...I love this song.  
I only just saw that trailer yesterday and my mommy is already SICK TO DEATH of my singing the theme song.

However, I'm having trouble figuring out the words for certain parts of it. Can anyone help?

Willy Wonka! Willy Wonka!
The amazing chocolatier!
Willy Wonka! Willy Wonka!
Everybody give a cheer
He's modest, clever, and so smart
He barely ______________
with so much generosity
There is no word to contain him
to contain him
to contain him...
Willy Wonka! Willy Wonka!
He's a genius who can still _____________
A magician and a chocolate wiz
"Chewing gum is really gross
Chewing gum I hate the most"
Willy Wonka! Willy Wonka!
Here he is!


...also, please correct me if I wrote something down wrong.

i can't tell if i'm going to love the movie or totally despise it...
how can you recreate the original and be BETTER?
especially when gene wilder played willy wonka...so awesome
though at least they got the title right this time!

How can you recreate the original and Better?

By not recreating the original, of course. :)

Instead, we're going to have a Burtonian twist on the classic book, totally independant of 'Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,' but hopefully equally good. ^_^

Yeah. They aren't recreating it. The person who wrote the script had actually never seen the original movie, and wrote the script entirely based on the book. He also said it was considerably less dark than the original movie staring Gene Wilder.

hi, i just stumbled upon your lj because i was searching for info on the new Willy Wonka movie. I just wanted to let you know that the line is

HE'S A GENIUS WHO JUST CAN'T BE BEAT.

Also, the book version is much darker than the Gene Wilder movie, and although the original movie is fantastic, this movie whould be more true to the book, how Dahl would have wanted it.
