    This is a song from the comical opera, The Pirates of Penzance by Gilbert and Sullivan. I had the pleasure of seeing it live a few months ago and the guy playing the Major General sang it as fast as this guy did. Its pretty amazing.

    The fast part starts at 3:14 if you don't want to watch the entire clip.

    This song can be a great tongue twister if you just say it. Also pretty fun to adapt the words:



    Edited:


    Why am I surprised someone actually did this.

    TITLE: The Sorcerer's Song
    Lyrics


    [Sorcerer]

    Oh, my name is John Wellington Wells
    I'm a dealer in magic and spells
    In blessings and curses
    And ever-filled purses
    In prophecies, witches, and knells
    If you want a proud foe to "make tracks"
    If you'd melt a rich uncle in wax
    You've but to look in on our resident Djinn
    Number seventy, Simmery Axe

    We've a first-class assortment of magic
    And for raising a posthumous shade
    With effects that are comic or tragic
    There's no cheaper house in the trade

    Love-philtre, we've quantities of it
    And for knowledge if any one burns
    We keep an extremely small prophet, a prophet
    Who brings us unbounded returns
    For he can prophesy with a wink of his eye
    Peep with security into futurity
    Sum up your history, clear up a mystery
    Humor proclivity for a nativity
    He has answers oracular, bogies spectacular
    Tetrapods tragical, mirrors so magical
    Facts astronomical, solemn or comical
    And, if you want it, he
    Makes a reduction on taking a quantity
    Oh, if any one anything lacks
    He'll find it all ready in stacks
    If he'll only look in on the resident Djinn
    Number seventy, Simmery Axe

    He can raise you hosts of ghosts
    And that without reflectors
    And creepy things with wings
    And gaunt and grisly spectres
    He can fill you crowds of shrouds
    And horrify you vastly
    He can rack your brains with chains
    And gibberings grim and ghastly
    Then, if you plan it, he changes organity
    With an urbanity full of Satanity
    Vexing humanity with an inanity
    Fatal to vanity
    Driving your foes to the verge of insanity
    But in tautology on demonology
    'Lectro biology, mystic nosology
    Spirit philology, high class astrology
    Such is his knowledge, he
    Isn't the man to require an apology

    Oh, my name is John Wellington Wells
    I'm a dealer in magic and spells
    In blessings and curses
    And ever-filled purses
    In prophecies, witches, and knells
    If any one anything lacks
    He'll find it all ready in stacks
    If he'll only look in on the resident Djinn
    Number seventy, Simmery Axe

    Ah, yes, Gilbert and Sullivan. Great stuff.

    Let's not forget Freemans Mind when he sang it.
