Temper Temper is a song from the Mary Poppins stage production! It is sung by the toys of Jane and Michael Banks. The song has been deemed so scary that it has been cut from the production!


LYRICS

[JANE] What’s happening? I don’t understand!

[VALENTINE] I’m sure you don’t, Jane. You and Michael think you have nothing to learn but you don’t understand the simplest things.

[MICHAEL] Why are you all so big?

[WILLIAM] You'll find out.

[VALENTINE] Children who lose their temper will lose everything else in the end.

[TOYS] Temper, temper Temper, temper Temper, temper Temper, temper Temper, temper Temper, temper Temper, temper Temper, temper Temper, temper

[VALENTINE] Temper, temper Caught you at last Your quick temper Went a bit fast This is a place of woe

[TOYS] This is a place of woe

[VALENTINE] This a place where all

[TOYS] Wicked children go

[MICHAEL] But this is our nursery!

[VALENTINE] No, this is *our* nursery.

[TOYS] Temper, temper, that was your crime We’ve been watching you for some time We knew that you'd appear (That you'd appear) We knew your temper tantrums would lead you here

[JANE] Stop! Leave us alone!

[WILLIAM] Pray silence for the judge!

[MICHAEL] What judge?

[WILLIAM] All rise.

[MR PUNCH] Temper, temper, silence in court Is this not the story you thought? You have to stand on trial

[TOYS] Stand on trial

[MR PUNCH] You will not see your parents For quite some time

[VALENTINE & WILLIAM] Children who refuse to learn

[TOYS] Will not return Children who refuse to learn Will not return

[MR PUNCH] Are you Jane and Michael Banks?

[JANE] Yes, and we live at Seventeen Cherry Tree Lane.

[MONKEY 1] Not anymore, you don’t. You’re at destiny’s crossroads.

[VALENTINE] Call the first witness!

[MONKEYS] Call the first witness!

[WILLIAM] Call the first witness!

[DOLL] Temper, temper, think of the cost Of a temper, once it’s been lost You cannot get it back

[DOLL] It’s no excuse to say

[TOYS] That your mood was black

[VALENTINE] Call the surprise witness!

[MONKEYS] Call the surprise witness!

[WILLIAM] Call the surprise witness!

[JACK-IN-A-BOX] Surprise! Yes, I saw them, your Honour. They were fighting over Valentine.

[JACK-IN-A-BOX] And… And tore his arm! Again!

[TOYS] Children who refuse to learn Will not return
