Creepy Wonka

Most have seen the movie others have read the book but a certain part of Willy Wonka, or Charlie or whoever's chocolate factory it was, always rang well within my mind. That song being one that was actually in both the book and the movie and it is the "Tunnel Song", as it has no real name that I could find.

Here is it's lyrics and the scene cut from the first movie, as it sis not in the second. It is one of my favorites, hope you enjoy.

There's no earthly way of knowing,
Which direction we are going!
There's no knowing where we're rowing,
Or which way they river's flowing!
Is it raining? Is it snowing?
Is a hurricane a-blowing?
Bah! Not a speck of light is showing,
So the danger must be growing,
Are the fires of hell a-blowing?
Is the grizzly reaper mowing?
Yes! The danger must be growing,
For the rowers keep on rowing,
And they're certainly not showing,
Any signs that they are slowing.

The older version is always one of my favorites.

This was one of the most memorable scenes ever if you watched it as a kid, all the silly, carefree gorging on candy landscape suddenly followed by freaky pictures of snakes and Wonka screaming maniacally...

I had watched it as a kid and I could not agree with you more!
