  • Lyrics
  • Christopher Robin and I walked along
    Under branches lit up by the moon.
    Posing our questions to owl and eeyore
    As our days disappeared all too soon.
    But I've wandered much further today than I should
    And I can't seeem to find my way back to the wood.
    So, help me if you can I've got to get
    Back to the house at Pooh corner by one.
    You;d 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 sent him to ask of te 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'd 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,
    Back to the days of Christopher Robin,
    Back to the ways of PoohWriter/s: KENNETH CLARK LOGGINS

  • Sara from Silver Spring, Mdthis belongs in the category "Songs originally recorded by other artists" same with "What a Fool Believes".
  • Troy from East Greenwich, RiThis song is amazing, deffinate favourite of mine when growing up!
  • 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.
    In concert he always gets the audience to sing
    along with.
  • 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!
