The Bare Necessities video song from The Jungle Book (1967)
music and lyrics by Terry Gilkyson, performed by Phil Harris (Baloo), Bruce Reitherman (Mowgli)
Look for the, Bear Necessities
The simple bear Necessitites,
Forget about your worries and your strife.
I mean the, Bear Necessities
Oh, Mother Nature's recipies that bring the Bear Necessities to life.
Where-ever I wander, where-ever I rome,
I couldn't be fonder, of my big home.
The bees are buzzin in the trees
To make some honey just for me.
When you look under the rocks and plants,
Take a glance at the fancy ants
And maybe try a few!
The Bear Necessities of life will come to you!
Look for the Bear Necessities,
The simple Bear Necessities,
Forget about your worries and your strife!
I mean the Bear Necessities,
It's why a bear can rest-at-ease
With just the Bear Necessities of life!
Now when you pick a raw paw, or prickly pear.
And you pick a raw paw, next time beware.
Don't pick the prickly pear by paw
When you try to pick, try to use the claw.
But you don't need to use the claw
When you pick-a-pear from the big paw paw.
Have I given you a clue?
The Bear Necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you.
