Can you imagine that ?.

Interprétée par Emily Blunt, Pixie Davies, Joel Dawson et Nathanael Saleh.

John you’re right.
It’s good to know you’re bright.
For intellect can wash away confusion.
Georgie sees.
And Annabel agrees.
Most folderol’s an optical illusion.
You three know it’s true.
That one plus one is two.
Yes, logic is the rock of our foundation.
I suspect and I’m never incorrect.
That you’re far too old to give into imagination.

No, not yet.

Some people like to splash and play.
Can you imagine that ?
And take a seaside holiday.
Can you imagine that ?
Too much glee leaves rings around the brain.
Take that joy and send it down the drain.

Some people like to laugh at life.
And giggle through the day.
They think the world’s a brand new shiny toy.
And if while dreaming in the clouds.
They fall and go kersplatt.
Although they’re down and bent in half.
They brush right off and start to laugh.
Can you imagine that ?

« On second thoughts perhaps you’re right, it makes no sense to take a bath this early ».
« Wait. I want to take a bath ».
« Oh, really ? Up you go and in you go ».
« Georgie. What happened ? Will they be alright ? ».
« Well it is just a bath after all, but then again it’s not my tub ».
« Shouldn’t you go in after them ».
« Oh no I had my bath this morning, thank you ».
« Well if you won’t, I will. Woah ».
« Off we go ».

Some people like to dive right in.
Can you imagine that ?
And flap about in bathtub gin.
Can you imagine that ?

Doggies paddling twenty leagues below.
Might seem real but we know it’s not so.
To cook without a recipe.
Can you imagine that ?
And heaven knows what lives within that pot.
Some pirates follow treasure maps.
And wear a silly hat.
They search the world for buried gold.
They won’t grow up and don’t grow old.
Can you imagine that ?

« Be sure to scrub behind your ears ».

Some answer when adventure calls.
Can you imagine that ?
And sail straight over waterfalls.
Can you imagine that ?

They see living as it’s own reward.
We rock the boat then.
Some people look out on the sea.
And see a brand new day.
Their spirit lifts them high above the blue.

Yet some others wear an anchor.
And they sink in seconds flat.
So, perhaps we’ve learned when day is done.
Some stuff and nonsense could be fun.
Can you imagine that ?
