Chilly Down is definitely the craziest and most nonsensical song in the film.  It’s significance eludes me but it is striking that it comes at Sarah’s most vulnerable point in the movie.  She is alone because she’s just lost Ludo and she is running out of time.  The Firey Gang leaps out of the woods to cheer her up, to “chilly” her down, if you will.  Needless to say, it doesn’t work and she ends up being rescued by Hoggle.  This song makes no sense, but it sure makes you want to just strut your nasty stuff!

Chilly down features the vocals of Charles Augins, Danny John-Jules, Kevin Clash, and Richard Bodkin. Danny John-Jules is perhaps best known as “Cat,” from the English sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf!

Good times, bad food


Don’t have no problems…

No problems…

Ain’t got no suitcase…

No suitcase…

Ain’t got no clothes to worry about…

Ain’t got no real estate…

Or jewelry or gold mines to hang me up…

I just throw in my hand…

Throw in his hand…

With the chilliest bunch in the land…

They don’t look like much…

But they’re sure chilly chilly…

They’re positively glow glow huh!

Chilly down with fire…

Think small with fire!

Don’t lose your head…

When things get wild…

Chilly down, Chilly down with fire.

Hey, I’m a wild child!

Walk tall with fire…

Whoo! Walk tall!

Good times, Bad food.

Roll ‘em.

Snake Eyes!

So when things get too rough

Your skin is dragging on the ground

And even down looks up

Down look up

Bad luck

We can show you a good time

Show you a good time

And we don’t charge nothin’

Nothin’ at all

Just strut your nasty stuff

Wiggle in the middle, yeah

Get down talking, by god

Chilly down with

Think small with fire

Bad Hep with fire

Hey listen up!

When your things get fire, chilly down, chilly down

With fire

Shake your pretty little head.

Tap your pretty little feet.

Good times, bad food.

Come on, come on.
