Jolly Holiday is a song from Walt Disney's film Mary Poppins. It was composed by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman. The song is sung in the film by Bert (Dick Van Dyke) and Mary (Julie Andrews) in the pastel fantasy sequence before reaching the carousel. Oscar winning music arranger Irwin Kostal provided the much lauded orchestration.

This song also appears in the musical, but it was changed to fit the story of Neleus from Mary Poppins Opens the Door.[citation needed]

The motion picture takes place in 1910 (although the P.L. Travers books place the story in 1934) and the song is in the Music Hall style of the period.

This song has been parodied in Forbidden Broadway Cleans Up Its Act and the show's album, with the name "Jolly Holiday with Rudy," which made fun of the cleaning of Broadway at the time.

Motion Picture Lyrics

Bert:

Ain't it a glorious day?
Right as a mornin' in May
I feel like I could fly
'Ave you ever seen
The grass so green?
Or a bluer sky?

Oh, it's a jolly holiday With Mary
Mary makes your 'eart so light
When the day is gray And ordinary
Mary makes the sun shine bright!

Oh 'appiness is bloomin' All around 'er
The daffoldils are smilin' At the dove

When Mary 'olds your 'and You feel so grand
Your 'eart starts beatin' Like a big brass band

Oh, it's a jolly holiday with Mary
No wonder that it's Mary that we love!


Sheep: Oh, it's a jolly holiday With Mary
Lambs: Mary makes your 'eart so light
Horse: When the day is gray And ordinary
Cow: Mary makes the sun shine bright!

Ducks: Oh 'appiness is bloomin' All around 'er
Pig: The daffoldils are smilin' At the dove
Oink! Oink!

Farm Animals:
When Mary 'olds your 'and You feel so grand
Your 'eart starts beatin' Like a big brass band

Oh, it's a jolly holiday with Mary
No wonder that it's Mary that we love!


Mary Poppins:
Oh, it's a jolly holiday With you, Bert
Gentlemen like you are few
Though your just a diamond In the rough, Bert
Underneath your blood is blue!

You'd never think of pressing Your advantage
For bearance is the hallmark Of your creed

A lady needn't fear
When you are near
Your sweet gentility is crystal clear!

Oh, it's a jolly holiday with you, Bert
A jolly, jolly holiday with you!

Broadway Lyrics

Bert: All that it takes is a spark
Then something, plain as a park
Becomes a wonderland
All you have to do
Is look a-new
Then you’ll understand


Why it’s a jolly holiday with Mary
Mary makes your heart so light


Mary Poppins
Oh, really.


Bert
When the day is grey and ordinary

Mary makes the sun shine bright


Mary Poppins:
You do talk nonsense, Bert.


Bert
Oh, 'appiness is blooming all around 'er

The daffodils are smiling at the dove


Mary Poppins:
I haven’t the faintest idea what you’re talking about.


Bert
When Mary holds your 'and


Mary Poppins:
Bert.


Bert
You feel so grand

Your 'eart starts beatin'

Like a big brass band


Mary Poppins:
You’ve got enough brass for all of us.


Bert
Oh, it’s a jolly holiday with Mary

No wonder that it’s Mary that we love

Come along, you two.


Jane & Micheal
Boring, just like other nannies

Thinking parks are good for us

It’s just statues, ducks and grannies

I don’t understand all the fuss


Jane:
Is she doing it to spite us?


Michael:
We could lose her for a lark


Jane:
Perhaps it’s all a plot


Michael:
I’ll tell you what

She seems so different


Jane & Micheal:
But I bet she’s not

There is nothing to excite us

In the park


Jane:
Who are you?


Neleus:
I’m Neleus, and I thought Mary Poppins would never let me get down from this
plinth!


Bert
Ain’t it a glorious day

Right as a morning in May


Neleus:
I feel like I could fly

Have you ever seen

The grass so green?


Mary Poppins:
Oh, Bert.

Or a bluer sky?


Bert & Neleus:
Oh, it’s a jolly holiday with Mary


Bert
Bad days I’ve never known

You can ask the passing statuary


Statues:
Nothing’s ever set in stone


Bert
You’re looking tip-top from top to toe. If I may say so.


Mary Poppins:
Thank you, Bert. And you may.


Statues:
Oh it’s a jolly holiday with Mary

No wonder that it’s Mary that we love


Bert
Oi! Do you think Neleus is lookin' a bit timid today?


Micheal:
No. Why?


Bert
I knew him when he was a little bolder. A little boulder, ha ha!

To see a statue dance like that

You can’t believe your eyes

You fear you’ve lost your marbles

But the thinker thinks you’re wise

So you should hasten, call a mason

Tell him what you’ve seen

If he knows his craft he’ll think you’re daft

But we’ll know what you mean


Male Statues:
Oh it’s a jolly holiday with Mary

No wonder that it’s Mary that we love


Bert
Now Notre Dame can cause alarm

And I’ve me own hunch why

Those gargoyles need to gargle


Cos their throats get rather dry

And just between us, I know Venus Has a vice that shocks She often drinks with a
sphinx who winks It's neat and on the rocks


Statues:
Oh, it’s a jolly holiday with Mary

No wonder that it’s Mary that we love


Bert
Let’s go for jaunty saunter

You are bound to make your mark

Looks like all of you were all born to

Take a promenade in the park

With those finely-chiselled features

You can look down from above

Each man out with his dog would stand agog

To see a statue take a gentle jog


Bert & Statues-
It’s (it's) no (no) wonder that it’s Mary

That (that) we (we) love


Statues:
Love love love

Love love love


Bert
No wonder that it’s Mary that we love


Mary Poppins:
It’s a jolly holiday with you, Bert

Gentlemen like you are few

Though you’re just a diamond in the rough, Bert

Underneath, your blood is blue


Statues:
Your blood is blue


Mary Poppins:
You’d never think of pressing your advantage

Forbearance is the hallmark of your creed

A lady needn’t fear when you are near

Your sweet gentility is crystal clear


Statues:
It’s crystal clear


Mary Poppins & Female Statues:
Oh, it’s a jolly holiday with you, Bert


Mary & Statues:
It’s a jolly holiday


Mary & Statues:
A jolly, jolly holiday with you


Statues:
With you


Jane, Micheal & Female Statues:
Oh it’s a jolly holiday with Mary

Mary makes your heart so light

When the day is grey and ordinary

Mary makes the sun shine bright

Oh happiness is blooming all around her

The daffodils are smiling at the dove


Bert & Male Statues:
Let’s go for jaunty saunter

We are bound to make our mark

Looks like all of us were all born to

Take a promenade in the park

With our finely-chiseled features

We can look down from above


Bert, Jane, Michael & Statues:
When Mary holds your hand

You feel so grand

Your heart starts beating

Like a big brass band


Bert, Jane, Michael & Female Statues:
Oh it’s a jolly holiday with Mary


Male Statues:
It's no wonder that it's Mary that we love


Bert, Jane, Michael & Statues:
No wonder that it’s Mary that we love
