Look at this! Bent umbrella
Hardly know why he'd throw it away
I've a trick with some wire and stick
So I'll save it for a rainy day

Here's a glove with no partner
It got lost so she tossed you aside but
I've a date for ya, wooly mate
And the half-a-heaven you provide

Almost nearly perfect
Yes it's near enough to new
Your trash is my treasure
Your goodbye is my how d'ya do

How d'ya do
How d'ya do again
How d'ya do
Very well then

Here's a coin, well it once was
Now it's a a smashed penny token
But I know that my Grandpa Joe
Would say "this is only barely broken"

Here's a tin, let me at it
When I run everyone is a fan
Hear the roar as I kick and I score
Then my pitch is on the label of the can

Almost nearly perfect
Yes it's near enough to new
Your trash is my treasure
Your goodbye is my how d'ya do

Found a book with missing pages
Not a problem, I know how it ends
Good King Charlie in his kingdom
Lots of chocolate, lots of friends

How d'ya do! Loyal subject
Bring me sweets, royal treats for a king
Must be pure for a connoisseur
Or the executioners axe shall swing

But till then, I'm just Charlie
Full of talk but no chocolate bars
But someday, when I have my say
Mister Wonka will decree, every candy shall be free
There'll be Wonka chocolates falling from the stars

And that'll be absolutely perfect
Just enough to make you cry

Hear the whistle blowing
How d'ya do has to be
Goodbye
Goodbye

I'm home
