Can You Imagine That? (From "Mary Poppins Returns


Yes, it’s another musical interlude!  I am still preparing to go see the film. I am going to know every song before I sit down with my soda and popcorn.  I want to be fully immersed in the experience.

Lyrics from Mary Poppins ReturnsMusic by Marc Shaiman; lyrics by Scott WittmanPerformed by Emily Blunt, Pixie Davies, Joel Dawson and Nathanael Saleh

John, you’re rightIt’s good to know you’re brightFor intellect can wash away confusionGeorgie sees, and Annabel agreesMost folderol’s an optical illusionYou three know it’s trueThat one plus one is twoYes, logic is the rock of our foundationI suspect, and I’m never incorrectThat you’re far too old to give in to imaginationNo, not yetSome people like to splash and playCan you imagine that?And take a seaside holidayCan you imagine that?Too much glee leaves rings around the brainTake that joy and send it down the drainSome people like to laugh at lifeAnd giggle through the dayThey think the world’s a brand new shiny toyAnd if while dreaming in the cloudsThey fall and go ker-splatAlthough they’re down and bent in halfThey brush right off and start to laughCan you imagine that?(…spoken…)[Mary Poppins:] On second thoughts, perhaps you’re right. It makes no sense to take a bath this early.[Georgie:] Wait! I want to take a bath.[Mary Poppins:] Oh, really? Up you go, and in you go.[John:] Georgie![Annabel:] What happened? Will they be alright?[Mary Poppins:] Well, it is just a bath, after all. But then again it’s not my tub.[Annabel:] Shouldn’t you go in after them?[Mary Poppins:] No, I had my bath this morning, thank you.[Annabel:] Well, if you won’t, I will![Mary Poppins:] Off we go!Some people like to dive right inCan you imagine that?And flap about in bathtub ginCan you imagine that?Doggies paddling twenty leagues belowMight seem real, but we know it’s not soTo cook without a recipeCan you imagine that?And heaven knows what lives within that potSome pirates follow treasure mapsAnd wear a silly hatThey search the world for buried goldThey won’t grow up, and don’t grow oldCan you imagine that?Be sure to scrub behind your ears!Some answer when adventure callsCan you imagine that?And sail straight over waterfallsCan you imagine that?They see living as its own reward(Ahoy!)They rock the boat, then -(Man overboard!)Some people look out on the seaAnd see a brand new dayTheir spirit lifts them high above the blueYet some others spear an anchorAnd they sink in seconds flatSo, perhaps we’ve learned when day is doneSome stuff and nonsense could be fun!Can you imagine that?
