Me Ol' Bam-Boo

by

Dick Van Dyke



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

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. (thanks, Alexander Baron - London, England)
