Eglantine/Don't Let Me Down



Emelius:

Let us strike a bargain, you possess a gift

but I can speak the jargon

that can give your gift the needed lift.

You possess the know-how

and I command the show-how

Oh, how successful you could be ... with me!

Eglantine, Eglantine!

Oh, how you’ll shine!

Your lot and my lot have got to combine.

Eglantine, Eglantine!

Hark to the stars

Destiny calls us

the future is ours!

As the shine sells the boot,

and the blossoms the fruit

all you need to succeed in your plan

is the proper ally upon whom to rely

and I'm your man.

For I have an acumen that's nigh superhuman.

I sell things that nobody can!

So I humbly suggest

you accept to my behest

I'm your man!

Eglantine, Eglantine

Oh, how you’ll shine

Your lot and my lot have got to combine

Eglantine, Eglantine

Hark to the stars

Destiny calls us ... the future is ours!

With my expert pantomiming

the proper taste and timing

I'll introduce you in the manner grand

I'll wet their appetite for you

I'll set the scene so right for you

we'll have the beggars eating out of your hand.

As the words sell the tune

and the moonbeams the moon, all you need to succeed in your plan

is a champion rare, with a flourish ... and a flair

And I'm your man!

Eglentine:

I have always had a bit of a knack for witchcraft

Common spells and simple charms came naturally

so when the war began, I conjured up a plan

to do my bit in the national emergency.

I enrolled in your Correspondence College of Witchcraft

And I slaved at every lesson as it came.

But the spell I counted on,

Is the lesson that is gone.

It's disappeared, and you're the one to blame!

Your suggestions are rash and your manner is brash

and I've no time to waste, Mister Brown.

If I am to proceed, it's that book that I need.

Don’t let me down!

But if you'll see me through

I'll discuss it with you

Though I've no taste for playing the clown

If I meet with success, then I might acquiesce-

Emelius:

I won't let you down!

Eglantine, Eglantine!

Oh, how you’ll shine!

Your lot and my lot have got to combine

Eglantine, Eglantine!

Hark to the stars

Both:

Destiny calls us, the future is ours!
