The simplest wooden cabin's made

Of jasper, emerald and jade.

A table of plain, humdrum pine

Suddenly seems crystalline.

And all the simple caken chairs

Sparkle like huge solitaires.

Lift the veil, shake off the mist'

Mere brick and mortar's amethyst.

I am the light that makes men see

The radiance in reality.

Fancy, just one sparkling flash'

And I'm freed from a life

of smoke and ash!

Mytyl-yl-yl. Tyltyl-yl-yl.

Water flowing

At her own sweet will.

You, sir, have a certain flare, But

keep your distance, stay right there.


Now watch!

With phewman form

And phewman sound

Finally finished

With loafing around!

Mytylk. Tytylk.

The silky soul

of spilt...


How do you do. Bread is the name.

Man's oldest friend.

Man's oldest friend and most

faithful companion.

Without me, he'd be just a lump of


Without me, he'd be just a bag of


I'm man's oldest friend.

Water's kind to human beings.

What about those you drown?

Don't be ridiculous!

Tut, tut, tut...

And now, my dear child, this one's

for you. Yup!

Now I'm here, I'll make you all

Sweet and kind and cordial.

You must be Sugar.

Indeed I am, sweet child.

Have a candy.


Here, Tylo, have some candy.


My dear little master!

At last we can talk'

at last!


I'd bark and wag my tail'

but you never really understood.

I felt so miserable.

You can't even imagine.

But now I'm so happy!

So very happy!

Do you want me to stand on my front

paws, or dance on my hind legs?

Do stop making such a fool

of yourself, Tylo.

Good evening, everybody!

It's the soul of Tylette.

Go and kiss her.

I want to kiss everyone!

Oh, what fun we're going to have!

I must kiss you again, Little Master.

What are you doing up at this time?

Why aren't you in bed?
