Eglantine
Let us strike a bargain
You possess a gift
But I can speak the jargain
That can give your gift the needed lift

You possess the know-how
And I command the show how
Oh, how successful you could be
With me

Eglantine, Eglantine
Oh, how you shine
Your lot and my lot have got to combine
Eglantine, Eglantine
Heart to the stars
Destiny calls us
The future is ours
As the shine sells the boot
And the blossoms the fruit
All you need to succeed in your plan
Is the proper ally
Upon whom to rely
And I'm your man

For I have been accruin'
What's nicer than human:
I see things that nobody can
So I humbly suggest
You accept my behess
I'm your man

Eglantine, Eglantine
Oh, how you shine
Your lot and my lot have got to combine
Eglantine, Eglantine
Heart to the stars
Destiny calls us
The future is ours

With my expert pantomiming
The proper taste and timing
I'll introduce you in the monogram

I'll wet their appetite for you
I'll set the scene so right for you
We'll have the beggars eating out of your hand

As the words sell the tune
And the moon beams the moon
All you need to succeed in your plan
Is a champion rare
With a flourish
And a flair
And I'm your man

I have always had a bit of a knack for witchcraft
Common spells and simple charms came naturally
So when the war began
I conjured up a plan
To do my bit
In the national emergency

I enrolled in your Correspondence College of Witchcraft
And I slaved at every lesson as it came
But the spell I counted on
Is the lesson that is gone
It's disappeared,
And you're the one to blame

Your suggestions are rash
And your manner is brash
And I've no time to waste,
Mister Browne
If I am to proceed
It's that book that I need
Don't let me down

But if you'll see me through
I'll discuss it with you
Though I've no taste for playing the clown
If I meet with success
I might acquieth-

I won't let you down

Eglantine, Eglantine
Oh, how you shine
Your lot and my lot have got to combine
Eglantine, Eglantine
Heart to the stars
Destiny calls us
The future-

Mister Browne, I'm warning you-

I warned you Mister Browne,
Now where is the book?


Substitutiary Locomotion
Treguna...Mekoites...Tracorum...Satis...Dee

Substitutiary Locomotion
Mystic power that's far
Beyond the wildest notion
It's so weird,
So feared, Yet wonderful to see
Substitutiary Locomotion come to me

Treguna, Mekoites, Tracorum, Satis Dee
Treguna, Mekoites, Tracorum, Satis Dee

I don't want Locomotiary Substitution
Or remote Intransecory Convolution
Only one precise solution is the key
Substitutiary Locomotion it must be
Treguna, Mekoites, Tracorum, Satis Dee

Substitutiary Locomotion
Lovely Substitutiary Locomotion
You've made substitutiary history
With Treguna, Mekoites, and a little help from me
With Treguna, Mekoites, and Tracorum Satis Dee


Nobody's Problems
No one to miss if he's gone to long
No one to comfort if things go wrong
That's how I want it to be
Nobody's problems for me

No one who needs me to ease his pain
No one to call me his ball and chain
Nobody's problems for me
And that's how I choose it to be

No problems and strife
In this life that I lead
No tempers to humor
No hungers to feed

No one to warm when the winter's cold
No one to pamper; no hand to hold
And that's how I choose it to be
No, nobody's problems for me


A Step in the Right Direction
After all, it's a step in the right direction
It's a step in the right direction after all
After all, it's a step in the direction
It's a step the right direction after all

When the baby spider
Wants to trap a fly
Often time, the silken thread
Will come awry
Though a tangles web is all that he can claim
It's a step in the right direction all the same

All the same, it's a step in the right direction
It's a step in the right direction all the same
All the same, it's a step in the right direction
It's a step in the right direction all the same

When the little sparrow
Wants to leave the nest
First he has to put his feathers to the test
Tumbling from a treetop can't be called success
But it's a step in the right direction none the less

None the less, it's a step in the right direction
It's a step in the right direction none the less
None the less, it's a step in the right direction
It's a step in the right direction none the less

Watch the tiny totters
Inching up a hill
It may seems to you he's merely standing still
Though the steps he takes are infinitesmal
They're a step in the right direction after all

After all, it's a step in the right direction
It's a step in the right direction after all
After all, it's a step in the direction
It's a step the right direction after all
