The Perfect Nanny Lyrics

Jane (spoken): Wanted a nanny for two adorable children
If you want this choice position
Have a cheery disposition
Rosy cheeks, no warts
Michael: That’s the part I put in

Jane: Play games, all sorts
You must be kind, you must be witty
Very sweet and fairly pretty
Take us on outings, give us treats
Sing songs, bring sweets

Never be cross or cruel
Never give us castor oil or gruel
Love us as a son and daughter
And never smell of barley water
Michael : I put that in, too

Jane: If you won’t scold and dominate us
We will never give you cause to hate us

We won’t hide your spectacles
So you can’t see
Put toads in your bed
Or pepper in your tea
Hurry, Nanny!
Many thanks
Sincerely,
Jane and Michael: Jane and Michael Banks.
