Aeroplane Jelly Song

Words and music by
Albert Francis Lenertz
(1891 – 1943)

This is the longest running advertising jingle in Australian history. The reason Aeroplane Jelly won the hearts of Aussies is because of the cute jingle and the little girl who sings it.

It was first heard in a 1938 radio commercial and has since become part of Australian culture, as the song continues to bring smiles to young and old alike.

For you yanks, our jelly is what you call jello in the USA.

I’ve got a song that won’t take very long,
Quite a good sort of note if I strike it . . .
It is something we eat, and I think it’s quite sweet,
And I know you are going to like it.

I like Aeroplane Jelly
Aeroplane Jelly for me.

I like it for dinner, I like it for tea,
A little each day is a good recipe,
The quality’s high as the name will imply,
And it’s made from pure fruits, one more good reason why

I like Aeroplane Jelly
Aeroplane Jelly for me.
