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 of their own, his words being interspersed 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.: 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
