Colonel Hathi's March
Colonel Hathi

Hup two three four
Keep it up, two three four
Hup two three four
Keep it up, 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
Over 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



The Bare Necessities
Baloo & Mowgli

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
Well, 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

Both
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

With just the bare necessities of life



I Wan'na Be Like You
King Louie & Baloo


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 botherin' me
I wanna be a man, mancub
And stroll right into town
And be just like the other men
I'm tired of monkeyin' around!

Oh, oobee doo
I wanna be like you
I wanna walk like you
Talk like you, too
You'll see it's true
An ape like me
Can learn to be hu-u-uman too-oo-ooh

Now here's your part of the deal, cuz
Lay the secret on me of man's red fire

Mowgli
But I don't know how to make fire

King Louie
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
Give me the secret, mancub
Come on, clue me what to do
Give me the power of man's red flower
So I can be like you

You-hoo-hoo
I wanna be like you-hoo-hoo

King Louie & Baloo
I wanna walk like you
talk like you do-ooh-ooh

King Louie
You'll see it's true-ue-ue
Someone like me
Can learn to be
Like someone like me
Can learn to be
Like someone like you

Baloo
Can learn to be
Like someone like me!



Trust In Me
Kaa (the snake)

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



That's What Friends Are For
Vultures

We're your friends
We're your friends
We're your friends to the bitter end
the bitter end

When you're alone, when you're 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, looking in
Who's there to open the door?
That's what friends are for!

Who's always eager to extend
A friendly 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 never met an animal
We didn't like

Mowgli
didn't like

So, you can see we're friends
Friends in need
We're friends in need
and friends indeed
Friends indeed
Oh, friends indeed
We'll keep you safe
in the jungle
Forevermore

Shere Khan
That's what friends
Are for



My Own Home
Sari (village girl)

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 that I'm grown
Till I'm grown, till I'm grown
I must go to fetch the water
Till the day that I'm 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
