Ain't it a glorious day?
Right as a mornin' in May
I feel like I could fly
Have you ever seen the grass
so green, or a bluer sky?

Oh it's a jolly 'oliday with Mary
Mary makes your 'eart so light!
When the day is gray and ordianry
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 'oliday with Mary
No wonder that it's Mary that we love!
(Repeat)

Oh, it's a jollyl holiday with you, Bert
Gentlemen like you are few
Though you're just a diamond
in the rough, Bert
Underneath your blood is blue!
You'd never think of pressing
your advantage
Forbearance is the hallmark of your creed
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!

It's true that Mavis and Sybil 'ave
ways that are winning
And Prudence and Gwendolyn
set your 'eart spinning
Phoebe's delightful, Maude is disarming
Janice, Felicia, Lydia--charming
Cynthia's dashing, Vivian's sweet
Stephanie's smashing, Priscilla a treat
Veronica, Millicent, Agnes, and Jane
Convivial company, time and again
Dorcas and Phyllis and Glynis are sorts
I'll agree are three jolly good sports
But cream of the crop, tip of the top
It's Mary Poppins, and there we stop!
