"I Knew I Belonged to Her" is a deleted song from the 1967 Disney film, The Jungle Book written by Terry Gilkyson. It was to be sung by Mowgli to Bagheera. Like the songs by Gilkyson, save for "The Bare Necessities", this song was cut.


Mowgli (spoken): Oh, Bagheera, before you send me away, let me tell you something strange that happened.

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," only "Mother"
And I knew I belonged to her
