[CHARLIE: ]
I never thought this day would be
Anything but catastrophe!
But suddenly I begin to see
A bit of good luck for me
'Cus I've got a golden ticket
I've got a golden twinkle in my eye

Grandpa Joe
How'd'ya know?
That I'd be coming home today
With something good, something gold
Something special, that I can hold
Grandpa Joe
Just as you planned
The final golden ticket's in my hand!

[CHARLIE, spoken: ] Grandpa Joe!

[MRS BUCKET, spoken: ] Joe! Are you alright?

[GRANDMA, spoken: ] He's white as a sheet!

[MRS BUCKET, spoken: ] He can't speak!

[CHARLIE, spoken: ] Grandpa Joe! Say something!

[GRANDPA JOE: ]
Charlie, you and I
We made something out of nothing
You and me, Charlie
We saw things that weren't there
Charlie, you and I
Wondered how but never why
Yes, me and you, Charlie
Charlie, you and I

[MRS BUCKET, spoken: ] Wait a minute, Joe. This ticket says, to go on the tour,
Charlie has to be accompanied by a responsible adult.

[GRANDPA JOE, spoken: ] So?

[MRS BUCKET, spoken: ] Well, I can't go with him. If I don't turn up for work,
Mrs Walinsky is sure to fire me, and I can't afford to lose my job.

[GRANDPA JOE, spoken: ] I'll take him!

[MRS BUCKET, spoken: ] But, Joe, you can't walk.

[GRANDPA JOE, spoken: ] Couldn't walk! But that was before my call to arms!
This is all the miracle my old legs needed.

[GRANDPA JOE: ]
I never had a chance to shine
Never a happy song to sing
But suddenly half the world is mine
What an amazing thing!
'Cus I've got a golden ticket
I've got a golden sun up in my sky

I never thought I'd see the day
When I would face the world and say "Good morning!"
Look at the sun!

I never thought that I would be
Slapping the lap of luxury
'Cus they'd have said

[GRANDPARENTS: ]
"It shouldn't be done!"

[GRANDPA JOE, spoken: ] Bring me my jacket!

[CHARLIE: ]
But it can be done!

[GRANDPA JOE, spoken: ] And my pants.

[GRANDPA JOE: ]
I never dreamed
That I would climb
Over the moon in ecstasy
But nevertheless, it's there that I'm
Shortly about to be

[CHARLIE + GRANDPA JOE: ]
'Cus we've got a golden ticket!

[GRANDPARENTS: ]
We've got a golden ticket!

[CHARLIE + GRANDPA JOE: ]
We've got a golden chance to make our way!
And with a golden ticket, it's a golden day!

[GRANDPARENTS: ]
We never thought we'd see the day
When we would face the world and say "Good morning!"
Look at the sun!

[GRANDPA JOE: ]
I never thought that I would be
Dancing about for all to see
'Cus they all thought I was better off dead
But I got out of bed!

[CHARLIE + GRANDPA JOE: ]
We'd never dreamed that we'd appear
Over the moon in ecstasy
But nevertheless, it's there that we're
Shortly about to be
'Cus we've got a golden ticket!

[MRS BUCKET, spoken: ] Oh, Charlie, your father would be so proud!

[CHARLIE + GRANDPA JOE: ]
We've got a golden chance to make our way!

[All:]
And with a golden ticket, it's a golden day!
