"The Land of Sand" is a deleted song from Mary Poppins. It was replaced by "Stay Awake" in the final cut, and later rewritten as "Trust in Me" for the animated version of The Jungle Book.

Here in the land of sand

Nothing is what it seems

Visions may be real

And the real things may be dreams

Secrets of all the ages hide in these sands of time

Here where the story of man began

All be wise and beware

What you see may not be there

Dreams can slip through your hand

In the land of sand
