    'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' composer, 86, dies

    'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' composer dies
    LONDON (AP) How do you sum up the work of songwriter Robert B. Sherman? Try one word: "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."

    The tongue-twisting term, sung by magical nanny Mary Poppins, is like much of Sherman's work both complex and instantly memorable, for child and adult alike. Once heard, it was never forgotten.

    Sherman, an American who died in London at age 86, was half of a sibling partnership that put songs into the mouths of nannies and Cockney chimney sweeps, jungle animals and Parisian felines.

    Robert Sherman and his brother Richard composed scores for films including "The Jungle Book," ''The Aristocats," ''Mary Poppins" and "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang." They also wrote the most-played tune on Earth, "It's a Small World (After All)."

    At first, I thought we were talking about Bobby Sherman- different Robert Sherman! Still sad, though. Mary Poppins was the first movie I ever saw, and I still own the album!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.
