Song lyrics


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

Till I'm grown
Till I'm grown
I must go to 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 my home

Snapshot pictures

Father's hunting in the forest
Father's hunting in the forest
  Mother's cooking in the home
Mother's cooking in the home
I must go to fetch the water
I must go to fetch the water
  Till the day that I am grown
Till the day that I am grown
The song is included in The Jungle Book Movie Songs
