The Bare Necessities - Walt Disney

this songs sums up what thanksgiving is about... oh so endearing... Some controversy surrounding Walt Disney's concept is its just airy fairy, castle in the air, honey on the lips, rose-tinted world-ness that is Un-real. BUT, hey, we lost so much of childlike-ness we don't even know how to look for things to give thanks for!

Thanksgiving is not just thanking God for good things that happened to us, its actively looking for God in things to GIVE thanks for. And with disposable income growing by the zeros, what is really really UNREAL is what money cannot buy!

Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature's recipes
That brings the bare necessities of life

Wherever I wander, wherever I roam
I couldn't be fonder of my big home
The bees are buzzin' in the tree
To make some honey just for me
When you look under the rocks and plants
And take a glance at the fancy ants
Then maybe try a few

The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you!

Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
That's why a bear can rest at ease
With just the bare necessities of life

Now when you pick a pawpaw
Or a prickly pear
And you prick a raw paw
Next time beware
Don't pick the prickly pear by the paw
When you pick a pear
Try to use the claw
But you don't need to use the claw
When you pick a pear of the big pawpaw
Have I given you a clue ?

The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you!

So just try and relax, yeah cool it
Fall apart in my backyard
'Cause let me tell you something little britches
If you act like that bee acts, uh uh
You're working too hard

And don't spend your time lookin' around
For something you want that can't be found
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinkin' about it
I'll tell you something true

The bare necessities of life will come to you

(Reprise)
Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature's recipes
With just the bare necessities of life

You make me chuckle! When my husband and I were newly married, we used to sing this song to each other over and over... Yes, there are so many things money can't buy. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
