Lyrics

Full Song

Owl: It's a Giant creature with a tail
Here, I'll draw Piglet in for scale

Piglet: Oh d-d-dear!

Its hide is like a shaggy rug
Its face a surly ugly mug
With two sharp horns atop its head
In between a mop of hair that's red

All: Aah!

And in its nose a ring of gold
It smells of monkey's feet and mould
Its toes are black
Its fur is blue
I swear that all I tell you is not made up
The Backson!
All: The Backson?
Owl: The Backson!
All: The Backson?
Oh, no!
Pooh: But, Owl, what does the Backson do?
All: Yes, Owl, what does the Backson do?
Owl: Hmm, what does the Backson do?
I'm thinking, I'm thinking, I'm thinking, I'm thinking...And now, I will tell you
They sneak into your library?
And scribble in all your books
All: The Backson, the Backson?
We don't like the Backson!
Owl: When decorating your Christmas tree,
They tangle up all the hooks!
All: The Backson, the Backson?
We're afraid of the Backson.
Owl: They spoil the milk,
They stop all the clocks;
They use their horns
To put hole in your socks
All: The Backson's
The one who's been
Putting holes
In our socks!

Roo: Tell us more about what Backsons do!
Tigger: Yes, more about what Backsons do!
Owl: More about what Backsons do?!?
Why don't we hear some thoughts from you?
Tigger: Maybe they make ya sleep too late
Owl: Yes, yes! That's good; that's great
Eeyore: I bet, for their reason, my tail is gone
Owl: You're on a roll! Go on, go on!
Rabbit: They muddy up your tidy house
Piglet: They make you feel as small as a mouse
Roo: They break your crayons
Rabbit: They spill your tea!
Kanga: They wake up babies at 1:00 and 3:00
Eeyore: They made me catch the cold I caught
Winnie the Pooh: They made me lose my train of thought
Tigger: They swipe your stripes
Piglet: They clog your pipes
Rabbit: They dig up your garden
Eeyore: They won't beg your pardon
Winnie the Pooh: They eat your snacks
Piglet: They won't relax!
Rabbit: They chip your tooth
Kanga: They steal your youth!
Owl: And now, you know the horrible truth!
All: The Backson, the Backson,
The Backson, the Backson?
Oh no!

Rabbit: Oh, yes
All: Huh?

Rabbit: I know exactly what to do:
We'll find things Backsons are partial to
Winnie the Pooh: Like books?
Kanga: And dishes?
Piglet: And socks?
Roo: And toys?
Rabbit: Yes, everything that a Backson destroys;
Then we'll dig an enormous pit
And make the items lead to it;
He'll fall in and we'll get our friend
Owl: And this horrible nightmare will come to an end!
The Backson!
All: The Backson!
Owl: The Backson!
All: The Backson!


Owl: Go home and search your closets, bring everything that you can
All: The Backson! The Backson! We're gonna catch the Backson!
Owl: We'll save Christopher Robin by following Rabbit's plan
All: The Backson! The Backson! We'll save Christopher Robin!
We must be brave and have no fear
Owl: So to the death, we'll persevere
All: We'll search by the sun and the light and the moon,
And if everything goes well, we'll be back soon!
Owl: "Back soon"?
All: Back soon!
Owl: Sounds like "Backson"
All: Back soon!
Owl: Oh, well... Good luck everyone!

Short Version (Mini Adventures of Winnie the Pooh)

Owl: It's a Giant creature with a tail
Here, I'll draw Piglet in for scale

Piglet: Oh d-d-dear!

Its hide is like a shaggy rug
Its face a surly ugly mug
With two sharp horns atop its head
In between a mop of hair that's red

All: Aah!

And in its nose a ring of gold
It smells of monkey's feet and mould
Its toes are black
Its fur is blue
I swear that all I tell you is not made up
The Backson!
All: The Backson?
Oh no!

Rabbit: Oh, yes
All: Huh?

Rabbit: I know exactly what to do:
We'll find things Backsons are partial to
Winnie the Pooh: Like books?
Kanga: And dishes?
Piglet: And socks?
Roo: And toys?
Rabbit: Yes, everything that a Backson destroys;
Then we'll dig an enormous pit
And make the items lead to it;
He'll fall in and we'll get our friend
Owl: And this horrible nightmare will come to an end!
The Backson!
All: The Backson!
Owl: The Backson!
All: The Backson!


Owl: Go home and search your closets, bring everything that you can
All: The Backson! The Backson! We're gonna catch the Backson!
Owl: We'll save Christopher Robin by following Rabbit's plan
All: The Backson! The Backson! We'll save Christopher Robin!
We must be brave and have no fear
Owl: So to the death, we'll persevere
All: We'll search by the sun and the light and the moon,
And if everything goes well, we'll be back soon!
Owl: "Back soon"?
All: Back soon!
Owl: Sounds like "Backson"
