Tramp Shuffle - Part 1

Sennett
Chaplin.
Charlie
Yes sir?
Sennett
That's funny!
Charlie
It is?
Sennett
Yes. Do that walk for me again.
Charlie
This one?
Sennett
What inspired that, boy?
Charlie
You did, sir.
Sennett
Well, i do have that effect on people, don't i?
Charlie
You do, sir, yes.
Sennett
Charlie, when i said i was gonna fire you, i was just trying to scare you.
Charlie
You did.
Sennett
And what would you call this?
Charlie
Character.
Sennett
Ah, yes, you got me there. Character.

Charlie
He's a poet. A dreamer. A wanderer. A tramp!
Sennett
A tramp? I like the sound of that. But what's his, you know?
Charlie
Motivation?
Each day he'll start
A new and unknown journey.
And in his heart
No one will see he's lonely.
He'll search the world
To find a place to call his own.
He'll never have to hide,
Though poor, he'll have his pride,
Whenever the tramp shuffles.

Sennett
And i see chaplin pictures everywhere,
People waiting in the square,
Buying tickets to see.
And you'll be talked about in magazines,
Recognized on movie screens,
Lighting up the marquee.
And the distributors will call my name,
Begging to get in the game.
What a gold mine you'll be,

Sennett (cont’d)
Oh, charlie!
With my name above you,
The world's bound to love you,
When they see the tramp shuffle.
Sennett
Action!

Sennett Charlie
And i see chaplin pictures each day he'll start
Everywhere. A new and unknown journey.
People waiting in the square, and in his heart
Buying tickets to see. No one will see he's lonely.
And you'll be talked about in he'll search the world
Magazines, to find a place to call his
Recognized on movie own.
Screens, he'll never have to hide
Lighting up the marquee. Though poor, he'll have his
Pride,
And the distributors will whenever the tramp
Call my name, shuffles.
Begging to get in the game.
What a gold mine you'll be,
Oh, charlie!
With my name above you,
The world's bound to love
You,
When they see the tramp
Shuffle.

Sennett
Cut! Perfect!

Usher
Come see charlie chaplin,
Playing here at the strand
Come see charlie chaplin,
First time in the land!
One show for a nickel,
Three shows for a dime

Usher Charlie
So come and see something funny...
Will they think i'm funny?
