Song from The Jungle Book Movie 1967

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!

 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

The Bare Necessities (Reprise)

 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
 With just the bare necessities of life
