Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

 
Laura Michelle Kelly Lyrics
Mary Poppins Soundtrack Musical, 2001
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious MARY POPPINS:
Super… calif… ragilistic… expialid… ocious! Oh!

MICHAEL:
That’s not a word!

MARY POPPINS:
(speaking) Of course it’s a word. And unless I’m very much mistaken, I think it’s going to prove a rather useful one.
(singing) When trying to express oneself, it’s frankly quite absurd
To leaf through lengthy lexicons, to find the perfect word.
A little spontaneity keeps conversation keen
You need to find a way to say precisely what you mean.
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Even though the sound of it is simply quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough, you’ll always sound precocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Um diddle um diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle um diddle um diddle ay

JANE:
(speaking) But it doesn’t mean anything!

MARY POPPINS:
(speaking) It can mean precisely what you want it to!
(singing) When stone-age men were chatting, simply grunting would suffice.

BERT:
Though if they’d heard this word, they might have used it once or twice.

MARY POPPINS:
(speaking) That’s right.

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

MRS. CORRY
Ahhh

MARY POPPINS
Ahhhh

BERT:
Ah-ah-ah-ah.

ALL
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Um diddle um diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle um diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle um diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle um diddle um diddle ay

BERT:
The Druids could have carved it on their mighty monoliths

MRS. CORRY:
The ancient Greeks, I’m certain, could have used it in their myths.

MARY POPPINS:
I’m sure the Roman Empire only entered the abyss
Because those Latin scholars never had a word like this!
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

MARY POPPINS:
If you say it softly, the effect can be hypnocious.

BERT:
Check your breath before you speak, in case it’s halitotious

MARY POPPINS:
(speaking) Oh, Bert.

ALL:
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Um diddle um diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle um diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle um diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle um diddle um diddle ay!

MARY POPPINS:
Of course, you can say it backwards, which is suoicodiliaipxecitsiligarfilacrepus.

MICHAEL:
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 18 consonants and 16 vowels as well
And put them in an order, which is very hard to spell…

MARY POPPINS:
S-U-P-E-R

BERT:
R

MARY POPPINS:
C-A-L-I-F

BERT:
F

MARY POPPINS:
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:
(mutters) Clever clogs…

ALL:
S-U-P-E-R- C-A-L-I-F-R-A-G-I-L-I-S-T-I-C-E-X-P-I-A-L-I-D-O-C-I-O-U-S!
S-U-P-E-R
C-A-L-I-F
R-A-G-I-L
I-S-T-I-C-E-X-P-I-A-L-I-D-O-C-I-O-U-S!
S-U-P-E-R
C-A-L-I-F
R-A-G-I-L
I-S-T-I-C-E-X-P-I-A-L-I-D-O-C-I-O-U-S!

BERT:
(speaking) Here we go!

ALL:
(Singing) Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough, you’ll always sound precocious
Supercalifragilistic

JANE AND MICHAEL:
Supercalifragilistic

ALL:
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
