K is for Keith and Kite

April is a busy moth for me. Shermanically speaking I have 26 songs and videos to put out for the A to Z challenge. It is often Easter, It is a busy month for our home school co-op and at the 2 church youth groups I work at. It is also the month of my wedding anniversary and the month my youngest brother died. The latter happened 10 years ago this month. For what ever reason I link the song Let’s go Fly A kite with Keith. I can remember him singing it. Keith is one of the few people who ever sang worse than I do so if you heard him sing it you’d probably remember too. I remember going Kite Flying on Easter Sundaya few days after he died. I took my 3 kids and Keith’s 2 kids and remember thinking that He would never be able to take his kids kite flying again. Shortly after that I wrote this.

Which brings us to our Sherman song of the day. Let’s go Fly a Kite.

Mr. Banks: 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 a flight,

With your fist holding tight, To the string of your kite.

Oh, oh, 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!

Bert: When you send it flyin’ up there,

All at once you’re lighter than air.

You can dance on the breeze Over ‘ouses and trees,

With your first ‘olding tight, To the string of your kite

Londoners: Oh, oh, 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!

  1. This was a great scene, watching David Tomlinson dancing around after being such an old stick-in-the-mud through most of the movie. Matthew Garber was born the same day I was, but he only made it to 21.
