    Re: Meaning of "up we go!"

    "Up we go!" is used in a couple of situations. When one is assisting the young or an invalid to get up or stand up, or when lifting someone to a higher point, this expression is often heard. It simply means, "we (together) are moving upwards" (medical workers often say "we" when they mean "you"). One reason for saying "up we go" would be to warn the person of the impending motion.

    The expression is also encountered when two or more people together rise rapidly in elevation, such as in an airplane takeoff, an elevator (lift), paragliding , a carnival ride, the start of a steep uphill road, etc. It states the obvious somewhat but that's how it's used.

    The U.S. Air Force official song begins, "Up we go, into the wild blue yonder."
