WILLY WONKA:
Won't you help me please
I'm afraid that I might fall
For my eyes and knees,have grown frail behind this wall
Let me come to you,though it appears I've lost my pep
But as this ancient relic read
In the tao of Ching it said
A journey of a thousand miles
Begins with just one step

Beyond this door's a factory
Begat from just a bean
Beyond this door
Surprises in store
But it must be believed to be seen

Beyond this door's invention
Where mind meets with machine
Beyond this gate
Astonishment waits
But it must be believed to be seen

No magic spells or potions
Forswear Legerdemain
My kingdom's created from notions
All swirling inside of my brain

Beyond this door's a banquet
Of Wonka made cuisine
A lucky few
Will get to pass through
But it must be believed to be seen

Beyond this door is music
Come dance betwixt and between
Beyond this waltz
Is a world without faults
But it must be believed to be seen

Beyond this door's a puzzle
You'll find out what I mean
Beyond this gate
Is a world I create
But it must be believed to be seen

Despite the man seen at these doors
My childhood home was bland like yours
But I knew how to look to find
A world that wasn't color-blind
Let's hope that you're a bit like me
As you walk through my factory
For in the end there's quite a prize
If you can see with more than eyes

Your life's about to change now
So don't get left behind
Do things appear quite strange now?
Imagine the wonders you'll find!

Beyond this door is chocolate
So tasty it's obscene
So follow me
And I guarantee
That this world I conceived (world I conceived)
And all I've achieved (all I've achieved)
It must be believed (must be believed)
To be seen

[spoken:]

Do come in!
