Sing along “Chim chim cher-ee” (buy the album with all songs from “Mary Poppins”):

Cm G+ Cm7 F
Chim chiminey, chim chiminey, chim chim cheree!
Fm Cm D D7-5 G7
A sweep is as lucky, as lucky can be.
Cm G+ Cm7 F
Chim chiminey, chim chiminey, chim chim cheroo!

Fm Cm G7 G7+ Cm
Good luck will rub off when I shake ‘ands with you,
Fm Cm G7 Cm
Or blow me a kiss and that’s lucky too.
Cm G+ Cm7 F
Now as the ladder of life ‘as been strung,
Fm Cm D D7-5 G7
you may think a sweep’s on the bottom most rung.
Cm G+ Cm7 F
Though I spends me time in the ashes and smoke,
Fm Cm G7 G+ G7 Cm
in this ‘ole wide world there’s no happier bloke.

Cm G+ Cm7 F
Up 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 F
When there’s ‘ardly no day nor hardly no night,
Fm Cm G7 G+ G7 Cm
there’s things’alf in shadow and ‘alfway in light,
Fm Cm G7 Cm
On 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!
