Lyrics and Chords

[Mary Poppins]

[ F#dim7 = xx1212 ; Abdim7 = xx0101 ]

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

/ A7 D A7 D / G D G D / G D A7 D / E7 - - A7 / 

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

... / E7 - A7 - /

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

/ D7 - G - / D7 - G - / E7 - A - / E7 Em7 A7 - /

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

/ A7 D A7 D / G D G D / G EmA7 D F#dim7 / Em A7 Am7 B7 /

Hurry nanny, many thanks
Sincerely, Jane and Michael Banks

/ G6 - Abdim7 - / D - EmA7 D /
