Sherman Brothers A to Z: C is for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

#AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary blogging from A to Z challenge letter


Time once again for the A to Z Challenge. Today we have the title tune from the 1968 film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Here are the lyrics:

Chitty Bang Bang, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Chitty Bang Bang, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Chitty Bang Bang, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Oh you pretty Chitty Bang Bang, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, We love you.


And, in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, What we’ll do.

Near, far, in our motor car, Oh what a happy time we’ll spend.

Bang Bang Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Our fine four fendered friend.

Bang Bang Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Our fine four fendered friend.


Chitty Bang Bang, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Chitty Bang Bang, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Chitty Bang Bang, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Oh you pretty Chitty Bang Bang, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, We love you.

And, in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, What we’ll do.

Near, far, in our motor car, Oh what a happy time we’ll spend.

Bang Bang Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Our fine four fendered friend.

Bang Bang Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Our fine four fendered friend.

Your sleek as a thoroughbred. Your seats are a feather bed. You’ll turn everybody’s head today.


We’ll glide on our motor trip, With pride in our ownership, The envy of all we survey.


Oh Chitty You Chitty Pretty Chitty Bang Bang, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang We love you.

And Chitty, in Chitty Pretty Chitty Bang Bang, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang what we’ll do.

Near Chitty, far Chitty, in our motor car, Oh what a happy time we’ll spend.


Bang Bang Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Our fine four fendered friend.

Bang Bang Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Our fine four fendered friend…..

(hold) Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Fine four fendered Chitty Chitty friend.

  1. I remember seeing this movie at a theater which no longer exists. I wanted a flying car. Lol. Though the kid catcher was scary.
