Times are tight, just ask Mary Poppins.

Poppins may be a magical nanny, but that isn’t going to get her paid – and she’s fed up.  In a new Funny or Die video,  Kristen Bell plays Mary Poppins, who sings about how her minimum wage nanny gig isn’t cutting it in today’s economy.

Bell replaces the iconic “Just a Spoonful of Sugar” lyrics with “Just a three-dollar increase can make a living wage…”  She explains to the banks children that, “In every job that must be done, you must be paid in more than fun. ”

We already knew Bell had the chops after voicing Anna’s character in Frozen, but this is just supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

Check out the video here.
