Just A Spoonful Of Sugar

Lyrics

In ev'ry job that must be done
There is an element of fun.
You find the fun and snap!
The job's a game.
And ev'ry task you undertake
Becomes a piece of cake,
A lark, a spree,
It's very clear to see-.

That a spoonful of sugar
Helps the medicine go down,
The medicine go down, medicine go down.
Just a spoonful of sugar
Helps the medicine go down,
In a most delightful way!
A robin feathering his nest
Has very little time to rest,
While gathering his bits of twine and twig.
Though quite intent in his pursuit,
He has a merry tune to toot;
He knows a song will move the job along-
For a spoonful of sugar
Helps the medicine go down,
The medicine go down, medicine go down.
Just a spoonful of sugar
Helps the medicine go down,
In a most delightful way!
The honeybees that fetch the nectar from
The flowers to the comb
Never tire of ev'ry buzzing to and fro,
Because they take a little nip
From every flower that they sip
And hence they find their task is not a grind- For a spoonful of sugar
Helps the medicine go down,
The medicine go down, medicine go down.
Just a spoonful of sugar
Helps the medicine go down,
In a most delightful way!

Information About Just A Spoonful Of Sugar

"A Spoonful Of Sugar" is a song featured in the 1964 Walt Disney film Mary Poppins, and was composed by Richard and Robert Sherman.

"The Eyes of Love" was the song's original name; however, legend has it that Julie Andrews, who had not yet decided whether to take the role of Mary Poppins, did not like the song. Thereafter, Walt Disney instructed the Sherman Brothers to create something catchier. Robert Sherman got the idea for the new lyrics after finding out his children had just had their polio vaccine administered via a cube of sugar; hence "A Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Medicine Go Down".

This song was authored by Disney, Walt Disney Records, and the Walt Disney Music Company and is protected by copyright.
