"One Little Spark" was the theme song to the Journey into Imagination attraction at Epcot, written by the Sherman Brothers where it served as one of the attraction's signature songs, making it the most memorable songs in Disney Parks history. It is still used in the Epcot attraction Journey Into Imagination With Figment with altered verses sung by Figment during the ride.

An acoustic guitar cover of the song was recorded for the 2021 announcement of AdventHealth becoming the official health care provider for the Walt Disney World resort.


Lyrics

One little spark, of inspiration
Is at the heart, of all creation
Right at the start, of everything that's new
One little spark, lights up for you

Two tiny wings, eyes big and yellow
Horn of a steer, but a lovable fellow
From head to tail, he's royal purple pigment
And there, viola! You've got a Figment!

We all have sparks, imaginations
That's how our minds, create creations
For they can make, our wildest dreams come true
Those magic sparks, in me and you

Imagination! Imagination!
A dream, can be a dream come true
With just that spark, in me and you

Mix red and gold
From autumn flowers
Purple and blue
From twilight hours
Green summer hills
And rainbows play a part, ha, ha
A painter's brush, ha
A work of art

One chilling word
Like shriek or killer
Can spark the mind
To start a thriller
Add some more sparks
Like dagger, blood and gory
And then...
A mystery story

(sung by Figment and Dreamfinder as an alternating and then a repeating duet)
Some happy songs
Some snappy dances
Costumes and sets
Spoofs and romances
With laughs and tears and footlights all aglow
The sparks ignite, ha! A brand new show!

(finale verse)
Imagination! Imagination!
A dream can be a dream come true
With just that spark in me and you

We all have sparks, imaginations
That's how our minds, create creations
Oh, they can make our wildest dreams come true
Those little sparks in me and you

Imagination! Imagination!
A dream can be a dream come true
With just one spark in me and you

Figment:
For every sound your ears are hearing
A thousand thoughts can start appearing
And each of us, imagines different things
From just a sound, your mind has wings

One spark of light
Can light your fancy
Your mind sees more
Than what your eyes see
Your sense of sight can make your fancy fly
There's more to sight than meets the eye

One awful whiff can send you reeling
One lovely sniff can be appealing
Your mind can find what enters through your nose
That's how you tell a skunk is not a rose

With just a spark of inspiration
I've made my house an innovation
Imagination really clowns around
Mix downside up, and upside down

(sung by Dr. Channing and Figment together)
We all have sparks
Imaginations!
That's how our minds create creations
We set them free and oh what they can do!
Those magic sparks from me and you

Imagination! Imagination!
A dream can be a dream come true
With just that spark from me and you

Dr. Channing:
One little spark, of inspiration
Is at the heart, of all creation
Right at the start of everything that's new
One little spark lights up for you!

Imagination! Imagination!
A dream can be a dream come true
With just that spark from me and you!

(repeat until fade)

The dreams we dreamed, the hopes inside us
Ignite the path we take to guide us
And hand in hand, the future is unfurled
From just one spark a whole new world

Trivia

  • Though not sung, One Little Spark still appeared in the score for the failed Journey Into Your Imagination.
  • Two unused verses can be found in the 1994 songbook "A Souvenir Disney Songbook - Favorite Songs from Disneyland & Walt Disney World".

One little spark
One flight of fancy
Shines up the dark
So that we can see
When things look grim
And nothing's going right
One little spark
Clicks on the light

One bright idea
One right connection
Can give our lives
A new direction
So many times we're stumbling in the dark
And then, Eureka! - that little spark!
