Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Almost Nearly Perfect Lyrics

"Almost Nearly Perfect" is a song from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the musical performed by Jack Costello.

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!
