"Mind Over Matter
" is a song from The Many Adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh.
Kanga and Roo: Hurray for you
Winnie the Pooh: Hurray for me
Christopher Robin and Eeyore: Hurray, Hurray
Christopher Robin, Owl and Eeyore: The Pooh will soon be free
Christopher Robin, Kanga, Roo and Owl: Dum da dum pa rum pa rum pa rum
Now the time has come for proving what the diet did to Pooh
Christopher Robin, Kanga, Roo, Owl and Eeyore: And since we pledged he'd be unwedged that's what we're going to do
He'll be pulled and he'll be tugged and eventually unplugged
We'll have a tug of war To open rabbit's door
And out the Pooh will go-ish
For mind over matter has made the Pooh un-fatter
Heave Heave Heave Heave Heeeeeeeeeave
Mind Over Matter
Will make the Pooh un-fatter
It's a fine thing to go feasting,
But feasting doesn't pay
For you have feasted and increased
In a most obesely way
From food you must refrain, or a wedged bear you'll remain
Though it will be a strain, for a bear of little brain
Think shrinkage, Think thinnage
Don't think of honey and spinach
Mind over matter
Will make the Pooh un-fatter
After many days of fasting,
All hopes were high for Pooh
Then lightning flashed, and thunder crashed
The rain fell from the blue
They knew if Pooh got wet, their plan would be upset
He'd swell up like a sponge and down their hopes would plunge
So, they mopped him, un-sopped him
They put a roof on topped him
But the splash and the splatter
Was making Pooh Bear fatter
Despite their good intentions
Pooh doubled his dimensions!
When the sun came out, the sky cleared up
And the bear of little thinkage
Began to dry and by and by
Showed a high amount of shrinkage
