"The Royal Doulton Music Hall" is a song sung by Jack and Mary Poppins in the film Mary Poppins Returns. It is sung during the sequence where Mary, Jack, and the children end up in an animated sequence in the jar where all the inhabitants are anthropomorphic animals.


  And where would we all like to go on this fine, fine day?

Mary Poppins:
  The Royal Doulton Music Hall, please.


  What's that?

Mary Poppins:
  We're on the brink of an adventure, children. Don't spoil it with too many questions.
In the nursery, you were never by yourself
There was quite another world upon your shelf

  Hold on!

Mary Poppins:
Where each day crowds make their way upon the sun's descent
To a mythical, mystical, never quite logistical tent

Yes, in this dilly dynamical, simply ceramical Royal Doulton Bowl
There's a cuddly and curious, furry and furious animal watering hole
Where the monkeys and hummingbirds know the tunes and the words
Every beast, large and small

Loves the very top drawable
Always encorable
Royal Doulton Music Hall

  Ooh, that one tickled my tail. Nearly there, Mary Poppins!

Mary Poppins, Jack:
Yes, in this marvelous, mystical rather sophistical
Royal Doulton Bowl

There's a lotta birds cuein' up, a lotta hams chewin' up
Scenery they swallow whole
There are lotsa cats tuning strings

Mary Poppins:
Nightingales in the wings

Mary Poppins, Jack:
Waiting for their big drum roll

At the simply sensational

Mary Poppins:
Standing ovational

Mary Poppins, Jack:
Royal Doulton

Mary Poppins, Jack, Georgie, John, Annabel:
Music Hall

  Here we are!

  But where's the music hall?

Mary Poppins:
  Oh, yes. That. Silly me.

  Step right up! Step right up!

John, Georgie, Annabel:
  Wow! Goodness!

  How on earth did she do that?

  One thing you should know about Mary Poppins. She never explains anything.

  Hurry! Hurry! Get tickets while you can for the one-night-only, one and only... Mary Poppins! What an honor it is to have you join us this evening.

Mary Poppins:
Thank you.

  And who is this I see? Why, it's John, Annabel and Georgie Banks.

  You know us?

  Of course! Everyone knows the Banks children. Hurry along now. Get yourself some peanuts and candy floss and go right on in!

  May we, Mary Poppins?

Mary Poppins:
  Yes. Just keep away from the edge of the bowl.

At the highly acclaimable, nearly untamable
Lavishing praisable, always roof-raisable
Royal Doulton Music Hall!



  • According to the audio commentary exclusive to digital platforms by Rob Marshall and John DeLuca, one of the ideas the two had was to have Mary, Jack, John, Annabel, and Georgie being transported to the Royal Doulton bowl via whip since they cannot jump into the animated sequence unlike in the previous film to which according to DeLuca himself, he was dissatisfied of the whip idea as the whip was deemed too violent and it was instead replaced by the magical leaves which surrounded the group and transported them to the animated sequence. This was done to avoid a higher age rating.[1]
  • Prior to the song being included in the final version, it was originally a deleted song titled "The Anthropomorphic Zoo", which still featured, Mary, Jack, John, Annabel, and Georgie being transported to the animated world which was sung by Marc Shaiman. The song was deleted in the final version and was replaced was replaced by "The Royal Doulton Music Hall".[2]
