The Toddler is singing:
Even though The Sound of Music…’
Yes, she has created a Mary Poppins/Sound of Music mash up. The hair dye has not fooled her: Julie Andrews is Julie Andrews, no need for separate songs around here.
I have been hoping she will continue on with the original lyrics of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious:
Even though The Sound of Music is something quite atrocious…’
Thus far, The Toddler has not obliged. I have therefore kindly completed the verse on her behalf. I expect that Julie Andrews will be wanting to use my new song, and she is very welcome.
Even though The Sound of Music is something quite atrocious
If you watch Mary Poppins long enough, you always will forgive me
Obviously, following this triumph, I was feeling a little bit pleased with myself, and I have therefore taken the whole thing too far. Oh, yes, I have come up with further Mary Poppins/Sound of Music mashups.
Introducing The Sound of Poppins, in which flying nanny nuns ward off marauding Nazis and amorous chimney sweeps in fairly equal measure. Featuring an award winning soundtrack*, including:
- 1. Sister Maria Suffragette
2. ‘A spoonful of sugar helps the anschluss go down
The anschuss go down
The anschluss go down
Just a spoonful of sugar helps the anschluss go down
In the most delightful way’
- 3. My Carpet Bag Things
- 4. Let’s Go Fly a Swastika
5. Goose Step in Time
(‘It’s the Fuhrer, step in time
It’s the Fuhrer, step in time’)
Actually, they could have used Mary Poppins in The Sound of Music. She’d have got those troublesome Nazis under control. Practically Perfect people don’t stand for invasions of Poland. Of course, then who would have stopped those bloody awful children caterwauling? (People claim the Nazis did nothing for the arts. No one ever remembers that they got the Von Trapps off the stage. Credit where it’s due, I say.)
