Mary Poppins the Musical - Practically Perfect Lyrics

MARY POPPINS
By the time the wind has blown the weather vane around,
I'll show you if I can,
No matter what the circumstance for one thing I'm renowned,
My character is spit spot spic and span,
I'm practically perfect in every way,

JANE
Practically Perfect?

MARY POPPINS
So people say,
Each virtue virtually knows no bound,
Each trait is great and patiently sound,
I'm practically perfect from head to toe,
If I had a fault it would never dare to show,
I'm so practically perfect in every way,

Both prim and proper and never to stern,
Well educated yet willing to learn,
I'm clean and honest my manner refined,
And I wear shoes of the sensible kind,
I suffer no nonsense and whilst I remain,
There's nothing else I feel I need explain,

I'm practically perfect in every way,
Practically perfect that's my forte,
Uncanny nannies are hard to find,
Unique yet meek unspeakably kind,
I'm practically perfect not slightly soiled,
Running like an engine, thats just been freshly oiled,
I'm so practically perfect in every way,
Well those are my prudentials,
Perhaps you have a few questions?

MICHAEL
Not Tempremental?

MARY POPPINS
Never

MICHAEL
Not Grouchy or Gruff?

MARY POPPINS
Oh, the very thought,

JANE
Will you stay tender when the going gets tough?

MARY POPPINS
Quite the contrary,

MICHAEL
Do you read stories without a big fuss?

MARY POPPINS
Umm Hmm,

JANE
Or have objections to playing with us?

MARY POPPINS
Oh, I like games, but I choose them,
Some minor improvements may not go a miss,
But at all times you must remember this,

JANE AND MICHAEL
You're practically perfect in every way,

MARY POPPINS
I guarantee,

JANE AND MICHAEL
Practically perfect we hope you'll stay,

MARY POPPINS
No Flies on me,
Each virtue vurtually knows no bound,
Each trait is great,

JANE AND MICHAEL
And patiently sound,

MARY POPPINS
Patiently sound,
Spit spot,
La da da dee,
La da da daa,
La da da daa,
Da da da daa,
Da da da da da daa,
Jane, put your toys away please,

JANE
Do I have to?

MARY POPPINS
Yes,
Michael tidy your things,

MICHAEL
It's not fair!

MARY POPPINS
I didn't say I was fair, I said,
I'm practically perfect and here's my aim,
By the time I leave here you both will be the same,
You'll be practically perfect,

JANE AND MICHAEL
Practically perfect,

ALL
You/we will be practically perfect in every way.
