Supercalifragilisticexpialidocius

This is a fun kid's song from the movie "Mary Poppins". Nearly everyone has heard it and can sing at least the chorus. It is in the key of C and stays in first position on the Erhu. Sorry that I didn't put in the timing in the ASCII score. You can hear the song for yourself by listening to the midi file:

[Super.mid]

I've also include an attempt at writing out the bass line from the midi score. This might make a nice accompaniment on the Zhong Hu or Cello.


Erhu  C(2,6)

4/4 ||: 5 5 555555                | 5555 ||
         Um diddle diddle diddle, um diddle ay
         Um diddle diddle diddle, um diddle ay

REPEAT TO HERE:

         3 5 5 5 | 6 5 5 3       | 5 5 6 5      | 5 - 4 0 |
         Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
         5 5 5 5 | 6 5 0 5 2, | 5 5 6 5 | 5 - 3 0 |
         Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious
         5 5 5 5 | 6 5 5 5       | 1 0 1 2 1 | 1 - 6    |
         If you say it loud enough, you'll always sound precocious.
         6 1 7 6 | 1 5 5 3       | 5 #5 6 7 | 1  1 |
         Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

         Um diddle diddle, um diddle ay
         Um diddle diddle, um diddle ay

         3 5 5 5 | 6 5 5 3       | 5 5 6 5      | 4 - - 5 |
         Because I was afraid to speak When I was just a lad
         5 5 5 5 | 6 5 0 5 2, | 5 5 6 5 | 3 - 5 0 |
         My father gave my nose a tweak And told me I was bad
         5 5 5 5 | 6 5 5 5       | 1 0 1 2 1 | 6 - 6    |
         But then one day I learned a new word That saved me achin' nose
                                                                                 tr
         6 6 6 6 | 7 6 6 6       | 2 1 7 6      | 5 5     |
         The biggest word you ever heard And this is how it goes:


-----------------------------------

Um diddle diddle, um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle, um diddle ay

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough, you'll always sound precocious.
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Um diddle diddle, um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle, um diddle ay

Because I was afraid to speak When I was just a lad
My father gave my nose a tweak And told me I was bad
But then one day I learned a new word That saved me achin' nose
The biggest word you ever heard And this is how it goes:

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough, you'll always sound precocious.
Supercalifragilisticexpialidociuos!
BRIDGE:
         Um diddle diddle, um diddle ay
         Um diddle diddle, um diddle ay

He traveled all around the world and everywhere he went
He'd use his word and all would say, "There goes a clever gent"
When dukes and maharajas pass the time of day with me
I say my special word and then They ask me out to tea! oh!

CHORUS:
         Supercalifragilisticexpialidociuos
         Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious
         If you say it loud enough, you'll always sound precocious
         Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Um diddle diddle, um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle, um diddle ay

So when the cat has got your tongue There's no need for dismay
Just summon up this word And then you've got a lot to say
But better use it carefully or it might change your life
One night I said it to a girl and now she is my wife!

She's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough, you'll always sound precocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
