"Try a Little Something New" is a song from the Welcome to Pooh Corner Cable TV series which premiered in 1983 on the Disney Channel (which was also that channel's inaugural season). The song was written by the Academy Award winning songwriting duo of Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman.

Song placement

New episodes played from 1983-1986 in the first run. Reruns continued to air until 1997. The Sherman Brothers wrote five songs, one for each of the major characters to sing, repeatedly each week. A storyline would "belong" to one character and at the end of an episode, the appropriate character would sing his "lesson song".

About the song

"Try a Little Something New" is sung by Rabbit. It is about how Rabbit deals with his "naughty habits" of mundanity and stagnation.

Lyrics

Welcome to Pooh Corner version

Every great magician
Has a grand admission
To become the greatest one of all.
No one liked my magic,
It was getting tragic,
Til I looked into my crystal ball
And it said:

Try a little something new,
Try a little something different,
Try a little something no one else has done.
Take a little different view,
Try a little something new,
That's the little magic trick to having fun, fun, fun
That's the little magic trick to having fun!

I used to be a rabbit,
With a lonely habit,
I never ever tried to make a friend.

Then I met old Pooh Bear,
And Owl, Roo and you there
Now all my lonely days are at an end
Because I

Tried a little something new,
Tried a little something different,
Tried a little something no one else has done.
I took a little different view,
Tried a little something new,
That's the little magic trick to having fun, fun, fun
That's the little magic trick to having fun!

Once I just ate carrots,
Then I tried a radish!
That led to a turnip and a beet.
Now it's greens and potatoes,
Squash and rutabagas,
Everyday there's something great to eat

Each day I try a little something new
Try a little something different,
Try a little something no one else has done.
I take a little different view,
Try a little something new,
That's the little magic trick to having fun, fun, fun
That's the little magic trick to having...

ABRACADABRA!

Fun!

Owl: There once was a musician With a grand ambition
To become the greatest one of all.
First, he tried out drumming
Then, he took up humming
'Til he looked into a crystal ball.
And it said...

Try a little something new
Try a little something different
Try a little something no one else has done.
Take a little different view
Try a little something new
That's a little simple trick to having fun, fun, fun, fun
That's a little simple trick to having fun.

Tigger: Once, There was a Rabbit
With a lonely habit
He never ever tried to make a friend.
But then, He met old Pooh Bear,
And me, And Roo, And you there.
Now, all his lonely days are at an end.
On account of because he...

Tigger & Owl:Tried a little something new
