“Chim Chim Cher-ee” is a song from the 1964 Disney musical film “Mary Poppins“. The song was composed by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, and was performed in the film by the character Bert, played by Dick Van Dyke.
The song is a cheerful and whimsical tune that expresses Bert’s joy and love for his job as a chimney sweep in Victorian London. The lyrics describe the sights and sounds of London from the perspective of a chimney sweep, including the sounds of the chimneys, the fog in the air, and the views of the city from high up on the rooftops. The melody is accompanied by a memorable whistle motif, and is further embellished with playful harmonies, orchestration, and rhythm.
“Chim Chim Cher-ee” won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1965, and has since become one of the most recognizable and beloved songs from the Disney catalog. The song has been covered by numerous artists and has been featured in various films and TV shows, including a cameo in the Disney live-action film “Saving Mr. Banks” (2013), which depicted the making of “Mary Poppins”.
