SONG LYRICS:

RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES - Lyrics

LADAH: Come with me to see something strange unfold

Hear the weirdest tale that was ever told

From this rare depiction, some will swear it’s fiction

Yet, each peculiar twist that I tell is true, and you, shall see it in plain view…

Right before your eyes!

Marvel as magic is on display

Right before your eyes!

All might seem tragic, but then it’s ok!

Poof! A new surprise! Right before your eyes.

[Enter ALL] Buckle up, we’re off on a bumpy ride

ALL: La la la la  LAH LA la la la la

LADAH: Where a magic spell and a boy collide

ALL: La la la la LAH LA la la la la

LADAH: Plus our story features…

ALL: Tons of crazy creatures!

Ladahlord: Two atrocious aunts every child will fear… oh dear…

Who knows what might appear?

ALL: Right before your eyes!

Scrumptious and scary adventures start

Right before your eyes!

Children be wary if you’re faint of heart

LADAH: Pray that know one dies!

ALL: Right before your eyes!

We’ll make a potion that can glow in the dark

JAMES: We’ll soar to the northern star
ALL: Things could get kooky and spooky

LADAH: You might spot a shark!

ALL: It’s all a bit bizarre!

Right before your eyes!

There might be sunshine or thunder but we proceed


Right before your eyes!

Right before your eyes!

Whimsy and wonder

What else could you need?

LADAH: We’ve got james and the giant peach that flies
ALL: A pack of actors all in disguise

LADAH: So let that curtain rise!
ALL: Right before…

Right before...

Right before your eyes!!!

ON YOUR WAY HOME - Lyrics

JAMES: Where do you go when you’re flying away

Where do you go when they can’t make you stay?

Over the garden and scraping the tops of trees

On your way home

On your way home

And when you get there, is it perfect?

And when you get there, is there family waiting for you?

I close my eyes, and see them laughing telling jokes,

playing games, all of it true.

How would they feel if your friend James came along too?

(softer)

Where do you go when you start to feel sad?

Everyone’s gone, no more mum, no more dad?

Tucked in the clouds is there somewhere you won’t be alone

And when you get there, is it perfect?

And when you get there, is there someone waiting for you?

May I hold onto your wings and come too?  

On your way home.

RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES (REPRISE 1) - Lyrics

Right before your eyes!

Two atrocious aunts every child will fear… oh dear

PROPERTY OF SPIKER AND SPONGE (0:00 - 1:04) - Lyrics

SPIKER/SPONGE: Ha!

SPIKER: Wretched families, dragging heavy pockets

Ruby pendant, solid silver lockets.

We can help relieve you of some pounds!

SPONGE: Are you callin’ me fat!?

SPIKER: I’m referring to monday, pigeon brain!

SPIKER: Their distracted -- Look at me! I’m stunning!

SPONGE: I swoop in, so masterfully cunning!

SPIKER: We get rich! I do like how that sounds!

HA! HA! HA!

SPIKER: So hard to resist, and if it slips from your wrist?

BOTH: TOO BAD!

Property of Spiker and Sponge.

SPIKER: And heaven forbid you might be missing some quid

BOTH: BOO HOO!

It’s property of Spiker and Sponge!

RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES (REPRISE 2) - Lyrics

LADAH: Right before your eyes!

See a magic spell and a boy collide...

SHAKE IT UP - Lyrics (0:00 - 0:47)

LADAH: Open wide and crawl inside the skin of something new

If you believe what’s up my sleeve

I’ll spin a spell for you!

Then sippity sip - a magic trip - your troubles are skippin’ town

Once the bubblin broth is frothin’ thick then gobble it quickly down

LADAH & INSECTS:

Shake it up! shake it up! (Shake it up? Shake it up?)

Mix around and around! (Mix around and around?)

Hear that bop - that ping poppin’ sound

Give a twist and a turn (give a twist and a turn?)

Let it brim, let it burn! (Let it brim, let it burn?)

We’re gonna whip that potion up then gobble it down gobble it down!

FLOATIN’ ALONG - Lyrics (0:00 - 1:20)

GRASS: The sky is clear and the sea is calm. There’s nothing to do now,

but enjoy the adventure! Tally-ho and away we go!

Just catch this tune and sing it with me

We’ll set our sail for nothin’ but sea

No place where we gotta be - so go

We’re tumblin’ off where nobody’s been

How true adventures always begin

Take a ride on the tide

Bobbin’ high Dippin’ low

No direction a map is never better than

Driftin’ off without a plan

All we need is a song!

At the intersection

Where the ocean meets the sky

WORM: We’re all gonna die!

GRASS: Follow me and float along!

Floatin’ along!

ALL: Floatin’ along

La la la la

La la la

Floatin’ along

GRASS: What could go wrong?

Singing’ a song

ALL: La la la la

La la la

Floatin along!


GETAWAY FOR SPIKER AND SPONGE

SPIKER: We’ll pack up our junk

And shove it all in a trunk

BOTH: A getaway for Spiker and Sponge!

SPONGE: We’re gone in a flash

Grab the rest of the cash!

BOTH: A getaway for Spiker and Sponge!

A getaway for Spiker and Sponge.
