Mary Poppins Lost Song To Be Finally Released

A lost song from WALT DISNEY movie MARY POPPINS will be released for the first time after bosses recovered it from the company's archives.

The musical's co-composer RICHARD SHERMAN has revived the tune CHIMPANZOO, which exposes the darker side of the eponymous nanny played by OSCAR-winning actress JULIE ANDREWS in the 1964 hit movie.

The song, written by Sherman and his brother ROBERT, was intended to accompany a missing sequence focusing on Poppins as she threatens to put children JANE and MICHAEL into a human zoo if they continue to "laugh like hyenas" with UNCLE ALBERT and the chimney sweeper BERT, played by DICK VAN DYKE.

Disney cut the song from the movie after deciding it was too long and was misplaced in a musical filled with uplifting tunes.
