"Baloo's Blues" is a song featured on the Disney record More Jungle Book... Further Adventures of Baloo and Mowgli, which was released as a follow-up to The Jungle Book. The song was written by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, and sung by Phil Harris as Baloo.

The song was later included as a bonus track on the 1990 and 1997 re-issues of The Jungle Book soundtrack.

Lyrics

It's a blue, blue jungle
Ev'ry vine, ev'ry tree
Yes, it's a blue, blue jungle
Not like it used to be
Because my little buddy
My little Mowgli's far from me
An' I got the misery

Oh, they civilized my mancub
Washed his face and combed his hair–sticky gooey stuff, yeah
They civilized my mancub
Gave him way-out clothes to where–nowhere
They're messin' with my Mowgli
And he would've made one swell bear

Oh, I'm on the road to ruin
Stewin' 'bout him night 'n day
Yes, I'm just a broodin' bruin
Stewin' while I'm turnin' gray
I've got to have my mancub
Gotta get him back here right away–someway

And if anybody tries to stop me
He better bring all the help he can
Hear me talkin' to ya
I said if anybody tries to stop me
He gonna get a one-way ticket to the promised land
I'm preachin' now
'Cause I'm gonna cave in his casaba
I'm gonna pull it off
And then lay it in his hand

I've got those sad-about-'im
Can't-live-without-'im
Baloo blues
