Dont judge a movie by the trailer either
Tahlia Evans
Jack's (Lin-Manuel Miranda's) Rap

Once upon a time
In a nursery rhyme
There was a castle with a king
Hiding in a wing
'Cause he never went to school to learn a single thing

He had scepters and swords
And a parliament of lords
But on the inside he was sad
Egad!
Because he never had a wisdom for numbers
A wisdom for words
Though his crown was quite immense
His brain was smaller that a bird's

So the queen of the nation
Made a royal proclamation
"To the Missus and the Messers
The more or lessers,
Bring me all the land's professors"
Then she went to the hair dressers

And they came from the east
And they came from the south
From each college they poured knowledge
From their brains into his mouth

But the king couldn't learn
So each professor met their fate
For the queen had their heads removed
And placed upon the gate
And on that date
I state their wives all got a note
Their mate was now thr late great!

But then suddenly one day
A stranger started in to sing
He said "I'm the dirty rascal
And I'm here to teach the king!"

And the queen clutched her jewels
For she hated royal fools
But this food had some rules
They really ought to teach in schools

Like you'll be a happy king
If you enjoy the things you've got
You should never try to be
The kind of person that you're not

So they sang and they laughed
For the king had found a friend
And they ran onto a rainbow for
The story's perfect end

So the moral is you mustn't let
The outside be the guide
For it's not so cut and dried
Well unless it's Dr. Jekyll
Then you better hide
Petrified!

No, the truth can't be denied
As I now have testified
All that really counts and matters
Is the special stuff inside!
The mad Hatter
This honestly is such a good song... and that accent is amazing too and... UH HOW IS THIS SO GOOD?

When Mary says “we’ll the faster you start the faster you finish” we ALL knew what was about to happen

Uncle Gutenberg was a book worm
And he lived on Charing Cross
The memory of his volumes
Brings a smile

He would read me lots of stories
When he wasn't on the sauce
Now I'd like to share the wisdom
Of my favourite bibliophile

He said...
A cover is not the book
So open it up and take a look
For under the cover one discovers
That the king may be a crook

Chapter titles are like signs
And if you read between the lines
You'll find your first impression was mistook
For a cover is nice but a cover is not the book!

Mary Poppins, could you give us an example?

MARY POPPINS
Certainly!

"Nellie Rubina" was made of wood
But what could not be seen
Was though her trunk up top was barren
Well, her roots were lush and green

So in spring when Mr. Hick'ry
Saw her blossoms bloomin' there
He took root (despite her bark)
And now there's seedlings everywhere!

MARY POPPINS AND JACK
A cover is not the book
So open it up and take a look
For under the cover one discovers
That the king may be a crook

Chapter titles are like signs

MARY POPPINS
And if you read between the lines

MARY POPPINS AND JACK
You'll find your first impression was mistook
For a cover is nice but a cover is not the book!

JACK
Shall we do the one about the "Wealthy Widow"?

MARY POPPINS
Oh, by all means!

JACK
Always loves that one

MARY POPPINS
Oh, go on then

JACK
"Lady Hyacinth Macaw"
Brought all her treasures to a reef

MARY POPPINS
Where she only wore a smile

JACK
Plus two feathers and a leaf

MARY POPPINS
So no one tried to rob her
'Cause she barely wore a stitch

JACK
For when you're in your birthday suit

MARY POPPINS AND JACK
There ain't much there to show you're rich!

MARY POPPINS, JACK AND ALL
A cover is not the book
So open it up and take a look

MARY POPPINS
Give us the one about the "Dirty Rascal", why don't you?

JACK
Isn't that one a bit long?

MARY POPPINS
Well the quicker you're into it, the quicker you're out of it

I was able to see an early screening as part of a D23 event. This song was SO much fun to see!! The 2D animation is absolutely incredible.
httydgirl74
This is where they are in the 2d animation world.
The mad Hatter
I laughed so hard at this song already without even seeing any of it
María Victoria Jaunsolo
So Lin-Manuel Miranda does rap in this movie?
I mean I thought he'll do it, but I was just joking jajajajaja
Ninoirable
O am I talking to loud? Sometimes I get overexcited...
bleedorange2332
this screams vintage silly disney shit. i love it.
WileyCoyote69
This shows the genius of Emily Blunt. She cleverly does the posh Mary aping common in a hilarious way. And the Lin pseudo rap sends this over the top into super genius.
Avery Lopez-Baines
And you don’t judge a book by its cover
Franzo Pizarro
Love this one to !! Can't stop listening !
Andrew McCarthy
I love this
Zachary S. Marsh
This is easily the best scene and the best song in the movie, and yet Disney doesn’t even have this up for consideration for Best Original Song. What gives, Disney?!
Mark Hall
Haha omg the first example given by Mary is really sexual haha surprised Disney allowed that in 😅 something for the parents haha
