This song was inspired by A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh


There was a bear
a bear bear bear
of very little brain
coming up with good ideas
he'd always save the day

your head got suck in the honey jar again
pooh bear loves that honey

There was a bear
a bear bear bear
who's always singing songs
loud and clear to himself
makes them up as he goes a long

bop bop bop bop bedlee dee
hey yong yong he hong hey
doot doo dooo
shree shra shra shra ra

I'm gonna eat a sandwich
i'm gonna eat a sandwich
that's what I'm talking about
making it up as I go along
shooba dooby dooby dobby you're a ding
ding dong ding ding a dong dong
you are a ding ding a dong dong

There was a bear
a bear bear bear
his friend was super sad
his donkey friend lost his tail
it was the only one he had

Pooh bear solved that mystery
put the tail back where it's supposed to be
reattached it to that donkey's rear end
Chirstopher Robin nailed it back on

there ain't no party like a pooh party
the best kind of party is a pooh party

gonna eat some cake at the pooh party
gonna eat some cake yeah you and me
gonna eat some cake with all our furry friends
even Eor will be there
