"Til You Try Out Something New" is a song from the Johnny and the Sprites episode "A Sprites Snow Day." It is about the sprites trying to find a help to help Johnny's friend Gwen travel through the winter snow so that she can be one of Santa's helpers. Their ideas don't work at first, but they find that by continuing to brainstorm that they can combine elements from all of their ideas into something that will work. The song is performed by Leslie Carrara as Ginger, Tim Lagasse as Basil and Carmen Osbahr as Lily, with spoken parts from John Tartaglia as Johnny, Natalie Venetia Belcon as Gwen and Heather Asch as Root. The song's title and lyrics reference a phrase that Gwen often states on the series was said by her aunt, that "You never know what you can do until you try out something new."

Lyrics

Ginger:
First we'll take this stick
And stick it into the ground
Then we'll take this rope and wrap it up all around
Then we'll pull it back
And shoot her into the sky
Then she'll flap her wings
And we can watch her fly

Basil:
That won't work

Ginger:
Yes, it will

Basil:
No, it won't

Ginger:
Yes, it will

Basil:
You're forgetting some important things

Ginger:
Like what?

Basil:
Like humans don't have wings

Ginger:
Oh, that's true.

Lily:
But you never know what you can do
Until you try out something new

Ginger:
Hey, Lily's right.

Ginger and Lily:
You never know what you can do
Until you try out something new

Lily:
A little problem comes up
So you develop a plan

Ginger:
And someone says that you can't
When you're sure that you can

Ginger, Lily and Basil:
You never know what you can do
Until you try out something new


Johnny:
Hey, you guys. Hey. Here's some hot chocolate to keep you warm. And a blanket, too.

Ginger:
Hot chocolate?!

Ginger and Lily:
Thank you, Johnny!

Gwen:
Johnny, what's going on out there?

Johnny:
Uh, nothing. You wanna play checkers?

Gwen:
Sure.

Lily:
Uh! You know... that blanket is giving me a great idea. Ha!


We'll take this blanket and twine
And tie it closed with a twig
We'll fill it with hot air
From my hot chocolate mug
The blanket starts to fill up
Cross your fingers 'cause soon
She'll be flying home in her hot chocolate air balloon

Basil:
That won't work

Lily:
Yes, it will

Basil:
No, it won't

Lily:
Yes, it will

Basil:
I'm afraid that won't work out at all

Lily:
And why not?

Basil:
Because she's too big
And that balloon's too small

Lily:
Oh, good point.

Ginger:
But you never know what you can do
Until you try out something new

Basil:
Yeah. That's right.

Ginger and Basil:
You never know what you can do
Until you try out something new

Basil:
A little problem comes up
You give it all that you've got

Ginger:
And people say that you're wrong
But you're certain you're not

Ginger and Basil:
You never know what you can do
Until you try out something new


Lily:
Adios, fuzzie!

Basil:
Wait. Remember when Gwen said she need something so she could walk on the snow?

Ginger:
Yeah.

Basil:
I have an idea.

Ginger:
Hmm? Wai--

Johnny:
Hmm. Ooh, ha ha. Uh, good move.

Gwen:
Go me. Go me. Go me.

Johnny:
Hey, what's up? What's up?

Basil:
Johnny, do you still have those rackets we played with last summer?

Johnny:
Uh, yeah.

Basil:
Can we have them?

Johnny:
Sure. Yeah. Okay.

Gwen:
Your move, Johnny.

Johnny:
Yeah, coming. One second.


Basil:
We'll take these rackets here
And then we'll use Lily's twine
To tie them to Gwen's feet

Lily:
Snowshoes!

Ginger:
That'll work fine!

Basil:
So she won't fall
We'll give her Ginger's stick

Ginger:
And Seymour's snacks, that should do the trick

Lily:
That'll work

Ginger:
It should work

Lily:
It'll work

Basil:
It would work

Ginger:
You used my stick

Lily:
And you used my twine

Basil:
That's right
Your ideas all helped out mine

Ginger, Basil and Lily:
Ya'ay!

You never know what you can do
Until you try out something new

Basil:
That's what it's all about.

Ginger, Lily and Basil:
You never know what you can do
Until you try out something new

Ginger:
And we all helped out.

Ginger, Lily and Basil:
You never know what you can do
Until you try out something new

Root:
You never know.

Ginger, Lily and Basil:
You never know what you can do

Basil:
What you can do

Lily:
What you can do

Ginger:
What you can do

Ginger, Lily and Basil:
Till you try out something new.
