Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four honey bears* promenade inside the ring
Come back and swing your koala bear**
Join up your hands, circle to the left and you're gonna move it round the set
Then allemande left with the corner girl, you're gonna weave around the ring
Look for the bare necessities, simple bare necessities
Swing your girl, and promenade that lady home
I mean the bare necessities are Mother Nature's recipes
They bring the bare necessities of life


ALTERNATE LYRICS

* Girls: "Honey bears"

* Boys: "Koala bears", "Polar bears", "Panda bears", "Grisly bears"

(**Yes, I know "Koalas" are not technically bears, but for this dance we can pretend).


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands you go
Swing thru there you know
Spin your top, and then, go right & left thru
Square thru 3/4 round you go
Everybody swing and whirl, swing now with that pretty little girl
And promenade that lady fair around the ring you go
Look for the bare necessities, that's why a bear can rest at ease
With just the bare necessities of life

Bare Necessities
 
 

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

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

Lyrics by Richard M. Sherman.
Recorded by Phil Harris as Baloo and Bruce Reitherman as Mowgli.
