Mowgli (spoken): Oh, Bagheera, before you send me away, let me tell you something that happened.
(sung): Last night I dreamed a most wonderful dream
Of places that I have once known
On the edge of the forest
By a clear water stream
Was a garden of flowers full grown
But I knew, oh, I knew I had been there before
Down the dark path of memories I roam
And when I saw a house with a wide-open door
Then I knew I belonged to that home
I knew, oh, I knew I belonged to it
Though it's all just a dream even so
It had something sweet as a song to it
That someone had sung long ago
A voice soft and lorn seemed to call out to me
"Welcome home, little wanderer"
and when I saw the face I was longing to see
I said "Mother oh, me mother"
And I knew I belonged to her
