The Bare Necessities

Jungle Book

     Look for the bare necessities, the simple bare necessities
     Forget about your worry and your strife 
     I mean the bare necessities or Mother Nature's recipes
     That bring 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
 You look under the rocks and plants
And take a glance at the fancy ants, and maybe try a few
The bare necessities of life will come to you, they'll come to you


When you pick a paw-paw or prickly pear and you prick a raw paw, next time beware
Don't pick the prickly pear by paw, when you pick the pear try to use the claw
But you don't need to use the claw
When you pick a pear of the big paw-paw, have I given you a clue?
The bare necessities of life will come to you, they'll come to you

So try to relax in my backyard if you act like that bee acts, you're workin' too hard
Don't spend your time just 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
