Disney Quote of the Day

Today we're focusing on a delightful quote from Mary Poppins and a bit of Disney trivia as well. 
"Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down" ~ Mary Poppins


The song and the lyrics have an interesting back story. Julie Andrews wasn't fully committed to the part of Mary Poppins originally. She did not like the song that was written for her, believing it did not have enough snap to it. The original song was called "The Eyes of Love". Walt Disney instructed the Sherman Brothers to come up with something more catchy.

Robert Sherman, the brilliant lyricist created a new song the following day with the help of his children. As he explained it, one evening after arriving home from work and while he and his wife Joyce were discussing the days events, she told him that the children had gotten their polio vaccines. His children recounted that it didn't hurt because the medicine was put on a cube of sugar and that they had swallowed it. The next morning he had the title of the song "A Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Medicine Go Down".

Mary Poppins Focused on the Magic

A Spoonful Of Sugar Lyrics 
Mary Poppins:
[Spoken]
In ev'ry job that must be done 
There is an element of fun 
You find the fun and snap! 
The job's a game

[Sung]
And ev'ry 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-wown
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-wown
The medicine go down 
Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
In a most delightful way

[Interlude]

The honey bee that fetch the nectar
From the flowers to the comb
Never tire of ever buzzing to and fro
Because they take a little nip
From ev'ry flower that they sip
And hence (And hence),
They find (They find)
Their task is not a grind.

Ah-h-h-h-h-h-h-h-h-h-h ah!

A Spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down 
The medicine go down-wown 
The medicine go down 
Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down 
In a most delightful way
