11 The Bare Necessities (lyrics with vocab and the music) – Kipling – The Jungle Book

Kipling: The Jungle Book

“The Kipling stories offer a marked perspective of a reminder of human origins and history as well as animal. As the Native American and other Indigenous Peoples often state: All are related under one sky. A reading of The Jungle Book at age 90 will reach several more levels of meaning than a childhood reading and both are just as brilliant an experience. The stories can be shared inter-generationally, with interpretations shared by all. The book is a group of stories that are actually quite good for “Grandparents in the School” types of family literacy programs of the current day.” (read more about it here)

Look for the bare necessitiesThe simple bare necessitiesForget about your worries and your strife.I mean the bare necessitiesOld Mother Nature’s recipesThat 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

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 clawWhen you pick a pear of the big pawpawHave I given you a clue?The bare necessities of life will come to youThey’ll come to you!So just try and relax, yeah cool itFall 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.

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.
