The Roses of Success!

[Caracktacus Potts, Sr. has been entrusted with the seemingly impossible task of building a flying, floating car. Can he do it?]

Evey bursted bubble has a glory!
Each abysmal failure makes a point.
Every glowing path that goes astray
Shows you how to find
A better way.

So every time you stumble,
Never grumble!
Next time you'll bumble even less!
For up from the ashes,
Up from the ashes--
Grow the roses of success!

Grow the roses!
Grow the roses!
Grow the roses of success!
(Oh, yes!)
Grow the roses,
Those rosy roses!
From the ashes of disaster grow the roses of succcess!

{Yes, I know! But he wants it to float!}
[It will!]
For every big mistake you make,
Be grateful!
(Yeah, yeah)
That mistake you'll never make again.
(No sir!)
Every shiny dream
That fades and dies
Generates the steam
For two more tries!

Ohh, there's magic in the wake of a fiasco...

Correct!

It gives you that chance to second-guess!

Oh, yes!

Then up from the ashes!
Up from the ashes
Grow the roses of success!

Grow the roses!
Grow the roses!
Grow the roses of success!

Grow the roses!
Those rosy roses!
From the ashes of disaster
Grow the roses of success!

Disaster didn't stymie Louie Pasteur!
(No, sir!)
Edison took years tosee the light.
(Right!)
Alexander Graham knew failure well.
It took a lotta nonce to ring that Bell!

So when it gets distressing it's a blessing.
Onward and upward you must press!
Yes! Yes!
'Til up from the ashes
Up from the ashes
Grow the roses of success!

Grow the roses!
Those rosy roses!
From the ashes of disaster
Grow...
The
Roses...
Of...
Suc-cess!

Start the engine!
(Success!)
Batten the hatches!
(Success!)
Man the shrouds....
Lift the anchor!

Success!
