The Perfect Nanny Lyrics

    Wanted a nanny for two adorable children

    If you want this choice position
    Have a cheery disposition
    Rosy cheeks, no warts!
    Play games, all sort

    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

    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

    Jane and Michael Banks
