Mary Poppins – Fidelity Fiduciary Bank lyrics

If you invest your tuppence wisely in the bank
Safe and sound
Soon that tuppence safely invested in the bank
Will compound

And you'll achieve that sense of conquest
As your affluence expands
In the hands of the directors
Who invest as propriety demands

You see, Michael, you'll be part of railways through Africa
Dams across the Nile
The ships!

< br />

Fleets of ocean greyhounds
More! Tell them more! Go on!
Majestic, self-amortizing canals
Fires the imagination!

Plantations of ripening tea, all from tuppence, prudently
Fruitfully, frugally invested in the, to be specific
In the Dawes, Tomes, Mousely, Grubbs
Fidelity Fiduciary Bank

Now, Michael, when you deposit tuppence in a bank account
Soon you'll see
That it blooms into credit of a generous amount
Semi annually

And you'll achieve that sense of stature
As your influence expands
To the high financial strata
That established credit now commands

You can purchase first and second trust deeds
Think of the foreclosures!
Bonds, chattels, dividends, shares
Bankruptcies, debtor sales, opportunities
All manner of private enterprise
Shipyards, the mercantile, collieries, tanneries
Incorporations, amalgamations, banks

You see, Michael, tuppence, patiently
Cautiously trustingly invested, in the, to be specific
In the Dawes, Tomes, Mousely, Grubbs
Fidelity Fiduciary Bank!
