Brimstone and Treacle (part 2) lyrics

Brimstone and Treacle (part 2)

MICHAEL:
Perhaps she's killed everyone.
Perhaps they're all dead.

(Bird song)

JANE:
What's that?

MARY POPPINS:
It's a caged bird!

(Bird song)

MARY POPPINS:
Did she? Well, frankly, that's
not a surprise!

(Bird song)

MARY POPPINS:
Locked in this cage and not
free in the skies!

(Bird song)

MARY POPPINS:
For two years? How shameful!

(Bird song)

MARY POPPINS:
Yes, of course. That's a field I know well.

(Bird song)

MARY POPPINS:
An hour, no longer.
Your wings will grow stronger.
Once you are freed from this cell.

JANE:
What kind of bird is it?

MARY POPPINS:
A lark. You are seeing a lark in a
cage for the first time, and the last!

(Bird song)

MARY POPPINS:
My pleasure.
Oh, don't mention it.

MRS. ANDREWS:
(Speaking) So, children. You've decided to come crawling back, have you?
Well, I think we know what's needed now!
(Singing) Brimstone and treacle, my favorite liquor.
That will make runaways stop!
Impudent children
respond so much quicker
when forced to drink every last drop.

MARY POPPINS:
(Speaking)Is this what you're looking for?

MRS. ANDREWS:
(Speaking) Who are you?

MARY POPPINS:
I'm Mary Poppins.

MRS. ANDREWS:
Mary Poppins! But you left, without notice.

MARY POPPINS:
And I've come back without notice.

MRS. ANDREWS:
I see. And what do you expect me to do?

MARY POPPINS:
Pack.

MRS. ANDREWS:
Pack!!
(Singing) Silly little girl, with your newfangled methods.
I bring up children so
they know their place!
Standing by tradition,
I govern my charges?

MARY POPPINS:
(Singing) Mishandled charges blow
up in your face!

MRS. ANDREWS:
I brought up their father!

MARY POPPINS:
Well, that I don't doubt! You
must be so proud, at the
way he turned out.

MRS. ANDREWS:
A shining example, a pillar!

MARY POPPINS:
A post! They
all have their problems, but
him more than most!

MRS. ANDREWS:
You've let my little lark
out of his cage!
Now you will bear the full
brunt of my rage!
Brimstone and treacle for you.
Brimstone and treacle for you.
Brimstone and treacle for you.
Brimstone and treacle for you.

MARY POPPINS:
Just a spoonful of sugar!
Just a spoonful of sugar!
Just a spoonful of sugar!

(Ahhh)

MARY POPPINS:
I recognize fully that
you are a bully Who
views cruel deeds as a perk.
Well then, now here's a catch, because you've met your match!
Brimstone and treacle,

MRS. ANDREWS:
Brimstone and treacle will work!

MARY POPPINS:
Won't work!

MRS. ANDREWS:
AAAAH!!!
