This is the theme song for the Johnny and the Sprites. It is sung by Johnny and the Sprites at the beginning of each episode. The theme was written and composed by hit Broadway and Disney songwriter/composer Stephen Schwartz, who also penned "Brightly Shining" for the series.

When aired as shorts, only the first verse was played, and only with Johnny, Basil and Ginger, as the characters of Lily and Root had not yet been added. In the full series, a new verse was added, but the lyrics were altered for the second season to reflect the fact that Johnny was no longer the only human character who could see the Sprites.

Lyrics

Johnny:
I came to live in this house in the woods
To work on my music on my own
But somehow I feel it's a magical place
And somehow I feel I'm not alone

I was just Johnny 'till I walked through that door
But I am not just Johnny anymore...

I'm Johnny...

Basil and Ginger:
And the Sprites!

Johnny:
Did you see one?
Johnny...

Basil and Ginger:
And the Sprites!

Johnny:
Could you be one?

Johnny, Basil and Ginger:

Johnny:
I came to live in this house in the woods
To work on my music on my own

And somehow I feel I'm not alone

I'm Johnny...
