"What a Surprise!" is a song from the Johnny and the Sprites episode "Root's Dadoots." It is performed by John Tartaglia as Johnny and Natalie Venetia Belcon as Johnny's friend Gwen. It is about how sometimes things that seem like a bad thing can end up leading to a wonderful surprise. It is featured as track 5 on the Johnny and the Sprites music album. The album version includes an extra verse not featured on the television show. Additionally, the character of Root can be heard "dadooting" throughout the song on the television version, while this is absent in the album presentation.

Lyrics

Johnny

Once, long ago, on a warm summer day
I was writing a song
As the sky turned to gray
The rainclouds came and the rain wasn't far behind
Then sun appeared and the sun and the rain combined

What a surprise
There was a rainbow that stretched out so long
What a surprise
It was so beautiful
I finished writing my song
The rainbow was inspiration from the skies
What a surprise
What a surprise
What a wonderful surprise

Gwen

Once I was gardening
And pulling up weeds
When I was done
I decided that I'd plant some seeds

Johnny

Some Brussels sprouts and carrots and honeydew

Gwen

But then something happened when all those little plants grew

Johnny and Gwen

What a surprise

Johnny

Daisies and sunflowers and a lone buttercup

Johnny and Gwen

What a surprise

Johnny

I must have gotten my seeds all mixed up


(Following portion on Johnny and the Sprites album only...)


Johnny and Gwen

But their blooms were so pretty
I couldn't believe my eyes

Johnny

What a surprise

Gwen

What a surprise

Johnny and Gwen

What a wonderful surprise

Johnny

There are surprise endings
Surprise guests
Surprise parties, too
Surprises, when they're really great
Can make your dreams come true
Make your dreams come true

Johnny and Gwen

What a surprise
(Both scat on "do")

Gwen

Do, do, song!

(end album only portion)


Johnny

Sometimes what you don't expect is what truly satisfies
What a surprise
What a surprise

Gwen

What a surprise

Johnny

What a surprise

Gwen

What a surprise

Johnny and Gwen

What a surpri-i-i-i-i-i-i-se

Johnny

What a wonderful surprise

Gwen

What a surpri-i-i-i-i-se!
