Paroles de la chanson turning turtle par mary poppins
"turning turtle? what exactly does that mean?"

"it means my whole world goes flippity flop like a turtle on its back. and i don't know my up from my down, my east from my west, my topsy from my bottomsy"

If you bring something broken on a thursday

I'll make new, with my glue, pins and thread

But you bring whatever broken on a friday

I'll mend and then spend the day in bed

Children, satur, sunday, mondays are just everything is fun days

But in the second week, i wear a frown

For, i know that after tuesday comes the topsy get's bad news day

It's the dreaded second wednesday

When from 9 to noon, my life turns upside down

If fast is slow, low is high, stop is go and that is why

Every second wednesday is a hurdle

From 8 to 9, all is well

Then i roll over on my shell

And all because the world is turning turtle

Day is night, dog is cat, black is white, thin is fat!

That is why i'm loosening up my gurtle

I cannot help this charming troop

Don't lock me, cause i'm in this soup

And why? because the world is turning turtle

How, always me, i'm as opposite as i can be

I long for thursday, when the world is drab

When will it cease! now my life resembles war and peace

That tolstoy certainly had the gift but yeah, i couldn't get through it

Bottom's top, ying is yang, (?)

Tuesday nights, my blood begins to curdle

East is west, in is out, and that is why i need to shout

"oh no!" the world is turning turtle

Oh, if you had come some other morn'

You wouldn't have found me so forlorn

But, since the day that i was born

Second wednesday is on the fritz!

I could mend this to save my soul

If this keeps up, i'll dig a hole

You say life's a cherry bowl

But wednesday's full of pits!

Tell us, can you fix this drum?


Well, today it's looking glum

Can you mend this crack and broken string?

Perhaps if you all lend a hand

Our fingers are at your command!

A broken song, but still can sing

Let's do the turtle swing!

Oh, woe is me. now i'm on my head

How can that be?

Well you say woe, but i say lucky you

Lucky, me?

Yes. here on your head a is far behind in letters, i've said

It's good to get a different point of view

"you see, when the world turns upside down, the best thing is turn right along with it"

"i do see! from down here, things seem right side up!"

"i wouldn't mind seeing things from that angle"

"sounds like fun!"

"can we?"

"very well. flippity flop"

Near is far and here is there

Turtles turning everywhere

Things are getting clear!

Then knock on wood my dear

When you change the view from where you stood

The things you view will change for good

"i never thought of things that way"

"she never thought of things that way"

"now wednesdays are my favourite days!"

"now wednesdays are her favourite days!"

"cause that's the day, i'm quite contrary. i'm now, thanks to cousin mary, i have changed. to be exact, i love the fact"

The world is turning turtle, turtle, turtle
