Charlie, You & I Lyrics

Broadway 2017
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the Musical - Charlie, You & I Lyrics


"Charlie, You & I" is a song performed by John Rubinstein (Grandpa Joe).

[Charlie, spoken:] Please Grandpa Joe! Please! You know what sort of story I want.
[Grandpa Joe, spoken:] Alright Charlie. But, shh, we mustn't wake up your other grandparents.

[Grandpa Joe:]
I'm an old, old man
With a tongue that can
Tell a different tale for every year
But when I ask this boy
To say which story he'd enjoy
[+Charlie] Willy Wonka!
Is all I ever hear

I have fought world wars
Cycled ten grand tours
From the shores of Wales to Tripoli
But when I ask this tot
To choose one story from the lot
[+Charlie] Willy Wonka!
Is what it's bound to be
'Cause Charlie Bucket's an awful lot like me

Charlie, you an' I
We make something out of nothing
Me an' you, Charlie,
We see things that aren't there

Charlie, you an' I
Wonder how but never why
It's me an' you, Charlie
Charlie, you and I

[Thanks to Megan Livermore for lyrics]
