A Spoonful Of Sugar

Album: Mary Poppins Soundtrack (1964)
  • 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, the 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, the medicine go down
    Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
    In a most delightful way

    The honey bee that fetch the nectar from the flowers to the comb
    Never tired 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

    Ah, ah, ah!
