Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious - London Cast Recording

Super-cali-fragilistic-expialid-ocious
That's not a word!
Of course it's a word
And unless I'm very much mistaken
I think it's going to prove a rather useful one

When trying to express oneself it's frankly quite absurd
To leaf through lengthy lexicans to find the perfect word
A little spontaneity keeps conversation keen
You need to find a way to say precisely what you mean

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough you'll always sound precocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Um diddle iddle iddle um diddle ay

But it doesn't mean anything!
It can mean exactly what you want it to

When stone age men were chatting simply grunting would suffice
Now if they'd heard this word they would have used it once or twice
That's right
I'm sure Egyptian pharoahs would have grasped it in a jiff
Then every single pyramid would bare this hieroglyph

Oh! Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Say it and wild animals would not seem so ferocious
Add some further flourishes it solo-co-co-cocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Um diddle iddle iddle um diddle ay
Um diddle iddle iddle um diddle ay
Um diddle iddle iddle um diddle ay
Um diddle iddle iddle um diddle ay

The Druids could have carved it on their mighty monolith
The Ancient Greeks I'm certain would have used it in their myths
I'm sure the Roman empire only entered the abyss
Because those Latin scholars never had a word like this

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
If you say it softly the effect can be hypnotious
Check your breath before you speak in case it's hallitocious
Oh Bert!
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Um diddle iddle iddle um diddlie ay
Um diddle iddle iddle um diddlie ay
Um diddle iddle iddle um diddlie ay
Um diddle iddle iddle um diddlie ay

Of course you can say it backwards which is
Suoicodilaipxecitsiligarfilacrepus
She may be tricky but she's bloody good!

So when the cat has got your tongue there's no need for dismay
Just summon up this word and then you've got a lot to say
Pick out those eighteen consanants and sixteen vowels as well
And put them in an order which is very hard to spell

S-u-p-e-r
R
C-a-l-i-f
F
R-a-g-i-l
L
I-s-t-i-c-e-x-p-i-a-l-i-d-o-c-i-o-u-s

S-u-p-e-r

C-a-l-i-f
R-a-g-i-l
I-s-t-i-c-e-x-p-i-a-l-i-d-o-c-i-o-u-s
Here we go!

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough you'll always sound precocious
Supercalifragilistic
Supercalifragilistic

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
