Mind Over Matter written by the Sherman Brothers is a song from Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree.
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.
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!
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
Hurray for you. Hurray for me. Hurray, Hurray. The Pooh will soon be free.
Dum da dum pa rum pa rum pa rum. Now the time has come for proving what the diet did for Pooh. 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! Ho! Heave! Ho! Heave Heave Heave Heave Heeeeeeeeeave!
