Fly Kite Fly

words Matt Ralph /Elle Dawe music matt ralph © Matt Ralph/ Elle Dawe 2008

Today I made a bright yellow kite,

With sticks and paper and strings,

With a long pink tail,

Ribbons to make it sail,

All we need now is some wind,

To sail my kite up high,

To sail it up in the sky,

With the birds and the clouds and the sun shining down,

Fly kite fly,

Fly kite fly,

Fly kite fly,

Fly kite fly,

I took it to the park with my sister,

She blew it like a balloon,

But all it did was flitter and flutter,

We needed the wind to come soon,

To sail my kite up high,

To sail it up in the sky,

With the birds and the clouds and the sun shining down,

Fly kite fly,

Fly kite fly,

Fly kite fly,

Fly kite fly,

Sally my dog caught the string on her tail,

She raced all around til the kite set sail,

We danced around as the kite dipped and dived,

She ran and she ran and the kite it was high,

It sailed my kite up high,

Sailed it up to the sky,

With the birds and the clouds and the sun shining down,

Fly kite fly,

Fly kite fly,

Fly kite fly,

Fly kite fly,
