Chim Chim Cher-ee


From:  Mary Poppins
Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
Performed by: Dick Van Dyke [Bert], et al.


[Bert:]
Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee!
A sweep is as lucky
As lucky can be

Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-oo!
Good luck will rub off when
I shakes 'ands with you
Or blow me a kiss
And that's lucky too

Now as the ladder of life
'As been strung
You may think a sweep's
On the bottommost rung

Though I spends me time
In the ashes and smoke
In this 'ole wide world
There's no 'appier bloke

Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee!
A sweep is as lucky
As lucky can be

Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-oo!
Good luck will rub off when
I shakes 'ands with you

[All:]
Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee!
A sweep is as lucky
As lucky can be

Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-oo!
Good luck will rub off when
I shakes 'ands with you

[Bert:]
I choose me bristles with pride
Yes, I do
A broom for the shaft
And a broom for the flume

Up where the smoke is
All billered and curled
'Tween pavement and stars
Is the chimney sweep world

When the's 'ardly no day
Nor 'ardly no night
There's things 'alf in shadow
And 'alf way in light
On the roof tops of London
Coo, what a sight!

*Next stanza is not on the soundtrack*

Though I'm covered with soot
From me 'ead to me toes
A sweep knows 'e's welcome
Wherever 'e goes

[Mary:]
Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee!
When you're with a sweep
You're in glad company

[Bert:]
No where is there
A more 'appier crew

[Both:]
Than them wot sings
"Chim chim cher-ee
Chim cher-oo!"
On the chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee
Chim cher-oo!





Feed the Birds


From:  Mary Poppins
Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
Performed by: Julie Andrews [Mary Poppins]

{ The first two stanzas may not appear in the film: }
Early each day to the steps of Saint Paul's
The little old bird woman comes.
In her own special way to the people she calls,
"Come, buy my bags full of crumbs.

Come feed the little birds, show them you care
And you'll be glad if you do.
Their young ones are hungry,
Their nests are so bare;
All it takes is tuppence from you."

Feed the birds, tuppence a bag,
Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag.
"Feed the birds," that's what she cries,
While overhead, her birds fill the skies.

All around the cathedral the saints and apostles
Look down as she sells her wares.
Although you can't see it, you know they are smiling
Each time someone shows that he cares.

Though her words are simple and few,
Listen, listen, she's calling to you:
"Feed the birds, tuppence a bag,
Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag."





Jolly Holiday


From:  Mary Poppins
Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
Performed by: Dick Van Dyke [Bert], Julie Andrews [Mary Poppins]

[Bert:]
Ain't it a glorious day?
Right as a mornin' in May
I feel like I could fly

[Mary:]
Now Bert, none of your larking about!

[Bert:]
'Ave you ever seen
The grass so green?
Or a bluer sky?

Oh, it's a jolly holiday
With Mary
Mary makes your 'eart so light

[Mary:]
You haven'y changed a bit, have you?

[Bert:]
When the day is gray
And ordinary
Mary makes the sun shine bright!

[Mary:]  Oh, honestly!

[Bert:]
Oh 'appiness is bloomin'
All around 'er
The daffodils are smilin'
At the dove
When Mary 'olds your 'and
You feel so grand
Your 'eart starts beatin'
Like a big brass band

[Mary:]  You are lightheaded!

[Bert:]  
It's a jolly holiday with Mary
No wonder that it's Mary that we love!

[Barn Animals:]
Oh, it's a jolly holiday
With Mary
Mary makes your 'eart so light
When the day is gray
And ordinary
Mary makes the sun shine bright!
Oh 'appiness is bloomin'
All around 'er
The daffodils are smilin'
At the dove
When Mary 'olds your 'and
You feel so grand
Your 'eart starts beatin'
Like a big brass band
It's a jolly holiday with Mary
No wonder that it's Mary that we love!

*Next stanza not on soundtrack*

Now then what'd be nice
We'll start with raspberry ice
And then some cakes and tea
Order what you will
There'll be no bill
It's complimentary

[Mary:]
Oh, it's a jolly holiday
With you, Bert
Gentlemen like you are few

[Bert:]
A vanishin' breed, that's me!

[Mary:]
Though your just a diamond
In the rough, Bert
Underneath your blood is blue!

[Bert:]  'Common knowledge!

[Mary:]
You'd never think of pressing
Your advantage
For bearance is the hallmark
Of your creed

[Bert:]  True!

[Mary:]
A lady needn't fear
When you are near
Your sweet gentility is crystal clear!
Oh, it's a jolly holiday with you, Bert
A jolly, jolly holiday with you!





Let's Go Fly a Kite


From:  Mary Poppins
Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman


Let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height
Let's go fly a kite
And send it soaring

Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let's go fly a kite
Let's go fly a kite!




A Spoonful of Sugar


From:  Mary Poppins
Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
Performed by: Julie Andrews [Mary Poppins]

In ev'ry job that must be done
There is an element of fun
You find the fun and snap!
The job's a game

And ev'ry task you undertake
Becomes a piece of cake
A lark! A spree!
It's very clear to me

That a...
Spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
The medicine go down-wown
The medicine go down
Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
In a most delightful way

A robin feathering his nest
Has very little time to rest
While gathering his
Bits of twine and twig

Though quite intent in his pursuit
He has a merry tune to toot
He knows a song
Will move the job along

For a...
Spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
The medicine go down-wown
The medicine go down
Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
In a most delightful way





The Perfect Nanny


From: Mary Poppins
Music: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
Lyrics: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
Performed by: Karen Dotrice [Jane Banks]

If you want this choice position
Have a cheery disposition
Rosy cheeks, no warts
Play games, all sorts

You must be kind, you must be witty
Very sweet and fairly pretty
Take us on outings, give us treats
Sing songs, bring sweets

Never be cross or cruel
Never give us castor oil or gruel
Love us as a son and daughter
And never smell of barley water

If you won't scold and dominate us
We will never give you cause to hate us
We won't hide your spectacles so you can't see
Put toads in your bed or pepper in your tea

Hurry, Nanny
Many thanks sincerely
Jane and Michael Banks




Sister Suffragette


From: Mary Poppins
Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman

We're clearly soldiers in petticoats
And dauntless crusader for women's votes
Though we adore men individually
We agree that as a group they're rather stupid

Cast of the shackles of yesterday
Shoulder to shoulder into the fray
Our daughter's daughters will adore us
And they'll sing in grateful chorus
"Well done, sister suffragette"

From Kensington to Billingsgate
One hears the restless cries
From every corner of the land
Womenkind, arise

Political equality
And equal right with men
Take heart for Mrs. Pankhurst
Has been clapped on iron again

No more the meek and mild subservients we
We're fighting for our rights militantly
Never you fear

So cast of the shackles of yesterday
Shoulder to shoulder into the fray
Our daughter's daughters will adore us
And they'll sing in grateful chorus
"Well done...well done...well done...sister suffragette

Stay Awake


From: Mary Poppins
Music: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
Lyrics: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
Performed by: Julie Andrews [Mary Poppins]

Stay awake, don't rest your head
Don't lie down upon your bed
While the moon drifts in the skies
Stay awake, don't close your eyes

Though the world is fast asleep
Though your pillow's soft and deep
You're not sleepy as you seem
Stay awake, don't nod and dream
Stay awake, don't nod and dream




Step in Time


From: Mary Poppins
Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
Performed by: Dick van Dike [Bert]

Step in time, step in time
Step in time, step in time
Never need a reason, never need a rhyme
Step in time, we step in time

Kick your knees up, step in time
Kick your knees up, step in time
Never need a reason, never need a rhyme
Kick your knees up, step in time

Round the chimney, step in time
Round the chimney, step in time
Never need a reason, never need a rhyme
Round the chimney, step in time

Flap like a birdie, step in time
Flap like a birdie, step in time
Never need a reason, never need a rhyme
Flap like a birdie, step in time

Up on the railing, step in time
Up on the railing, step in time
Never need a reason, never need a rhyme
Up on the railing step in time

Over the rooftops, step in time
Over the rooftops, step in time
Never need a reason, never need a rhyme

Step in time
Over the rooftops! Over the rooftops!

Link your elbows, step in time
Link your elbows, step in time
Link your elbows, link your elbows...

Step in time, step in time
Step in time, step in time
Never need a reason, never need a rhyme
Step in time, we step in time



Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious


From:  Mary Poppins
Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
Performed by: Julie Andrews [Mary Poppins]

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it
Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You'll always sound precocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay

Because I was afraid to speak
When I was just a lad
Me father gave me nose a tweak
And told me I was bad
But then one day I learned a word
That saved me aching nose

The biggest word you've ever heard
And this is how it goes:

Oh, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it
Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You'll always sound precocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay

He traveled all around the world
And everywhere he went
He'd use tis word and all would say:
"There goes a clever gent"

When dukes refused to pass the time of day with me
I'd say me special word
And then they'd offer a cup of tea!

Oh, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it
Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You'll always sound precocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay

You know, you can say it backwards
Which is dociousaliexpilisticfragicalirupus,
But that's going a bit to far,
Don't you think?

Indubitably!

So when the cat has got your tongue
There's no need for dismay

Here, here!
Just summon up this word
And then you've got a lot to say
But better use it carefully
Or it may change your life

Um, for example?

Yes?

One night I said it to me girl
And now me girl's my wife!
Oh, and a lovely thing she is to!

She's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
