A man has dreams of walking with giants
To carve his name in the edifice of time
Before the mortar of his zeal has a chance to congeal
The cup is dashed from his lips
The flame is snuffed aborning
He's brought to rack and ruin in his prime

My world was calm, well ordered, exemplary
Then came this person with chaos in her wake
And now my life's ambitions go with one fell blow
It's quite a bitter pill to take

It's that Poppins woman
She did it!
She tricked me into taking Jane and Michael to the bank
That's how all the trouble started

Tricked you into taking the children on an outing?
Outrageous!
A man with all the important things you have to do
Shameful!

You're a man of high position
Esteemed by your peers
And when your little tykes are crying
You haven't time to dry their tears
And see their grateful little faces
Smiling up at you
Because their dad, he always knows
Just what to do
You've got to grind, grind, grind at that grindstone
Though childhood slips like sand through a seive
And all too soon they've up and grown
And then they've flown
And it's too late for you to give
Just that spoonful of sugar
To help the medicine go down
The medicine go down, the medicine go down
Just that spoonful of sugar
To help the medicine go down
In a most delightful way
