If Your Father Were Here Lyrics

Broadway 2017
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the Musical - If Your Father Were Here Lyrics


"If Your Father Were Here" is a song performed by Emily Padgett (Mrs. Bucket).

[Mrs Bucket, spoken:] Come on, Charlie! Don't you wanna make a wish?
[Charlie, spoken:] I only had one wish.
[Mrs Bucket, spoken:] Oh, Charlie.

[Mrs Bucket]
If your father were here
He would say, "That one's Mars."
He would hang you the moon and then he'd bottle the stars
I would say, "Brush your teeth, is that dirt behind your ear?"
But you'd be dreaming if your father were here

If your father were here
You would not be in bed
You'd be acting out the stories from the books that you've read
He'd be walking the plank of Charlie Bucket, Buccaneer
You'd be sailing if your father were here

[+Grandparents]
And if wishes were horses, we could gallop away
And if cabbages were watches, I would know the time all day

Ah, but all we can we can offer you are dreams in every size
So close your eyes, Charlie Bucket, close your eyes

If your father were here
He would banish the cold
I can still feel his laughter and the hand I would hold
As I'm watching you grow
Inch by inch by inch by year

I would thank him if your father were here

[Mrs Bucket, spoken:] Well if you won't make a wish, Charlie, then I'll make one for you.

[Thanks to Megan Livermore for lyrics]
