The most random song request ever! What is this song??

Right i have these lyrics to a song that i have been trying to search for a name of...

Way back when we had our first top loader videostar VCR we also got a hookie copy of E.T with it...

When i was a kid after ET had finished there was an old episode of Rainbow on it that had been partially taped over.

It was as follows:

George the pink shy hippo went into a daydream and this happened...

he was wearing a top hat and holding a cane and started to sing this song and the lyrics went as follows:

"In my dreams i'm never shyyyy!... I can do anything, if i really try... Shoo ba ba doop shoo woo woo wahh wahh" etc...

Anyone know the name of the song or even better if anyone has a link to that particular clip of rainbow it would possibly be the best childhood memory ever re-lived...

And no i'm not smoking crack

Are you sure the writers didn't just make it up for that episode? They don't sound like the most complex lyrics ever...

i thought that but the song just seemed really familiar!.. like it belonged in an old musical or something... Like Fred Astaire sort of...

Thats why i think the Top Hat and Cane came into play!?...

Almost certainly written for the show. It will simply have been 'in the style of'.
