Loggins & Messina - House At Pooh Corner Lyrics




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

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

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, kissed him
And as I was going
I swear that old bear whispered
Boy, welcome home!

Believe me if you can, I've got to get
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 and Pooh
Back to the ways of Christopher Robin and Pooh
Back to the ways of Pooh

Loggins & Messina House At Pooh Corner Comments
  1. Tyrone Umbilical

    Incredibly, 17-year-old Loggins wrote this song about his impending high school graduation.
    Loggins said: "The last chapter (of Winnie the Pooh) is where Christopher Robin is leaving the Hundred Acre Wood, and he's telling everybody goodbye. I felt like that was akin to what I was going through in high school. Some part of me knew that I was leaving my childhood behind. I didn't really think it through like that. It just sort of came through."
    Amazing to have that depth of insight and be able to articulate it at such a young age.

  2. Shannon S.

    This song is great for chilling me out when I feel manic. It's a natural chill pill! 😁

  3. Don

    Our oldest son watched Winnie the Pooh on VHS over and over when he was 4 or 5. He's 38 now. This song reminds me of those long ago days.

  4. Robert Cavalier

    Adults are just overgrown kids. This song proves it. * Cav *

  5. John Rinehart

    Loggins and messina,balm for my heart.like a ray of sunshine that seems to find all the darkness

    Tyrone Umbilical

    Oh, bruddah...what a maroon!! 👀👻🍺

  6. sauquoit13456

    Innocence...

  7. Carlos Vargas

    El beto la fabi el minimi el giovanni eres pooh y yo el winnie the pooh

  8. Baron Taylor

    Winnie was a real bear from White River Ontario that lived in the London Zoo during WW1 and Christopher Robin was A A Milne's son

  9. jack watkins

    People are still hanging out the 2019 most of us anyhow. We've lost a few greats in 2019 but well I'm well into my sixties and hanging on by a hair. Still like the music of the 60s and 70s and I guess 80s also has some good music. But I've done s*** that would make The Walking Dead run but some of those songs I still listen to will break the damn tears out half the time. I don't know if it's melancholy, missing what we had back then because things have totally went to hell now. But you know I never turn my radio on. I have a USB port on my radio so I just keep it plugged in and it automatically comes on when I get in the vehicle or if I come in the house I just turned it on the computer. I've got a couple of thousand songs recorded and I never listen to the radio anymore. But ain't no need to getting all sentimental and s*** y'all carry on!

  10. Dennis Crabtree

    A song, book and movie every kid should experience.

  11. suzie183

    Almost done with 2019, still love this song.

    Nov 2019..still one of my favorite song😍

  13. William Chadwick

    John Taylor

    I danced with daughter at her wedding ,I honestly didn't know her when she came down the stairs before walking her down the aisle , she said house at Pooh corner will never be the same and we smiled

  22. Bob Wallace

    What a wonderful song to hear. It takes me back to a gentler time in my life.

  23. Max Hughey

    This song has always been the very definition of bittersweet for me.

  24. Mama Jacqueroo

    At my age, this song brings tears to my eyes now. I'm old now.

    Dennis Crabtree

    You're only as old as you think. I think listening to this song makes us younger.

  25. Melanie GrayWolf

    The essence of innocence and purity.

  26. Jordan Freytag

    I'll always remember those road trips with just my mom and me, listening to this song repeatedly on tape--along with a hoard of other oldies that are near and dear to me.

  27. DjIns1ght

    17-year-old Kenny Loggins wasn't going to be able to record his song "House at Pooh Corner" because Disney was enforcing their copyright to Winnie the Pooh. Upset, he mentioned this to his girlfriend, only to find out her dad was the president of Disney– he soon got permission.

    RealityBytes

    Which is even more ridiculous since Disney didn’t create Pooh, A. A. Milne did.

    Song Salieri

    Much love your way Judith. My children were all grown when I lost my husband and that was hard.
    You have a wonderful memory and that's beautiful.
    If you ever need some understanding, don't be afraid to holler.

  36. Benniloco

    I'm digging the cut of your jib! So I supported & Smashed the THUMBS UP!!💕 Thank you for putting together some really fine music for our listening pleasure!😁 CHEERS! 💕

  37. Robert Cavalier

    We at Woodhull - Lawrenceville School, NJ - around 1973 & 1974 - played this great tune upstairs with my roommate Kevin Rosenburg of Philadelphia!  It was a tender, teen moment!  Kevin was my pal; I had a great time in "The Garden State"!  A melodic classic from a special time in our lives!  Smooth as a sip of Southern Comfort!  Cheers from Cav ~ L'76!

  38. Cherie Saxton

    This is my original. Back to my daze of stoned.

  39. Cherie Saxton

    Best, Every kid song.

  40. John Biela

    40 yrs later, this song has a special meaning:
    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.

    Luckily, my grandchildren know the way.

  42. Carlton Knox

    🌸💐one of the most beautiful songs there is

  53. CySSiooo

    1:27 Daft Punk sampled it in Face to Face

  54. Jackson Rushing

    The entire original cast is gone now, and several of their replacements have passed on as well.

  55. Chris Kellison

    This song to me is a deeper song about a simpler time in every life that we can never get back. And a lesson in moving on from childhood and childish thinking. These guys were really great then and still are relevant in the words and wisdom of aging.👽👁

  56. Roger Del Turco

    I got to see the group in Philadelphia at the old Spectrum. What a show. This was a long time ago.

  57. Richard Cooper

    Holy shit this song reminds me of the good old days of music

    Whenever I hear this song, it makes me want to burst into tears. Even though I'm an adult now, I still look back on this franchise fondly, and I even watch some of the movies or TV episodes every now and then.

    Pia Hansen

    Jackson Rushing....Join the club lol....I'm in my 60;s now and it still does that to me too....:)

    Brent Johnson

    I understand, my girls are adults now but they loved this song as they loved Winnie the Pooh.

    Fred Flintstone

    @Pia Hansen What you said....

  62. Adrian Ghandtchi

    I love Kenny loggins but I hate to say this too: I'm here also because of a face to face sample.

    Love this song, although I prob shouldn't admit it in public. I bought the LP too :)

    Just For Fun

    It's a great song, for sure. I read somewhere that Kenny Loggins wrote House At Pooh Corner when he found his life was getting a little "out of control". His thought was to get back to "simpler times". My, how we ALL could learn from that these days!! Raising a glass of "cheer" to "simpler times".

    Just For Fun

    Also, by the way, don't be shy of admitting it publicly...sing it to the world!!

    Patrick Mack

    It's great to have a heart. grads to you

    What is there to be ashamed about liking Kenny Loggins?

  70. S Sully

    Winnie the Pooh -- cuddly, wuddly, duddly ole bear!
    THANKS Kenny and Jim for this WONDERFUL SONG!!
    I have passed my love of it to my daughter and all the many young ones that have filled my life.

  71. Lori French

  75. Laurylie Norman

    I prefer this, the original. Return to pooh corner does not bring back the sweet and simple innocence, whimsical quality of hearing these two play and harmonize together...
    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 advise
    And from here no one knows where he goes
    So I sent him to ask of the owl if he's there
    How to loosen the jar from the nose of a bear

    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

    Thanks for the lyrics !

    The original was performed by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band first, Kenny Loggins wrote it, but the Nitty Grity Dirt Band released it first...

    Brody G....Yer comment busted me up! Never noticed that before, but then again I am a guy. Looks like he's wearing nut busting clam diggers! Makes me ache just looking at it. Didn't know a guy could have a camel toe lol! Never cared for Pooh bear - I was a Bugs Bunny kinda guy. Nut huggers aside - I sure like Kenny. Loads of talent and another one of his many awesome songs!

  77. wendi hill

    One of the most wonderful songs of all time,  My little boy led me to The Corner when he was the most precious baby ever born, and made his way to me There for the most glorious days and years of my life.  I don’t tuck him in anymore – my little boy has grown into the most extraordinary young man, and he is getting married this fall.  I couldn't be more proud or delighted, but still… I will wait Here for him…. There’s so much to be done…

    PastriesOfZaWarudo

    Well is he married yet???

  78. Robert Cavalier

    This tune reminds me of sweet times at The Lawrenceville School, NJ from 1973 to 1976.  I even remember my first roommate: Kevin Rosenberg of Philly!  I saw the dude at 1 of our reunions on campus!  Tunes kept our Woodhull House together!  Thank you to Champ Atlee & Al Phipett!  We had sports, good food, small classes, & Princeton University just a bus ride away.  Thanks to my parents: The late William S. Cavalier, Jr. (1924 - 1979) & my still alive, wonderful Mom: Cecilia Cavalier Dubois of North Texas!  With love, nostalgia, & best wishes from Robert Cavalier in NW Oregon!  4/2/15.  *

    What beautiful words for a beautiful song.

    Stephan Susholtz

    Those are the lyrics to the follow up song Return to Pooh Corner by K-Log.

  81. Dennis Sanchez

    Great song!  They were great together!  Too bad they had to break up!

  82. John Martini

    If you go to 3:50 onward to the end, that's where the true mysticism of this song lies. For my money, this last bit is the best piece of music they ever made or recorded. 

  83. Brody G

    I love this song but Kenny has possibly the worst camel toe I've ever seen in the pic on the album cover

    oneyedlucy

    +Brody G HAHAHAHAHAHA! That's hilarious! I had to go back and check it out! You're right! Camel toe!

    Arreanna Catlin

    In the 70's we were far too wasted to care about trivial things like camel toes...or our asses hanging out of our cut-offs

    Arreanna Catlin

    OOPS, Arreanna's mother-in-law on the wrong profile! HAHAHA Coulda been worse Anna!!

    Paul Agbuya

    Brody G, Went I saw that comment I looked at the cover again. Then that scene in Crocodile Dundee at the horseshoe bar played in my head. Thanks!

    Cheryl Medeiros

    Brody G thanks for making me crack up at 1130pm. Trying to wind down and go to sleep and lmfao! I guess sleep will not come anytime soon!

  84. JackinTheWoods

    Hate to break it to ya but the world wasn't any more simple when this song came out.
