Song lyrics to Beautiful Things, Written by Leslie Bricusse, Performed by Anthony Newley and Samantha Eggar with vocal by Diana Lee in Doctor Dolittle

Emma, I can’t explain what it is that he is
But he is what he is for a very good reason
I can’t explain why he does what he does
But he does what he does cause his heart is pure –
Of that much, I’m sure.

I’m sure from the way he spoke the other day
He lives in a world of fantasy
And that is a world I plan to see
Fantasy, can’t you see ?

The world is full of beautiful things
Butterfly wings, fairy tale kings
And each new day undoubtedly brings
Still more beautiful things

The world abounds with many delights
Magical sights, fanciful flights
And those who dream on beautiful nights
Dream of beautiful things

Beautiful days for sunshine lazin’
Beautiful skies and shores
Beautiful days when i can gaze
In beautiful eyes – like yours

Our lives tick by like pendulum swings
Poor little things, puppets on strings
Life is full of beautiful things
Beautiful people too
Beautiful people
Like you.
