Let's Go Fly A Kite

Album: Mary Poppins Soundtrack (1964)
  • Telling somebody to go fly a kite can be construed as an insult, but in this song from the fantasy musical Mary Poppins it is an invitation.
    The song, in 6/8 time, was written by the Sherman Brothers Richard and Robert. It is performed by the principal cast at the end of the film as the mysterious nanny takes her leave, initially to the strains of "A Spoonful Of Sugar", and ends the film sung by a choir. >>
