Chorus:
Chim - chim - in - ey,  Chim chim - in - ey,  Chim Chim Cher - ee!
A sweep is as luck - y as luck - y can be.
Chim - chim - in - ey,  Chim chim - in - ey,  Chim Chim Cher - oo!
Good luck will rub off when I shakes 'ands with you.
Or blow me a kiss and that's luck - y too.
(Instrumental)

Now, as the lad - der of life as been strung,
You may think a sweep's on the bot - tom - most rung.
Though I spends me time in the ash - es and smoke,
In this 'ole wide world there's no 'ap - pi - er bloke.
