chuck mccann – one little spark lyrics
one little spark of inspiration, is at the heart of all creation
right at the start of everything that’s new, one little spark lights up for you.”
oh, h-llo there
so glad you could come along
i am the dreamfinder. (laughs) musical notes!
what delightful melodies those will make
i love these flights of fancy
searching the universe for sounds, colors, ideas–anything that sparks the imagination!
that’s a good one. (laughs) everything that i collect can inspire amazing and marvelous new ideas
and you never know what kind of figment you may come up with. (laughs) here’s my favorite!
two tiny wings, eyes big and yellow
h-rns of a steer, but a loveable fellow
from head to tail, he’s royal purple pigment
and there — voila! — you’ve got a figment!”
a figment of imagination! (laughs) dreamfinder!
i’m just great!
i’ll throw in a dash of childish delight. (laughs) look, figment!
some new friends have joined us
can they imagine, too?
imagination is something that belongs to all of us
you mean, everyone can think up new things? (laughs) that’s right, figment
and every sparkling idea can lead to even more
so many times, we’re stumbling in the dark, and then — eureka! — ‘what a spark!”
h-h-how are we going to use lightning?
we can combine it with ghostly shivers on a stormy night
and turn it into a tale of fright!
oh, oh, look, look!
i’ll use that to paint with
now you’ve got it
wow, wow wow!
numbers, letters, papers for writing
costumes, make-up, stages for lighting
what about science?
we’ll need electron beams and crystal prisms
gyroscopes and magnetisms…
hold on, figment
the idea bag is full
let’s start making new things
first, we must store these ideas with the others in the dreamport
are we almost there?
oh, the dreamport is never far away when you use your imagination
come on everybody, let’s go!
we all have sparks, imaginations
that’s how our minds create creations
right at the start of everything that’s new
one little spark lights up for you.”
a dream can be a dream come true, with just that spark in me and you.”
