: Whats the meaning of the words 'supercalifrajalistic' and 'espialidosious'?

It's a song from the musical Mary Poppins.

"Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"
Written by Richard M. and Robert B. Sherman

[Mary:] Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious.
If you say it loud enough, you'll always sound precocious.
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

[Pearlies:] Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay!
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay!

[Bert:] Because I was afraid to speak when I was just a lad,
My father gave me nose a tweak and told me I was bad.
But then one day I learned a word that saved me achin' nose,

[Bert and Mary:] The biggest word you ever 'eard and this is how it goes:

[All:] Oh, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious.
If you say it loud enough, you'll always sound precocious.
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

[Pearlies:] Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay!
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay!

[Mary:] He travelled all around the world and ev'rywhere he went
He'd use his word and all would say, "There goes a clever gent!"

[Bert:] When dukes and ma'arajas pass the time of day with me,

[Bert and Mary:] I say me special word and then they ask me out to tea.

[All:] Oh, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious.
If you say it loud enough, you'll always sound precocious.
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

[Pearlies:] Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay!
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay!

[Mary:] So when the cat has got your tongue, there's no need for dismay,
Just summon up this word and then you've got a lot to say.
But better use it carefully or it can change your life

[Pearlie:] One night I said it to me girl and now me girl's my wife!

[All:] She's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
