Hum along with us, friends:
‘ Those magnificent bears in their flying machines,
They go up, tiddly up, up ..”
‘They come down, tiddly, down ..
Ouch! .. down, down’.
They enchant all the watchers,
And steal all the scenes,
Those birds and those bears,
With their wings and machines.’
” Oh those bears and those birds,
Who soar in the air ..”
.. ‘They don’t think of danger,
They don’t really care.’
‘They feel at home,
High up in the sky.
How wonderful to be,
Birds and bears who can fly.’
And here are our brave aviators: Flyer Bear and his magnificent machine, Miss Crested with her stunt plane, BeeBear and the daredevil Corella Twins. In our next soaring adventure BeeBear and Flyer Bear will bring you their own version of ‘Snoopy’s Christmas’. Look out for that one!
Acknowledgment: the original song, Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines, was written by Lorranine Williams and Ron Goodwin and was the theme of the 1960s movie of the same name.
