Fidelity Fidecuary Bank

"Fidelity Fiduciary Bank" is a song from the musical, Mary Poppins. It was composed by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman. It is sung by George Banks, the bank officers and Mr. Dawes Sr.

It is also heard in the film Saving Mr. Banks, where the Sherman Brothers sing a demo of the song to P.L. Travers, who, at the same time, is remembering her father making a speech at a local fair about children opening bank accounts, his words being interpedd with the song's lyrics.

Lyrics

Mr. Dawes Sr: If you invest your tuppence

Wisely in the bank

Safe and sound

Soon that tuppence

Safely invested in the bank

Will compound

And you'll achieve that sense of conquest

As your affluence expands

In the hands of the directors

Who invest as propriety demands

Mr. Banks: You see, Michael, you'll be part of

Railways through Africa

Dams across the Nile

Fleets of ocean greyhounds

Majestic, self-amortizing canals

Plantations of ripening tea

All from...

Mr. Dawes Sr, Mr. Banks and Bank Officers: ...tuppence, prudently
Fruitfully, frugally invested
In the, to be specific

In the Dawes, Tomes
Mousely, Grubbs
Fidelity Fiduciary Bank!


Mr. Banks: Now, Michael
When you deposit tuppence in a bank account
Soon you'll see
That it blooms into credit of a generous amount
Semiannually


Mr. Dawes Sr, Mr. Banks and Bank Officers: And you'll achieve that sense of stature
As your influence expands

To the high financial strata

That established credit now commands


Mr. Dawes Sr: You can purchase first and second trust deeds

Think of the foreclosures!

Bonds!

Chattels!

Dividends!

Shares!



Bank Officers: Bankruptcies!

Debtor sales!

Opportunities!


Mr. Dawes Jr.: All manner of private enterprise!


Bank Officers: Shipyards!

The mercantile!



Collieries!

Tanneries!


Incorporations!

Amalgamations!

Banks!

Mr Dawes Sr.: (dialogue) While stands the banks of England, England stands. When falls the banks of England, England falls

Mr Banks: You see, Michael, all for the lack of

Mr Banks, Mr Dawes and the Bank officers: Tuppence, patiently, cautiously trustingly invested


In the, to be specific,

In the Dawes, Tomes
Mousely, Grubbs
Fidelity Fiduciary Bank!
