House at Pooh Corner

Album: Uncle Charlie & His Dog Teddy (1970)
Charted: 53
  • Christopher Robin and I walked along,
    Under branches lit up by the moon.
    Posing our questions to Owl and Eeyore,

    As the days disappeared far too soon.
    Now I wandered much further today than I should,
    And I can't find my way to the three-acre wood.
    So help me if you can, I've got to get

    Back to the house At Pooh Corner by one.
    You'll be surprised, there's so much to be done,
    Count all the bees in the hive,
    Chase all the clouds from the sky,

    Back to the days of Christopher Robin,
    And Pooh.
    Winnie the Pooh doesn't know what to do,
    Got a honey jar stuck on his nose.

    He came to me asking help and advice,
    And from here no one knows where he goes.
    So I went in to ask of the Owl, if he's there,
    How to loosen a jar from the nose of a bear.

    So help me if you can I've got to get,
    Back to the house At Pooh Corner by one.
    You'll be surprised there's so much to be done,
    Count all the bees in the hive,

    Chase all the clouds from the sky,
    Back to the days of Christopher Robin,
    Back to the ways of Christopher Robin,
    And Pooh. Writer/s: KENNETH CLARK LOGGINS

  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdKenny also did a song for Disney's "The Tigger Movie" co-written with Richard and Robert Sherman
    who did the songs for the original Pooh cartoons.

  • Ben from Chelsea, MeLoved this song growing up.
  • Guy from Woodinville, WaFor those of us raised on the delightful Winnie-the-Pooh (before it was bastardized by Walt Disney), Loggins did a masterful job of capturing with wistful gentleness of Pooh's and Christopher Robin's world. Bringing it full circle by Returning to Pooh Corner as an adult with a child was a stroke of genius!
