How it Works is a song from the Johnny and the Sprites episode "The Sprites and the What?!".

Lyrics

(Lily)

Under the water blue and flowing by

A little shell might catch my eye

But digging those things out can be a chore

But with my handy-dandy seashell finder, it's not a chore anymore

'Cause if I scoop

(Root)

You scoop

(Lily)

And I pull it to land, the water drains

(Root)

It drains

(Lily)

Leaving shells and sand

And I find I have a treasure from the sea

(Johnny)

It's funny how we see the same thing differently

But that's how this thing works

(Johnny and Lily)

That's how this thing works

That's how it works

(Lily)

For me

(Johnny; spoken)

That is so cool, Lily.

(both chuckling)

(Ginger)

When I go flying up into the sky

I always try to safely fly

But every now and then I bump and fall

But with this super Sprite protection helmet, my head doesn't hurt at all

I can soar

(Root)

You soar

(Ginger)

Way above the ground, but my head

(Root)

Your head

(Ginger)

Is safe and sound

And the holes keep my antennae blowing free, yeah!

(Johnny)

It's funny how we see the same thing differently

But that's how this thing works

(Ginger and Johnny)

That's how this thing works

That's how it works

(Ginger)

For me

(Johnny)

I call this thing a colander

I know that much is true

But how it works for me may not be how it works for you

(Basil)

When plants are growing, growing, what they need

Is rain and sun, not some stampede

The Fuzzies smushing everything in sight

But with my nifty new tomato shield, my veggies are all right

When the whole wide world comes a-prancing through and my plants are safe from the likes of you

(Ginger)

I can soar so high way above the ground because I know my head is safe and sound

(Lily)

You can scoop and pull it to the land and you find yourself with shells and sand

(All)

It's funny how we see the same thing differently

And that's how this thing works

That's how this thing works

That's how it works

For me

And me

And me
