“Chim Chim Cher-ee” Lyrics

Chim-chimmeny, chim-chimmeny, chim-chim cheree
A sweeper’s as lucky as lucky can be
Chim-chimmeny, chim-chimmeny, chim-chim cheroo
Good luck will rub off when I shakes hands with you
Or blow me a kiss, and that’s lucky too

Now as the ladder of life has been strung
You may think a sweep’s on the bottommost rung
Though I spends me time in the ashes and smoke
In this whole wide world, there’s no happier bloke

Chim-chimmeny, chim-chimmeny, chim-chim cheree
A sweeper’s as lucky as lucky can be
Chim-chimmeny, chim-chimmeny, chim-chim cheroo
Good luck will rub off when I shakes hands with you
Or blow me a kiss, and that’s lucky too

I choose me bristles with pride, yes, I do
A broom for the shaft and a brush for the flu
Though I’m covered with soot from me head to me toes
A sweep knows he’s welcome wherever he goes

Chim-chimmeny, chim-chimmeny, chim-chim cheree
A sweeper’s as lucky as lucky can be
Chim-chimmeny, chim-chimmeny, chim-chim cheroo
Good luck will rub off when I shakes hands with you
Or blow me a kiss, and that’s lucky too

Up where the smoke is all billowed and curled
’Tween pavement and stars is the chimney sweep world
Where there’s hardly no day, and there’s hardly no night
There’s things half in shadow and halfway in light
On the rooftops of London
Ooh, what a sight

Chim-chimmeny, chim-chimmeny, chim-chim cheree
When you’re with a sweep, you’re in glad company
Nowhere is there a more happier crew
Than them what sings chim-chim cheree, chim cheroo

Chim-chimmeny, chim-chimmeny, chim-chim cheree
When you’re with a sweep, you’re in glad company
Nowhere is there a more happier crew
Than them what sings chim-chim cheree, chim cheroo

Chim-chimmeny chim-chim, cheree chim cheroo
