Singing & Signing “Pure Imagination”

Here I am singing and signing the song “Pure Imagination” from the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, one of my favorite songs since I was a little kid.

Here I am singing and signing the song “Pure Imagination” from the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, one of my favorite songs since I was a little kid.

And here are the lyrics:

Come with me / and you’ll be / in a world of pure imagination / Take a look / and you’ll see / into your imagination

We’ll begin / with a spin / traveling in a world of my creation / What we’ll see / will defy / explanation

If you want to view paradise / simply look around and view it / anything you want to, do it / want to change the world? / there’s nothing to it

There is no / life I know / to compare with pure imagination / living there / you’ll be free / if you truly wish to be

  1. What an awesome expressive job well done. I have saved this as a bookmark and look forward to signing and singing it with fourth graders this September. You have a lot of talent. Your signing is exquisite and you sing from the heart-it shows. Keep inspiring!

  2. That was amusing🙂 I’d definitely like to see more videos like that.

    Quick question: why don’t you have your email posted on your site? I wanted to email you a question (nothing important though, so if you’re too busy that’s fine), but it didn’t seem to be listed anywhere.

  3. Jenna, the quick answer is: too much spam. I tried adding an “e-mail form” to my blog, but my e-mail address was somehow discovered by a lot of spammers and all I got was spam rather than real letters from readers like you. I have your e-mail address now that you’ve left your comment, though, so I’ll write you and you can send me your question.

  4. How nice this was. As a late-deafened person, I enjoyed this muchly. I recall the “Pure Imagination” song sang by Gene Wilder in the Willy Wonka movie when I was a kid (still an all-time favorite!). I remember the tune and seeing the lyrics signed and written helped bring it all back. I was also involved in choir before I became deaf, so I also appreciated your articulate ennunciation as you sang. Lip-reading you and following your ASL was very easy. I’m a rare bird. I can appreciate your rendition. Nice job signing.🙂
