Lyrics
A British bank is run with precision
A British home requires nothing less!
Tradition, discipline, and rules must
be the tools
Without them - disorder! Chaos!
Moral disintegration!
In short, you have a ghastly mess!

The children must be molded, shaped
and taught
That life's a looming battle to be faced
and fought

If they must go on outings
these outings ought to be
Fraught with purpose, yes,
and practically!
These silly words like superca...
superca... superca...

MP: "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"
G: "Yes well done you said it"

And popping trough pictures
Have little use, fulfill no basic need!
They've got to learn the honest truth
despite their youth
They must learn...

About the life you lead

The must feel the thrill of totting
up a balanced book
A thousand ciphers neathly in a row
When gazing at a graph that shows
the profits up
Their little cup of joy should overflow!

It's time they learned to walk in your
footsteps
To tread your straight and narrow
path with pride
Tomorrow, just as you suggest
pressed and dressed
Jane and Michael will be at your side
