LyricsEdit

Mary Poppins: When trying to express oneself, it's frankly quite absurd,
To leaf through lengthy lexicons to find the perfect word.

A little spontaniaty keeps conversation keen,
You need to find a way to say, precisely what you mean...

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it is something quite atrosicous!
If you say it loud enough, you'll always sound precocious,

Ensemble: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye 
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye

Mary Poppins: When Stone Age men were chatting, merely grunting would suffice.

Bert: Now if they heard this word, they might have used it once or twice!

Mrs. Corry: I'm sure Egyptian pharaohs would have grasped it in a jiff,
Then every single pyramid would bear this hieroglyph;

Oh!
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Say it and wild animals would not seem so ferocious!

Mary Poppins: Add some further flourishes, it's so ro-co-co-coscious!

Ensemble: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye

Bert: The Druids could have carved it on their mighty monoliths!

Mrs. Corry: I'm certain the ancient Greeks would have used it in their midst!

Mary Poppins: I'm sure the Roman Empire only entered the abyss,
Because those Latin scholars never had a word like this!

Ensemble: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Mary Poppins: If you say it softly the effect can be hypnoscious!

Bert: Check your breath before you speak, in case it's halitotious!

Ensemble: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye

Mary Poppins (spoken): Of course you can say it backwards, which is Suoicodilaipxecitsiligarfilacrepus!

Michael (spoken): She may be tricky, but she's bloody good!

Mary Poppins: So when the cat has got your tongue, there's no need for dismay!
Just summon up this word and then you've got a lot to say!

Bert: Pick out those eighteen consonants and sixteen vowels as well, And put
them in an order which is very hard to spell...

Mary Poppins: S-u-p-e-r
C-a-l-i-f-
R-a-g-i-l-

Jane and Michael: I-s-t-i-c-e-x-p-i-a-l-i-d-o-c-i-o-u-s!

Bert (spoken): Here we go! Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it is something quite atroscious!
If you say it loud enough, you'll always sound precocious,
Supercalifragilistic-

Jane and Michael: Supercalifragilistic-
