Cherry Tree Lane (reprise) / Being Mrs Banks / Jolly Holiday (reprise)

Mary Poppins

What good a rules if you can bend them?
We need a nanny who is disciplined and stern
With boys and girls you don't befriend them
I fear that Mary Poppins has a lot to learn

Precision and order
Our credo for life
It's always been a comfort to me
And my wife

But now in our midst there's
Well, I can't explain
But something is unsettling
In Cherry Tree Lane

Being Mrs Banks
Should be an easy role
And yet it's one
Which I don't seem to good at
On the whole

I have a comfy home
I have a simple life
I have a name which tells the world
I'm someone else's wife

Being Mrs Banks
What does that entail?
Facing tests of character
I always seem to fail

And as for his 'best' people
Well, I'd like to say "no thanks"
They're not exactly my idea
Of being Mrs Banks

I still feel as if I'm dreaming

So much fun in just one day

When Mary holds your hand
You feel so grand
Your heart starts beating
Like a big brass band

Do look! Neleus is beaming!

Let's hope she will stay

Good night, Neleus.

Let's hope she will stay
