Kristen Bell plays an underpaid Mary Poppins in Funny or Die parody

Mary Poppins might be practically perfect in every way, but that doesn't mean she's well-paid.

In a new parody video from Funny or Die, Kristen Bell plays a fed-up version of the Disney character who is quitting her job with the Banks family because the gig doesn't give her enough money to live on.

Bell, who previously showcased her impressive pipes in the animated hit "Frozen," sings a song to the tune of "A Spoonful of Sugar" about living below the poverty line and why the government should raise the federal minimum wage.

Like in the 1964 film version of "Mary Poppins" with Julie Andrews, animated penguins make a cameo and there are even a few birds on hand. But the best part might be when Poppins opens up her famous umbrella, finds that it's broken and declares it "supercalifragilisticexpialibulls-t."
