Brimstone And Treacle Part 2

Mary Poppins


[MICHAEL]
Perhaps she's killed everyone. Perhaps they're all dead.

[JANE]
What's that?

[MARY POPPINS]
It's a caged bird!

Did she, well frankly, that's not a surprise
Locked in this cage and not free in the skies
For two years?
How shameful
Yes, of course, that's a field I know well
An hour, no longer
Your wings will grow stronger
Once you are free from this cell

[MICHAEL]
What kind of bird is it?

[MARY POPPINS]
A lark. You are seeing a lark in a cage for the first time, and the last. My pleasure. Oh, don't mention it.

[MISS ANDREW]
So, children. You've decided to come crawling back, have you? Well, I think we know what's needed now.
Brimstone and treacle, my favourite liquor
That will make runaways stop
Impudent children respond so much quicker
When forced to drink every last drop

[MARY POPPINS]
Is this what you're looking for?

[MISS ANDREW]
Who are you?

[MARY POPPINS]
I'm Mary Poppins.

[MISS ANDREW]
Mary Poppins? But you left. Without notice.

[MARY POPPINS]
And I've come back without notice.

[MISS ANDREW]
I see. And what do you expect me to do?

[MARY POPPINS]
Pack.

[MISS ANDREW]
Pack?!
Silly little girl with your new-fangled methods
I bring up children so they know their place
Standing for tradition I govern my charges

[MARY POPPINS]
Mishandled charges blow up in your face

[MISS ANDREW]
I brought up their father

[MARY POPPINS]
Well that I don't doubt
You must be so proud
At the way he turned out

[MISS ANDREW]
A shining example, a pillar

[MARY POPPINS]
A post
They all have their problems
But him more than most

[MISS ANDREW]
You've let my little lark out of his cage
Now you will bear the full brunt of my rage
Brimstone and treacle for you
Brimstone and treacle for you

[MARY POPPINS]
Just a spoonful of sugar

[MISS ANDREW]
Brimstone and treacle for you

[MARY POPPINS]
Just a spoonful of sugar

[MISS ANDREW]
Brimstone and treacle for you

[MARY POPPINS]
Just a spoonful of sugar
Ah…

[MARY POPPINS vs MISS ANDREW]
Ah…
Ah…

[MARY POPPINS]
I recognise fully
That you are a bully
Who views cruel deeds as a perk
Well, now here's a catch
Because you've met your match
Brimstone and treacle

[MISS ANDREW]
Brimstone and treacle

[MARY POPPINS]
Brimstone and treacle

[MISS ANDREW]
Brimstone and treacle

[MARY POPPINS & MISS ANDREW]
Won't work
