OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    C4

Allemande your corner lady, then do the daisy chain
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities are Mother Nature's recipes
That bring the bare necessities of life
Where e'er you go
, when ya meet your own
You dosado and promenade her home
It's a short walk with me, we'll find happiness, you'll see
Swingin' round, merrily, a bare necessity


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head 2 ladies chain, roll promenade 3/4 this Jane
3/4 round the ring you go
2 & 4 (1 & 3) right & left thru, take time, avoid all grief
Double pass thru, then cloverleaf
Square thru 3/4 and the corner swing
Left allemande, promenade the ring
*Bees are buzzin' in the trees, a-makin' honey just for me
Swing around a happy she, a bare necessity


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Don't spend your time a-lookin' round
For things that can't be found


(Daisy Chain: Starting with a right to partner and a left to the next, turn back one for a right hand swing. Then forward again with a left and right and turn back one for a left hand swing; then forward again with a right & left. Turn back one for a right hand swing, then forward again with a left and right to partner. Action is always forward two and back one. In this case instead of giving a right to partner at end, do a dosado with partner.)

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.
