About Let's Go Fly a Kite

"Let's Go Fly a Kite" is a song from Walt Disney's film Mary Poppins, composed by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman. This song is heard at the end of the film when George Banks (played by David Tomlinson), realizes that his family is more important than his job. He mends his son's kite and takes his family on a kite-flying outing. The song is sung by Tomlinson, Dick Van Dyke and eventually the entire chorus. In keeping with Mr Banks's change in character, this song was pre-recorded, and thus sung normally, by Tomlinson, rather than in his previous talk-singing in the Rex Harrison style, seen earlier in "The Life I Lead. " This musical number also appears in the Sing Along Songs series of Disney videos.

With tuppence for paper and strings
You can have your own set of wings
With your feet on the ground, you're a bird in flight
With your fist holding tight
To the string of your kite

Oh, let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height
Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let's go fly a kite

When you send it flyin' up there
All at once you're lighter than air
You can dance on the breeze
Over Alpses and trees
With your fist holdin' tight
To the string of your kite

Oh, let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height
Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let's go fly a kite
