"Give It a Try" is a song from the Johnny and the Sprites episode "This is Your Life, Johnny!" It is performed by John Tartaglia as Johnny and Leslie Carrara as Ginger, along with the "birdies," which are actually fuzzies dressed as birds. It is about trying something new, even when it may seem scary or different. It is featured as track 9 on the Johnny and the Sprites music album.

Lyrics

Johnny

Once upon a time there was a Sprite named Blue
And before him stood a mountain high

Birdies

Mountain high

Johnny

He heard the mountaintop had quite an excellent view
Of the different kinds of birdies that fly

Birdies

Me, oh my

Johnny

Though to watch birdies fly was a thing he adored
He'd never climbed up anything so high before
He wanted to climb, but he ran off instead
Till a little voice inside him said

Ginger

What?

Johnny and Birdies

Give it a try
Give it a try
Trying is important
And he's telling you why

Johnny

You'd be amazed how far you go

Johnny and Birdies

But if you don't take a chance, my friend, you'll never know

Johnny

Once upon a time there was a Sprite named Sue
And her neighbor had her over for tea

Birdies

Have some tea

Johnny

And for a little snack
She made spaghetti stew
From her grandma's family recipe

Birdies

Recipe

Johnny

Though she loved having tea
And was having a ball
She'd never tasted something like spaghetti stew at all
She picked up her fork, then screamed and ran away
Till a little voice began to say

Ginger

What?

Johnny and Birdies

Give it a try
Give it a try
Take the fear inside you and just kiss it goodbye
Tasting new things is what life's all about
But if you don't take a bite, my friend, you'll never find out

Johnny

You can climb a mountain

Birdies

Mountain, mountain

Johnny

You can eat spaghetti

Birdies

Mmm, s'g'hetti

Ginger

Act like Johnny's mommy?

Birdies

Mommy, mommy

Johnny

Ginger, are you ready?

Ginger

Yeah, yeah, yeah!
I'm gonna give it a try
Give it a try
Trying is important

Johnny and Birdies

And she's telling you why

Johnny

If you don't take a chance
Soon that chance might be gone

Ginger

So I'll take a chance and tell you
The show must go on!

Johnny

Did you hear that, guys?

Johnny and Birdies

She's gonna give it a try

Ginger

Ready or not, world, here I come!
