Lyrics

There's no earthly way of knowing,
Which direction we are going,
There's no knowing where we're rowing,
Or which way the river's flowing,

It really is a nice little rhyme, creepy as hell (espesially in the 70's when the movie came out) but that was the intent. Gene Wilder just rules.

James - more like Wonka was in this, rather than vice-versa.

Asmodeus - Keep in mind, i'm speaking out of my a** here, but i dont really believe that his not having children or marrying brands him a nutcase. eccentric in popular culture, but far from a nutcase.

that said, he was still raving mad. your conclusions i wholehearted l y agree with, just not your assumptions.

either way, good song. ^_^

Dahl clearly set Wonka as a secluded nutcase, that never married and never had children. The factory and the Oompa Loompa were his life. He was afraid that he going insane and knew and couldn't do anything about it. Hence the need to find an 'heir' to pass on the legacy to and not his ever increasing insanity. Once Bucket became his choice and Charlie accepted. His insanity subsided. Now he had an 'heir' and he became happy to pass on his secrets. The secrets that were driving him crazy.

Listening to this song is a glimpse into insanity.

the riverboat scene - if you've only see the movie on TV, this will probably be cut from the version of the film. It was very "vivid" and tv censors usually take it out to not offend.

I've heard many theories on the boat ride meaning but it certainly proves, to me, that Wonka is actually quite insane and not just playing insane for the guests.
