"Portobello Road" is a song from Bedknobs and Broomsticks, written by the Sherman Brothers. It is sung while Miss Eglantine Price (Angela Lansbury), Professor Emelius Brown (David Tomlinson), and the children look for the Spells of Astoroth in Portobello Road.


Emelius Browne: Portobello Road, Portobello Road
Street where the riches of ages are stowed
Anything and everything a chap can unload
Is sold off the barrow in Portobello road
You’ll find what you want in the Portobello road

Street Vendor # 1: Rare alabaster?
Emelius Browne: Genuine plaster!
Street Vendor # 2: A filigreed samovar owned by the czars?
Street Vendor # 3: A pen used by Shelley?
Emelius Browne: A new Boticelli?
Street Vendor # 3: The snipper that clipped old King Edward’s cigars?

Street Vendor # 4: Waterford Crystals?
Street Vendor # 5: Napoleon’s pistols?
Street Vendor # 6: Society heirlooms with genuine gems!
Street Vendor # 7: Rembrandts! El Greco’s! Toulouse-Letrec’os!
Emelius Browne: Painted last week on the banks of the Thames!

Emelius Browne/Carrie Rawlins/Charlie Rawlins/Paul Rawlins: Portobello Road, Portobello Road!
Street where the riches of ages are stowed
Emelius Browne: Anything and everything a chap can unload
Is sold off the barrow in Portobello Road
Attractive Girls: You’ll meet all your chums in the Portobello Road

Emelius Browne: There’s pure inspiration in every creation
Clothing Vendor: No cheap imitations, not here in me store
With garments as such as was worn by a Duchess
Emelius Browne: Just once at some royal occasion of yore

Emelius Browne/Clothing Vendor: In Portobello Road, Portobello Road
The fancies and fineries of ages are showed.
Carrie Rawlins: A lady will always feel dressed a la mode
In frillies she finds in the Portobello road

Book Vendor: “Burke’s Peerage” “The Bride Book” “The Fishmonger’s Guidebook”
A Victorian novel, “The Unwanted Son”
“The History of Potting”
Emelius Browne: “The Yearbook of Yachting”
Book Vendor: The leather bound “Life of Attila the Hun.”

Chorus: Portobello Road, Portobello Road
Street where the riches of ages are stowed
Artifacts to glorify our regal abode
Are hidden in the flotsam in Portobello Road

Tokens and treasures, yesterday’s pleasures
Cheap imitations of heirlooms of old
Dented and tarnished, scarred and unvarnished
In old Portobello they’re bought and they’re sold
Paul Rawlins: You can eat like a king here in Portobello Road
