Dunderklumpen's Song from a wonderful film with a lot of heart and a nice message.
Here's my script transcription from the original english dub.
You! Who are you are you anyway?
Who who who who who, who are you?
The dummy thinks that he is santa claus
and we are the Christmas gifts he carries in his sack.
Lucky child who gets me.
I want ice cream, I want ice cream!
I want some I want some I want some!
Ice cream in the woods!
What an experience!
This could be dangerous!
What if he's after, my pants?
Without my sensational pants, I'm nobody!
I know just where we are!
150 degrees by northwest
Or the other way around!
I put this thermometer in my mouth
And I feel my pulse and its 2 million degrees
And THAT'S how I can tell
That I am NUTS!
And who are you?
You must be nuts to carry us.. huh.
Hahahaha, you are a funny one.
You really are.
Who am I then?
I tell you who I am, I'll tell you..
I am Dunderklumpen
From Mt. Dunderklumpen
As nice as apple pie
Never hurt a fly
Never did know why
I was so lonesome
And when I was alone I would try and cheer myself with music.
Looked for songs to hum when
No one came around
Always played a clown
Now with friends I've found
I can't get lonesome
Why have I brought you here?
Because I wanted to have some friends?
Listen, may I dance with you Lionel?
And may I dance with you Doll?
First tell me who are you?
What did you do all your life
when you were all alone and lonesome?
Well I'll tell you, but first I'll have to have an orchestra.
You Pelenulot can play the harmonica.
And you doll, you can play the spider web.
And the Dummy can play the nails and the hammer
And you Lionel can play the saw
Bravo Lionel! Bravo!
And I can play the conductor and dance!
1 2 3 4
I'm 42 years old
but I can think back to when I was two
or 10 years old, or 32, its simple!
Understand? No? Well..
What I mean is
I'm still everybody who I once was.
There were times when I felt 1 year old
Ao I go like this, hmm hmmm.
And other times I giggle
Just as though I were 5 years old
And sometimes I can whistle
The way a 3 year old tries to whistle.
And there are times that I can break a branch
Like a 30 year old!
Oh and times I shoot a slingshot
but I aim it like a 10 year old!
And I shout take cover, take cover!
Just like a 40 year old.
And then I can play with a teddy bear
And FIGHT with one as WELL
Do you understand it now?
Do you? I mean, I'm still everybody I once was.
That's what it was like when i was all alone and lonesome
And I played by myself.
The 5 year old has remained in the 42 year old.
Yes, I was 42 different people
1 for every year that I lived
Because i was so lonesome, but
But now I have all of you
I'll never again be lonesome.
Sing with Dunderklumpen
Shake your happy rump and
Play an instrument
Dance until you're spent
To your heart's content
When you're in a slumpin'
Play with Dunderklumpen
Basket way to sun (?)
Foolish ears are done
When you're having fun
