                C 
 Look for the bare necessities
       F 
 The simple bare necessities
     C               Am                 Dm G
 Forget about your worries and your strife
            C             C7
 I mean the bare necessities
      F 
 Old Mother Nature's recipes

 That bring the bare necessities of life

 [VERSE] 
               G                 C
 Wherever I wander, wherever I roam
                 G                C C7
 I couldn't be fonder of my big home
                F               Fm
 The bees are buzzin' in the tree
               C             D7
 To make some honey just for me
            Dm           G
 When you look under the rocks and plants
   G
 And take a glance at the fancy ants
       C            Dm G
 Then maybe try a few

 

 [Skit: Baloo, Mowgli & Bagheera]

 You eat ants?

 Hahaha, you gotta believe it

 And you're gonna love the way they tickle

 Mowgli, look out!

 They'll come to you

 [VERSE] 
                         G
 Now when you pick a pawpaw
               C 
 Or a prickly pear (Ow!)
                  G
 And you prick a raw paw
             C C7
 Next time beware
                   F 
 Don't pick the prickly pear by the paw

 When you pick a pear
   C             D7
 Try to use the claw
                  G
 But you don't need to use the claw
          Dm                  G
 When you pick a pear of the big pawpaw
   C                  Dm G 
 Have I given you a clue?

 (Golly, thanks Baloo!)



 Paw paw, ha! Of all the silly gibberish

 C'mon Baggy, get with the beat!

 [PRE-CHORUS]  
               Dm                G            C 
 The bare necessities of life will come to you

 (They'll come to me!)

 They'll come to you
 
 [VERSE] 

 How about scratchin' that ol' left shoulder while you're up there, Mowgli?

 Now just a hair lower.. There, right there. That's it. Ahh..

 This is beautiful. That's good. Kid, we've got to get to a tree

 This calls for some big scratch!

 You're lots of fun, Baloo!

 Right on it.. Yeah! That's delicious! Oh, ooo! Just a little bit  

 Mmm.. yeah.. ha ha.. ooo

 Mm... mmm... ha ha.. ooo. yeah!

 Oh man, this is really livin'

 [BRIDGE] 

 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

 

 Ahh.. I give up. Well I hope his luck holds out

 Mowgli, how 'bout you singing?

 [CHORUS] 
                C         C7
 Look for the bare necessities
        F 
 The simple bare necessities
     C              Am                 Dm G
 Forget about your worries and your strife

 (Yeah, man!)
             C         C7
 I mean the bare necessities
        F             Fm
 Old Mother Nature's recipes
         C             Dm         G     C 
 That bring the bare necessities of life

 (Yeah!)

 With just the bare necessities of life

 Yeah, man!
