Land of Sand

"The Land of Sand" is a song that was written by the Sherman Brothers originally for the 1964 musical film, "Mary Poppins". The song was later discarded as the Shermans' original screenplay treatment was revised and adapted into the final draft Oscar nominated screenplay by Bill Walsh and Don DaGradi.

The Jungle Book

Two years later, in 1965, the Sherman Brothers were called upon to write songs for "The Jungle Book". The lyric for the "Land of Sand" was scrapped and in its place the Shermans wrote the lyric for "Trust in Me", melody intact.
