Just a tumble down a sink

[JACK]
Just to get himself a drink

[ANGUS]
Then I pinch what's fatter

[JACK]
He grabbed his ladder

[ANGUS]
To smile and smirk-

[JACK and ANGUS]
To work!

[JACK]
You see, there's nothing to it

[ANNABEL]
Can you speak leerie, Mary Poppins?

[MARY POPPINS]
Can I speak leerie?

[JACK]
Of course she can. She's Mary Poppins!

[GEORGIE]
Can we do it with you?

[JOHN and ANNABEL]
Please?

[MARY POPPINS]
Oh, very well then

[JACK]
Children, tell us yer sorry tale

[LEERIES]
Give us your weep and wail!

[JOHN]
Well, we had this bowl

[MARY POPPINS]
Rabbit in the hole

[ANNABEL]
That fell and broke

[MARY POPPINS]
Bicycle spoke

[JOHN]
So we took it to a shop

[MARY POPPINS]
Like a lollipop

[GEORGIE]
And went upside down!

[MARY POPPINS]
That's a circus clown

[JOHN]
Then went to the bank

[MARY POPPINS]
Rattle and clank

[ANNABEL]
Got lost in the fog

[MARY POPPINS]
Lump on a log

[JOHN]
Till we found a friend

[MARY POPPINS]
To stand and defend

[ANNABEL]
Who took us on a trip

[MARY POPPINS]
Snapped a horse's whip

[CHILDREN]
And we tripped a little light fantastic!

[MARY POPPINS]
Now that sounds a little bit bombastic

[JACK]
But they tripped the light-

[CHILDREN]
We tripped a light!

[ALL]
Let's trip a little light fantastic!

[instrumental]

[LEERIES]
Join us, Mary Poppins!
Hey!

[instrumental]

[JACK]
(spoken) You've got it-
Now let's get you all back home!

[ALL]
Now if your life is getting foggy
That's no reason to complain

[JACK]
There's so much in store, inside the door

[ALL]
Of 17 Cherry Tree Lane

[JACK]
So when troubles are incessant
Simply be more incandescent
For your light comes with a lifetime guarantee
As you-

[ALL]
Trip a little light fantastic

[JACK]
Won't you-

[ALL]
Trip a little light fantastic

[JACK]
Come on!

[ALL]
Trip a little light fantastic

[JACK]
With me!

[CHILDREN and LEERIES]
Went to the bank! Rattle and clank!
Met with the boss! Pitch and toss!
Got lost in the fog! Lump on a log!

[ALL]
Trip a little light fantastic!
