"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

Think heave-ish

Think ho-ish

And out the Pooh will go-ish

For mind over matter has made the Pooh un-fatter





Heave Heave Heave Heave Heeeeeeeeeave

Deleted lyrics

Verse 1

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


Verse 2

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!

Verse 3

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
