"Fidelity Fiduciary Bank" is a song from the film Mary Poppins which was composed by the Sherman Brothers. It is sung by George Banks, the bank officers, Mr. Dawes Sr., and Mr. Dawes Jr.

The song is also heard in Saving Mr. Banks, where the Sherman Brothers sing a demo of it to P. L. Travers, who, at the same time, is having a flashback to her father making a speech at a local fair about children opening bank accounts of their own, his words were interspersed with the lyrics.

An instrumental version of the song can be heard during the final bank scene in Mary Poppins Returns.


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

George 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., George Banks, and Bank Officers:
Tuppence, prudently, fruitfully
Frugally invested in the
To be specific in the Dawes Tomes Mousely Grubbs
Fidelity Fiduciary Bank

George Banks: Now, Michael.

When you deposit tuppence
In a bank account
Soon you'll see
That it blooms into credit of a generous amount

Mr. Dawes Sr., George 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

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.
George Banks: You see, Michael, all for the lack of...

George Banks, Mr. Dawes Sr., and Bank Officers:
Tuppence, patiently
Cautiously, trustingly invested
In the, to be specific, in the
Dawes Tomes Mousely Grubbs
Fidelity Fiduciary Bank
