"Practically Perfect" is a deleted song from the film, Mary Poppins. It was to share the same tune as Sister Suffragette.

Lyrics from the Broadway Musical

Mary Poppins: By the time the wind has blown
The weather vane around
I’ll show you, if I can
No matter what the circumstance
For one thing I’m renown
My character is spit-spot spick and span

I’m practically perfect
In every way

Jane: Practically perfect?
Mary Poppins: So people say

Each virtue virtually knows no bound
Each trait is great and patently sound

I’m practically perfect from head to toe
If I had a fault it would never dare to show
I’m so practically perfect
In every way

Both prim and proper and never too stern
Well-educated yet willing to learn
I’m clean and honest, my manner refined
And I wear shoes of the sensible kind

I suffer no nonsense and whilst I remain
There’s nothing else I feel I need explain

I’m practically perfect in every way
Practically perfect, that’s my forte
Uncanny nannies are hard to find
Unique, yet meek, unspeakably kind
