Kenny Loggins Return To Pooh Corner Lyrics

Last updated: 06/15/2014 06:12:35 PM

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 seem 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
From here no one knows where he goes
So I sent him to ask of the Owl if he's there
How to loosen a jar from the nose of a bear

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

It's hard to explain how a few precious things
Seem to follow throughout all our lives
After all's said and done I was watching my son
Sleeping there with my bear by his side
So I tucked him in, I kissed him and as I was going
I swear that the old bear whispered "Boy welcome home"

Believe me if you can
I've finally come back
To the House at Pooh Corner by one
What do you know
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
Back to the days of Pooh

FOREVER IN MY HEART | Reviewer: auntie Jane | 6/14/14

MY Brother who has died sang this song to me and played his guitar all through my life. I am so grateful you have sang it to me and I have the words to remember forever

brings a tear to my eyes | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/26/13

I would listen to this with my grandson many years ago. Also was the song playing when I got word of my nephews death and makes me think of him when I hear it even now. Always makes me smile along with a tear. So glad Kenny wrote this song feels like it was written just for us.

Simplicity | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/16/12

This song teaches a valuable life lesson about simplicity. About 20 years ago I was really struggling with balancing my hectic life. My then toddler daughter asked "Mommy, why can't you stay home from work with me?" That was enough to convince me to leave a high paying but stressful job. On my last day of work, I was driving to the day care to pick her up when this song came on the radio. It let me know I made the right decision. The simple things, like counting all the bees in the hive, are really the most important things in life. I will never forget that moment. It was such an epiphany for me. My daughter is now graduating college and she has said more than once what a good role model I was to her. This song will always remind me of the bond we have.

Love song | Reviewer: Roma | 10/11/11

It heals my soul whenever I hear this song. It reminds me of my dear loved one. This is his favorite song. I get very emotional because I lost him. Its melody is great. i love to hum this song while reminiscing our sweet memories.

Old song has new meaning! | Reviewer: Debbie | 7/15/11

I have always loved this song! When my youngest son was about 4 years old, a dear friend bought him a whole set of the Pooh beanie babies. Paul, my friend, loved to sing this song to my son. Every night when he was ready for bed, he would gather his pooh babies, and I would sing it to him as he fell asleep.
Many years have gone bye since then, but a few days ago, I was feeling really down as I had just lost my dear friend. My wonderful son came up to me & as he hugged me oh so tightly, he started singing this song! It made my whole world a brighter place! He told me that the song was stuck in his head ever since we had heard of my friend's passing. It made it seem as if our friend was using it as a way to comfort both of us.

The best father | Reviewer: Michelle | 7/12/11

My father would put on his knee and pull out hos guitar and sing this song to me, as I got older he still sang this song to me. He passed away Thursday 7/7/11. Even though kenny loggins gets full credit for this song, this was my favorite song by the best father ever. I love you daddy. R.I.P.

I never thought I'd hear this song again... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/26/11

When i was little, my parents and i used to go to music in the park. I always used to request the song Return to Pooh Corner. I used to call it "Christopher Robin." I'm in high school now, and lately i've had this tune stuck in my head, and i couldn't figure out what it was from. I just heard the song Return to Pooh corner yesterday, and that is where the tune was from. Hearing that song made my whole day because i haven't heard that song since i was 4.

This song is great | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/19/11

I used to hear this song every time I was at the dentist. It made me comfortable at a place you hate being at. Years later I knew that I had to learn the lyrics to sing to my two sons. It is now requested by my oldest (2 years old) and I am sure my youngest (1year old) will want the same as it calms them down for the night. My wife has never heard this song on the radio, but had to learn the song through request.

Memories | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/9/11

I first heard this song when I was in high school, I t's funny how an interpretation of this song changes through the years. Though I've never really grown to watching the series, it became one of the few songs to have made me look back and reminisce my fondest of childhood memories. And now that I have a daughter of my own, I can only wish for her to have the most of her childhood years - starting with this song.

New son | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/5/10

My mother used to sing this to me when I was small, among others and it has always stood out in my memories. I now sing this to my son(8 months) and so does my mother when she visits. He always get so quiet and still when I sing this. I bet this will be a fav for him to. Great song!

memories | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/14/10

my mom used to sing this to me when i was a toddler. i used to love this and havent heard it in a while. i just thought about it and started listening to it. this is such an amazing song and it brought back so many great memories. i love it

Full House | Reviewer: Katie | 10/17/09

I am thirteen and I first heard this song while watching an episode of Full House. I found the song touchingly sweet and went online to find the lyrics. When I found them I started softly singing it to myself when my mother goes, "My, I haven't heard that song in years." "Did you know it before?" I asked her. She looked at me and smiled, "Yes," she said "I used to sing that to you when you were a little girl." It made me so sad and looking at the lyrics you can tell that the writer put much thought into them.

Old Memories | Reviewer: Grace | 9/20/09

When I was a girl scout and we were homesick at camp, our counselors would sing this to us. I went to camp 4-5 years, and each year I would cry. I'm 14 now, and this came on the radio last night, and I couldnt stop sobbing. I am proud to say this is my favorite song.

What goes around | Reviewer: Monica | 2/4/09

One of Kenny Loggins best. It has always touched my heart however only now that I have a grandson does it bring a tear to my eye everytime. When I stand over his crib and watch him sleep I realize the true meaning of the words.

Back to grade school... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/29/08

This song was introduced to me through a teacher I disliked back in grade 3. It's pleasing to say that this song was the one good thing that I ever experienced from this teacher. I'm now in high school but yet it is still one of my top songs.
