Album: Chitty Chitty Bang BangReleased: 1968
The title of this song can also be rendered "Me Ole Bamboo". As might be expected this is a none too serious number. Like the rest of the songs from the 1968 film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
it was written by the Sherman Brothers. The bamboo concerned is a prop used for a well choreographed routine in which Dick Van Dyke in the lead role of Caractacus Potts heads a male chorus dancing with long canes in a fair ground scene.
