Today VS Childhood

Then today, I was inspired to start quoting this to people who probably won’t know what the hell I was talking about;


Heffalumps and Woozles
From:  Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day
Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman

They’re black they’re brown they’re up their down
They’re in they’re out they’re all about
They’re far they’re near they’re gone they’re here
They’re quick and slick and insincere
Beware Beware Be a very wary bear
A Heffalump or Woozle is very confusel
The Heffalump or woosel is very sly
– sly – sly – sly
They come in ones and twoosels
but if they so choosels
before your eyes you’ll see them multiply
– ply – ply – ply
They’re extra-ordinary so better be wary
Because they come in every shape and size
– size – size – size
If honey is what you covet you’ll find that they love it
Because they guzzle up the thing you prize
They’re green they’re blue they’re pink they’re white
They’re round they’re square they’re a terrible sight
They tie themselves in horrible knots
They come in stripes or polka-dots
Beware Beware Be a very wary bear
{musical interlude}
They’re extra-ordinary so better be wary
Because they come in every shape and size
– size – size – size
If honey’s what you covet you’ll find that they love it
Because they guzzle up the things you prize
They’re black they’re brown they’re up their down
They’re in they’re out they’re all about
They’re far they’re near they’re gone they’re here
They’re quick and slick and insincere
Beware Beware Beware Beware Beware ….

I was always scared of the Heffalumps and Woozles. Then I grew up. So, you see. I’ve been pretty nestalgic lately!
