"Fidelity Fiduciary Bank" is a song from the 1964 Disney film Marry Poppins. It features the banker Mr. Dawes Sr. and his bankers as they try to convince Michael Banks to invest in their bank.

The song was performed by Mr. Dawes Sr.'s actor Dick Van Dyke, Mr. Dawes Jr.'s actor the late Arthur Malet, Mr. Banks' actor the late David Tomlinson, and a chorus as the other bankers.

LyricsEdit

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

You see, Michael, you'll be part of railways through Africa
(Exactly!)
Dams across the Nile
(The ships! Tell them about the ships!)
Fleets of ocean Greyhounds
(More, tell them more!)
Majestic, self-amortizing canals
(Oh, it ripens the imagination!)
Plantations of ripening tea

All from tuppence, prudently fruitfully, frugally invested
In the, to be specific
In the Dawes, Tomes, Mousely, Grubbs
Fidelity fiduciary bank

Now Michael, when you deposit tuppence in a bank account
Soon you'll see

That it blooms into credit of a generous amount
Semiannually

And you'll achieve that sense of stature
As your influence expands
To the high financial strata
That established credit, now commands

You can purchase first and second trust deeds
Think of the foreclosures
Bonds! Chattels! Dividends! Shares
Bankruptcies! Debtor sales! Opportunities

All manner of private enterprise
Shipyards! The mercantile
Collieries! Tanneries
Incorporations! Amalgamations! Banks

You see Michael, tuppence, patiently, cautiously trustingly invested
In the, to be specific
In the Dawes, Tomes, Mousely, Grubbs
Fidelity Fiduciary Bank
