The Lyrics

#49. Haven't submitted to this site in four years but I'm back with a humorous but sad tale of the recession's effect on our favorite childhood forest.
I've been depressed for a moment
My Eeyore has lost his tail again
And I cannot
Go to the woods, not anymore

My Tigger has stopped his bounding,
Cuz he feels down, and the wonderful thing
About this is
Nothing is wonderful at all

Piglet, there's still time for you
Find a farm with children too
Piglet,
There just ain't a way keeping you here
When they're closing down the 100 Acre Woods

Well, Chris was here for a moment
Became a man, went to college but he
Couldn't get a job.
Recession hit them hard.
They had to sell off his assets
But no one wanted to bid on the trees
They heard the tales - Heffalumps kept the buyers out

Kanga, there's still time for you
Find a future for your Roo or else
You'll end up in the zoo
Tut, tut, oh, this looks like pain
Kanga,
There just ain't a way keeping you here
When they're closing down the 100 Acre Woods

As time goes by
Suddenly the wise
unblinking eye
of the Owl is gone
The Rabbit's asking why
And movin on

Investors came for a moment
The woozle rumors have scared them away
And I cannot go to the woods, not anymore

Winnie, there's still time for you
Time to do what Pooh bears do
Get your pots, get on your way
Just don't get stuck, no way

Oh, Pooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Pooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Pooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Gopher, there's still time for you
Time to tunnel out there, too
Hey, Gopher
There just ain't a way keeping you here
When they're closing down the 100 Acre Woods
For proof of pacing, sing along to the original here. Go here for other writings of mine.

TPM - A sad tale of lost innocence, similar to the pangs I felt when I read Christopher Robin Milne's actual obituary in Time Magazine a few years back. Fine bittersweet job. ;D
