Winnie The Pooh
Lyrics & Music by: Richard M. Sherman, Robert B. Sherman

Deep in the Hundred Acre Wood
Where Christopher Robin plays
You'll find the enchanted neighborhood
Of Christopher's childhood days

A donkey named Eeyore is his friend
And Kanga and little Roo
There's Rabbit and Piglet and there's Owl
But most of all Winnie the Pooh

Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh
Tubby little cubby
All stuffed with fluff

He's Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh
Willy nilly silly old bear

Performed by Carly Simon with Ben Taylor

If I Wasn't So Small
Lyrics & Music by: Carly Simon

It's not as if I want to rule the world
Or even the forest
Or even one tree
I suppose I could be happy
If I could be helpful
With just a little bit of noticing me

If I wasn't so small
I could be like Tigger
Figure out ways to help
some of those in need
Indeed I could volunteer
As the friend that you would want right near
More like Rabbit and Pooh and Eeyore
I'd be useful and helpful
The one you would call

Can I walk around my shadow
Once before it disappears into the sun
Run circles around the bees
Bring the heffalump to his knees
Catch the pollen before the sneeze

I'd be needed and useful
More each passing day
I may be small
But in the biggest, helpful-lest way

Performed by Carly Simon
Produced by Carly Simon and Rob Mathes

Mother's Intuition
Lyrics & Music by Carly Simon

It's a mother's intuition
To make a little space
It's her quiet mission to tidy up her place
A mother's intuition is like a kangaroo's
She hops around, she mops the ground
She fusses over you
A mother
With her intuition
Will know just what to do

It's a mother's intuition to wash her baby
Well she won't forget behind the ears
And the extra soap suds on the tail
A mother's into cleaning
She'll clean until she's through
She's smart enough
She's wise enough
To add up two and two
A mother
With her intuition
Will know just what to do

A mother has a feeling
She pays special attention
If someone is concealing
If someone's playing tricks
She rubs and scrubs and scours the secrets
Until the answer clicks
Then she takes a brush
And polishes your teeth
She'll make you shine and sparkle new
Until she finds the real you
Underneath

Isn't it charming?
Just mommy and little Roo
Fresh as a daisy
Sparkling just like new
It's a mother's intuition
It's a mother's intuition
It's a mother's intuition

Sing Ho For The Life Of A Bear
Lyrics & Music by: Carly Simon

Sing ho for the life of a bear
Sing ho for the expedition
Sing ho for the life of a bear
Sing ho for the expedition

It's a fine day for marchin'
There's a tiny little breeze
And when there's honey for the makin'
There's a buzz among the bees

Sing ho for the life of a bear
Sing ho for the expedition
Sing ho for the life of a bear
Sing ho for the expedition

I'm itchin' and scratchin'
And scratchin' and itchin'
To fine the North Pole
Finding the Pole may be the goal
But it's drummin' for funnin' that makes you

Sing ho for the life of a bear
Sing ho for the expedition
Sing ho for the life of a bear
Sing ho for the expedition

Performed by Carly Simon with:
Jim Cummings as Winnie The Pooh and Tigger
Ken Samson as Rabbit
Kath Soucie as Kanga and Christopher Robin
Nikita Hopkins as Roo
Peter Cullen as Eeoyre

The More It Snows
Lyrics & Music by: Carly Simon

The more it snows
Tiddely-Pom
The more it goes
Tiddely-Pom

The more it goes on snowing
Tiddely-Pom

And nobody knows
Tiddely-Pom
How cold my toes
Tiddely-Pom

How cold my toes are growing
Tiddely-Pom
Tiddely-Pom
Tiddely-Pom
Tiddely-Pom

Performed by Jim Cummings as Winnie The Pooh

Comforting To Know
Lyrics & Music by: Carly Simon

When the heart of the hundred acre wood is beating
And time is passing through
There's a shadow looking like a rainbows halo
And there I'm resembling you

More than fame
A name on a tree
More than power or might
Sweeter than the treats of a honey bee
I'll be here through the night

It's comforting to know
It's comforting to know

Silent as the moon at dawn
Soothing as a bed filled with hay
Strong as a hero in the land of old
I'll be here through the day

It's comforting to know
It's comforting to know

Grayer than gloom on a rainy afternoon
Sadder than being sorry for me
Finer than finding my tail again
I'll be here for all of thee

It's comforting to know
It's comforting to know

You only get a few good friends in this life
Who are devoted and true
And right here in this now and near
It's clear that it's all of you

I'll find you when you're hard to see
I'll look for you everywhere
You'll know just how I'm feeling when
I show you that I care

It's comforting to know
It's so comforting to know

With A Few Good Friends
Lyrics & Music by: Carly Simon , Brian Hohlfeld

With a few good friends
And a stick or two
A house is built at a corner called Pooh
With a friend and a stick
Or three or four
A house is built where it wasn't before

With a window here
And there a door
And a nail and peg
For the coat of Eeyore

With a few good friends
And a stick or two
A house is built at a corner called Pooh
With a friend and a stick
Or three or four
A house is built where it wasn't before

Dress it down
Or dress it up
Invite Tigger for tea
And Owl for supper

With a few good friends
And a stick or two
A house is built at a corner called Pooh
With a friend and a stick
Or three or four
A house is built where it wasn't before

With a few good friends………. repeat and fade

The More I Look Inside
Lyrics & Music by: Carly Simon

The more I look inside
The more he isn't there
What am I supposed to do?
When Piglet is not everywhere

The more I wrack my brain
The more I search in vain
I guess I'll have a little snack
And wait for it to start to rain

Maybe I will draw a picture
And while I'm busy doing that
My mind will wander off somewhere
And Piglet will re-appear
My mind will wander off somewhere
And Piglet will be right here

The more I look inside
The more you're real to me
I see you here, I see you there
Feel you everywhere

Performed by Carly Simon
Produced by Carly Simon and Rob Mathes
Medley Arranged by Doug Besterman and Michael Skloff
