Super...

expialid...
ocious!
That's not a word.
Of course it's a word.
And unless I'm very much mistaken,
I think it's going to prove
a rather useful one.
When trying to express oneself
it's frankly quite absurd
To leap through lengthy lexicons
to find the perfect word
A little spontaneity
keeps conversation keen
You need to find a way to say
precisely what you mean
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-diddle-um-diddle-ay
Um-diddle-diddle-diddle-um-diddle-ay
But it doesn't mean anything!
Um-diddle-diddle-diddle-um-diddle-ay
It can mean exactly what you want it to.
Um-diddle-diddle-diddle-um-diddle-ay
When stone age men were chatting simply
grunting would suffice
Though if they'd heard this word they might
'ave used it once or twice
That's right.
I'm sure Egyptian pharoahs
would have grasped it in a jiff
Then every single pyramid
would bear this heiroglyph
Oh supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Say it and wild animals
would not seem so ferocious
Add some further flourishes
it's so rococcococious
Ah
Ah
Ah ah ah ah
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Um-diddle-diddle-diddle-um-diddle-ay
Um-diddle-diddle-diddle-um-diddle-ay
Um-diddle-diddle-diddle-um-diddle-ay
Um-diddle-diddle-diddle-um-diddle-ay
The druids could have carved it
on their mighty monoliths
Oh, yes.
The Ancient Greeks I'm certain
would have used it in their myths
I'm sure the Roman Empire
only entered the abyss
Because those Latin scholars
never had a word like this
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
If you say it softly
the effect can be hypnotious
Check your breath before you speak
in case it's halitotious
Oh, Bert!
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Um-diddle-diddle-diddle-um-diddle-ay
Um-diddle-diddle-diddle-um-diddle-ay
Um-diddle-diddle-diddle-um-diddle-ay
Um-diddle-diddle-diddle-um-diddle-ay
Of course, you can say it backwards,
which is suoicodilaipxecitsiligarfilacrepus.
She may be tricky,
but she's bloody good.
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
Just pick out those eighteen consonants
and sixteen vowels as well
And put them in an order which is very 'ard to spell

Even though the sound of it

If you say it loud enough
you'll always sound precocious
