MARY POPPINS (Written by: Richard M. Sherman / Robert B. Sherman) Dick Van Dyke (Bert), Julie Andrews (Mary Poppins), Karen Dotrice (Jane Banks) Chim Chim Cher-ee (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 { 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 (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 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 In ev'ry job that must be done There is an element of fun You find the fun and snap!

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 ***** Stay Awake 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 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!

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!
