I used to love flying kites at his age. But my nanny, Miss Andrew, soon frightened it out of me. All the best people have nannies….so the wives can do charity work and entertain. Which reminds me, how is your tea party coming on? Remember: “By your friends shall ye be judged.” Winnifred. Dearest. I’m only thinking of you. Are you going to say something to Mary Poppins about this afternoon? Just make sure she’s doing things our way and not hers.
Well well well...if it isn’t Mary Poppins! With Jane and Michael Banks! And how is poor little Georgie? Georgie Banks? Your father? He used to give his nanny the slip and come into my shop here in secret. I remember Georgie used to love my gingerbread stars. Now, Mary Poppins, what can I do for you? I’m out of conversations, and I’m right out of words too. Oooooh, I do have some letters….and where do you think words came from in the first place? Somebody had to make them up.
Remember now, you are part of the crowd. If we are to save our friends, we must do everything the crowd does. If they boo, so do you. If they throw trash, so do you. Wait for my signal then move like lighting. Scarlett, cut Twig and Willow loose while Joan and the others hold back the guards. Leave the Sheriff to me.
Fathers are supposed to look after their children, not yell at them all the time. I don’t want to be in an upside-down family. I wish I could run away. But you’d miss me. Oh, Mary Poppins, I wish you’d just leave us alone! Don’t you ever stop? I’m sick and tired of your stupid sayings and your stupid games! I won’t go to sleep, and you can’t make me!
There wasn’t room on that little bridge for Robyn to pass without Little Joan going back. Robyn wouldn’t move so Joan threw her over the rail and into the water below — or so she thought. She bent over the rail to laugh at Robyn and Robyn was there, hanging from the side. She grabbed Joan and pulled her over. They fell together into the icy waters — and have been best friends ever since.
It isn’t much of a house, is it? It doesn’t take a lot to keep you happy. Look at the dust! There! And there! Filth! Ah. You must be the children. Pity. I don’t suppose you know who I am? And why aren’t you wearing stockings? Tut! What manners! I can see there is not a minute to lose!
I got a bad feeling in my bones. There could be an attack on the jail any minute. No, no. Don’t tell me it’s in my imagination because it ain’t. You hear something? Come on out of the shadows, whoever you are! Come out with your hands up. Come out or I’ll shoot! I’m shooting! (shoots crossbow, moves close to look) I’ve shot my jacket!
MARY POPPINS: Good morning.
GEORGE (stunned by the sudden intruder): Yes??
MARY POPPINS I’ve come in to answer the advertisement.
GEORGE What advertisement? We haven’t placed any advertise--
MARY POPPINS (pulls a mended piece of paper from her pocket) Now let’s see. “Play games, all sorts.” Which I most certainly can. “Take us on outings, give us treats.” “Rosy cheeks and fairly pretty” There’s no objection on that score, I hope?
GEORGE (flustered) Oh, none at all.
MARY POPPINS I’m glad to hear it.
GEORGE But-- oh, take it up with Mrs. Banks. She manages all that side of things. Nothing domestic has anything to do with me. And don’t forget the references!
MARY POPPINS I make it a rule never to give references. I’ll see the children now, thank you.
They are at a public competition to find the best archer, a competition designed to draw Robyn Hood out from the woods so that they can arrest her. The Sheriff has just shot his bow and arrow.
SHERIFF Ha! A perfect bull’s eye.
ROBYN (in disguise) Well, well! That’s what you call pullin’ it back and lettin’ it go! You’ll be hard to beat, that’s for sure.
SHERIFF Hard to beat? You have to use my target. My arrow is already in the bullseye. What do you think you can do?
ROBYN Suppose I’ll have to split your arrow, Sheriff.
SHERIFF Ha! If you shoot half as well as you talk, you’re better than Robyn Hood.
ROBYN Better than— Wowee! I’m tiptop, but I’m not half as good as that. (start to aim arrow) I hear you’re having trouble getting your hands on that Robyn Hood.
SHERIFF She’s scared of me, that’s what she is.
ROBYN Is she now?
SHERIFF You notice she didn’t show up at this competition.
ROBYN What if she’s in disguise?
SHERIFF Ha! I could see through any disguise of hers.
Precision and order
That’s all that I ask
The running of a household,
A straightforward task.
The children, the servants
Are all your domain
Whilst I remain the sovereign
Of Cherry Tree Lane.
Boring, just like other nannies
Thinking parks are good for us
It’s just statues, ducks, and grannies
I don’t understand all the fuss.
Is she doing it to spite us?
We could lose her for a lark!
Perhaps it’s all a plot
I’ll tell you what
She seems so diff’rent but I bet she’s not.
There is nothing to excite us in… the… park.
And ev’ry task you undertake
Becomes a piece of cake
A lark, a spree!
It’s very clear to see
That a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
The medicine go down
Medicine go down
Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
In a most delightful way!
Up where the smoke is all billowed and curled
‘Tween pavement and stars is the chimney sweep’s world.
Where there’s ‘ardly no day
Nor ‘ardly no night
There’s things ‘alf in shadow
And ‘alfway in light
On the rooftops of London
Coo! What a sight!
A worm can roll a stone
A bee can sting a bear
A fly can fly around Versailles
'Cos flies don't care!
A sparrow in a hut
Can make a happy home
A flea can bite the bottom
Of the Pope ïn Rome!
I ask for nothing
I can get by
But I know so many
Less lucky than I
God help the outcasts
The poor and down trod
I thought we all were
The children of God
If you mess with my girl
You leave me with no choice
I might have to raise my voice
Get all up in your face
And put you right in your place
If you mess with my girl
Guess who's gonna mess with you?
150 pound angry dude
Losing his mind and rocking your world
If you mess with my girl
There’s no use knocking on that door for two reasons. The first is that I’m on the same side of the door as you. Secondly, the Duchess is so noisy inside that she won’t hear you if you do. If you were inside, you might knock, and I could let you out. Do you even want to go in? That’s the important question. If you are set on entering… have you tried turning the handle? There’s a good girl.
Which way you should go depends on where you want to get. If you’ll go anywhere, it doesn’t matter. Every path will take you there. Down this trail lives a Hatter. He’s mad, you know - but I’ll tell you a secret. All the very best people are. In the other direction lives the March Hare. She’s mad. We’re all mad.
Have some wine. It’s right not there. Wait! What am I thinking? Introductions! I’m the Mad Hatter. Charmed, you’re sure. This sleeping rat is Dormouse. This is the March Hare. And this is the May Ham. Delicious may ham. Don’t worry about the elephant. (We don’t speak about him!) Now, what’s your name? No matter. Introductions are over! Pass a clean cup, please!
My teacher was the great sea turtle, Tortoise. Why was he called Tortoise if he was a sea turtle? Silly girl. Because he ‘taught us’. You ought to be ashamed for asking such a simple question. Lessons were ten hours the first day, nine the next and so on. What’s that? Do speak up, girl. Why do they get shorter? They are ‘lessons’. They lessen from day to day. You’re really quite dull, you know. Or maybe you don’t.
Oh Sire! You’re gonna love this number! I wrote it for my star pupil - your youngest! Such a voice, that child! Notes as clear as ice, pitch as pure as water! Why I haven’t heard such a magnificent sound since the queen….oh, you’re gonna be so proud! If only that girl would show up for rehearsals once in a while.
Flotsam, my pet! Jetsam, my darling! Come to me, my sea-spies! Mama’s feeling….woebegone - banished to the nether regions of the sea. No food, hardly any company...I’m simply wasting away! Yes, poor me! Use a little black magic to help out a few merfolk, and this is the thanks I get! Well, now it’s time to turn the tides on Triton. We just need to find his Achilles heel...a weakness that will crack his armor.
Seagull? Human stuff? You went up to the surface?! You could have been seen by one of those barbarians! They’re dangerous - nets, harpoons! You’re my youngest! As long as you live under my reef, you’ll obey my rules! That’s the last time you’re ever swimming to the surface! Understood?
But he didn’t frighten me. He made me feel...wonderful! Besides, I am not a child any more! It doesn’t matter - you don’t understand! I wish mother were here! I hate father! And some friend you turned out to be - spilling everything - I don’t need you. I don’t need any of you! Go away! I said, go away!
Dee: Ahhh! Look at that!
Dee: My rattle!
Dum: I only wanted to play with it.
Dee: You broke it! You know we must battle.
Dum: Must we?
Dee: We must! What’s the time?
Dum: Half past a lunatic.
Dee: Very good. We’ll fight ‘til a quarter of sanity.
Dum: You might want to step back, Alice.
Dee: Yes! I generally hit everything I see.
Dum: And I generally hit everything within reach - whether I see it or not
What would I give
To live where you are
What would I pay
To stay here beside you
What would I do to see you
Smiling at me
I don’t know when
I don’t know how
But I know
Watch and you’ll see
Someday I’ll be
Part of your world
Is she ill or insane?
Is it water on the brain?
What has got her bothered so?
It’s the bends, it’s the flu
Gosh I wish we had a clue
It’s clear -
She’s in love!
She’s in love!
Look, I think she’s even wearing brand new shells!
Pick up the dinglehopper
Just like so
Twirl it the way I’m twirling now
Give it a little yank
And there ya go
You’re what they call the dog’s meow
Wonderful stuff, that human stuff!
Can’t get enough, of human stuff!
And we are the authority
No need for us to bluff
Because we are great
The seaweed is always greener
In somebody else’s lake
You dream about going up there
But that is a big mistake
Just look at the world around you
Right here on the ocean floor
Such wonderful things surround you
What more is you looking for?
Under the sea, under the sea
Darling it’s better
Down where it’s wetter
Take it from me!
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devoting
Full time to floating
Under the sea!
