Lyrics from the Jungle Book

"My Own Home"

"Colonel Hathi's March"
"Trust in Me"
"That's What Friends Are For"
"The Bare Necessities"


My Own Home
My Own Home, my own home
My Own Home, my own home

Father's hunting in the forest
Mother's cooking in the home
I must go to fetch the water
Till the day I am grown
Till I'm grown, till I'm grown
I must go fetch the water
Till the day that I am grown

Then I will have a handsome husband
And a daughter of my own
And I'll send her to fetch the water
I'll be cooking in the home

Then I'll send her to fetch the water
I'll be cooking in the home


I Wan'na Be Like You
Now I'm the king of the swingers
Oh, the Jungle VIP
I've reached the top and had to stop
And that's what's been botherin' me
I wan'na be a man, mancub
And stroll right into town
And be just like the other men
I'm tired of the monkeyin' around

Oh, oobee doo
I wan'na be like you
I wan'na walk like you
Talk like you, too
You'll see it's true
An ape like me
Can learn to be human, too

Now, don't try to kid me, mancub
I made a deal with you
What I desire is man's red fire
To make my dream come true
Now, give me the secret, mancub
Come on, clue me what to do
Give me the power of man's red flow'r
So I can be like you

You!
I wan'na be like you
I wan'na walk like you
Talk like you, too
You'll see it's true
Someone like me
Can learn to be
Like someone like me
(Take me home daddy)
Can learn to be
Like someone like you
(One more time, yeah!)
Can learn to be
Like someone like me!


Colonel Hathi's March
Hup two three four
Keep it up, two three four
Hup two three four
Keep it up, two three four
Company, Sound off!

Oh, the aim of our patrol
Is a question rather droll
For to march and drill
Over field and hill
Is a military goal
Is a military goal

Hup two three four
Dress it up, two three four

By the ranks or single file
O'er every jungle mile
Oh, we stamp and crush
Through the underbrush
In a military style
In a military style

Hup two three four
Keep it up, two three four


Trust in Me
Trust in me, just in me
Shut your eyes and trust in me
Hold still please
You can sleep safe and sound
Knowing I am around

Slip into silent slumber
Sail on a silver mist
Slowly and surely your senses
Will cease to resist

Trust in me, just in me
Shut your eyes, trust in me


That's What Friends Are For
We're your friends, we're your friends
We're your friends to the bitter end (the bitter end)

When you're alone (when your alone)
Who comes around (who comes around)
To pluck you up (to pluck you up)
When you are down (when you are down)
And, when you're outside lookin' in
Who's there to open the door?
That's (that's) what (what) friends are for

Who's always eager to extend
A friedly claw?
That's what friends are for

And when you're lost
In dire need, who's at your side
At lightning speed?
We're friends with every creature comin' down the pike
In fact, we've never met an animal we didn't like
Didn't like

So you can see (so you can see)
We're friends in need (we're friends in need)
And friends in need (friends in need)
Are friends indeed (are friends indeed)
We'll keep you safe in the jungle, forevermore
That's what friends are for!


The Bare Necessities
Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature's recipes
That brings the bare necessities of life

Wherever I wander, wherever I roam
I couldn't be fonder of my big home
The bees are buzzin' in the tree
To make some honey just for me
When you look under the rocks and plants
And take a glance at the fancy ants
Then maybe try a few
The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you!

Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
That's why a bear can rest at ease
With just the bare necessities of life

Now when you pick a pawpaw
Or a prickly pear
And you prick a raw paw
Next time beware
Don't pick the prickly pear by the paw
When you pick a pear
Try to use the claw
But you don't need to use the claw
When you pick a pear of the big pawpaw
Have I given you a clue?
The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you!

Yeah! This is really livin'!
So just try and relax, yeah cool it
Fall apart in my backyard
'Cause let me tell you something little britches
If you act like that bee acts, uh uh
You're working too hard
And don't spend your time lookin' around
For something you want that can't be found
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinkin' about it
I'll tell you something true
The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you
