A Spoonful of Sugar


Lyrics from Mary Poppins
Composed by Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman
Performed by Julie Andrews, with Karen Dotrice and Matthew Garber

Mary Poppins, Robin

In every job that must be done
There is an element of fun
You find the fun, and snap!
The job's a game
And every 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

A robin feathering his nest
Has very little time to rest
While gathering his bits of twine and twig
Though quite intent in his pursuit
He has a merry tune to toot
He knows a song
Will move the job along

For 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

The honeybees that fetch the nectar
From the flowers to the comb
Never tire of ever buzzing to and fro
Because they take a little nip
From every flower that they sip
And hence
(And hence)
They find
(They find)
Their task is not a grind
