Music Mondays: Super -califragilistic -expialidocious!

Are you ready for Thanksgiving week? It could be a little crazy leading up to turkey day so if you need to just exhale for a moment this week, channel your inner Mary Poppins and sing something silly like...


It was a song written by Disney Legends Richard Sherman and Robert Sherman for the 1964 Disney musical film Mary Poppins It has been well documented that the Sherman brothers made up this nonsense word that would become just as popular as Mary Poppins. Julie Andrews sings it so well, too. 

The melody is lively, and the lyrics are fun. 

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

Um diddle, diddle diddle, um diddle ay
Um diddle, diddle diddle, um diddle ay

Several years ago, I was lucky enough to see the Broadway production of Mary Poppins. The musical stage version is just as fun and the hand gestures during this song is mind blowing. There are all sorts of YouTube videos teaching you how to learn the crazy choreography to this song.

Want to break the ice at the Thanksgiving table or have a little Disney fun? Ask someone what's the longest word in the dictionary. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! 

Happy Music Monday!
